Strip Length 

Each strip of Defender® Thistle® is 333 mm (13 inches) long. 3 strips are needed to protect a one  metre length of ledge. One metre of Defender® Thistle® will have an incredible 240 pins set in 8  different angles, therefore stopping the most determined small bird from landing on any surface on  which the Thistle® has been installed. 

Humane Treatment of Birds 

Although the Defender® Thistle® may look aggressive, it is a humane bird control solution  and does not hurt the birds at all. The fan of pins act initially as a visual deterrent to birds  wanting to land and most will move on to more accessible areas. If they are more  determined the dense pattern of the pins means getting close will be uncomfortable for the  bird and indeed make it impossible to get a foot hold onto the ledge.
