Getting Rid of Pigeons under Solar Panels in Tyne & Wear

Solar Panel Protection from Pigeons in Tyne and Wear

Tyne and Wear is a small county found in North East England, it is in fact the fifth smallest English county. Trapped between the counties of Northumberland and County Durham, Tyne and Wear borders the North Sea to its east. Despite the small nature of the county, it is a metropolitan county and has a population of over 1.1 million. The county is thus split into the five districts of North Tyneside, South Tyneside, Newcastle upon Tyne, Gateshead and Sunderland.

The county takes its name from the two rivers that pass through the county and flow out into the North Sea, the River Wear and the River Tyne. The River Tyne, the larger of the two rivers, passes a number of settlements in the county such as Clara Vale, Newburn, Blaydon, Swalwell, Gateshead, Newcastle upon Tyne, Hebburn, Wallsend, Jarrow, North Shields, South Shields and Tynemouth. The River Wear is situated south of the River Tyne and passes the town of Washington and city of Sunderland before reaching the North Sea.

The main city of the county is Newcastle upon Tyne, the city which is more commonly known as Newcastle. Newcastle is the biggest city in the north east of England though, unfortunately, much of its population is made up of pigeons as well as people.

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 10-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.
