Frequently Asked Questions

FAQs for solar panel bird proofing

Do I need to pigeon proof my solar panels?

The simple answer is yes. Pigeon proofing your solar panels will save you a fortune on panel cleaning costs in the future. Having your solar panels protected from bird and other pests will also drastically reduce the need for repairs and extensive maintenance work as the proofing mesh will stop leaves and debris from building beneath.

If you have more questions about why your solar panels might need pigeon proofing installed, you can speak to our local and friendly team by calling us on 0497 524 407.

How do you pigeon proof a solar panel?

We use an eco-friendly mesh material that covers every side of your panel, like in the image below. We don’t use screws or bolts because that would void your warranty. Instead we use safe, sturdy and easily maintained clips that hold the mesh in place regardless if its raining, windy or a typical hot summer’s day.

Solar Panel Bird Proofing

How do you remove pigeons from under solar panels?

Often once our team is on the roof, the pigeons will fly away which gives us the best opportunity to safely remove their nests. Taking a nesting spot away from a bird may not be your cup of tea. However, we’re here to let you know that the birds have plenty of other options for nesting. In fact, nesting beneath your solar panels isn’t the safest option for them, and it’s best to encourage them to leave.

Many people see pigeons as pests, at the end of the day they are living creatures and here at Solarfix, we don’t want to hurt them.

How much does bird proofing solar panels cost?

The cost of bird proofing your solar panels depends on the size of the system installed on your roof, it’s layout and if there is any damage from nesting birds.

Although we can’t provide an exact price without seeing the panels on your roof, we do offer no obligation quotes so there is no pressure to go with us. To receive a no obligation quote, we recommended speaking to one of our local bird proofing experts by calling us on 0497 524 407.

Pigeon proofing solar panels near me

Did you know that 1 in 5 Queensland homes with solar power have a pigeon problem? Solar panel can attract pigeons as they prefer to nest in high areas where they can keep an eye on food and water sources at all times. Because their babies stay in the nest longer than most bird species, they also require ample protection. That’s why the space beneath your rooftop solar panels makes a perfect nesting place for pigeons and their families.

Other birds may also make a home under your solar panels. However, pigeons tend to be more comfortable sharing their space with humans than other species. The good news is that our pigeon proofing methods below work for all birds so you won’t have to worry about any feathery friends nesting on your roof.

Why you need solar panel pigeon protection

Installing solar is an expensive investment however, pigeons nesting beneath your solar panels could end up costing you even more. These bird can cause a range of issues for your solar panels and potential health risks for your family.

Diseases and pests

Pigeons are known for carrying diseases and pests. When they start to nest on your roof and under your solar panels, you’re welcome these mites and lice into your family home. Their droppings also contain viruses like E.Coli and Salmonella which could result in deadly consequences for you family members. You may think that because the droppings are on the roof, they won’t harm you but that’s not necessarily the case. Within in a few hours their droppings can dry, crumble and become airborne with a draft right into your home.


Pigeons are incredibly noisy birds and when they have babies, their young are even louder. This could become irritating to not just your family but to your neighbours as well. Pigeons will often make sounds at all hours of the day, including at night.

Damage to solar panels

Pigeon poop is more corrosive that most other birds’. As it builds up on your expensive solar panels, it can corrode the glass, wiring and other hardware leading to a compromise in efficiency.

Water flooding

When your solar panels become the nesting grounds for multiple birds, you run the risk of their nests causing water damage to your system. This happens when their nesting materials accumulate under your panels and create blockages that prevent rain water from reaching the gutters on your roof. Often their nests can also cause blockages in your gutters after a storm and the flow on effect continues.

Attracting rats

Roosting pigeons under solar panels can also attract rats and rodents because the birds’ nests provide a constant and easy food source for rats to prey upon.
