Bird Proofing

This is our main area of expertise. We have done hundreds of such jobs to our client’s satisfactions.

Pigeons getting under solar panels. This results in bird fouling accumulation on the roof or panels which can:

  • Reduce the power output of your panels. (see solar panel cleaning)
  • Results in increased insect activity in your home due to the fouling attracting insects looking to feed on it or lay eggs in it- I have seen a house become infested with flies because of this.
  • Panels becoming damaged by birds and stop working altogether.
  • The birds not letting you sleep due to the noise they make on the roof 24 hours a day.
  • Gutters becoming blocked with bird fouling and bird fouling in the garden

The Right Solution:

The best method of fixing this problem is to install a mesh based system (not chicken wire as some people commonly suggest) around the entire solar panel array. The benefits of this being done properly include:

  • Being very discreet and not very visible from ground level
  • Not invalidating the warranty of your panels
  • Involves no drilling and screwing thereby preventing damage to your panels.
  • Can be removed if necessary without any damage to the array to allow servicing.
