Solar Panels are a great investment, however there are also many down sides to them. Pigeons and other vermin see them as a perfect nesting place and that can cause serious problems.
Great for pigeons
Solar panels are ideal nesting and roosting places for pigeons. It will keep them warm and sheltered all year around. They also feel safe from predators which makes them the ideal place to bring up their young. Given time, your roof will be the pigeon hub for the entire street
Bad for you
Being woken up at the crack of dawn by cooing and scratching noises, gutters blocked & overflowing with pigeon guano and your garden / car being used as the local bird toilet are common complaints. Bird mites entering the house from nests can also become a problem.
Very Bad for Solar Panels – Pigeon Guano, can also damage the solar panels and components. It can also massively decrease the solar power generated.
Our solutions do not damage the panels and do not invalidate any warranties

From Michael Benton - 5* Review
"Had previous encounters with people trying to sort out the pigeons under the solar, and after them being really poor I was so very pleased with Pest ID, responded quickly to my questions even on a Sunday, arranged a time that was convenient to come and check the solar panels and one the very good price was agreed a time was booked to do the work.
They arrived bang on time and carried out the work they said they would, they were tidy very professional and efficient and I can’t recommend them anymore.
Really nice guys and really pleased with what they’ve done. Thank you Ian very much."
Most solar panel pigeon proofing jobs cost around the same....
It's just how we access the panels that is the key pricing differential. Working at height involves risk assessments that determine which, if any, is the safest way that we can pigeon proof your solar panels.
Using a roof ladder is nearly always used, but getting up to gutter height may involve using our own Easi Dec scaffold access, scaffold towers and on some occasions, we have to draft in a scaffold firm to erect a scaffold for safe access. If this is the case, we're quite happy for you to arrange the scaffold direct as long as it is professionally done and safe for our team to work on.
