Specialist Bird Control


Solar panels are being installed all over the country, but due to their ability to provide a perfect nesting site for feral pigeons, they are bringing problems to households in the North West and Greater Manchester with birds building their nests under the panels creating noise as well as fouling the area, and the solar panel surface with their droppings. Solar panel bird proofing can provide the following options with offices in Tameside covering the North West and beyond.

Solar Panel Exclusion Kits

The most effective way to prevent the pigeons from entering the solar panel is to completely seal the outside perimeter of the panels with our specialized Solar Panel Exclusion Kits, these can be installed in a day with no drilling required and with the ability to still be able to carry out any essential maintenance on the panels as required.

Solar Exclusion Kits are provided with Stainless Steel Bird Mesh and will be attached with UV Treated Clips ensuring no damage is caused to the panels.

Panels will be cleaned down, and a Biocide applied under the panels.

Gutters can be cleaned at an additional charge.

Solar panel proofing also offer options to stop problem birds nesting on buildings & factories around the north west with these other methods:

1. Bird Free Gel

Bird Free has become recognised throughout the UK, and Europe, as an effective, yet unobtrusive, bird control method: well-known installations sites include Covent Garden and Paddington Station in London, it keeps all birds off all structures without harming them. It does so by altering their behaviour, not by acting as a physical barrier. Birds will completely desert a habitat, even one they have been using for years.

The gel is applied in low-profile application dishes, only 8mm high. One of its distinct advantages is that it deters birds from landing even when these dishes are placed behind the leading edge of a parapet or ledge. This makes the dishes  invisible from ground level, thus preserving the aesthetic appearance of the building, while at the same time keeping it clean.

2. Spiking

A bird control spike, or roost modification, is a device consisting of long, needle-like rods used for bird control. They can be attached to building ledges, street lighting, and commercial signage to prevent wild or feral birds from perching or roosting, bird control spikes are used to deter these birds without causing them harm or killing them


3. Culling

Lethal control has been used as a ‘quick-fix’ means of reducing feral pigeon numbers for as long as there has been a need to control the species.  

These will have to be carried out when other means of control have been exhausted with the permission of the land owner

4. Netting

bird netting and pigeon netting is used to exclude a considerable number of different species of birds including pigeons, gulls, sparrows, starlings etc., with a different gauge of netting being required for each species of bird.

5.Bird Wire

An  invisible tensioned bird wire system to prevent birds perching without damaging the aesthetics or construction of the building, comprising of posts, springs, wires and split pins.

6.Gutter Cleaning Service

Solar Panel Proofing- North West can also provide a specialist Gutter cleaning service to homes or businesses around the North West and Greater Manchester.
