Keep Pest Birds off Your Storefront with Bird Spikes
Use Bird Spikes to Deter Pest Birds
Pest birds can also literally drive away customers, swooping down on them from the elevated perches of your store. No one likes to visit a store where birds are dive bombing them as they try to enter or leave. There’s also the nuisance of bird droppings, which can cover everything from windows, awnings and canopies to signage, doorknobs and walkways.
The solution, of course, is to employ some sort of bird control. One of the best bird control measures available today is bird spikes. Recommended for pigeons and other large birds, bird spikes have been used by thousands of store owners nationwide. They are easy to install and, in some cases, blend in with their surroundings to make them practically invisible.
Bird spikes remain an effective pest bird deterrent because they prevent pest birds from landing. No bird wants to get its wings tangled in a splay of nasty looking spikes. Better to simply find another, more bird-friendly landing area. Rest assured, the blunted spikes are safe and won’t harm our fine-feathered friends–they have been approved by a number of humane groups worldwide, including the U.S. Humane Society and PICAS (Pigeon Control Advisory Service).
Bird spikes come in strong, rigid polycarbonate or flexible stainless steel. Stainless steel bird spikes are available in 3-, 5- and 8-inch widths to cover areas up to 8 inches wide; plastic spikes come in 3-, 5- and 7-inch widths to protect areas up to 7 inches wide. The best spikes will provide many years of dependable deterrence, for they are made of marine-grade stainless steel and feature a U.V.-protected polycarbonate base. Some bird pikes come with a non-reflective metal finish, which means they won’t stand out on your roofline or parapet wall. You can even get spikes in a variety of colors to match your store’s signage, awnings or fixed canopies. Available colors include white, tan, gray, black, brown, brick red and crystal clear.
Pest birds often gather in rain gutters. In this case use Gutter Spikes. These specially designed bird spikes will keep pest birds out of your rain gutters. The spikes feature adjustable clamps at the base, which makes it easy to install them to the lip of a gutter.
