Solar Panel Bird Proofing​

Solar panels provide the perfect shelter for disease carrying feral pigeons. Protected from predators and the weather, it is an ideal nesting area.

Eagle eye

  • The Eagle Eye is a bird deterrent system that has reflective panels that send beams around the area in a menacing pattern. The light reflected by the Eagle Eye disorients birds in flight, disrupting their landing and deterring them.
    The Eagle eye is available in a number of different models including the

Bird Breezer

Which covers around 2.5 square metres.

Propellor unit

Which covers around 10 square metres.

Wind Unit

Which is also available in a 240 volt powered or solar-powered unit.

  • These units should always be installed in networks of two or more. The Eagle Eye can be expected to deter a high percentage of new arrivals, however if there are birds currently nesting or roosting, they should be removed physically and the site cleaned up.

Spray Repellent

A liquid deterrent can be sprayed around the solar panels to help prevent birds from arriving. The spray repels birds without harming them and is of course not harmful to humans or animals.
The deterrent works on the sense of smell and taste of the birds, creating a feeling that the area is not safe.

Hedgehog spikes

Hedgehogs come in one meter lengths and are available in 110mm, 125mm, 150mm & 175mm. They are easily installed and flexible. These are a great way to close up cavities where birds may be entering.

Spikes

In some cases, bird spikes could be required to prevent birds from landing or occupying an area such as a window ledge or air conditioner unit. These are easy to install. We use stainless steel, not plastic which tends to break down in our harsh conditions. We use a special polyurethane bonding agent to secure the spikes, which dries flexible, not brittle, to ensure the spikes stay on the roof for many years.

Electrified Bird Deterrents

In some cases, birds need to be excluded from ledges, walls and beams by using an electrified deterrent. The low profile track is attached using a special bonding agent, and connected to a 240v power system. This system delivers a strong but harmless shock to the birds, causing them to fly off quickly.

Trapping

  • Once exclusion measures are installed, persistent birds can be trapped and removed from the property. The traps can be set up easily on the roof or in the back yard. The trapping process will involve a couple of weeks of free feeding then trapping.
    The trap is covered, providing the birds with shade and protection from the elements. Food and water are also provided in the cage. Once trapped, all birds need to be removed and euthanised within 24 hours.

Elevated Netting

Large, flat roofs can become inundated with pigeons, seagulls and other pest bird species. The birds like to nest in areas such as gutters, under air conditioning units and windows. Often the best solution is elevated netting.
The netting is UV stabililsed, whilst the cable and turnbuckles are stainless steel, allowing us to offer a 10 year warranty.
