Keep Pigeons from Destroying Solar Panels

Keep Pigeons from Destroying Solar Panels

Many homeowners and income property owners are installing solar panels to save electricity. Trouble is, in many areas, pigeons are attracted to these panels, as they offer shade and protection to the birds. When these prolific birds flock to a roof, they create costly damage by depositing droppings that eat into the surface of solar panels. Left to gather, these droppings block sunlight and can reduce the overall efficiency of panels. In addition, nesting materials built under panels can impede airflow and can cause them to overheat, again, more damage. Fortunately, the bird control pros at Bird B Gone have a solution to this problem.
