Solar Panel Solutions for Pigeon Removal Get It Done The Right Way
Do you love having solar panels installed on your rooftop? Solar panels are a wonderful way to create clean, pure energy for your home. Not only is this better for the environment, but it’s also great for significantly reducing your power bill. Unfortunately for solar panel lovers, pigeons love rooftop solar panels too! If you are experiencing this problem, pigeon removal is an absolute must.
Pigeons & Solar Panels | NOT A Match Made in Heaven
Why do pigeons love your solar panels? Solar panels offer pigeons and other birds a convenient source of shade and shelter on your roof, not to mention a great view! For birds, the space between the panels and roof is an ideal location to build their nests. As you can probably guess though, while this is a great deal for the pigeons, it has a detrimental impact on your roof and solar panels.
Here are the key reasons why pigeon removal is a necessity:
- Nesting debris & fire hazard: The materials pigeons use to build their nests can amount to a significant mess on your roof. Without intervention, this will build up over time to create a smelly, putrid mess that greatly increases the fire hazard to your house as it dries out over time.
- Droppings: Where there are birds, there are bird droppings. Pigeons create a large amount of excrement and are rudely indiscriminate about where they do it. Excrement can cause corrosive damage your solar panels, as well as interfere with how well they generate electricity.
- Disease: Pigeons are known to carry a multitude of diseases and infections, some of which can also be passed to humans.
- Pests: The whole mess of excrement and nesting debris serves to attract a host of other pests, including rats, cockroaches, ticks and mites.
Pigeon Removal | Get It Done The Right Way
Now the question is, how do I get rid of pigeons the right way? As pigeons are considered pests in Australia, you could call a pest control company to come and attempt to exterminate the birds on your roof. However, this is an ineffective approach due to the fact that birds are difficult to catch, as well as the sheer number of pigeons that can simply replace the dead birds.
Also, despite the fact that pigeons are a pest, not everybody wants to have a pile of dead birds on their conscience! The good news is, your roof and solar panels can be effectively bird proofed with a quality mesh netting around the open areas of your solar panel. This will enable successful pigeon removal by blocking their access to nesting spots under the panels. Mission accomplished!
