We all love watching and looking at the beautiful birds that South Africa has to offer. What we do not love is the mess these beauties bring. Bird spikes are a simple and effective permanent bird control solution for any problem our feathered friends cause.Bird spikes are an extremely cost-effective deterrent.

Spike & Raise has installed hundreds of meters of bird spikes,also known as pigeon spikes,throughout Cape Town and surrounding areas, making us one of the leading spike installers.

Plastic bird spikes are made from a durable plastic known as polycarbonate, which is non-corrosive, therefore withstanding various weather conditions without rusting or wearing over time. They are also UV resistant. Pigeon spikesare an environmentally friendly long-term solution to deter unwanted pigeons or animals.

Bird spikes,or pigeon spikes as some may know them, prevent bird nests and feathers from clogging rain gutters, which lead to roof leaks & prevent birds from soiling, defacing & damaging various surfaces such as walls & roofs.

Bird droppings carry diseases and can render surfaces unsanitary, which can cause illness among adults and children. Plastic bird spikes can prevent the spread of these diseases when installed.

A strip of bird spike has a flexible base which allows it to conform to both flat or arched areas, and is approximately 100mm in length. Bird deterrent spikes can virtually be mounted onto any surface by means of a fastener or a type of adhesive such as no nails.
