Getting Rid of Pigeons under Solar Panels in Cardiff
Solar Panel Protection from Pigeons in Cardiff
Pigeon Proofing Solar Panels Cardiff and across the UK is what we do, with over 4,000+ installations completed.
With a motto of “Y ddraig goch ddyry cychwyn”, (that’s “The Red Dragon will lead the way” to those of us who don’t speak Welsh) it is hardly surprising to learn that the history of Cardiff starts well before the Romans arrived in 55 BC. In fact before the Romans decided to move onto British shores, Cardiff was part of the territory of a fierce Celtic tribe, the Silures, who flourished in the Iron Age. Their territory also included modern-day Breconshire, Monmouthshire and Glamorgan.
In the more modern times of the 20th and 21st century, Cardiff was elected to be the Capital of Wales, and since 1922, aside from the communities of Lisvane, Old St Mellons, Pentyrch, Radyr and Morganstown, St Fagans and Tongwynlais, has included the suburban cathedral area of Llandaff, which is home to the Archbishop of Wales.
While record lovers will be interested to know that the world’s oldest record store can be found in Cardiff (27, The Morgan Arcade to be exact), the young and old generations alike will appreciate the cultural significance of Cardiff as it is the home of BAFTA-winning Doctor Who, not to mention its much loved older sibling: Torchwood. With a shrine in Mermaid Quay to the much loved Torchwood character, Ianto Jones, Direct Solar Care have found it a little unsurprising that there are so many staunch pigeon Doctor Who and Torchwood fans nesting under the local solar panels!
Pigeons Nesting Under Solar Panels
Domestic or Commercial, solar panels have become a viable option for everyone at an ever-increasing rate, and a money saving one at that! Here at Direct Solar Care we have noticed one down side: pigeons nesting under solar panels, along with jackdaws, other birds and squirrels, and more to the point, these pesky critters nesting or destroying the wires under the solar panels. Unfortunately, no one is warned about this potential problem when they are buying the solar panels and so are unaware of the seriousness of their pest problem. The solar panels offer protection from the wind and rain and also radiate heat, thereby giving warmth to the pigeons or squirrels, providing an ideal place to roost or practice their chewing ability!
Solar Panel Pigeon Problem
Not only are your solar panels’ wires at risk, the yield of your panels could drop significantly should the birds foul on your panels. This said, our customers do not tend to worry about their wires as long before this becomes a problem, you will notice the noise caused by the flocks of pigeons nesting on your roof, waking you up at 5am every day, even Saturdays! Together with the mess, and the threat from bird mites (effectively microscopic bedbugs: have a look here: ((bird mites page in DP))) and the fact that the pigeon breeding season is continually through March to October, I’m sure any sufferer of pests under solar panels will be sure to tell you to get it sorted out sooner rather than later! We understand the terror and mayhem squirrels and pigeons cause so we additionally offer a 5-year pigeon proofing warranty on all of our work so that should you have a re-invasion of any pest under your panels, we will come out free of charge and rid you of them.

How do we Protect your Solar Panels?
We are often asked “How to get rid of Pigeons under solar panels?” Our solution – Each team is equipped with Easi Dec scaffolding which they can use to access your roof to avoid damaging your property. In most cases we don’t need to drill anything into your panels for fixings as we use our own specially manufactured clips to attach a galvanised steel mesh to prevent any animal entering the area underneath your panels. The mesh is custom cut to size to ensure a smooth border that is hardly visible from the ground and cannot be pushed through by any pests.
