The owners of a property in Southampton had spent £1,000’s on solar panels. A few months after the panels had been installed a few pigeons started nesting under the panels. The pigeons continued through the winter with the number going up day by day, within months there were at least 14 pigeons laying eggs and depositing pigeon guano throughout the Panels. This became very unsightly, smelly and even became a slip hazard to passers by.


Whelan Pest Prevention cleaned the solar panels and removed all pigeon guano and nesting material. We then installed a new protection system which protected the panels from the ingress of pigeons as well as starlings. Whelan Pest Prevention only use 316 stainless steel mesh that is rust resistant and does not become rusty due to weather and the elements.
