The Original Plastic Bird Spike

The first "no-assembly" plastic bird spike which made installations a breeze!

Bird B Gone, the leader in bird control products for commercial, industrial and residential applications has announced the 15-year anniversary of one of the most effective and humane bird deterrents ever devised—the original Polycarbonate Bird Spike.

The revolutionary bird deterrent marked the first ready-to-use bird spike that required no assembly. The spiked strip came in a rigid two-foot section and seven standard colors to match the installed venue. The new bird spikes were enthusiastically received by property owners and managers who were frustrated by pest bird problems. Bird B Gone’s Scott Swanson remembers when the plastic spike was first shipped out. “Customers loved it, for it was easy to use, rigid, required no assembly and it worked,“ noted Swanson.

Currently available in a variety of sizes and colors, Bird B Gone Plastic Bird Spikes have the largest number of patents of any plastic bird spike. More economical than steel spikes, the anti-perching, anti-roosting bird deterrent won’t allow larger birds to land on or near them. The spikes are blunted at the tips so they won’t harm birds, curious pets or installers, and they have been approved by a number of humane groups—including the U.S. Humane Society.

Perching birds have long presented a problem for property owners who must deal with bird droppings and debris. If allowed to gather, bird droppings can deface and often permanently mar surfaces. The acid in bird droppings can eat into paint, fabric, plastic, metal and even stonework. Bird droppings can also carry any of 60 known diseases, including salmonella. Bird nesting debris has been known to ignite electrical fires, block vents, and prevent AC units from functioning properly.

Polycarbonate bird spikes offer property owners an effective means of bird control. They are an ideal bird deterrent for use on ledges, roof lines, parapet walls, eaves, I-beams, windowsills, signs, light posts, awnings and canopies. The spiked strips come in two-foot sections and three different widths—3-, 5- and 7-inch—to match the surface being treated. The base of the spiked strip is just 1.5 inches wide, which allows for easy installation on narrow surfaces. A built-in glue tough and pre-drilled mounting holes allow for easy installation using commercially available glues, screws or tie downs.

Another key feature of these durable bird spikes is their flexible base, which allows the spiked strip to “follow” curved surfaces, such as lampposts and signage. The spikes are also available in a variety of colors—including crystal clear, brick red, light grey, brown, black and tan—so they’ll blend in more readily with their surroundings.

The rugged polycarbonate bird spikes are GSA approved and made of unbreakable UV-protected polycarbonate plastic to last for season after season outdoors. The spikes are non-conductive and will not interfere with electrical or communication and transmission equipment. Each is manufactured in the USA and comes with a 5-year guarantee.

Bird B Gone is the world’s largest manufacturer and distributor of bird control products, providing effective and humane solutions to a bird-free environment. The company provides advice, training and installation services for those who need help with these and other bird control measures.
