Bird Control Services Photo Album: Installing a Solar Exclusion Panel to Exclude the Pigeons in Lincroft, NJ
After dealing with pigeons roosting underneath the solar panels and defecating all over his roof, this customer in Lincroft, NJ, called our Bird Solutions division for help.
The pigeons were using the solar panels as a natural cover and protection from the elements as well as defecating all over the homeowners roof.
Bird Poop is Damaging
Pigeon droppings are not only hazardous to your health, but they also eat away almost any substrate, particularly tar-based roofing material. A constant accumulation of pigeon droppings can cut the life expectancy of a roof in half.
Remove the Bird Nesting
First, we carefully removed all the nesting debris underneath the solar panels. Afterward, we then disinfected the areas with a solution that targets bird mites. Bird mites are parasites that feed on the blood of birds. Bird mites are the main reason why extreme care is needed when removing a nest.
Solar Panel Exclusion Kit
Next, in order to prevent the pigeons (as well as all nuisance wildlife) from nesting underneath the solar panels, we installed our solar panel exclusion kit around the entire perimeter of the solar panels.
A Physical Barrier for the Pigeons
This kit creates a physical barrier to keep birds from accessing and nesting in the area beneath the solar arrays, protecting the roof and equipment from damage.
Nowhere to Nest
With nowhere to nest, the pigeons will no longer be attracted to the home and the solar panels will be protected from further intrusions from all types of birds and nuisance wildlife.
