Solar Panel Bird Removal

It is a delight to hear birds sing or soar high in the skies. It is a pleasant sight to greet the birds in parks or walking trails. However, it can get extremely annoying when the same birds begin invading your roof and expensive solar panels. The damages bird poop, bird nesting and roosting can do to solar panels is astronomical. Not to mention the chewing and damages that can happen as the result of squirrels. Solar panel protection and bird removal is the key to the longevity and functionality of your solar panels. Protect your investment with bird control for your solar panels.


If you are searching for ways to control bird's nesting behavior around your solar panels, or keep pigeons away, our team of professional bird removal specialists can help control the birds around your home using several bird control methods designed specifically for rooftop solar panels. 


Bird Deterrents for Solar Panels


Rooftop solar panels create an ideal environment for pigeons and other pest birds to nest and roost. The panels provide shade from the hot sun, security from predators, and an easy in-and-out vantage point for birds. Season after season, the same birds will retturn to this spot to roost and nest -unless you find ways to keep them out.

Since most solar panels are usually just 8″ off the roof deck, removing nests and droppings can be a challenge. The best way to address this problem is to install a solar panel pigeon barrier, when solar panels are first installed, or before pest birds arrive. Types of solar panel bird deterrents we install include:


     Wire Mesh Panels


The wire mesh panels create a physical barrier to keep birds from accessing and nesting in the area beneath solar arrays. They can  be removed for repiars and cleaning. The damages caused by pest birds present serious problems for homes. Installing wire mesh around your solar panels helps avoid costly damages.


     Bird-Shock® Flex-Track®


At only one-quarter of an inch high, and available in five different colors, Flex-Track is hard to see close-up, and invisible from a distance. It is not seen looking up from the ground. Great for challenging rooftops, he intermittent shock is memorable, but does not hurt the birds; it simply teaches them to stay away, long-term. Flexible and Adaptable: this low-profile electrified track conforms to any architectural configuration. Flex-Track curves up and down, and side to side for easy install on rooflines.


     Pigeon Spikes


Ideal for keeping birds off virtually any structural surface, bird spikes come in 1, 3, 5 and 8-inch splay widths to provide increasingly wider areas of protection.

The spikes are made up of metal that is well-protected from UV radiation. Another interesting fact about these spikes is, they are not affected by extreme weather.

Pigeon Nests Under Solar Panels

Unfortunately, solar panels are the perfect place for pigeons to make their nests. It's up to you to make sure they aren't able to get underneath and make a home and cause damage. Our experts can help bird proof your solar panesls to prevent roosting, nesting and pigeon dropping damage.
