Solar Panel Pigeon Proofing

Updated: Aug 14, 2023

Do you have birds nesting under your solar panels? We can help! Here at Betapest Midlands we offer an effective solution to the problem of pigeons and gulls nesting in the gap between your roof and solar panels.

Why Rooftop Solar Panels Need Protecting From Birds?

Solar panels are proving to be very popular nesting sites for pigeons. The debris that they accumulate from nesting and droppings have become a growing problem for solar panel owners. Not only do these pest birds carry diseases, but their excrement can be seriously damaging to the structure of your property and can make your solar panels run much less efficiently.

Effective Solar Panel Proofing System

We use the mesh system attached by UV resistant clips which we believe to be the most effective method to pigeon proof solar panels. These are specifically designed solar panel proofing systems that are manufactured for solar panel fitment. Strips of the mesh are fastened under the lip of each side of the solar panels using clips. There is no need for drilling, screwing or gluing into your roof and correctly-installed, the mesh will not compromise the manufacturer’s warranty.

Pricing & Quotations

You can have total piece of mind that once our systems are installed you will have no further problems with pigeons on your solar panels.The cost of a solar panel protection install is dependant on the size of the system in place and the access equipment required for the install. We offer a free site survey in Birmingham, Solihull, Sutton Coldfield, Tamworth or throughout the West Midlands.
