Pigeon Proofing Solar Panels in Buckinghamshire

Buckinghamshire, located in South East England, is an incredible county with beautiful gardens, country estates, and houses. Its largest district is Milton Keynes, though the districts of Aylesbury Vale and Wycombe are not too far behind.


There are a number famous houses located in the county such as the Prime Minister’s country retreat, Chequers, is located near Ellesborough. Also to be found in the county, near the village of Steeple Claydon, is Claydon House, the former home of Florence Nightingale. Moreover, Buckinghamshire was home to other well-known people like Roald Dahl, who now has two museums in his name, one in Great Missenden and the other in Aylesbury. And perhaps the most famous site in the county is Bletchley Park, which is found in Milton Keynes and was the home of codebreakers in World War II.


The beauty of the landscape in Buckinghamshire cannot be understated. Parts of Chiltern Hills, which passes through the districts of Aylesbury Vale, Chiltern, and Wycombe, is considered to be an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Also, two of the longest rivers in England pass through the county of Buckinghamshire. The River Great Ouse passes near Westbury and then through Water Stratford in Buckingham, Radclive in Aylesbury Vale, the town of Buckingham, Thornton, Beachampton, Stony Stratford, New Bradwell, Newport Pagnell, and Olney. The River Thames runs along the borders of South Bucks and Wycombe, passing through Henley-on-Thames, Mill End in Hambleden, Medmenham, Marlow, Little Marlow, Hedsor Wharf in Hedsor, Bourne End, Taplow, Dorney and Boveney in Burnham. That explains why all the pigeons are flocking to Buckinghamshire – they must all be thirsty!

Pigeons Nesting Under Solar Panels

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 downside: 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 here: ((bird mites page in DP))) 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.

In most cases, we don’t need to drill anything into your panels for fixings as we use our own specially manufactured clips to attach a galvanised steel mesh to prevent any animal entering the area underneath your panels.
