Keep pigeons off your panels
Pigeon proof your solar panels to get rid of filthy, noisy pigeons.
Comprehensive pigeon protection
Reduce pigeon noise
Pigeons are loud. They start cooing early in the morning and make noise throughout the day. This can be very disruptive to sleep, work, and more. Pigeon proofing prevents pigeons from returning to your roof.
Eliminate risk of lice and mites
Cleaner solar panels can get more light into them, so that they function better and produce more power. The average home can see a power increase of 10-20%, some have even seen up to a 60% increase.
Protect your gutters
Pigeon droppings tend to fill, and clog gutters if not cleaned. As well as this, pigeon droppings tend to contain seeds or other plant matter which clogs up and grows in your gutters. All of this can cause significant damage to your gutters.

This is why it is important to tackle a pigeon problem as early as possible.
