Professional Bird Spikes Installation In Maidstone

If you have noticed birds roosting on your property, it is crucial to implement effective pest control solutions. Birds such as pigeons, seagulls and starlings can nest on your roof or balcony and cause severe structural damage to your home or business.

Moreover, these pests create a hazardous environment as their droppings are very slippery and carry airborne pathogens and diseases which are dangerous to humans. This danger can affect your family’s well-being or damage your business’s reputation. Therefore, the installation of bird spikes will act as a deterrent and encourage birds to nest elsewhere.

What Are Bird Spikes?

Bird spikes or pigeon spikes are an innovative control method which deters birds from roosting on your property. They are manufactured using blunt steel spikes connected to a polycarbonate base, and these can be installed on almost any surface. This crisscross spike design creates an impenetrable barrier for larger birds, and this is a highly effective preventative measure. Furthermore, this barrier is designed specifically to block birds from reaching their favourite nesting spots, and it is a humane and cost-effective solution to bird pest control.

Most commonly, these spikes are installed on commercial properties; however, they are becoming increasingly popular for domestic and residential homes due to their versatility. Some of the most common locations for our bird spike installation services include;

Commercial Signs
Car Parks
Shop Fronts
Window Ledges

What Are The Benefits Of Bird Spikes? 

Domestic and commercial bird spikes will protect your property from guano, damage and diseases. Under the Wildlife and Countryside Act (1981), birds, nests and their eggs are protected and cannot be harmed. Therefore, installing these bird spikes on your property will act as a humane preventative measure to minimise your risk of a bird infestation. Moreover, some other benefits of bird spikes include the following; 


Bird spikes are incredibly tough and resistant to the weather; therefore, this bird control solution is a long-lasting deterrent method. Furthermore, if they are maintained correctly, the typical lifespan of steel bird spikes is between 15-20 years. 


In addition to their long lifespan, bird spikes are also highly effective. Your investment into successful bird pest control will ensure bird droppings and property damage is minimised. As a result, this will save you time and money in maintaining your property and provide you and your family with a safe place to live.  


Bird spikes can be anchored to your property with industry mastic. As a result, this makes it the perfect option for listed buildings or historic properties, as you do not need to drill into the stonework to secure it. In addition, this stronghold mastic can help fix bird spikes to even the smallest of places, such as window sills, ledges and pipes, which would otherwise be difficult to connect to.

Frequently Asked Questions 

Should I use bird spikes for solar panels?

Solar panel bird spikes are an effective control solution; however, bird mesh may be the better option depending on your specific requirements. Bird mesh can be fitted around the parameter of your solar panels to stop both larger and smaller birds from nesting underneath. Our initial home survey will help identify the best pest control solution for your solar panels

How much is bird spike installation?

At Pest-Tech, we will conduct a free site survey before quoting, as it all depends on the size of your property, the extent of the problem and desired location of the bird spikes. During this survey, we will provide a bespoke treatment plan to successfully control and deter birds from nesting on your property. 

Do bird spikes work for small birds? 

Unfortunately, no. Bird spikes are versatile and can be applied to medium-large birds. Although this will act as a deterrent for smaller birds, there is still the possibility of small birds perching between the spikes. This confirms the importance of our home surveys as it ensures we can implement the most effective treatment to solve your pest issues.
