Birds are colourful, chirpy and adorable pets but the ones that are not can create quite a mess if they want to. Birds like pigeons, in particular, have the habit of perching and making nests in any kind of nook and cranny of a place bet your ac tops, balcony corners, building rooftops or plants, and bushes. Bird spikes are merely a variety of bird protection nets; harmless and effective way of prohibiting that. By not allowing the birds to perch or make the home on open areas you prevent bird droppings and keep them from nesting. Pigeon excreta, in particular, is said to have acidic properties. They spread germs and diseases.
Fundamental Properties Of Bird Spikes
Pigeon spikes or spikes for any kind of birds create an uncomfortable landing ground for the birds with the spike’s unevenness and rough edges. The birds are therefore unable to settle on them and fly away. Contrary to how dangerous the name may appear, these spikes are actually harmless for the birds and in no way hurt or kill them. Most spikes are made of High-Density Polyethylene or Linear low-density polyethylene. In layman’s terms they are made of plastic thus they are quite harmful yet durable and strong enough to keep them away. They are also biodegradable resistant to UV and do not rust after prolonged environment exposure. Bird spikes are also made of stainless steel which is equally effective and as harmless as the plastic ones. Stainless steel spikes will not be affected even in heated climates; their melting point is 1300C. They remain unaffected up to 1000C. They can’t be fixed using screws and nails. The translucent texture of the plastic also makes it harder to spot and doesn’t ruin the look of the surroundings.
