Pigeon Proofing Solar Panels in Birmingham - 10 Year Guarantee
If you have a problem with pigeons under solar panels, as many people do, we can help. We are full British Pest Control Association (BPCA) members and offer fast, friendly, efficient and GUARANTEED solar panel pigeon proofing service in Birmingham and the surrounding towns and villages.
What the solar panel companies in Birmingham fail to tell you when they are fitting your solar panels, is that they are creating the perfect safe, warm, protected and sheltered place for pigeons to nest, exactly where they want to – on your roof!
The gap left between the roof tiles and the solar panels is the perfect space for the female pigeons to create a nest and raise young, while the male birds keep watch on other parts of the roof, both of them creating a nuisance, a mess and potentially damaging the performance of your panels.
In Birmingham, the council’s Sustainable Energy Action Plan (SEAP) and its stated policy to try to cut CO2 emissions by 60% for the foreseeable future has led to a surge in the number of Birmingham residents fitting solar panels on their homes. And it doesn’t take long for pigeons in particular to take advantage.
The good news is that here at British Bird Control we can help, and we offer a gilt-edged TEN-YEAR GUARANTEE with all our solar panel pigeon protection work anywhere in Birmingham.

We have teams that can evaluate and fix solar panel performance on the spot, but if this is the case we may need to make a separate visit before the solar panel proofing takes place to check whether there is a short circuit, broken solar panel inverter, or other electrical issue which would make it dangerous to be on the roof until fixed. Please also let us know if you think there are dead adult pigeons under solar panels when we talk on the phone – they may have been electrocuted!
