Getting Rid of Pigeons under Solar Panels in Huntingdonshire

Solar Panel Protection from Pigeons in Huntingdon

Huntingdonshire is a district in the county of Cambridgeshire. Historically the district used to be its own county, then in 1965 it merged with Peterborough to form the county Huntingdonshire and Peterborough and then the new county, in 1874, merged with the county of Cambridgeshire and Isle of Ely to form the modern county of Cambridgeshire.

Passing through the south of the county is the River Great Ouse, one of the longest rivers in the UK. The River goes through the towns of Holywell, Fenstanton, St Ives, Hemingford Grey, Hemingford Abbots, Houghton, Wyton, Hartford, Huntingdon, Godmanchester, Brampton, Buckden, Offord Cluny, Offord D’Arcy, Diddington, Southoe, Little Paxton, St Neots, Eaton Ford, Eynesbury and Eaton Socon.

There are few major market towns in the area including the towns of Ramsey and St Ives but the main town of the Huntingdonshire, from which the county gets its name, is Huntingdon.

The market town of Huntingdon is most famous for being the birthplace of Oliver Cromwell, who became Lord Protector of the Commonwealth of England, Scotland, and Ireland in the 17th century. Essentially, Cromwell took the place of the King during the 1600s. He passed a number of ridiculous laws during his time as leader, including the banning of Christmas.

But don’t worry Direct Solar Care will only get rid of your pigeon problem, not Christmas.

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.
