London Solar Panel Pigeon Proofing

Solar Panel Pigeon Protection in London - Ten-Year Guarantee

The surge in the number of homes looking to save money on energy bills through the fitting of solar panels has led to an unwelcome associated problem – that of pigeons taking up residence under solar panels nesting and raising young. If you are one of the many people who has a problem with pigeons under solar panels, we can help. As specialists in bird proofing work and solar panel pigeon protection, at British Bird Control we are full British Pest Control Association (BPCA) members and as such are able to offer a GUARANTEED solar panel pigeon protection service in London and the surrounding London boroughs inside and outside the M25 belt.

What the solar panel companies in London don’t reveal, is that as they fit the solar panels 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 panels is the perfect space for the female pigeons to build a nest and raise young, while the male birds hang around nearby on other parts of the roof to keep watch. Together they create unwanted noise and a mess a mess of unwelcome and toxic pigeon guano, and can potentially damage the performance of your panels.

The combined commitment of London city councils to reduce the dependency on non-renewable energy resources has seen more and more residents looking for solar panel companies in London. And once solar panels are fitted, 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!
