The bird spike can be plastic spikes as well as stainless steel spikes. Most bird spikes do not harm birds in any way, they only prevent them from landing in areas where they can become harmful to people or property. These spikes are available in different shapes and sizes. The size and shape of the spike is dependent on what type of bird you’re trying to diversion. Bird spikes are made in one-foot or two-foot lengths, with different widths.  The widths of the spikes are usually 3″, 5″ and 8″.  The width of the bird spike used is determined by the area to be covered.

The best bird spikes have a flexible base.  This means they will easily conform to curved areas, an ideal feature for many outdoor signs and other hard-to-cover areas. The surface should be dry and free of bird droppings and other nesting debris. When using glue to install the bird spikes, apply the glue generously onto the base of the spike (about 1/2-inch thick). For uneven surfaces, you’ll need to apply more glue to ensure a firm seal. Be sure to press the base of the spike level with the edge of the surface. And remember to allow some overhang of the spike pins.
Birds are clever and will find a way to sneak around the spikes. For really wide ledges, use three or more rows of spikes and make sure to limit the gap between rows to two inches or less. Pest birds will find the cavity behind a spike strip and sneak in, so be aware of this and install the spikes carefully.
