The Defender® Bird Spikes Team

David Jones - Founder & Director of Defender Bird Spikes

David Jones

Founder & Director

Dave co-founded Jones & Son Pest Control Supplies Ltd with his wife, Kursty in 1997. Using his extensive knowledge of pest control, he spotted a gap in the market for British manufactured quality bird control products and Defender® Bird Spikes was born. Dave invents, innovates and patents all the Defender® range.

Dave loves a learning curve and thinks he is probably the best Welsh disco dancer in Devon.
