Getting Rid of Pigeons under Solar Panels in Stevenage

Solar Panel Protection from Pigeons in Stevenage

St Albans is a district in the Hertfordshire and its name is shared by one of its main urban developments, the town of St Albans which is located close to the village of London Colney. The other major urban development in the district is Harpenden, a town surrounded by the villages of Redbourn and Wheathampstead.

The entire area is rich in its history, from St Albans, which is built on the Roman town of Verulamium to Harpenden, around which lies the remains of a Roman mausoleum in Rothamsted. Even the village of Sandridge had its first recorded mention in the year 796!

St Albans was the first town established on the Roman Watling Street, a road which initially linked the town to Canterbury, though later it also passed through London, Dover, Richborough, Lympne and Reculver, Wroxeter and Birrens. The reason that the Romans chose to build St Albans was due to the River Ver which flowed through the area. The River Ver starts in Lynch Lodge and passes through Markyate, Flamstead, Redbourn, St Albans and Park Street, before joining the River Colne at Bricket Wood. Like the Romans, the pigeons must also be heading to St Albans due to the River Ver – it must be great way to quench their thirst!

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.
