Why is bird proofing important for solar panels?
Birds have a crafty way of getting into all kinds of spaces, and underneath your solar panels is no exception.
- Pigeon droppings are corrosive, so if they get on top of and underneath your solar panels, they can slowly deteriorate your panels and any essential wires, affecting their performance.
- They could be infected with bird mites; these mites can then enter your home anywhere, and are expensive to get rid of.
- Birds, especially pigeons, when they start to nest can be very loud, so you’ll have a lot of noise disturbance.
Pigeon proofing solar panels help to put a stop to these issues and help each solar panel perform at its best.
How does bird proofing work?
Bird proofing stops pigeons and other birds from getting underneath the gap between your panels and your roof.
Normally a wire mesh or fencing is placed to block the gap, making sure no nests can be made, and no animals can rest there.
Can I do it myself?
Yes, you can – however, if you’re not 100% sure about what you’re doing you could end up damaging your solar panel further.
Our professionals have all of the tips and tricks they need to get the proofing work done quickly and efficiently on your solar panels, so you don’t have to worry.
Cost of hiring a pest control team
Pest control services differ depending on what kind of problems you have, and the services you need to fix them.
The cost depends on several answers to the questions below:
Type of pest – Is there a pigeon presence, or another type of pest?
Size – What is your infestation size? How many pests have invaded your home?
Type of treatment – Solar panel pigeon proofing is just one type of treatment you can get for your home.
How big is your property – What surface area is the infestation residing on?
How many times will the treatment be required? Animals can squeeze in anywhere, so some areas of your home may need to be treated more than once to make sure they’re gone for good.
No matter what services you need, you’ll always be able to get reliable advice on what to do next from us and how much it will cost.
