Everyone is enjoying the onset of springtime, especially our feathered friends! While it's lovely to hear the dawn chorus and to see a variety of birds visiting our gardens now it's nesting season, they can become problematic and so BS Fixings have introduced a new range of products designed to protect any structure.

One of the biggest problems associated with birds is their droppings, which are at best unsightly. Bird droppings also contain dangerous bacteria that can affect human health and so it's essential that they're cleaned up quickly and completely before installing humane bird prevention spikes and wire balloons.

Removing a buildup of bird droppings is, let's face it, never going to be the most pleasant of jobs. To make the work progress quickly and efficiently, we recommend using Germ Clear, a product formulated specifically to remove the offending material.

Germ Clear is simple to use: simply spray directly onto the affected area and leave to soak in for a couple of minutes. The surface should then be soaked completely, which will allow the formula to penetrate deeply into the dried droppings. Once this has been done, a metal scraper should be used to remove the buildup. Respray the area and use a stiff brush to remove any stubborn droppings before completing the job with a final spray and a wipe with a damp cloth. Once dry, the area can then be installed with bird prevention spikes, which are guaranteed to affix firmly to the prepared area.
