It doesnít take long for birds to gather in huge numbers
and become destructive pests.
sparrows, starlings, and gulls can drop an awful lot of
poop and create quite a lot of noise.
After theyíve decided that yours is a nice, safe place
to nest, itís almost impossible to get them to leave on
their own. Luckily, some clever people have studied and
analyzed how birds land, and they now offer a way to
prevent them from doing just that. What theyíve come up
with is the
a simple device that
prevents birds from landing.
The goal here is to convince them to move on, not harm
them. For if allowed to gather and nest, pest birds can
pose a serious health problem. Itís common knowledge
that birds can carry a wide range of some very serious
diseases. These include a potentially fatal lung disease
called histoplasmosis; a lower or upper respiratory
disease called ornithosis; and pseudotuberculosism,
resulting in abdominal pain and feveróup to 60 diseases
in all, including salmonella.
In fact, birds have even been known to carry the lethal
West Nile Virus by way of the fleas and mites they
carry. Itís no wonder the Bird Proof Spike has become so
are the ideal solution for
keeping birds from landing
and roosting on column tops, ledges, parapets, signs,
beams, chimneys, cutouts, security cameras, lights, and
more. The spikes on these devices are blunted, which
makes them safe for birds and maintenance/installation
The bird proof spike is effective because birds simply
canít maneuver their wings or feet to land on the
menacing looking angled spikes. These spikes are so well
regarded that they have earned the recommendation of
building contractors, architects, and municipalities.
