Wires provide a means of deterrence that is not only highly effective and affordable, but also inconspicuous. Because birds can only roost when they have a flat surface or a firm grip, they are unable to perch on thin, elastic stainless steel wires. This is effective solution for all types of residential and commercial properties.
How it works?
The height of wire systems is set at 110 mm, the ideal height for deterring pigeons and other birds of similar size. However, this height can be adjusted for any species of concern.
Wire systems consist of one or more thin (0.54mm) stainless steel wires attached by springs to steel pins, which are in turn secured to a base. An additional wire set at a lower height prevents birds from flying underneath the system.
The wires are set taught enough that birds cannot fit between them, but not so tight that they can perch on top of them. When the only two options are becoming entangled or being unable to balance, birds have no choice but to land elsewhere.
Where to install?
Changing the number of wires allows the system to cover various widths of potential perches, ranging from pipes, window ledges, roof ledges, exterior walls, railings, beams, gutters and handrails to broad eaves.
Wire systems are suitable for medium to heavy populations of birds.
