Why Bird Spikes are Much more Effective for Bird Control

By Chris Subscribe to RSS | June 8th 2012 | Views:

Birds, as nice as they are normally, can be quite annoying in some circumstances – to the extent where they become an actual problem. Just ask anyone who's had to run a business involving hanging signs – it's not rare for birds to "do their business" on those signs, and some even enjoy taking semi-permanent residence on top of them as well. Same goes for posts, fences, wall-mounted clocks and generally any larger object placed outdoors that's a suitable place for a bird to land.

Thankfully, there are some convenient solutions available nowadays to solve that issue – the most prominent one being bird spikes. This is a simple, yet very effective device involving spikes protruding from the top of the object you'd like to secure, preventing any birds from landing on that object and making it an unwelcome place for them in general. The spikes are usually installed in a way that does not affect the aesthetics of the object they're used on, or if they do, they do it in a minimal way that doesn't cause any harm to your business.

You may be thinking, "hey, birds may be annoying but I don't want to go as far as killing/harming them!" – well that's the beauty of the whole thing, as bird spikes, when done right, are completely harmless to the birds! The thing is, birds aren't stupid and are perfectly capable of seeing the spikes before they land – which means that they won't attempt that in the first place. Birds spikes also usually point straight up, so there's no risk of harming a bird that accidentally flies into them from the side.

Just keep in mind that this is all valid as long as you're working with a good company for your bird spikes – the quality companies on the market for this product understand these concerns and are developing their products with the safety of birds in mind. Talk to the company before buying anything from them, ask them if their spikes are humane – good companies would have no trouble answering you in detail how their spikes pose no danger to the birds that are pestering you every day.

Last but not least, some people are usually concerned about the maintenance aspect of bird spikes before installing them – and you're likely wondering about that too. Just how much work do these devices require in general? The answer is, not much at all. You'll only have to clean them lightly every few weeks or so, as quality bird spikes are made of durable, rugged materials that don't wear out easily – meaning that no amount of rain, wind and other natural forces would easily cause damage to those spikes, and it's going to take a long time before you notice any effects of prolonged use on the spikes. Even then they're trivial to replace and most companies would do this for you at a reduced rate, allowing you to easily enjoy your bird-free operations for a long time without having to worry about the spikes themselves.
