Burnley Pigeon Proofing Solar Panels

Pigeon Proofing Solar Panels in Burnley - 10 Year Guarantee

Although Burnley’s traditional manufacturing base has waned somewhat, new technology has moved in and indeed the town of some 173,000 people is now a key supplier to the UK’s aerospace industry.  Indeed in 2013 Burnley was named as the most enterprising place in Britain. It has retained strong links with Liverpool and Manchester and other nearby towns and boasts a direct rail link to Manchester’s Victoria Station.

The solar power mantle has also been firmly grasped, as illustrated in 2018 when Burnley brewer Moorhouses installed over 150 solar panels with a view to brewing some one million pints a year on solar power alone. Many householders have also had solar power installed, particularly before the tariffs were changed. Of course what the solar panel companies in Burnley fail to tell you when then are putting those panels on your roof, is that they are creating a perfect environment for female pigeons to nest and bring up their young. 

That gap between your roof and the solar panels on fitting is the perfect space for the female pigeons to tuck under, while the male birds keep watch on other parts of the roof. That unwelcome cocktail not only creates a lot of noise and a nuisance, it’s also likely to result in a build-up of messy and potentially harmful pigeon guano and can even damage the performance of your panels.

Thankfully her are British Bird Control we can help people with pigeons under solar panels. We offer a fast, efficient, long lasting and fully guaranteed solar panel pigeon protection service in Burnley and the surrounding towns. We use a strong, galvanised steel mesh that comes in panels not roll for our solar panel pigeon proofing service, allowing us to produce a tight, neat finish to the edge of the panels that looks good and rids you of that pigeon problem for good.

Are pigeons affecting the performance of my solar panels?

If you have birds getting under solar panels and believe this could be adversely affecting the performance of the panels and the very reason you got them in the first place, please let us know during the telephone consultation.

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!
