Sorry just realised.... the prime focus was to deter potential burglars nots cats!!!

I need some plastic ones to deter pigeons, but I've never found any reasonably priced ones. These are a bit heavy duty for pigeons, but thanks for posting.

EDIT:

Great price though, and if the spikes were longer I'd split them single and buy them.

Carpet grippr does the same thing only much cheaper and wont harm birds/cats. Also potential scumbag burglars will get a very nice surprise when they put their hands on top of your fence...

Well at the most these will cost you just over a fiver.... not a fortune to just buy and find out if there any good?
ps - if they are good maybe the pigeons will stay away for good !

Our cats aren't fazed by these at all, but I bet it would cause someone trying to jump the fence a bit of a problem!
I found them cheaper on amazon, as you really need the three strips wide. one strip just looks all but pointless. The more you buy, the cheaper it is obviously.
An example is 9m for £14.10, £1.57/m

Or 22m for £27.87, £1.27/m

this deal works out £2.44/m

trellis would be a better burglar deterrent, wouldn't take much to make those spikes ineffective.

And then come back and put a brick through your window unfortunately.

What's wrong with the old cement and broken glass method? Deters both burglars and cats. As do carpet gripper strips.

I am tempted, but the spikes look a little short for those crafty pigeons. The ones I looked before had long spikes but they were a ridiculous price per metre. I may yet just suspend a "tightrope" of wire across the offending area.

Or worse still claim compensation and have you nicked for not being legal etc. Sadly these days the criminals are more protected than the home owner wanting to protect their property

I've put some of these on our fence a year or two back and they didn't seem to deter cats, squirrels or pigeons. In the end I decided that trellis made more sense - agree with uberboy. Very thorny climbing roses would probably also be a good burglar deterrent and more decorative.

yeah, poor cats cant jump over and **** in your garden.

I'd love to **** in some peoples garden.

At least cats bury their poo, which is more than dogs do do.

Genuine Question - how can trellis be more effective ????

Nothing nicer than gardening and then putting your hand in burried cat crap.

Makes the garden unsafe for children. What are cats for anyway? They sit on your kitchen work surface and their backside touches where you prepare food, disgusting!

Nothing wrong with it at all, but sadly not politically correct in these crap times.

All methods like glass and spikes used to deter burglars can cause an injury to humans who can and will sue for injury. Trespass is not against the law .... it is a civil matter. Better off using a good CCTV ... this may not prevent you being burgled but neither will glass or spikes and you will not get sued .... unless the burglars fall over on a dodgy paving slab etc. etc. Oh and by the way you are not allowed to use weapons to fight them off either. Sad but true despite the tories saying they will get tough you will get sued all the way.

And you can't even have a dangerous dog either.

Well there was me thinking any poo was good poo, re gardening. After a google it would appear any non-veggie animal poo is not good - can't post "non-shop" links atm.

I stand humbled by your knowledge of the subject. And I apologise profusely for potentially misleading the readership.

Yup - only herbivores produce fertilizer.
Carnivores (meat eaters) don't produce fertilizer.

try here i bought mine here and there quite reasonable and robust

bury it? your having a laugh! I got a neighbours cat that **at on wooden decking, several times over xmas. They just **** wherever they like, They've done it on fake grass, gravel borders, among plants and in terracotta potted plants - its never covered or buried. I don't like dog **** either but they don't jump over high fences and **** in my garden where my kids want to play, but I guess at least cats don't **** in a bag, tying it up then leaving it in a hedge or tree like some gypsy xmas decoration.

Bury it, lol. Is that when a cat ****'s in a litter tray, then proceeds to flick the entire contents over your kitchen floor? lovely.

I'm just wondering how I got into a debate about cat's pooing with a member named splatsplatsplat. Is the universe conspiring against me?

I only popped in to look at the spikes. Anyone know of of any long-spike ones for the pigeons?

Give it a few years and these will be outlawed because it might harm the burglars and it's against their human rights.

They're probably just making a dirty protest against your fake grass.

Plus you have to be careful with CCTV. If your camera catches other people's private property (including garden area, pavements etc) then it's classed as illegal. Stupid I know, but the law often is when it comes to privacy.

We used to have a daily morning visit from a cat that would climb in over our six foot high gate, and when it reached the top would poo over the edge, and while I wouldn't know if it deliberately targeted it or not, pretty much without fail the poo landed on the outside latch and handle! Which I'd need to open each morning to get out my bicycle oO.

This carried on until I caught the cat one morning mid process, gave the gate a really hard kick which scared the poo back into it and it never soiled my gate again.

agreed, my attitude is that a burglar gave up their rights when they decided to rob someone. blame people like that pompous little s**t and her liberty joke organisation. i was furious she was involved in the olympics ceremony. this country has been so soft its a joke.
