Spikes keep birds away

Bird-X Inc. has released Stainless Steel Spikes Needle Strips to deter birds from roosting on roofs, ledges and gutters. The 4 1/2-inch-long spikes are made of stainless steel and have an ultraviolet-inhibited polycarbonate base.

The base can be installed on regular and irregular surfaces by a variety of attachment methods, and each spike module is 2 feet long. Stabilizers in the base are said to keep the strips balanced during installation.
