Defender® Seagull Spikes

Seagulls are incredibly persistent, loud and strong. To stop gulls from landing, roosting or perching on your property, you need Defender® Seagull Spikes. These seagull control spikes have much longer pins than our other bird spikes. This makes them suitable to protect ledges and roofs from bigger birds like seagulls. The longer pins of this humane seagull spike push into the gull's breast, making it uncomfortable to nest or roost and moving the birds onto an easier roosting site. These high-quality Defender® Gull Deterrent Spikes are manufactured in the UK and come with a 25-Year "No Rust" Warranty. Also available in 316 Marine Grade Stainless Steel.

Long Life Expectancy

The Defender® Gull Spike has been made to last, even around coastal areas where salt in the air can quickly degrade other cheaper alternatives. This seagull spike has a 3 mm thick UV Stabilised base that ensures the spike will not become brittle or tarnished. Customers who buy the Defender® Seagull Spikes get a reassuring 25-Year “No Rust” Warranty when installed in the UK.

Silicone Fixing Holes

Along the base of the spikes are 11 cross-shaped holes. When the seagull deterrent spikes are pressed onto a ledge, the Defender® Fixing Silicone pushes through the holes, forming cross-shaped rivets that lock the gull spikes firmly in place. If you would prefer and the surface allows, screws or nails can be used as alternatives to glue.

Snappable Sections

Along the base of the Defender® Gull Spikes are 9 breakable sections that can simply be snapped apart with your fingers. This makes it easy to fit the spike to any length of ledge without leaving any areas unprotected.

Marine 316 Grade

Seagulls are prevalent in coastal areas so we now offer the Defender® Gull Spike in 316 Marine Grade Stainless Steel as an alternative to the standard 304 Grade Stainless Steel. 316 steel has added Molybdenum which makes it particularly resistant to sodium chloride and therefore perfect for the harsher environment of the coast.

Defender® Seagull Spikes - Key Info

Which birds are the gull spikes suitable for?

  • Seagulls
  • Pigeons

The Defender® Seagull Control Spikes are designed with longer pins to enable them to stop seagulls. Therefore, if seagulls are causing your issue, this is the deterrent spike for you. We have three other gull deterrents that can be used for seagulls - The Defender® Ridge Spike, The Defender® Thistle®, and The Defender® Chimney Pot Strap. You can view all products suitable for seagulls here.

Where can I use seagull spikes?

Defender® Seagull Spikes will get rid of seagulls from a ledge up to 20 cm (8 inches). If the ledge is wider, you can add a second row of spikes, leaving as small a gap as possible between the tops of the pins. If the seagulls are trying to nest in or on your chimney, it is important to stop them before they begin to nest. The nesting debris the seagulls use to build a nest can cause fires if the chimney is operational. In this instance we would recommend Defender® Chimney Pot Spikes.

How do seagull spikes work?

The individual pins are 15 cm (6 inches) long and stop seagulls from being able to land wherever they are installed correctly, preventing gulls from nesting or roosting. The Defender® Seagull Spikes are a completely humane solution for any seagull problem. Each seagull deterrent spike has 20 pins made from 304 Grade Stainless Steel. This is one of the best methods for humane seagull control, recommended by PiCAS.

How to install Defender® Seagull Spikes

Defender® Seagull Spikes - Photographic Installation Guide

The Defender® Seagull Deterrent Spike can be installed by anyone who has a small amount of DIY knowledge and safe access to the area that needs protection.

Step 1 - Clean the Area: Before starting any installation of seagulls spikes, it is essential that the area is clean, dry and free from droppings and debris. It is important to look up; it may be that the source of the mess is actually from ledges or pipes higher up on the building. If this is the case you will need to spike these as well. If this is not done, then droppings, twigs etc. may fall onto the seagull spikes below rendering them less effective.

Dampen down the area with a disinfectant spray like Germ Clear™ Bird Droppings Disinfectant Spray and remove any loose droppings or debris. If a seagull has already been using the area it may be heavily soiled with seagull droppings. If this is the case please see our "How to Safely Remove Bird Droppings Guide" for more in-depth cleaning advice.

Step 2 - Fixing Methods: The best way to install seagull spikes is to use the specifically designed Defender® Pigeon Spike Fixing Silicone. This adhesive is formulated to create an extra strong bond with the polycarbonate base of our seagull spikes. However, the gull spike strips can also be nailed or screwed into position through the premade fixing holes along the base. They can also be cable tied in position.

Step 3 - Silicone: You will need a caulking gun (not provided) to use the silicone we sell. Use the caulking gun to squeeze a bead of silicone about 8 mm wide along the base of the seagull spike. If you find the surface to be uneven or rough, you may need to use slightly more. Always check the suitability of surfaces for use with Defender® Silicone. For more information, please visit the product page Defender® Bird Spike Fixing Silicone. If you do not have a caulking gun, we have them available to purchase here and we also have a handy guide on "How to use a Caulking Gun Guide" if you haven't used one before.

Step 4 - Positioning: Stick the first row of seagull deterrent spikes towards the front of the leading edge. Press down firmly so the glue oozes out through the little holes. If the gap behind the pins is greater than 10cm (4 inches) seagulls may get in behind. It is therefore necessary to install another row of spikes into this space to block it. For very wide ledges 3 or more rows of spikes may be required, remembering to leave as small a gap as possible between the tops of the pins of adjacent rows.

Spike the highest part of the ledge first then move on to spike the lower sections afterwards. If this is not done then seagulls will overcome any spikes on lower parts by standing on the raised section. Repeat the process until the area is fully protected. Every effort should be made to spike all possible landing sites 2.5 cm or greater. Along the base of the Defender® Gull Spikes are 9 breakable sections that can simply be snapped apart with your fingers. This makes it easy to fit the spike to any length of ledge without leaving any areas unprotected.

Step 6 – Cavities and Raised Sections: Seagulls are very strong and can be very possessive of their chosen nesting or roosting sites. If there is a cavity, hole or raised section above the ledge being protected, every effort should be made to protect this too. If there is a hole behind the area, make sure this is blocked and no birds are trapped behind.
