How do plastic spikes compare with stainless steel spikes?
They BOTH  work just as efficiently in preventing birds nesting.
The only difference is in appearance (and price!)  – some people prefer the slimmer profile of the steel.
HOWEVER the plastic spikes are UV treated so they don’t go brittle in the sun, AND come with a confidence-inspiring 15-year warranty

If you will be using an adhesive to fix these spikes, we recommend our Defender Adhesive which has been specifically designed for use with this product

Ledge Protection

Defender® 4 Narrow Plastic Bird and Pigeon Spikes will protect a depth of ledge up to 10 cm (4 inches). If the ledge width is 10 cm or more, simply attach a second row of spikes leaving a small a gap as possible between the tops of the pins.

Alternatively, you may prefer to use one row of our Wide Pigeon Prevention Spike that will protect ledges up to 20 cm (8 inches) Defender® 8 Plastic Bird and Pigeon Spikes.

Strip Length

The Defender® 4 Pigeon Prevention Spike is 33.4 cm (13 inches) in length. To cover a 1 metre long ledge or sill, 3 strips of Plastic Pigeon Spikes are needed. However the plastic spike bases can be snapped to shorter lengths from just 3 cm (1 inch) long.

Humane Pigeon Plastic Spikes

All the Defender® Bird and Pigeon Spikes are humane. The pins that protrude at angles from the base simply act as a barrier to the pigeon, making it difficult for birds or pigeons to approach the ledge they previously used to perch on. The plastic pigeon spike pins do not injure the birds as they do not come into contact with them. They just move on to other more accessible roosting or nesting sites.

Special Note

Special note:

  • These spikes are for protection against pigeons and similar size birds.
  • DO NOT use these if you have problems with smaller birds such as sparrows, starlings etc. Use our Defender Thistle or similar product.
