Pigeon Proofing Solar Panels – York

Getting Rid of Pigeons under Solar Panels in York

Solar Panel Protection from Pigeons in York

With the oldest shopping street in Europe, York residents constantly live their lives surrounded by incredible history. From Romans to Vikings to the Tudors, York has seen it all!

In 2002, the International Ghost Research Foundation announced, after a long period of testing, that of all the places in Europe, York city is the most haunted of them all! That’s hardly surprising if you look further into the history of the city and its people.

Nowhere is safe from the ghosts as they are everywhere, such as the Jack Wills store in Stonegate, All Saint’s Church, and in various spots along the River Ouse! Not only are there young and old ghosts dotted about the city, the Treasurer’s House in York is in the Guinness Book of Records for having the “Ghost of Greatest Longevity”!

If that’s not enough to scare off the pigeons that plague the locals then we have only one suggestion of what might help…

…Direct Solar Care of course!

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: have a look on our services page) 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.

Direct Solar Care provide solar panel pest protection for homes & businesses across all regions of York.
