Why choose Malum for your pigeon proofing solar panels?
Stop pigeons from nesting under your solar panels
Most of us do not consider birds to be pests. In fact, many of us hang out feeders, actively encouraging them to visit our gardens. But some birds, such as pigeons, jackdaws and crows can cause just as much damage to your property as an infestation of rats, bed bugs or fleas.
Pest birds love solar panels as the gap between the roof and the panel provides the perfect place to shelter and is somewhere they can be safe, snug and out of sight. But when birds choose to nest underneath, swoop for scraps and foul on your solar panels they can cause significant destruction to your property and cause some serious health hazards too.
Birds such as pigeons carry over 60 different types of diseases that are spread to humans through their toxic droppings. To make matters worse, once the droppings have dried out, they turn to powder which can be carried in the air and inhaled.
And if that doesn’t sound bad enough, there is also the risk of bird mites entering your property and encouraging secondary pest infestations such as moths.
So don’t delay, if you have solar panels and want to protect them from pigeons and other pest birds, contact us today.
Protect your solar panels from birds
We can stop pigeons and other pest birds from roosting beneath your solar panels for good. Thanks to our team of experts and the use of state of the art technology, we are able to access hard to reach roofs where solar panels are usually installed.
A full risk assessment is carried out as standard to see how best to access your roof and in certain circumstances, specialist equipment (such as scaffolding or cherry pickers), may be required.
By working closely with local scaffolding companies we are able to directly pass on any discounts to our customers, helping you to save money along the way.
We do not need to remove any solar panels in the process, nor will we drill or screw on to them (which can void your warranty), enabling you to rest assured knowing that your solar panel performance will never be compromised. Instead, we will pigeon proof your panels, provide them with a thorough clean and eradicate any existing infestations or nesting material.
Preserve your solar panel warranty
By applying our method of installation, we can not only guarantee bird exclusion from beneath your solar panels but we will preserve the warranty of your solar panels for many years to come.
We offer a cost-effective solution to your solar panel bird problem and can include the use of specialist access equipment to help reduce costs. Our prices vary depending on the number of solar panels you have, where they are located and how safe it is to access the area. All of which will be assessed before any work is even undertaken.
Whether you have a three-storey townhouse, glass conservatory or a steeply pitched roof, we have the knowledge and know-how to get the job done.
Free 5-year Guarantee on our bird control materials
All of the bird control materials that we use are stainless steel and come with a 5-year guarantee. We offer this specialist service to residential customers as well as those within the commercial sector.
If you have noticed pigeons nesting or perching on your panels, frolicking on your fence or running riot on your rooftop, you may want to consider some bird control solutions before the situation gets out of hand.

Frequently asked questions on pigeon proofing solar panels
Yes, it is possible to buy your own solar panel bird proofing kit, however, we would always recommend using a pest control company to undertake the work on your behalf. Not only are our technicians trained to operate at height, but they are qualified to use specialist equipment such as scaffolding. The cleaning and sealing process for eradicating birds and pests is complex and should only ever be undertaken by a pest control expert.
Unfortunately, pigeons are birds of habit who like to nest in the same place each year. Therefore you need a permanent solution in order to move these nuisance birds on. This is why steel mesh is so effective as it prevents pest birds from accessing underneath your solar panels, forcing them to find new nesting areas – well away from your home.
At Malum Southern Pest and Bird Control, we will consult with you on the best way to pigeon proof your solar panels. This way we can agree on access and arrange any specialist equipment in advance. Once onsite, we will remove any pigeons insight and clean the area so that it is free from debris and potential parasites. Please note that we will not need to lift or remove any solar panels in order to do this. We will then treat the area for any secondary pest infestations and make sure that any leftover excrement does not corrode or damage the structure of your home. As a final procedure, we will install some made to measure steel mesh that effortlessly clips over the main structure of your solar panels and roof tiles. This will prevent any pest pigeons from fluttering underneath and setting up home.
Bird faeces does affect the energy efficiency of solar panels, even though most solar panels are self-cleaning. Birds tend to poop a lot, and when they do it is extremely acidic. This means that over time a large build-up can occur and impact the amount of electricity generated by a module. Grime and bird poop doesn’t even need to cover an entire panel to have an effect, it only needs to splash a small area and the damage is done.
