Bird Spiking

Birds roosting around your premises can cause problems for homes & businesses. Pigeons, especially, congregate in large numbers once they find an area they like. They can be noisy, messy, disruptive and unhygienic, putting off customers and staff alike. There is also the potential of damage to your property from detritus and fouling generated by them and subsequent costs of cleaning and repair.

 

One of the simplest ways to deter birds permanently is by using a spike system. These are harmless and move birds on from favoured roosting sites so your business can carry on undisturbed. However they should only be used where 'roosting' and 'resting' occurs, not where nesting is taking place. M.E.S bird spike system can be used to deter against roosting gulls as well as Feral Pigeons. However the system is not suitable for bird species smaller than the size of Pigeons.

 

Our avian experts can install bird spiking for an immediate and discreet solution to deter pest birds. All bird spiking systems come with a full three-year guarantee. Call us on 0800 107 8741 to discuss with our bird experts.

Reasons To Use Bird Spikes

​In certain instances, spiking is the only available option. however, there are many advantages of using bird spikes as opposed to alternative deterrents:

  • Versatile - Protect all areas, such as ledges, sills, chimneys and gutters, from pigeons or gulls attempting to roost or nest.

  • Gentle - Spring loaded blunt needles gently tip birds off balance as they try to settle, encouraging them to settle elsewhere.

  • Long-lasting - The sturdy polycarbonate base of the Bird Point system is unaffected by the elements, so you can fit them and forget them. They are made from BS316 Marine Grade Stainless Steel - which does not rust.

  • Three-year guarantee - Like all our bird-proofing treatments, our spiking system comes with a guarantee. They’re installed by dedicated, expert highly trained technicians who take great pride in the high standard of their work.


The best way to discourage birds for good is to remove their food sources, however in busy urban areas this is not always a practical solution. If birds are causing a nuisance at your premises there are a number of solutions that. Birds can become particularly troublesome in the colder months, when they look for shelter out of the elements. Ensure that your roof is in good order to help deny access.

“  We had Pigeons perching on our roof and fouling down the side of our house. M.E.S came out and gave us a competitive quote. Booked the work in for a couple of days later and the two lads did a fantastic job. Very polite and courteous and did a smashing job. Great work. Would use again but don't think i'll have to! ”
