Choosing the correct spike solution

Bird deterrent spikes like Bird Barrier’s  Bird-Flite and Dura-Spike are highly effective ledge deterrents. They have been installed on thousands of buildings with  great success.  Selecting a spike solution requires careful understanding of the bird problem, bird pressure and species observed. Experience has shown that different bird control solutions work for different situations.

Never use a spike solution when the pressure is heavy, like an overnight roosting spot.  Typically these sites are ledges with an overhead cover of some sort (eave, roofline, etc.) The birds here will “fight” for their overnight spot and often move the spike with their bodies and or place nesting materials directly on top of the spike.

 

 

 

 

 

Spike is also not the most effective solution for birds larger than pigeons. As seen in the picture, larger birds can easily bend spike almost flat, even in daytime perch situations.

 

 

 

 

 

Bird Flite bird spikes are effective against pigeons and gulls. It is effective on ledges, parapets, window seals, signs, chimneys, roof peaks, lights etc. Bird-Flite is installed on thousands of U.S. buildings with an incredible success rate. Its stainless steel rods and U.V.-resistant polycarbonate base are very durable.
