Birds might be majestic creatures when soaring through the skies, but when they land and start roosting on roofs, they can quickly cause damage and disturbance to homeowners and business leaders.
Whether it’s noise from their cawing or dirt from their guano (droppings), birds are a nuisance that can be difficult to deal with.
Bird guano is incredibly corrosive and can be a health hazard for passers-by. Birds can also dislodge TV aerials, cause damage to roof surfaces and dislodge debris from ledges into gutters.
While pigeons and seagulls are thought to be the most common pest birds, others, such as starlings, blackbirds and crows, can also cause problems, especially if they start nesting on your roof.
There are a range of bird proofing solutions on the market, and one of the most effective is bird spikes.
How Bird And Pigeon Spikes Work
Bird spikes consist of a strip of stainless steel spikes that can protect the surface of your roof from uninvited avian guests.
The spikes are pointed at the end to make it uncomfortable for birds to land near or on them, meaning pigeons, gulls, and other birds will look elsewhere for somewhere to roost.
As bird spikes are humane and easy to use, they’re the preferred method of bird control for many businesses and homeowners.
They don’t require regular maintenance, and once they’re installed, they can last up to a decade or even longer, depending on the adhesive used and the quality of the spikes.
Flytech’s bird spikes are non-intrusive and high-quality, so they will last for many years. Our team can adjust the length of the strip of spikes to offer protection for a range of surfaces and properties, including flat roofs, solar panels, chimneys, sheds, garages, gutters, large commercial buildings and more.
