Bird spikes can prevent birds from landing or nesting on specific surfaces, but their effectiveness on small birds may vary depending on the type of bird and the bird spike product used. Some small birds may still be able to land on bird spikes by using their feet or bills to hook onto the wire mesh. In addition, bird spikes may not be suitable for certain types of small birds that need to land on ledges or small spaces to nest or rest.
Remember what we said earlier, roosting and nesting birds require different solutions. So, check if you have nesting birds or if they are simply perching on unwanted ledges. This will save you time and money!
