Frequently Asked Questions:

How do you stop pigeons from going under your solar panels?

How do you stop pigeons from going under your solar panels?

We are often asked how do you stop pigeons from going under your solar panels and with Direct Solar Care the solution is easy! We take all the hassle out of pigeons getting under your solar panels by fitting a galvanised steel guard around your solar panels. By creating a physical barrier, you can ensure that you will have stopped pigeons from going under your solar panels. In our experience, this generally means that they will not roost on your property either as pigeons prefer to roost close to where they are nesting.

Can pigeons damage solar panels?

Can pigeons damage solar panels?

Pigeons can damage solar panels if they are left to their own devices. When solar panels were designed, they were not designed to have a family of pigeons building their nests, and living on the wiring underneath. As two adult pigeons and a few squabs can be relatively heavy, they can break the MC4 clips that connect the wires to the underneath of your solar panels. This can be a costly repair to make with the average quote being around £1600 + VAT! We think that it is better to sort out the pigeons sooner rather than later to avoid any damage to your solar panels!

How do you bird proof a solar panel?

How do you bird proof a solar panel?

The short answer is you bird proof a solar panel by making sure that they cannot get underneath. We choose to do this through fitting a mesh around the circumference of the solar panels. The material that we use is a galvanised steel so that we can ensure that it will not rust and it is strong enough to keep out pigeons, jackdaws, and squirrels. It is important that when bird proof a solar panel, you make sure that the mesh holes are not large enough for other birds to get through or push past, as otherwise you could start the whole cycle of pests under your panels again!

Do solar panels attract birds?

Do solar panels attract birds?

Solar panels attract birds in the sense that they are warm, comfortable, and safe for the birds to live under. When coupled with the fact that birds, especially pigeons, will try to nest in the same area and conditions that they were born in, this makes solar panels an increasingly attractive place for birds to live. In our experience, once we stop a set of birds living under one set of solar panels, they will move to the next nearest set of solar panels. So it might be worth talking to your neighbour if they have panels too, about getting rid of the pests together. We always offer a discount if two or more neighbours go ahead at once!
