Definitely worth it. Come across one mite infested habitat and you'll never want to chance it again. I found out the hard way.
For some strange reason right after I took Google's bait and upgraded my Dropcam Pro, my door mantle became 'the' place to roost in town. Maybe they run hotter? Spikes solved the problem, as you can see:
Seems overpriced for a very common product. Not sure why I would want an Axis brand spikey thing when I can get these at Home Depot for a lot cheaper.

that is the toughest looking housing around... fortunately I have never had an issue with birds roosting on surveillance cameras... if I do I know where to go.

If not, what works better?
How about install a piezo speaker or buzzer into the housing and set it on a timer to go off every hour... a lot of business around here install speakers into the eaves and gabel ends of buildings that play a really annoying noise every hour to scare away birds and to keep them from nesting...
