Getting Rid of Pigeons under Solar Panels in Devon

Pigeon Proofing Solar Panels in Devon

The county of Devon is found in the south-west of England bordered by the counties of Cornwall and Somerset. The county contains ten smaller districts including the cities of Plymouth and Exeter and the other districts of East Devon, Mid Devon, North Devon, Torridge, West Devon, South Hams, Teignbridge and Torbay.


Devon is well known for its beautiful seaside towns and resorts and its incredible rugged landscapes. Dartmoor National Park is perhaps the most obvious location of Devon’s stunning views, however, Devon does contain parts of another National Park, Exmoor. It also contains five Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which are Blackdown, East Devon, South Devon, Tamar Valley and North Devon.


The county has a deep history stretching back thousands of years – human remains have been found in Torquay that date back 30-40,000 years ago! This rich history is shown by the fact that there are 1237 Grade II* listed buildings and 427 Grade I listed buildings in Devon.


More recently Devon is known for being the home of a fair few famous names including the Olympic diver, Tom Daley. The county is also the birthplace of the Coldplay singer Chris Martin, who was born in Whitestone, and it is the birthplace of the world famous rock band, Muse, which was formed in the town of Teignmouth. However, some less brilliant musicians from Devon are the pigeons who wake everyone up at 5 o’clock in the morning.

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 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 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.

How do we Protect your Solar Panels?

We are often asked, “How to get rid of Pigeons under solar panels?” Our solution – Each team is equipped with Easi Dec scaffolding which they can use to access your roof to avoid damaging your property. 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. The mesh is custom cut to size to ensure a smooth border that is hardly visible from the ground and cannot be pushed through by any pests.
