The best way to stop pigeons from nesting under your solar panels is to install Solar Panel Mesh and Clips to guard the undersides of the panels. This mesh is run along the perimeters of the solar array too stop birds and rodents from accessing the warm protected underside. Once the mesh is run along the perimeters, Bird B Gone Solar Clips are used to hold the mesh in place without damaging the panel frames.
Your solar panels provide a large, sheltered area for birds to nest. The panels themselves shelter birds from harsh weather conditions and predatory threats. They also act as a heat source for nesting birds. Birds are attracted to their pheromones, which can be found in their droppings and nesting debris. Cleaning and sanitizing the infested areas will help reduce the chances of birds returning to nest again.
Note: It is important to clean away nesting materials and droppings thoroughly before installation of products.
The solar panels mounted on your rooftop are the first areas pigeons look to nest. For this reason, installing effective and durable solar panel bird control is extremely important.
A high quality coated steel mesh is recommended for these areas to prevent rusting and corrosion to occur. Avoid using chicken wire and other unprotected steel panels, as these screens will quickly rust and begin to damage your solar investment.

You might be wonder why the birds are sticking around the area after installing solar panel mesh. This is a common occurrence when birds have nested previously. As we mentioned earlier, birds are attracted to their pheromones and have instincts to remain in the area. For these birds, experts recommend installing Bird Control products for Rooftops, such as bird spikes. Spikes can be installed on to the peak where bird are perching. This will make it more difficult for pigeons to sit near the panels.
Introducing a trapping program will significantly reduce the population of birds who remain in the area. This is a method commonly used by pest control and bird control professionals to eliminate birds who have homing instincts to remain near the property.
