Getting Rid of Pigeons under Solar Panels in Ealing

Pigeon Proofing Solar Panels in Ealing

The third largest borough in Greater London is the London borough of Ealing which is part of Outer London. The borough lies to the west and borders the other boroughs of Harrow, Hillingdon, Hammersmith and Fulham, Brent and Hounslow.


Ealing takes its name from the district of Ealing which is thought to have been occupied for over 7000 years with Iron Age pots being discovered near Horsenden Hill. However, Ealing is not the only district in the borough which has a long history, in Acton, near Bollo Lane, there have been finds of Palaeolithic, Neolithic and Bronze Age burial sites.


The borough is well known for its diverse community with its large Irish, Polish and South Asian populations. This diversity is reflected in the architecture of borough, for example, in Southall is Gurdwara Sri Guru Singh Sabha, one of the largest Sikh Temples in the UK.


Ealing also has an annual summer festival which is quite popular, especially locally. One of the main parts is the Ealing Jazz Festival which is held in Walpole Park. No wonder all the pigeons are heading to Ealing, they’re hoping to hear some of the world class jazz live.

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 (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.

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.
