Bird Proofing Solutions for Solar Panels

If you have solar panels installed on your property, you may have noticed that birds are attracted to them.

Birds can cause significant damage to solar panels, which can result in costly repairs. Fortunately, there are effective bird proofing solutions available to protect your solar panels from damage.

At Sydney’s Best Pest Control, we offer reliable and affordable bird control services to help you protect your investment.

Common bird proofing solutions for solar panels

There are various bird proofing solutions available for solar panels, including:

Bird spikes: Plastic or metal spikes that are installed on the edges of solar panels to prevent birds from landing or roosting on them.

Netting:  A fine mesh net that is installed over the solar panels to prevent birds from accessing them.

Wire mesh: A wire mesh that is installed around the solar panels to prevent birds from nesting underneath them.

Why is bird proofing important for solar panels?

Solar panels are an attractive location for birds to nest and roost, as they provide shelter and warmth.

Protection of solar panels: Bird droppings, nesting materials, and debris can accumulate on solar panels, reducing their efficiency and performance. By bird proofing solar panels, you can protect them from damage and ensure that they continue to function optimally.

Safety: Birds can nest and roost under solar panels, which can create a fire hazard. Their nesting materials can also clog the ventilation space under the panels, which can cause overheating and lead to a potential fire hazard.

Health risks: Birds can carry a variety of diseases and parasites that can be transmitted to humans, such as histoplasmosis and cryptococcosis. By bird proofing solar panels, you can reduce the risk of exposure to these diseases.

Noise reduction: Birds can create a lot of noise while nesting and roosting on solar panels, which can be annoying for homeowners and their neighbours. By bird proofing solar panels, you can reduce the noise level and create a more peaceful environment.

Overall, bird proofing your solar panels is a wise investment that can help protect your panels, reduce potential safety hazards, and improve your overall living environment.

The Harmful Effects of Bird Nesting on Solar Panels

Birds nesting on solar panels is a common occurrence, as solar panels provide a flat and elevated surface that is attractive to birds for building nests. While it may seem harmless, pest birds nesting on solar panels can cause several problems.

Firstly, bird droppings can accumulate on the solar panels, reducing their efficiency and potentially causing damage. This can also result in a significant loss of energy production, as the bird droppings can cover the solar cells and block sunlight from reaching them.

Secondly, bird nests can also cause damage to the solar panels themselves. Nests built on the solar panels can block the flow of air, which can lead to overheating and reduce the lifespan of the panels. Nests can also trap moisture, leading to corrosion of the panels.
