As the popularity of solar panels (both residential and commercial) continues to grow, so does one unfortunate pest problem. Birds, notably pigeons, find the space between the roof and solar panels an ideal spot to create nests. While it may seem pretty harmless to leave them to it, there are a few issues that arise:

  • Damage to solar panel cabling, leading to system failure.
  • The build-up of debris, faeces, and nesting material.
  • Dead pigeons that get stuck under the panels.
  • Once pigeons notice your panels, many more will follow suit.
  • Vastly increased mess on the panel surfaces, reducing efficiency and increasing the regularity of cleaning required.

We offer affordable solar panel bird-proofing throughout Essex & Suffolk, including but not limited to Colchester, Brentwood, Chelmsford and Ipswich.

how we can help - durable & effective solutions.

Our simple yet highly effective solution is to install specially designed guards around the edges of the panels to prevent birds from accessing the nesting spots. Our bird-proofing systems are non-harmful and discreet. This allows maximum airflow underneath the panels to prevent them from overheating and maintains operational efficiency.

leave everything to us.

We carry our own scaffolding towers (therefore, no additional costly hiring fees) and have special solar panel bridging ladders so we do not have to walk on the roof. All staff are trained in rope access and carry all relevant safety equipment.

After receiving your call, we will conduct a site survey, advising on the best product to use (samples of each will be available to see). You will then be sent our quote along with recommendations.

If you're based in Essex or Suffolk, drop us a line or send a message today to discuss your solar panel bird-proofing requirements.

My solar panels are now pigeon-free!

Eastern Counties Pest Control were exceptional in dealing with a pigeon problem under our solar panels and also our neighbour's solar panels. They were very professional, friendly, hardworking and great people. Pricing was very reasonable and the end result was fantastic. The solar panels are now fitted Stixx solar guards and the pigeon problem has been resolved. I would instantly recommend Terry and his team to anyone.


Professional, courteous and focussed

ECPC installed a 60m rabbit-proof fence in our garden. It may sound odd, but the job has been done so well I can't stop looking at it! This is no bang it in and take the money outfit. The entire end-to-end process was smooth and efficient, from the competitive quote to the onsite work. Terry was professional, courteous and focussed on the job. It is obvious he takes considerable pride in delivering a quality product. Highly recommended.


Professional and friendly service

From the initial contact to the end of the job everything was done in a professional yet friendly fashion.
