Eliminate the Roosting and Nesting Surfaces of Pest Birds on Your Property With The Bird-X SP-50-N Polycarbonate Bird Spike Kit

Bird-X SP-50-N Polycarbonate Bird Spike Kit, Narrow 2 1/4-Inch Width, 50 Feet Long

Sleeping with your window open can be quite refreshing and soothing to the ear-until an annoying bird comes roosting along! How many times have you tried to enjoy relaxing in your bed or sleeping in on your day off, when that pestering bird lands on your roof top, ledge, or gate in your back yard and wakes you up with that loud cawing sound of a obnoxious crow. Must drive you insane! I think we’ve all been annoyed and woken up to a birds calling, but guess what…? The secret weapon to ending those irritating bird calls has finally arrived!

Block Pest Birds from their favorite landing and roosting surfaces with the Bird-X SP 50-N Polycarbonate Stainless Bird Spike Kit. Tough, long-lasting polycarbonate plastic material provides maintenance-free protection. The spikes function as a ‘keep-out’ sign for birds. The flexibility of spikes allows mounting on most surfaces and is easy to install with adhesive. Each section of spikes covers two linear feet, and a “spread” or width of up to 6-inch. The polycarbonate design features a clear, transparent material that blends with surroundings which is great for high-profile areas – Bird-X spikes repel birds with continuous 24/7 operation that can last a lifetime.

Once installed they are maintenance-free, no upkeep or ongoing repairs are required. A bendable base mounts flat, or on concave or convex curves. Install right side up, upside down or on any angle. The two-foot strips come pre-assembled (no extra labor). Each strip “locks” with the next for a seamless fit. Strips snap to the inch for precise measurement and no wasted material. Attach with Bird Spike Adhesive Glue, nails, screws, or wire (each sold separately).

Birds instinctively fly to “landing strips” such as roof ledges, windowsills, building projections, signs, statues, trusses and beams. Now you can keep them from landing on your property and building nests with the Bird-X SP-50 Polycarbonate Bird Spike Kit; and you can save a substantial amount of money that may be incurred from damages typically caused by bird infestation and destructive, corrosive droppings that require the repair of insulation, siding, and roof replacement. Not to mention the possible diseases that are associated with birds such as Avian Flu, West Nile, Histoplasmosis, Salmonellae, E-coli, and more.

A Handyman’s dream—perfect for a casual DIYer or a professional the amazing, multi-function Rapid Tools Rapid Shark Heavy-duty Combination Utility Knife is two specialized tools in one sleek, rugged case. Tired of buying utility knives with hard to grip holders and cheap blades that breaks after a couple uses?

The all new Rapid Tools Rapid Shark Heavy-duty Combination Utility Knife is the only tool that combines a professional utility knife with a quality wire stripper, cutter and crimper.

Extra blades can also be stored within the holder and a quick change design allows you to efficiently remove an old blade and replace it with a new one. Take a bite out of your work and make that next project easier on you with a Rapid Tools Rapid Shark Heavy-duty Combination Utility Knife.
