Clearing the Site

Before installing the Texas bird spikes, the area where you are planning to install the bird spike should be cleared first. Be extra careful in doing this. You should wear face mask and gloves since their droppings can carry fungal spores that will transmit deadly diseases. Use a cleaning solution that is powerful enough to disintegrate organic matters.  The droppings, feathers, and nesting materials should be placed inside the garbage bag. Seal this properly and avoid releasing the trapped air inside.

Installing the Bird Spikes

After cleaning the site, you are now ready to install the Texas bird spike. Apply the silicone-based glue that is provided along with the bird spike. Make sure to generously spread it on the place where you will introduce the bird needle. It should be at least as thick as your pinky finger. The bottom part of the bird spike should then be attached on the edge of the roof, ledge, or pipe.  Press the device firmly until the glue will gush out of the holes. Incases there is a considerable gap, consider attaching another set of bird spike on the ledge.

The Allen bird spikes would be effective in preventing the pigeons from landing on our ledges. However, if there is a considerable space at the back of the spikes, they will be very persistent in accessing that space. You should be committed in blocking all the possible access of the bird to their favorite roosting place.
