When seeking a solution to pest birds a humane approach should always be the first port of call.
Culling birds is always seen as the last option when all other alternatives have been exhausted and there is a real threat to health.
So how exactly do humane bird control methods work? The basic idea is that bird control solutions make an area inhospitable to birds so that they no longer return there to roost.
Deterring pest birds from nesting
Spikes are particularly effective in doing this. Importantly they are also fairly unobtrusive and can be adapted to a many different aspects of a building.
When you consider the parts of a building that birds might choose to make their homes, accessibility is important for the chosen bird control solution.
Aerials, chimneys, underneath gutters, window sills, rooftop corners and crevices are all prime targets for birds looking for a place to make their home.
Small enough to be used in these areas but prominent enough to deter birds, spikes are an essential piece of kit in deterring birds from nesting.
The metal spikes are attached to a plastic base and are either glued or screwed into place.
They work by making it difficult for birds to land in a particular area thereby deterring them from making their nest – or returning to a former roosting site.
Importantly, the spikes do not harm the birds and as such are seen as a highly efficient form of bird control.
By being a permanent solution, spikes not only deal with a present bird control problem but will act as a deterrent in future to prevent more birds from attempting to make their home at the property.
While dealing with pest birds is important to protecting your property and the health of the people who live or work there, so is doing this in the most humane way possible.
Spikes are an effective way to deal with pest birds without causing unnecessary harm. They get the humane seal of approval.
