When you find debris from bird nests scattered across your roof and garden, with droppings everywhere, it’s likely your roof and solar panels have been taken hostage by nesting birds, most likely pigeons. Solar panels offer heat and a safe harbour to the birds from weather and predators.

The cheapest and least effective methods of solar panel bird proofing is chicken wire. It doesn’t last, the birds can still get through it often within a short space of time.
Although robust and made from galvanised steel, solar panel mesh looks terrible and often it won’t survive Scottish weather, especially the harsh winters.
Much like solar panel mesh, bird netting looks terrible and often it won’t survive Scottish weather conditions. Bird netting will also collect a huge amount of bird mess and nest debris.
The obvious flaw with stainless steel solar panel bird spikes is the small gaps. Bird spikes are very dangerous for the welfare of the pigeons, who will continue to make it their mission in life to get through the tiny gap, especially if they believe there is young left behind. Solar panel bird spikes are however an effective method to stop birds and pigeons perching on the corners of your roof.
In the Scottish landscape, solar panels are a perfect site for roosting and nesting. Birds use the residual space for shelter and warmth, and you might end up living with an everyday nuisance. From the noise to damage, nesting is the root of many significant problems.
The scratchy noise over your head can drive even the calmest to distraction. With the bird infestation, your roof might sound like a battlefront amidst all the shrieking and cooing. Birds love to live in flocks, and there might be no end to the new birds joining in.
The accumulation of nesting material and dropping can create hotspots which are eventually going to lead to solar cell failure. Bird droppings are acidic, and heaps of it can expedite the corrosion of the Aluminum frame. Not only is your roof going to look nasty, but any contact with the droppings can also cause severe infections due to pathogens in it.
Nesting material and droppings can block your drainage system, creating weak spots, which eventually leads to leaks. Birds attract other pests including rodents and squirrels. These critters chew up the solar panel wiring, which can cause short circuits and rooftop fires.
