New Installation Video: How to Install the Solar Panel Deterrent

Posted on September 15, 2016 by Alex Kecskes in Bird Deterrents

Rooftop solar panels are saving property owners considerable money in energy costs. The panels convert sunlight directly into electricity. And they are becoming increasingly efficient over the years. One threat to this efficiency is pest birds and rooftop critters that are attracted to the lofty shelter these panels provide.

Fortunately, the bird control pros at Bird B Gone have developed a solution to this problem. It’s called the Solar Panel Bird Deterrent. It consists of a specially designed mesh and clips that block out birds and critters from getting underneath the panels.

To speed and simplify the installation of its Solar Panel Bird Deterrent, Bird B Gone has also created an informative video. It provides step-by-step instructions on how to properly install the mesh and clips. The video shows how to measure solar panels to estimate the amount of material needed, as well as the number of people required for the job. How to cut and align the protective mesh is also addressed, as is how to deal with overlapping panels, corners and obstructions. The video even shows how to install the bird deterrent mesh on Spanish tile roofs. It stresses the importance of cleaning and disinfecting the site under and around the solar panels. This is important, as birds and critters are often attracted to the scent of nesting materials and droppings. The video also underscores the need to use personal protective equipment (PPE) when removing this debris to prevent injury or infection.
