The nuisance that is caused by pigeons is a significant problem for people who have to look after buildings, as they are not only a health hazard but they can leave beautiful architecture looking ugly with the marks from their feces. There are many different methods that have been designed to deal with the problem, and the pigeon shock track is an innovative approach that is a little more expensive than the traditional methods, but is certainly more aesthetic than some of the spikier solutions.
How Pigeon Shock Track Works
The pigeon shock track is a thin strip which can be attached to almost any flat surface on a building, which will then prevent the pigeons from landing permanently on that area of the building. Although it is a thin strip, at its core there is a metal wire which will give the pigeon a startling, but not a harmful electric shock that will drive it away.
Where Can The Shock Track Be Used?
These shock tracks can be installed on almost any surface of a building where pigeons are likely to land, with window ledges and the ridge of the roof being particularly common places to install these systems. They are actually quite low profile, so they can also get into corners where pigeons might consider nesting where other solutions such as spikes may not fit properly.
The Benefits Of Using The Pigeon Shock Track
The key reason that many people will choose to use the pigeon shock track solutions is that they are low profile, and to those who are looking at the building, they are almost invisible. They are also not harmful to the birds, as the strength of the electric shock is minimal, rather it is only to startle the birds away from that location and to prevent them from returning.
Alternatives To This Method Of Keeping Pigeons Away
There are several different ways to stop pigeons from perching on window ledges and rooftops, and one of the most common are the strips of pigeon spikes, but these are often quite a bit larger than the shock track, and are more obtrusive in terms of the visual attractiveness of the building. If the problem you have is with pigeons landing on the roof, then anti pigeon netting can be installed, but this is also quite obtrusive, and if you are trying to protect the ridge of the roof, then it is also quite an obtrusive installation too.
