Are pigeons roosting and nesting beneath your solar panels? 

Get rid of pigeons

Getting rid of pigeon under solar panels 

We fully understand what a nuisance pigeons are when roosting and nesting under your solar panels, we will remove your pigeon problem and prevent the early morning wake up calls. 
 
By installing a barrier of mesh around the perimeter of the solar array we prevent the pigeons from entering, without the shelter of the solar panels the pigeons will have no choice but to leave your roof in search of a new area to roost. We source the highest quality materials from Europe where the steel is of a higher grade than the cheaper Chinese steel being sold in the UK, all the parts of our proofing system have been Hot-Dip Galvanised to prevent the steel from corroding giving longevity to your install.

Are Jackdaws going under your solar panels?

Getting rid of Jackdaws  

Although not as common as pigeons nesting under solar panels, jackdaws due to their nesting habits actually present a bigger problem for your solar array. Jackdaws will fill the underside of the panels up with twigs, sticks and nest lining material, the effects can be catastrophic. 
The nesting materials create hot spots on the panels causing the cells to overheat and potentially burn out, not only does this damage the system, it also reduces the efficiency of the panel.

Do you have Squirrels under your solar panels? 

Squirrel under solar panels

Getting rid of Squirrels from under solar panels 

A squirrel’s nest (known as a drey) under solar panels can be disastrous for the wiring. To prevent their incisors over growing, squirrels habitually gnaw. And if they’re squatting beneath your panels, they will quite happily gnaw their way through the array’s components. It’s not been uncommon for us to find bite marks on plastic end caps for example. 
Over the years, we’ve attended a lot of properties where the squirrels have chewed through the electrical cables beneath the arrays causing the panels to stop generating electricity and leaving the owner with a costly repair bill. 
Protect your property by installing our squirrel mesh around the array. It will not only keep them out but will also prevent costly repair bills.

The ApcUK Solar Panel Proofing Process 

 
Gutters: 
Step 1: Bird droppings and debris are first disinfected and placed into two doubled up polythene heavy duty bags. 
Step 2: The bags are sealed, removed and disposed of. 
Step 3: The gutter is thoroughly cleaned. 
 
Under Solar Panels: 
Pigeons, jackdaws and squirrels together with their nests or dreys are removed. 
 
Proofing to stop pigeons going under the array: 
ApcUK have developed a specific solar panel bird and squirrel exclusion system. Here’s how it works: 
Step 1: Galvanised steel clips are installed onto every outer panel within the array. 
Step 2: Galvanised welded wire mesh is then cut on site to the correct height. 
Step 3: Galvanised steel restraints are used to attach the mesh to the clips creating a physical barrier. 
 
Once our system has been installed the barrier 100% prevents the pigeons, jackdaws or squirrels going back under the panels. 

Solar panel maintenance and servicing 

All our bird and squirrel proofing systems can be removed for any maintenance or servicing that may be required to your solar array. 
It is important that any proofing works can be easily removed and replaced by your solar maintenace company if needed.

Testimonial 
"No cooing, no pecking, no scrabbling on the roof in the morning and NO wet pigeon mess to greet us as we step out the front door! Having had solar panels fitted to our roof, one thing we hadn't’t expected was an influx of pigeons. The infestation was so bad, it was driving my wife and I crazy. Daniel and the crew, thank you for sorting the problem for us. Every day that I drive up to our house and see the roof totally clear of pigeons, I say a silent thank you to you. If I come across anyone in the same predicament, I’ll point them in your direction. Great job."
