Why Should I Take Action To Pigeon Proof Solar Panels?
Solar panels come with a high up-front cost. Their benefit and value is for them to work for a number of years. Therefore, it is important to take action as soon as you notice pigeons near them.
Pigeon guano is corrosive. Left untreated, it becomes harder to clean. Depending on where they are perching, their poo can cause wires to rot, or damage the main surface of your panels. Heavier pigeons may also cause structural damage by disturbing clips, or other fixings.

You do not need a pest control professional to tell you, everyone knows pigeons are both messy and noisy. The more pigeons on your property, the greater the noise disruption through the roof each morning, or whilst your employees are working. Additionally, the more pigeons on your property, the more pigeon mess visitors to your home our business see
3. Impact On Effectiveness
Pigeon guano on the main panels will impact on their effectiveness. Over time, the yearly saving that the panels offer will reduce.
4. Carriers Of Other Pests
Pigeons can carry a number of different bird mites. These can find a way into your home or business, and you would require insecticidal pest control treatments to treat.
How Do I Stop Pigeons Under Solar Panels?
There are two options to consider when trying to stop pigeons nesting under your solar panels.
It is important to try and make your home or business less appealing to pigeons. Good housekeeping, such as removing outdoor food sources, keeping trees near your property trimmed back, can help to limit pigeons finding their way on to your roof. Additionally, these measures will also make your property less appealing for other pests such as squirrels, rats, and mice.

How Much Does Pigeon Proofing Solar Panels Cost?
We do not offer a set price for pigeon proofing of solar panels. This is because each job is different. Solar panels come in different shapes as well as sizes. Additionally, access requirements for a bungalow are likely to be different in comparison to a three-storey town house. Sometimes scaffolding is needed for us to work safely. This will impact on the overall price. There are further issues to consider, such as the level of fouling on site, as well as the number of pigeons.
Instead, we guarantee to offer you a free site survey. Our RSPH / BPCA trained surveyors will assess your requirements, as well as what access is needed for us to work safely.
