Bird Wire, Spikes & Netting
Bird wire, spikes and netting are the three most effective methods for ridding nuisance birds from your property. A single method could be used, or we may need to combine two or three different applications. Electric bird deterrents and repellents may also be used as further preventative measures if needed. Our team will assess the extent of your situation and apply the ideal solution for the most effective results.
Bird wire is commonly used on flat surfaces to stop birds from perching and roosting. This is achieved by attaching nylon wire to stainless steel posts and tensioning them with springs. The wire is positioned at different heights and intervals which creates an unstable landing area that birds tend to avoid. Bird wire can be installed on almost any linear surface, and therefore can be used to protect building fascias, flat roofs, balconies or anywhere else that birds might roost.
Bird spikes work similarly to bird wire, but spikes are used instead on uneven layers of wire to deter birds from roosting. Bird spikes can also be used on almost any linear surface. Bird spikes aren’t as low-key as bird wire, however.
Bird netting works simply as a barrier to prevent birds from roosting in a certain area. The nets can vary in size depending on their positioning and are typically assembled on rooftops. Bird netting works effectively against pigeons and seagulls.
