Solar Panel Pigeon Protection in Leicester - 10 Year Guarantee
Pigeons nesting under solar panels are an increasing problem, and certainly a very annoying one. As specialists in solar panel bird proofing and full members of the British Pest Control Association (BPCA), we are pleased to be able to offer fast, friendly, efficient and GUARANTEED solar panel pigeon protection service in Leicester and in the surrounding towns and villages.
What the solar panel companies in Leicester don’t let you know is that they are creating an ideal warm, protected and sheltered place for pigeons to nest, exactly where they want to – on your roof!
The necessary gap left between the roof and the solar panels on fitting is the perfect space for the female pigeons to tuck under and raise their young, 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.
Leicester City Council’s on-going commitment to the Home Energy Conservation Act to reduce consumption of non-renewable energy sources across Leicestershire has inevitably resulted in a big rise solar panel companies in Leicester and of course in the number of Leicester residents having 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.

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!
