The Defender™ Ridge Spike is a specifically designed bird deterrent for use on the ridge tiles at the top of roofs. Birds such as pigeons and seagulls love to perch on the highest point available to view the best feeding sites and be aware of any potential predators. This makes the ridge tiles of a home the perfect perch.
The base of the roof spike has been shaped into an upside down "V" to fit snugly over the top of triangular ridge tiles. The roof spikes have extra long pins that stop not only birds such as pigeons, but also larger birds like seagulls from landing on roofs. They therefore prevent the birds from fouling and roosting on your home and business.
All our stainless steel bird deterrents are made by us, Jones and Son Pest Control Supplies in Devon. Please do pop into our warehouse to chat with our friendly advisers and see how our spikes are individually made.
Defender™ Roof Ridge Bird Spikes - Key Features:
Defender™ Ridge Spikes have 2 rows of stainless steel pins that fan out to give a ledge protection of 27.5 cm or 11 inches. With this angle of pins, the bird and seagull ridge deterrent will stop birds landing on roofs.
The length of each Defender™ Roof Spike is 33.4 cm long (13 inches). To cover a 1 metre long section of ridge tiles, 3 strips would be necessary. The average terraced house has a roof length of 5 metres. Therefore 15 ridge tiles would be ample to stop birds from landing on the roof.
All Defender™ Stainless Steel Bird Control Products are humane and recommended by the RSPB. The ridge spike pins make landing uncomfortable for seagulls and other birds, without injuring them, which means they move on to other more accessible areas. The pins themselves are extra long so cater not only for pigeons and other similar sized birds, but also for the seagull with longer legs.
Two Rows of Pins
The Defender™ Stainless Steel Ridge Spike has 2 rows of 15 cm (6 inch) long 304 grade stainless steel pins. They protrude from the UV stabilised polycarbonate base of the spike at 2 different angles. This spread of pins acts as a bird deterrent and stops seagulls and birds from landing on the apex of the roof.
Specially Designed Easy Fix Roof Ridge Base
The Defender™ Ridge Spike has a triangler base that will give a secure fit onto any apex roofing ridge tile. Simply glue the base of the ridge spike with Defender™ Fixing Silicone, ensuring both faces of the underside are covered, and press firmly down onto the roofing tile.
The angled base of the roof ridge spike means the bird spike can achieve a good grip with no slippage. However, if your ridge tiles have a curved shape, there is no need to purchase the specially shaped ridge tile spike, but the standard Defender™ 12 Bird Spikes can be used instead. Simply glue directly onto the top of the ridge tile. Click here to view Defender ™ Ridge Spikes - Installation Guide

This, in conjuction with the 304 grade stainless steel pins, ensures that this high quality seagull roof ridge spike will last for years. For this reason it comes with a 25-Year “No Rust” Warranty.

Defender™ Roof Ridge Bird Spikes Installation
Although the installation of our Defender™ Roof Spikes is easy (it really is a case of just applying fixing silicone to the base and pressing down into position) the nature of the product means that access can be difficult. If you are at all worried about using ladders or gaining access to high areas around the home, we would really recommend talking to a professional pest controller or property maintenance company.
