Pigeons and gulls can be a menace, which is why so many home owners, schools, businesses, etc. install pigeon spikes or seagull Pigeon Spikes & Seagull Spikes (Bird Ban Spikes) at low low prices from Insight Security Pigeons and gulls can be a menace, which is why so many home owners, schools, businesses, etc. install pigeon spikes or seagull spikes to deter the birds from perching or nesting on their buildings. Bird spikes do not cause the birds any harm, they simply deter them from landing on the protected areas. Before dashing out to buy your bird deterrent spikes however, there are a few tips from the experts worth considering; Why use bird deterrent spikes? Bird ban spikes are a humane method of deterring birds from perching or roosting on roofs, ledges, windowsills, etc. ...with all the associated noise and unsightly bird droppings (which can also quickly become a health hazard). Which are the right type of bird spikes for you? Well the first consideration, is what type of bird are you trying to deter? Pigeon spikes will probably not deter an aggressive seagull population, while seagull spikes are effective against gulls or pigeons. What's the difference between pigeon deterrent spikes and seagull spikes? Pigeon spikes are manufactured entirely from robust, weatherproof, clear polycarbonate, and feature 112mm long spikes. Gull spikes feature the same robust polycarbonate base, but the spikes are longer (150mm long) and are manufactured from high tensile stainless steel (aggressive gulls have been known to bite plastic spikes off with their razor sharp beaks).
What fixing options are available? Fixing to parapets, ledges, windowsills, etc; the normal method of fixing, is to bond the bird spikes in place with a recommended adhesive. Insight Security recommend Silirub 2S adhesive a clear silicon adhesive which is temperature resistant to temperatures as low as minus - 60 C or as high as +180 C, and is suitable for interior or exterior use. Fixing to opening windows; where you have a side hung opening window, it will not be possible to fix the bird spikes to the windowsill if the spikes would prevent the opening of the window, in this case, window clips provide a simple solution. Fixing to rain gutters; rain gutters are a great place for a bird to nestle in, where they are sheltered from the elements. Fixing bird spikes to the guttering is therefore likely to be a priority, however gutters need to be cleared of collected leaves and other debris from time to time, so Insights solution is to offer gutter clips, which allow the spikes to be easily removed and re-attached, to allow gutter cleaning. Fixing to pipework; vertical drainpipes are obviously not an issue, however angled lateral pipework often provides a pleasant resting place for birds. Bonding the flat base of the bird spikes to a curved surface is likely to be difficult, so the use of nylon cable ties is the usual method used to attach them. How much do the spikes cost? Obviously the overall length of the protective bird spike run will determine 'how many spikes you need'. Insight offer spikes for sale individually, or in various multisaver packs, so you only need to buy what you need, and if you visit the Insight on-line shop, you'll be able to take advantage of their aggressive pricing.
