Here at Essex and Suffolk Pest Solutions we offer a number of different services, one of those being bird prevention & control and solar panel proofing. We get a lot of calls regarding bird proofing of solar panels. Often pigeons nest underneath solar panels and with that they bring mess with their guano, noise and potential damage to property. In the last two weeks alone we have travelled to Mildenhall, Shotley and Clacton to remove pigeons from underneath solar panels and stop them coming back. Pigeon guano can be really damaging to property if left not to mention very unsightly and smelly and a major hazard to human health. It can also act as a harbourage for a number of different insects which could in turn cause a whole load of new problems!
We offer a service whereby we put wire mesh around the edges of the solar panels making it impossible for any birds to get underneath and cause a nuisance. To secure the wire mesh, we use specialist solar panel clips. If required, we can also put spikes in place to stop birds sitting on the ridge or edge of the building and/or netting so they can’t land in areas you don’t want them to. If you have had an ongoing problem and have a lot of guano, we can come and do a cleaning service as well using biocide to remove any traces.
We travel all over Essex and Suffolk covering Stowmarket, Ipswich, Colchester and all of the surrounding towns and villages. No where is out of bounds!
Below are some photos of a recent birdproofing job we did on a residential property in Shotley, Suffolk. As you can see we have successfully moved the pigeons on and fitted wire mesh all the way around the solar panels. The customer was really happy with our work and went on to say; “Looks great thanks. Night and mornings are so quiet it’s fantastic, they are slowly moving and no mess now which is great.”
