The top of a light fixture is flat and warm. That’s the perfect place for birds to nest. Of course, even if you are an ornithologist, a birdwatcher, a twitcher, or just a birder, you don’t want birds nesting on top of your light fixtures. Here’s three primary reasons you always want bird spikes.
1. There will be a significant amount of bird droppings on the ground around the nest.
2. The birds nesting on the light fixture may be protected by law, stopping you from servicing or changing a light fixture.
3. Bird nests insulate the top of the fixture. That increases the operating temperature of the light fixture, which in turn reduces the life of the LEDs.
