What are Bird Spikes?
Contego Bird Spikes are one of the most effective, robust systems available, designed for areas of heavy infestation. Bird Spikes are an adaptable and easily installed method of preventing perching and roosting birds from landing on almost any surface making this control measure a successful, cost-effective way of deterring birds. Contego Bird Spikes are available from a single row for narrow ledges up to wider multi rows that are more effective for heavy pressure sites and where a deeper protection is required.
How do Bird Spikes work?
Specifically designed for areas of heavy infestation, the angled wires increase the effectiveness of the Contego Bird Spike, making it difficult for pigeons to land and so moving them somewhere else without harming them.
Bird Spikes are normally bonded to the surface material using a strong neutral silicone adhesive to avoid the need to infiltrate the surface. This is of particular use when the surface component cannot be drilled as with leaded surfaces, parapet capping and plastic signs.

Do bird spikes hurt or injure the birds?
No, they act as a visual and physical barrier so the birds can’t perch on your building. Birds spikes are actually recommended by the RSPB as a humane way of bird proofing buildings.
Do bird spikes require any maintenance?
No, they don’t need any maintenance. Once they are installed, they are a long-term, cost-effective hassle- free bird control solution.
Will bird spikes repel the species of bird I’m having a problem with?
We’ll recommend and install the right spikes for the job, so if you’re having a problem with smaller birds like starlings, spikes that are closer together will mean that they can’t land between the rows.
If your problem is with larger birds like pigeons, longer, higher spikes will prevent them from perching on your building.
