Cardiff Solar Panel Pigeon Proofing

Solar Panel Pigeon Protection in Cardiff - Ten-Year Guarantee

Cardiff Council has stated through its Carbon Lite Action Plan that it is committed to reducing its dependency on non-renewable energy resources through its own work by over 50%, and also to encourage residents and business in the Cardiff area to implement the same ethos of low carbon emissions where possible.

As a result, solar panels have been springing up on roofs all over the region, and the pigeons in the area have been quick to take advantage.
What the solar panel companies in Cardiff omit to mention when they sell you their solar panels is that in fitting them, they are manufacturing an almost custom-designed nesting area for pigeons in particular.

The area between the roof tiles and panels is the perfect, safe, warm and sheltered space for the females to tuck in, build a nest and raise their young, while the males keep watch somewhere else on your roof. Between the two of them they create an unwelcome mess, noise and can damage the performance of your panels.

If you have pigeons under solar panels, as many people do, the good news is that here at British Bird Control we can help. We are full British Pest Control Association (BPCA) members and offer fast, friendly, efficient solar panel pigeon protection service in Manchester and the surrounding towns and villages.

All our solar panel pigeon protection work comes with a gilt-edged TEN YEAR GUARANTEE.

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!
