This Instructable is to show how to create a set of bird spikes. Note, if only a few spikes are needed, this might not be the best method. Nails through a strip of wood seems to be another common method and it does not require the purchase of a lot of fencing material.
Step 1: Gather materials
Galvanized 2"x3" 16-gauge fencing material (I used vinyl coated galv.)
Roofing nails (galvanized, 1-1/4" should be fine)
Fence clipper or wire cutter
Needle-nose pliers (angled work best)
Work gloves (not necessary, but handy)
It's critical that the fencing material is made of a material that won't rust. Even if it's coated, the material should be galvanized steel or stainless-steel as cutting the material will break the coating. Also, it should be a minimum 16-gauge wire.
