The non-conductive plastic material makes these spikes ideal for areas prone to electrical, communication, and transmission interference.

Bird Spike Surface Preparation
The first step prior to installing bird spikes is to clean and dry the area where bird spikes will be installed. Bird B Gone offers cleaning supplies to get the job started off right. As birds and their debris carry transmittable diseases, always use extreme care and wear proper personal protection gear. Visit Bird Control Safety for additional information on how to safely clean up bird droppings.
Bird Spike Adhesion
Surface should be clean and dry before installation. Select width of bird spike based on surface to be covered. For permanent placement, glue, screw, or tie down bird spike strips in conjunction with an outdoor construction grade adhesive.
If you planning to install clear spike with an adhesive, we suggest the use of E6100 as this adhesive dries clear.
