Taking A Proactive Approach To Bird Control
Despite the dangers associated with birds and bird droppings, many property owners are unsure how to target the problem effectively. Often, they invest in reactive measures which deal with the consequences of unwanted birds and the mess they create. While these reactive measures can be effective in preventing the spread of disease, preventative measures may be more cost-effective.
By preventing birds from nesting or perching on specific areas, property managers can ensure their buildings are protected from the damage birds can cause. Furthermore, the health risks associated with birds can be minimised.
Installing Bird Spike Systems
Used to protect buildings, roofs and window ledges, bird spike systems are an extremely effective form of bird control. Once installed, they prevent birds from landing or roosting and, therefore, limit the damage they can cause.
Although bird spike systems are available in various materials, the Apex anti-bird spikes consist of a polycarbonate base and stainless steel spikes. While the spikes provide low to medium pressure if a bird does try to land, they do not cause any harm or inflict any injuries. Instead, they simply frustrate the birds, prevent them from nesting in the area and encourage them to move on.
Due to the high quality materials used in our bird spike system, they are corrosion resistant and can remain in place for a considerable length of time. In addition to this, the stainless steel spikes are rust proof which ensures they remain effective and aesthetically pleasing.
Cost-Effective Bird Control
Bird spike systems are one of the most cost-effective forms of bird control and are routinely used by businesses and homeowners across the United Kingdom. The base of the spikes can be easily installed with high-grade adhesive, so there are no complicated installation procedures to contend with. Furthermore, existing windowsills, ledges, gutters and roofs do not need to be modified in order for bird spike systems to be installed.
Following installation, bird spikes need little to no maintenance. As a passive method of bird control, their presence is enough to deter birds from landing in the area.
Prevent Nesting And Roosting
Once birds have created a nest, it can be difficult to move them on. Often, birds will attempt to return to the area repeatedly and more intensive methods of bird control may need to be used. By installing bird spike systems, property owners can prevent this from happening.
Rather than reacting to an existing nest, property managers can anticipate the bird’s behaviour and discourage them from nesting in a particular area. By using bird spike systems to prevent nesting, homeowners and commercial building managers can avoid the need for additional bird control in the future.
