Outdoor commercial lighting fixtures are often the target of pest birds. These lofty poles, standalone signs and structures make an ideal perch for birds seeking refuge from predators. But if you own or maintain commercial property, you know that bird pests can eventually damage light fixtures and the sensors that activate them. Bird droppings can also leave an ugly pile of droppings under the signage. In either case, pest birds create an unwelcome maintenance and cleanup expense. One way to keep birds off your exterior lighting is to install pigeon spikes. Here's what the bird control experts at Bird-B-Gone recommend:
Stainless Steel Pigeon Spikes Are Built to Last
Proven time and again as an effective pest bird deterrent, Bird-B-Gone Stainless Steel Pigeon Spikes won't permit pest birds to land. These anti-perching, anti-roosting devices are widely used on exterior lighting and lampposts, keeping them bird free. Stainless steel spikes are extremely durable and virtually maintenance free. They're fabricated of marine-grade stainless steel and embedded into a UV-protected polycarbonate base--so they'll last for years outdoors, in rain and hot sun. The specially engineered flexible base allows the spiked strips to follow the curved surfaces of lampposts and signage. The spikes are crush-proof and have a non-reflective metal finish.
Wide Choice of Pigeon Spikes to Fit Your Need
Stainless steel spikes come in 1-, 3-, 5- and 8-inch widths to cover areas up to 8 inches wide. This means you can get pigeon spikes to fit your light pole or signage that protect increasingly wider areas of the structure. Each creates an effective and humane no landing zone wherever they're installed.
Mega Bird Spikes for Really Large Birds
If your light fixtures are being invaded by large birds like gulls, cormorants, turkey vultures or raptors, Bird-B-Gone has the solution: the Mega Spike. These large, 7-inch bird spikes will deter even the most persistent bird from your light pole or fixture. The spikes are made of marine-grade stainless steel and designed to last for years. Whether you choose Mega spikes or regular bird spikes, all are blunted at the tips, so they won't harm birds or installation crews. Bird-B-Gone bird spikes have been approved by the US Humane Society and PICAS.
Pigeon Spikes are Easy to Install
The base of each spiked strip is just 1.5 inches wide, so it can be installed on the narrowest of light poles and fixtures using screws, glue or tie downs. Pre-drilled holes or glue troughs make for easy installation. Before installing pigeon spikes, your maintenance crew should first clean the surface of any loose rust, peeling paint, bird droppings, feathers and nesting materials. Be sure to use commercial disinfecting cleaning agents to prevent exposure to any of the 60 known airborne diseases carried by birds.
