If budget is an issue, can we recommend that you look at our wide PLASTIC spikes?
These are just as efficient as the steel in preventing birds nesting and come with a confidence-inspiring 15-year warranty.
So why use steel? They have a thinner, less noticeable profile, and have an even longer 25-year no-rust 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® 8 Wide Stainless Steel Bird Prevention Spikes will get rid of birds from ledges, nesting and roosting sites with a depth of up to 20 cm (8 inches).

If the ledge or roosting site is smaller than 20 cm you may want to consider using our Defender® 4 Narrow Bird Spikes which is able to protect a ledge of up to 10 cm (4 inches).

Strip Length

The Defender® 8 Narrow Stainless Steel Bird Prevention Spike is 33.4 cm or 13 inches long. To cover a 1 metre length ledge or roosting site you will need 3 strips. The angled stainless steel pins protruding from the polycarbonate plastic base will prevent birds and pigeons from attempting to land on any ledge or roosting site

Snappable Sections

Along the underside of the base of  Defender® Spikes are 4 grooves, which can be snapped by hand to create 5 shorter lengths, each measuring 6.5 cm and each having the correct angled span of pin protection. This means smaller ledges and uneven surfaces can be securely protected from persistent birds.

Humane Treatment of Birds

All Defender™ Bird Prevention Spike products have been approved by the RSPB as the most humane way of preventing birds from being able to land without injury or harm. The stainless steel pins stop the birds from being able to land, roost or nest. As the spikes make it uncomfortable for birds, they move on safely, without injury, to a new nesting site.


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.
