Why should I use a pest control company over a solar panel company?
Solar panel companies will ensure that your solar panels are installed and function correctly. They may even be able to install a bird-proofing solution for you.
However, if you’ve already got problems with pigeons or other birds, simply installing a solution isn’t enough. You may need to have the area cleaned and disinfected beforehand – and you’ll want to choose the right solution for your needs.
That’s why you should trust pest control experts like Pest Stop Boys. We have a huge amount of experience in solar panel pigeon proofing – and the industry accreditations to prove it.
Can you DIY solar panel bird proofing?
In theory, yes you can. However, there are multiple issues with doing so. Accessing your roof space can be dangerous, especially without the right safety equipment. Cleaning and disinfecting your solar panels can be a laborious task as well as a health hazard.
Finally, both the cleaning and the solar panel pigeon proofing processes need to be carried out carefully to avoid causing any damage and risking invalidating your solar panel warranty.
That’s why we always recommend trusted, experienced professionals – who are fully insured and industry-accredited.
Will solar panels be cleaned when the bird proofing work commences?
Yes, if needed to, they will – as much as we can without compromising the performance of your solar panels.
Both the surface of your solar panels and the underside may well be covered in guano as well as nest materials: we will remove as much of this as we can, as well as treating the area to remove any mites and other parasites that the birds may have brought with them.
Do you provide free quotes?
Indeed we do. When you contact us we’ll ask if it’s possible for you to send us photos of the area so we can assess the size, complexity and accessibility of the project.
With solar panel bird proofing jobs, we may also arrange an appointment to come and see the area for ourselves so we can provide you with the most accurate quote possible.
How much does it cost to bird-proof solar panels?
Our solar panel pigeon proofing service depends on a number of factors, including the size of your solar panel installation, the number of access points, the size of any existing bird colony and the types of bird-proofing method that are best for your property.
We aim to do all of our work from ladders, as opposed to scaffolding, which allows us to charge a competitive price.
We give tailored solar panel bird proofing quotes for each and every customer so you’re completely clear about what our service involves. What we do promise, though, is that our prices are very competitive – as you’ll see from our glowing Checkatrade reviews.
Will pigeons persist on my property once the work is complete?
Our solar panel bird proofing service is designed not only to eradicate current pests from your solar panels, but to keep them away for good. Once we’ve completed the work, you should find that your solar panels remain bird-free.
Of course, this doesn’t mean that you won’t see any birds on your premises at all. If bird problems persist, you may find that even though your solar panels are protected, they still have access to your roof.
If this happens, we have a range of bird-proofing solutions that can protect your roof space as well as the solar panels themselves.
