If you’re tired of dealing with pesky birds roosting on your chimney, a chimney spike kit may be the solution you’ve been looking for. These kits are designed to prevent birds such as pigeons, seagulls, and other species from perching or nesting on your chimney.

The kits typically include a set of long, pointed spikes that are installed along the top of the chimney. These spikes make it difficult for birds to land or perch, deterring them from roosting on your chimney.

In addition to the spikes, many chimney spike kits also include a chimney topper or cap cowl. This is a protective cover that fits over the top of the chimney and helps to prevent birds from entering the flue.

Installing a chimney spike kit is a simple and effective way to keep birds at bay and protect your chimney from damage. Just be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully to ensure proper installation and maximum effectiveness. With a chimney spike kit in place, you can enjoy a bird-free chimney and peace of mind.

Inside the chimney pot.

One way to prevent seagulls from landing on the rim of a chimney pot is to use a Scarborough Chimney Spike. To do this, bend each side of the spike into a fan shape that is 3-4 inches wider than the diameter of the chimney pot. Then, insert the spike into the pot until only 6-7 inches of the spikes are protruding above the rim. This length should be longer than a seagull’s inside leg measurement, making it difficult for the bird to land on the pot. This method can be effective in deterring seagulls from landing on your property.

 In between parallel rows of pots. 

To prevent seagulls from nesting in the gaps between chimney pots on a double-row stack of 4 or more pots, you can use Scarborough Chimney Spikes. For each pair of pots, you will need one spike. For example, you will need 2 spikes for a 4-pot stack, 3 spikes for a 6-pot stack, and 4 spikes for an 8-pot stack. To use the spikes, unfold them into a double-fan shape and place them in the middle of the pots, with no gaps larger than 100mm between the tips of each system. Secure the units in place with cement or screws. It is also a good idea to place a system in each of the pots, as this will prevent seagulls from landing on the pots when the spikes are in place between them.

In the V-Shaped area behind the chimney stack where the stack meets a pitched roof.

To prevent seagulls from nesting in the v-shaped groove behind a chimney where it meets a pitched roof, you can use Scarborough Chimney Spikes. For every 300 mm of width of the chimney stack, you will need one spike system. To use the spikes, unfold them into a double-fan shape with the spikes pointing up the slope of the roof. Secure the longest rod to the back of the chimney stack brickwork at the top and bottom using the screws and clips provided. Make sure to leave no gaps larger than 100 mm between the spike systems or beside them. This will help to firmly anchor the spikes in place and deter seagulls from nesting in this area.
