How To Get Rid Of Birds

Bird Spikes are a versatile range of precision engineered bird deterrents designed to provide effective and humane control of birds. The upward-pointing wires or ‘spikes’ act as a physical barrier to birds without hurting them. The clever design solves virtually every situation where bird spikes are suitable. This reduces the need to carry several stock lines.

Pestrol Bird Spikes can protect buildings against pigeons in a wide variety of situations. These include daytime perching to night roosting sites and from the narrowest pipes to the widest building ledges.

Stainless steel Pestrol Bird Spikes have the longest life expectancy. The use of high tensile strength stainless steel means birds cannot easily push them out of the way or bend them out of shape. UV-protection of polycarbonate bases further protects against cracking or breaking through prolonged sunlight exposure. And cleaning-off and priming surfaces with key-in adhesives and employing adhesives that provide a strong bond regardless of conditions are also critical.

Pestrol Bird Spikes Per Metre are far less visible than plastic ones because they do not reflect sunlight and attract far less dirt. They continue to remain tidy and unobtrusive for an extended period. Low profile bases should be specified to reduce visibility from the ground, with translucent plastic blending well into most building surfaces.

Installation guide

  1. Ensure all areas are clean, dry and free of bird droppings. Remember to look up since the source of the mess might be from ledges or pipes higher up on the building. It is necessary for you to install Pestrol Bird Spikes to prevent droppings, twigs etc. from falling onto the bird spikes.

  2. Install the Pestrol Bird Spikes with screws or apply pigeon spike fixing silicone such as AVISIL Bird Spike Adhesive (10mm) on the spike base. We recommend about 1 tube per 15 metres of spikes.

  3.  Stick the first row of Pestrol Bird Spikes towards the front of the ledge and press down firmly. For very wide ledges 3 or more rows of pigeon spikes may be needed but it is important to leave no more than 2 inches (5cm) between rows.

  4.  Pestrol Bird Spikes can be easily snapped using your fingers. Snap spikes into pieces to finish off rows for small areas.

  5.  If there is a hole in the eaves or a cavity in the exterior wall behind the Pestrol Bird Spikes, please block the access to this hole or space with wire mesh or expanding foam. Prior to blocking the hole, make ensure that pigeons have not been trapped in the recess or any pigeon squabs or dependent birds found.

  6. Pigeons will overcome any Pestrol Bird Spikes on lower parts by standing on the raised section, therefore, please make sure that the base of the Pestrol Bird Spikes is fixed directly onto the top of any parts of the ledge that may be raised slightly higher than the rest of the ledge.

  7. Warn window cleaners, contractors on ladders, scaffolders, painters etc. to be careful whilst working since a slightly damaged Pestrol Bird Spike is likely to provide an ideal roosting or nesting spot for a pigeon. If any damage is generated, the Easy Pest Bird Spikes should be replaced to prevent the pigeons from moving back in.

Using AVISIL Adhesive

  • AVISIL Adhesive is recommended for use where the surface is dry.

  • AVIFIX “High Tack” adhesive can be used where the surface is damp.

  •  Pestrol Bird Spikes have a unique Glue Guide on the underside of the base to allow quick and easy application of AVISIL Adhesive.

  • To open AVISIL Adhesive, use the Adhesive Cutter Tool. Cut the cap of the tube by rotating the tool around the cap of the tube.

  • Cut the nozzle along the second of the three guidelines (10mm from the tip)

  • Apply a 5mm band of AVISIL Adhesive in the Glue Guide of the Pestrol Bird Spike

  • Press the Pestrol Bird Spike strip firmly into place.

  • 1 tube per 15 metres of spikes.

Attaching – Pipes

  • Pestrol Bird Spikes can be attached to a pipe using AVISIL Adhesive, rail clamps and cable ties

Attaching – Curved Surface

  • On a curved surface, such as signs, snap the Pestrol Bird Spike strip into sections before glueing with AVISIL Adhesive.

Attaching – TV Aerial

  • Pestrol Bird Spikes can be attached to an aerial using cable ties. AVISIL Adhesive may also be used
