Feral Pigeon and Gull Deterants
Pigeon Proofing Solar Panels
Pigeons nesting under solar panels is an increasing problem.
The solution is to fit a metal ‘cage’ around the solar panels and to run bird wire along the length of the gutter.
Bird-proofing is not straightforward and if it is to be both effective and inconspicuous it should be fitted by trained technicians.
All too often we see ugly bird spikes glued to the ledges of buildings in Fife, which not only turn it into an eyesore, but often don’t do the job they were intended to.
Gulls and Feral Pigeons Procedure
- Carry out survey of infested area.
- Assess the level of infestation.
- Correct prevention procedure.
Due to the persistence of Gulls and Pigeons, prevention through blocking off of nesting area using netting or spikes will deter the birds from returning. Methods of prevention do not harm, just moves them away from the area.
Netting is used to block off large areas from gulls and pigeon access to stop perching as well as the use of spike posts and wires.
