How do you pigeon proof a solar panel?

Solar Panel Bird Mesh Installation

Our process of installing solar panel pigeon protection to your roof’s solar system involves using eco-friendly mesh material that will cover every side of your panels. We use clips instead of bolts or screws to prevent your solar system’s warranty from being voided as well. These clips are incredibly study and easily maintained, and can stand the harshest weather that Brisbane can throw at them, including rain, wind and extreme heat.

You can see what this meshing and the clips we use look like below.

Solar Panel Bird Proofing

How do you remove pigeons from under solar panels in Brisbane?

Thankfully, there is no need to harm any pigeons under your solar panels. They will often fly off and leave the roof when our team climb onto the roof. You may not agree about taking a nesting spot away from a bird however, pigeons have plenty of other options for nesting. In fact, nesting beneath your solar panels isn’t the safest option for them. They’re at risk of being prey upon by rats, their nests can cause fires and their young can often pass away from the heat so it’s always best to encourage them to leave.

Here at Solarfix, we’re very much animal people so we won’t harm any wildlife when relocating them.

How much should bird proofing solar panels Brisbane cost?

How much someone in Brisbane should pay for bird proofing solar panels is going to depend on a few things. The size of your system, the layout of the panels and if there has been any damage to the system caused by nesting birds are the key factors we take into consideration.

As these factors are usually different for everyone, we can’t provide an exact price without seeing the panels on your roof. That said, we do provide no obligation quotes to everyone that calls and emails us for an inspection. If you would like to receive a no obligation quote, we recommended speaking to one of our local bird proofing experts by calling on 0497 524 407 today.

Do I need AvePro Bird Netting instead?

No, you shouldn’t use AvePro bird netting on your solar panels. There are a few reasons why you shouldn’t, we’ve listed them below:

  • Material: The major difference between bird netting and a solar panel bird mesh installation is the material used. Mesh is a thick, sturdy plastic whereas netting is thin, knotted, string-like polyethylene.
  • Placement: Bird netting is usually used on large open spaces like over rooftops and under as well, not around the small spacing under a solar panel.
  • Mesh Size: Bird proofing solar panel mesh have very small gaps, mostly for airflow, that range from 10-12mm whereas  AvePro netting is spaced anywhere from 20mm to 50mm. Gaps this large will still allow birds like pigeons, crows, sparrows, cockatoos as well as rodents like mice, possums and rats from accessing under your panels. Larger gaps will also allow leaves and branches to pass through increase the chance of them getting stuck on the inside and causing fire hazards.

Should I install my own solar panel bird proofing mesh I bought at Bunnings?

Absolutely not. We do not recommend installing a DIY solar panel bird proofing mesh kit you bought at Bunnings or a hardware store for a number of reasons.

  1. Dangerous: Working on your roof without the proper safety precautions could lead to serious injury or worse.
  2. Expensive: If you damage your solar panel glass, your warranty won’t cover it’s repair or replacement.
  3. Illegal: By law you need a solar electrician to do any work on your solar system.

Brisbane Pigeon proofing solar panels near me

Did you know that 1 in 5 Brisbane homes with solar power have a problem with pigeons nesting under their panels? Because pigeons prefer to nest in high locations where they can keep a watchful eye on water and food sources, your solar panel provides the perfect location for them to live and breed. A solar panel also offers ample protection from predators for pigeon parents as their babies tend to stay in their nests far longer than most other birds.

Although you might notice other birds making a home under your rooftop solar panels, pigeons tend to be more comfortable sharing their space with humans than other species which makes them hard to remove. The good news is that our pigeon proofing solar panels Brisbane service works for all birds (including possums and rodents) so you won’t have to worry about any feathery friends nesting on your roof ever again.

Solar panel bird mesh installation

Solar panel bird mesh installation involves the use of a protective mesh material placed over solar panels to prevent birds from coming into direct contact with the panels. The mesh is typically made of durable and weather-resistant plastic and is attached to the panels using specialised hooks. This bird protection method has proven to be highly effective in preventing bird-related damage to the electrical wiring, panels, and other components of a solar panel system.

Solarfix, as a leading Brisbane bird-proofing company, utilises the latest techniques and technology to provide top-quality solar panel bird mesh installations that are customised to meet the specific needs of each customer. Our team of experts has years of experience in the field, ensuring that your panels are protected from bird damage. With Solarfix, you can be confident that you are getting the best protection available, backed by our commitment to customer satisfaction. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and learn how we can help protect your solar panels from bird damage.

Cost of pigeon proofing solar panels in Brisbane

The cost of pigeon proofing your solar panels can vary greatly depending on a number of factors. On average, a pigeon proofing job could cost between $200 to $1500, but it’s important to note that this is just a rough estimate. The exact cost of your pigeon proofing project will depend on several key factors.

  • First, the number of solar panels in your system will play a significant role in determining the cost of pigeon proofing. The more panels you have, the more material and labor will be required, which can drive up the cost.
  • Another important factor to consider is the angle of your roof. The steeper your roof, the more challenging it may be to install the pigeon proofing mesh, which can increase the cost of the project.
  • The height of your roof is another factor that can impact the cost of pigeon proofing. If your roof is very high, special equipment may be required to safely reach and install the mesh, which can increase the cost.
  • Finally, the presence of birds and nests on your roof may require removal before the pigeon proofing mesh can be installed. This removal process can add additional labor and materials costs to your project.

Why you need solar panel pigeon protection in Brisbane

Having solar installed can be an expensive additional to your home however, finding out that pigeons are nesting underneath your solar panels could end up costing you even more. As pretty as they might seem, these birds can cause a range of health issues for your family and end up putting your brand new solar panels at risk too. It is important to understand what these risks are and how proofing your solar panels will help.

Pigeons have diseases

The Common Pigeon is well known as a carrier for diseases and pests, including mites and lice that could make their way into your family’s home. However, what they carry to your home isn’t as bad as what is in the droppings they leave on your roof and surrounding areas. Their droppings contain potentially deadly viruses like E.Coli and Salmonella which could result in severe health consequences for your family members. Even though the majority of their droppings are on your roof, they can dry out in the sun and heat then turn to a fine powder that can be carried by the wind into your backyard and inside your home just as quickly.

Pigeon Proofing Brisbane

Protecting your family from the harmful diseases that pigeons carry is a concern that is often overlooked or misunderstood by a lot of our Brisbane customers. By installing pigeon proofing roof mesh, you will keep your home and family safe, as well as increasing the longevity of your solar power system.

If you haven’t installed solar power yet, we recommended speaking with a Solarfix solar panel pest control expert on the best installation strategy. Call our friendly team on 0497 524 407, today.

Pigeons are very noisy

If you enjoy a sleep in on the weekends or work from home, the sounds of pigeons nesting under your solar panels are going to send you crazy. Pigeons are incredibly noisy birds and when they have babies, their young are even louder. Pigeons will often make sounds at all hours of the day as well, including at night.

Even if you’re okay with pigeons making noises on your roof, it’s important to take your neighbours into consideration.

Bird poop can damage solar panels

That’s right. Pigeon poop can affect your solar panels in more than one way. Firstly, it is far more corrosive than most other birds poop. As it builds up on your expensive solar panels, it can corrode the glass, wiring and other hardware leading to a compromise in efficiency. Secondly, it can cover your panels so much so that they struggle to absorb any sunlight at all. This will mean you power bills will be a lot more than usual until you address the bird issue on your roof.

Free solar panel clean

Here at Solarfix, we provide a free solar panel clean with every Brisbane bird proofing installation to get rid of any poop or debris.

Bird nests cause water flooding

Brisbane’s weather is fast and heavy, especially during the summer months when storms occur a few times a week. When you have birds nesting under your solar panels, their nests can create blockages that causes rainwater to build up and leak inside your solar system. If their nests are washed down your roof, they’ll end up in your gutters which could lead to more costly issues in the long run like rusting and water leaking into your ceilings.

Bird Proofing Brisbane

By implementing Solarfix’s bird proofing control mesh, you’re not just preventing the costly long-term effects that birds, and other roof dwelling animals, can create but you’re extending the lifetime of your solar panel system.

Pigeon nests attract rats

Unfortunately, pigeons and their eggs are also preyed upon by opportunistic animals like rodents and rats. So when you have multiple birds roosting under solar panels, you also run the risk of attracting rats and other pests that could call your house their home.
