Bird Control Solutions
The easiest and most effective solution is the Daddi Long Legs
; its wavy rods interfere with the birds’ wings so they can’t land. If birds are on the arm holding the light in place, that can be stopped with Bird-Flite
can be used. Optical Gel
can also be used to keep them off both the light and the mounting arm.

Consider how maintenance people will change bulbs and service the lights, and don’t drill holes in the tops of lights.
Use caution as most of this work needs to be done from a lift.
