Bird Repellent Fence Spikes
Pigeon spikes are a humane way to deter pigeons from roosting or nesting on ledges, beams, or other flat surfaces. The spikes, which are typically made of plastic or stainless steel, are installed in a row along the surface to make it uncomfortable for pigeons to land. Pigeon spikes are an effective deterrent, but they do not harm the birds and do not need to be removed or replaced. Pigeon spikes are a long-term solution to deter birds from landing in certain areas.
Types of Pigeon Spikes
- Plastic spikes: These are the most common type of pigeon spikes and are made of durable, weather-resistant plastic. They come in a variety of sizes and can be easily installed with glue or adhesive.
- Stainless steel spikes: These spikes are more durable and long-lasting than plastic spikes, but they can also be more expensive. They come in a variety of sizes and are ideal for use in harsh environments.
- Spring-loaded spikes: These spikes are designed to flex when a pigeon lands on them, making it difficult for the bird to maintain its footing. They are more effective than traditional spikes and are less visible.
- Transparent spikes: These are made from transparent plastic and are less visible than traditional spikes, making them ideal for use in areas where aesthetics are important.
- Electric bird spikes: These are designed to give a small electric shock to the birds. They are not widely used and are not considered as humane as the other types.
It is important to note that no matter which type of spikes are used, it is essential to comply with the local regulations and laws regarding the use of bird deterrents.
