Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Good product, accomplished intended job
Good product, high value for price. Bird spikes installed above swing set bay to keep bird droppings off swing. Accomplished the task very nicely.
May come with some spikes loose from plastic base. Not hard to reinstall with screwdriver to push them back in place.
Installs quickly and will remove over winter as I don't think it will survive ice and snow but quick enough to remove and reinstall in spring.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Bird Spike
Fantanstic! For years, my neighbor has been feeding pigeons in our common driveway and needless to say, the impact on my car was huge. The first day I put up the Bird Spike, the pigeons were gone. Best of all, they found a new place to land. Now they are on my neighbor's roof pooping on her car. Finally after 10 years, the shoe is on the other foot.
The only draw back to the product is that there were no instructions or mounting hardware. But, anyone with a bit of common sense could figure it out.
The cost of the product is definitely off set by the reduction in car washes.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by magayver product works but it rusted within the first year
I bought the Stainless Steel one because I wanted it to look silver and new looking for a long time, however; before one year after installation the spikes are rusted. What kind of stainless steel is that material that rusted within one year. Are these spikes only stainless steel looking? I am unhappy since I paid the highest price of $49.99 for each box thinking it was worth it so they would remain un-rusted.
I bought another 10 feet just recently and I expect them to rust as well, too bad they sell cheap product at the expensive price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Very happy with the product
The product was easy to install and works great. We glued them to the problem ledge. The pigeons flew around for a few days then left. Have not been back

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cash This product solved my problem.
My shopping mall was infested with pigeons, and I needed a safe way to solve this problem. The bird stoppers enabled me to keep the pigeons from upsetting the customers and destroying the property while maintaining the integrity of protecting these species. This item was easy to install and seems to be solving the problem.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FrustratedVultureSufferer Serving its purpose
We bought this as deterrent to vultures -- larger birds than the product is intended for. But it seems to be working. We put the spikes near a window they had been attacking, so they can't get close enough to attack it any more. We put the extras on a deck railing but didn't have enough to cover the whole railing - so they just sit next to them. It's not something you really want on railings tho where people could get hurt. We were not aware the product did not come with the glue so had to go purchase that. To apply on the top ridges of your roof you will need a professional or at least a very long ladder and someone confident enough to go up there. The spikes can be bent over pretty easily since they are simply attached to plastic. I do not yet know how durable they will be as we have only had them on a couple weeks.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Doug Good product but cheaply made. Rather expensive for what you get.
The spikes on this product are not permanently attached to the base with any adhesive; they are just popped in by force into a flexible hole and can come out. I found on half of the strips at least one and sometimes two spikes popped out, usually on the ends, while I was installing them. They are not difficult to put back, however, as you can re- insert the spike in the space, hold down with a small screwdriver, and tap down with a hammer on the top of the screwdriver to force the spike back fully into its hole for a tight fit. This takes a little trial and error before getting the hang of it though. I'm disappointed that the BirdX Company would design their product so poorly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by faithwalkin Birds B Gone is RIGHT!!
I LOVE this product!! I was so excited when I heard about it. This is the first time in years I can hang ferns on my front porch and not be at war with the birds. I just broke them apart and nestled them in the plant. No more mess on the porch -- no more nests -- no more digging out the center and ruining the plant. I put them in corners where the birds build nests -- no nests this year!! (I am not anti-bird, but I HATE the mess they make!!) I also put a strip on my mailbox because in putting on my house numbers, I inadvertently made a perch for the birds. Big messes all over my mailbox :-( Thank goodness I had just purchased the spikes -- wired one across my mailbox -- and no more bird droppings to clean off! I only wish I had thought of this!! (maybe not so attractive, but I don't even care)
