Why You Need Commercial Grade Bird Spikes for Your Business

Written By: Alex Kecskes

Running a commercial business in these tough economic times can be a real challenge. Profit margins are slim, and the last thing you need is repair and maintenance costs to go up. But that can happen if you don’t have a bird control strategy. One that keeps pest birds out of signs, rooftop AC units, rain gutters and other elevated areas.

Birds nesting in your signage, for example, can cause electrical shorts and, in some cases, fires. Bird nests, feathers and related debris can also choke up exhaust fans and AC compressors. When birds build nests in your rain gutters during the summer, winter rains will produce overflows that can damage roofs.

Bird Spikes are an effective way to prevent birds from landing or roosting on your business. There are, however, many different varieties of bird spikes available in today’s market. Some are better suited for commercial businesses than others, as some bird spikes sold online are flimsy, require assembly and are not guaranteed.
