Solar Panel Pigeon Protection in Luton - 10 Year Guarantee
In Luton the local council has been looking to lead the way in energy conservation and renewable energy use by setting out a clear strategy for the reduction in carbon emissions in its own public buildings, including schools, community centres and civic buildings.
To help drive the wheels they have hooked up with both the Luton Climate Change Group, and the Sustainability board, to come up with a strategy in which they hope to reduce by an overall 60%. Underpinning the extra expenditure involved in introducing and seeing through Luton’s carbon reduction programme is a long term aim of also dramatically reducing costs. Luton’s University is a flagship, generating a large amount of renewable energy from solar power installations on top of their buildings.
One of the angles is the introduction of innovative solar powered street bollards, and Luton and indeed Bedfordshire as a whole is an area where more and more householders are following suit and introducing solar panels to help power their homes, and, in the long run, save money.
However, when you fit solar panels on your roof, you are also creating a pigeon attractor, because under the panels is just about the perfect high, warm, sheltered and safe place for female pigeons to raise their brood, while the male partners hand around nearby creating a great deal of mess and noise and generally disturbing the neighbourhood peace! One pigeon can produce about 25lb of guano a year along, and it’s corrosive, and carries some very nasty diseases too which can be quite easily transmitted to humans. Pigeons nest all year round in the UK, and the females will usually produce three or four broods a year.
The good news is that here at British Bird Control we can help through our Luton solar panel pigeon proofing service. We know just how stop the pigeons getting underneath solar panels, so that they will move on, long term. And we offer a gilt-edged TEN-YEAR GUARANTEE with all our solar panel pigeon protection work in Luton and Bedfordshire.

Yes, all our teams carry specialist solar panel and roof tile cleaning kits with all the specialist equipment, cleaning fluids and biocides required to provide the best way to clean solar panels roof tiles, gutters and walls of pigeon guano safely and without any damage.
This not only cleans but is also a powerful biocide agent, which kills the bacteria, viruses and fungi associated with pigeon guano. This is not priced is as part of the solar panel proofing work, but can be quoted once we arrive at the job and evaluate what’s involved.
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!
