Solar Panel Pigeon Proofing London
Solar panel pigeon and bird proofing services London
Solar panels are proving to be very popular nesting sites for pigeons. The debris that they accumulate from nesting, droppings, and pecking at wiring has become a growing problem for solar panel owners.
At Project Multi Pest we specialise in pigeon proofing solar panels across the London area. Using unique techniques we can prevent pest birds from roosting and fouling on your solar panels, at a highly competitive price.
If your solar panels are suffering due to pigeons nesting below them then please contact us.
Solar panels make a perfect bolt hole for pest birds like pigeons
Pigeons have always been a popular sight in London, and are as iconic as black cabs, busses and even Big Ben. They first started visiting the city in the 1800s when feed sellers would encourage them to flock to the Capital by flogging their bags of seeds in Trafalgar Square.
But these birds are pests who prefer to live and build nests alongside buildings rather than in trees and shrubs – making the underside of your rooftop solar panelling the perfect place to roost.
Solar panels make for perfect pigeon bolt holes. These feathered pests can nestle right behind the panels and be protected from all kinds of weather. Shaded in the summer, warm in the winter, and protected from potential predators come day and night – a pigeon couldn’t ask for more when it comes to picking a home.

Solar panel damage and destruction caused by pigeons
Not only do these pest birds carry diseases, but their excrement can be seriously damaging to the structure of your property and can make your solar panels run much less efficiently.
If the surface of your solar panels is covered in pigeon droppings, then they won’t be able to drink in as much sunshine. This means that they can’t store as much power and you won’t have as much left to sell back to the grid. So not only are your pigeon guests stealing your sunlight harnessing capability, but they are also costing you money over time.
Left to their own devices, their faeces and nesting materials can soon build up and start to corrode your solar panels, eating away at your roof tiles, attracting other rodents and causing interior damage to the ceilings below.
And if that doesn’t sound destructive enough, then there is also the risk of bird mites entering your property and encouraging secondary pest infestations such as moths.
As pigeons are habitual, once they have made themselves at home on your roof, they will spend many seasons nesting under your solar panels. So don’t delay, if you want to solar panel pigeon proof your roof, call Project Multi Pest today.
Residential & Commercial Solar Panel Pigeon Control
Solar panelling is a fantastic way for people to decrease their energy bills, and reduce their carbon footprint. They are one of the best investments you can make, not only for reducing your own outgoings but also for selling excess electricity back to the grid.
But, an unwelcome stay from some nuisance birds, will not only reduce the running efficiency of your solar panels but can cause higher maintenance costs over time.
Luckily, at Project Multi Pest we have a simple yet effective solution for residential and commercial customers in the London area, to stop problem pigeons and other rodents from nesting under your solar panels.
We have developed a long-lasting, guaranteed solar panel pigeon proofing system. Using a discreet, yet sturdy, thin galvanised steel mesh we will stop nuisance birds from getting under your solar panel arrays.
Our system is implemented either through clips or by carefully drilling, allowing the mesh to fit neatly over the entire panel and preventing birds from accessing the safe space underneath.
How Solar Panel Proofing Works
At Project Multi Pest we carry out a full risk assessment of the site to understand how best to access your roof and in certain circumstances, will use specialist systems such as scaffolding or ladders to assist us.
Thanks to our team of experts and established fail-safe methods, we are able to access hard to reach roofs where solar panels are usually installed, provide them with a thorough clean, eradicate any existing infestations and protect them for many years to come.
If you have fallen victim to a solar panel preying gang of pigeons, then it is important that you get them thoroughly cleaned, prior to attaching the mesh. We will do the dirty work on your behalf, getting your panels back up to the best speed, and removing all traces of guano, feathers and debris.
Our experience in the field of pigeon solar panel proofing means that we can obtain equipment from industry-leading suppliers, which offer only the finest quality materials. Our pigeon proofing solar panelling is made from galvanised steel and has tiny holes of around 10-15mm. This makes the mesh barely visible from the ground up, yet can prevent the smallest pests from breaking through. This high-spec proofing system also provides plenty of airflow and ventilation for your solar panels.
We do not need to remove any solar panels in the process, and once we have installed the panel pigeon proofing you can rest assured, knowing that your investment is firmly protected.
