No More Droppings Down the Chimney Thanks to Bird-Shock

The end result as can be clearly seen in these photos is a professional, low-profile application. And the best result is that the birds left the site entirely.

The owner of a large residence with five chimneys wanted an invisible solution to their bird problem. Birds were perching on the edges of the chimneys and making a mess down the sides. The installer showed the homeowner Bird Barrier’s Bird-Shock Flex-Track and Dura-Spike. Each product had its advantages: Bird-Shock would be invisible from the ground, but would require lots of wiring between the chimneys. Dura-Spike would not require any wiring, but could be seen from the ground. The installer set sample pieces of each product up and allowed the homeowner to choose. They chose Bird-Shock Flex-Track.

The five chimneys needed less than 20 feet of track each. Bird-Shock Flex-Track’s versatile composition allows it to curve or be cut to make corners, as was needed for the square chimneys. Due to the size and layout of the house, it required several hundred feet of lead wire to connect them all together. The installer tucked the wire under roof shingles and zip-tied it to the structure whenever possible. He chose beige, one of Flex-Track’s five available colors to blend with the color of the chimneys.
