What is the blue stuff she's chewing on? That isn't blue pvc cement is it? That can be really really dangerous! If nothing else, you can get vet wrap and over those spots so she can't get at them easily. Then keep a very very close eye on her to replace it at need. Vet wrap is also great for the perches so she has some traction.

I don't know if tape has any chemicals to make it "stick"
You might want to be careful about that.

I'm thinking about making one out of PVC pipe and using vet wrap or hemp rope?

I've heard of that before, don't know for sure if it will work or not but it sounds like it would. If you make one, post pictures and instructions!
