Getting Rid of Pigeons under Solar Panels in Norfolk

Solar Panel Protection from Pigeons in Norfolk

The county of Norfolk is located in East Anglia, bordering the North Sea as well as the other counties of Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire and Suffolk. The county is one of the largest ceremonial counties in England, though it is not densely populated having only a population of roughly 860,000. It includes the districts of Norwich, South Norfolk, Great Yarmouth, Broadland, North Norfolk, King’s Lynn and West Norfolk and Breckland.

The county has been settled since before the Roman era and there have been many historic discoveries in Norfolk. For instance, in the villages of Happisburgh flint tools dating back over 800,000 years ago were found.

These tools are the oldest evidence of human occupation in the whole of the UK. Not only that, but in Thetford Forest near Lynford evidence was found pertaining to the Neanderthals, with a number of prehistoric animals also being found. There have also been Bronze Age sites near Holme-next-the-Sea, Stalham, Foulsham and Brandon and an Iron Age site found near Snettisham.

However, the county’s well-known story perhaps comes from during the Roman era when famously Boudicca of the Iceni tribe started a revolt against Roman occupation following the death of her husband, the King of the Iceni.

The revolt was successful at first but eventually failed. However, supposedly rather than hand herself over to the Romans, Boudicca decided to commit suicide in one last act of defiance when the revolt failed. Boudicca has become one of the most legendary women in British history and a hugely important cultural symbol to the UK. The only shame now is that she isn’t around to stop the occupation of the pigeons!

Pigeons Nesting Under Solar Panels? - Getting rid of Pigeons under Solar Panels with Direct Solar Care

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) 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.
