Solar Panel Bird Proofing throughout Scotland and Northern England
Eliminate Limited specialise in stopping birds from going under solar panels. We erect a weld mesh guard with weld mesh clips around your solar panels that will prevent pigeons and squirrels from accessing and nesting under your panels. This gives an aesthetic finish while preventing the pest birds or squirrels re-infesting your premises.
Solar Panel Proofing
Eliminate Limited has completed a huge amount of solar panel protection throughout Scotland and recently expanded this service to Northern England.
Stopping pigeons from going under solar panels by using solar panel bird mesh keeps us busy and bookings are only restricted by weather and the availability of climbers. As there is no need for additional access equipment, appointments are flexible which is a huge advantage given the unpredictable nature of UK weather.
Solar panel proofing is in high demand to stop squirrels and pigeons from making a nuisance of themselves. Many customers repeatedly recommend us to new clients, due to the thorough and neat work that Eliminate provides. Solar panel proofing is one of the busiest parts of our proofing team’s work, leading to many call-outs for solar panel proofing throughout Scotland and Northern England.
Whether in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Liverpool or Hamilton, Blackpool or Warrington, the Eliminate bird proofing team is here to help.
All materials that are used on site are specific to the job on hand and made from the best components on the market. We can use wire bird proofing solar panel mesh clips that attach themselves to the perimeter of the panels so no damage is done to the panel itself.
Types of Pigeons that can be controlled
There are five species of Pigeon residing within the UK, although two of them are quite rare.
Feral Pigeon (Columba Livia Domestic) – Feral Pigeons can come with various shades on their coat, ranging from light blue and green, some shades grey and others a darker colour. You can also find dull brick red pigeons and cinnamon brown. You can also spot white pigeons in the UK. They are also known as town pigeons, street pigeons or city pigeons.
Collared Dove (Streptopelia Decaocto) – Found mainly in farmland or woodland, the collared dove is smaller than a normal feral pigeon. It can also be a garden bird whose species spreads across two continents.
Stock Dove (Columba Oenas) – A part of the pigeon family that can sometimes nest in holes in trees and in farm buildings. It can be commonly found around woodland areas and parkland areas.
Turtle Dove (Streptopelia turtur) – The famous member of the Columbidae family of Doves and pigeons is quite rare in the UK, although has been spotted in southern parts of the country and as far north as Wales.
Rock Dove (Columba livia) – These are a more pure breed of feral pigeon that normally live on the coast of North West Scotland and Northern Ireland. They generally nest on cliffs so they do not really pose a threat as a pest, although they can find their way inland to nest on your property.
Eliminate Limited’s bird proofing team are qualified and experienced in this specialised area of pest control. This gives us many options to employ different methods to get the job done as safely as possible. This versatility also means we can be cost-effective, with training at height certification, IPAF and PASMA qualifications our team will determine the best way to access your trouble spots.
Eliminate also have a rope access team for those tricky and hard-to-reach areas.
A Pigeon-proofing solar panel technician will assess the situation upon arrival and determine the most appropriate course of action. We guarantee that all safety precautions will be taken before starting any work being performed by our technicians.
We measure and fit stainless steel mesh to each panel to prevent pigeons, squirrels, and other vermin from gaining access to your outer solar panels.
