Getting Rid of Pigeons under Solar Panels in Cheshire

Solar Panel Protection from Pigeons in Cheshire

Found in North East England, Cheshire is a mainly rural county with a population of only just over 1 million. Its rural nature means there are several stunning parks in the area that people can visit. These include Tegg’s Nose Country Park in Macclesfield, Marbury Country Park in Comberbach and Brereton Heath Local Nature Reserve in Congleton.

Cheshire has become well-known for its industry in silk, salt and Cheshire Cheese. Salt has been mined in the area since the Roman era where it took place in Middlewich and Nantwich, both of which lie in the district of Cheshire East, and Northwich, which lies in the district of Cheshire West and Chester. The salt mining industry even now still exists in Northwich and also in Runcorn, located in the district of Halton and in Winsford, located in Cheshire West and Chester.

The county has also been home to some famous musicians – Gary Barlow was raised in Frodsham and Harry Styles is from Holmes Chapel. Not only them but Lewis Carroll, the author of ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’, hails from Daresbury in Halton. His character, the Cheshire Cat, takes its name from his home county. Cheshire even has its own Bond as Daniel Craig was born in the city of Chester. And the county has its own Bond villains, the pigeons bothering all the locals.

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.
