Pigeon Proofing for Solar Panels

5 Star Service and Hundreds of Happy Customers in:
Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire & North London

Are pigeons nesting under you solar panels?

Everyone likes a bargain (I know I do!). TVs, laptops vacuum cleaners – if you can find what you want for the lowest price it’s a no brainer, right? Well, yes, but not when it comes to protecting your solar panels from pigeons. You might think you’re getting a great price – but will that cheap deal prove costly in the long run?

Pigeon proofing for solar panels will last for many years when carried out correctly. At Area Pest Control we have a specially designed proofing system that uses galvanised steel and we guarantee our work for six years. Unfortunately, not everyone is a pest control specialist like us. While a quote from a local roofer or builder may seem like a bargain and their work is probably carried out in good faith, they just don’t have the expertise and knowledge to keep pigeons at bay.

Within days, the pesky birds can be back under your solar panels and waking you up again.

We understand the behaviour of pigeons and how they will react to changes in their environment – so we know what to do to stop pigeons ruining your solar panels for good. We’re often called to see customers who’ve gone for cheap pigeon proofing only to find it hasn’t worked and pigeons have re-entered under the solar panels. We’ve had to remove badly fitted pigeon spikes or incorrect materials such as chicken wire and damp proof membrane.

Ignoring specialist pest control help can cost customers dear. We’ve seen materials wrongly fitted that have restricted air flow under the panels and even cases where things have been screwed into the solar panels themselves – which will invalidate your warranty straight away.

Fact is – solar panel pigeon proofing is specialist work that should be carried out by experienced installers. We’ve carried out more than 500 jobs for private households, local councils, solar panel installation companies and big businesses like E.on Energy.

We know our pigeons… we know our job
