Pigeons under Solar Panels

 

 

Did you know…

Feral pigeons are a nuisance and a health hazard to many homes and factories in Brisbane, Caboolture and the Sunshine Coast.  Pigeon droppings are acidic and can eat away at buildings and stain paint work.  The fecal matter, feathers, nesting material and deceased birds are not only a bio hazzard but can also end up in your gutters causing blockages.

Many people are having problems with pigeons nesting under their solar panels, where they generate huge amounts of faeces.   Pigeons build their nests from sticks and excrement bound together like cement.  If left to their own devices they will multiply and create a huge mess of faeces, feathers, dead birds and sticks.

Pigeons like the shelter provided by the solar array.  Stopping their access will incentivise them to move onto somewhere else.  They like to roost near to where they nest.

What is the life cycle of a pigeon?
The feral pigeon is capable of breeding throughout the year and nests may be found in any month. Usually, two white eggs are laid on consecutive days. Incubation lasts about 18 days with fledging taking place about 4 ½ weeks later. A new clutch can be laid when the first young are 20 days old. Therefore up to nine broods may be produced per year by just one female pigeon.

Our solution includes cleaning and removal of all nesting and faecal matter, cleaning the top sides of panels and installing UV stabilised polycarbonate (super strong) bird spikes to the perimeter, keeping the birds from sheltering or accessing underneath the solar panels.
