Why are birds attracted to solar panels?

Rooftops and especially solar panels are a perfect environment for pigeons and other birds to nest and roost underneath.

Roofs and Solar Panels provide shelter from the heat of the sun, rain and safety from predators as well as giving them easy access to go in and out as they please.

How do you keep birds from nesting under solar panels?

Pigeons and other birds will use whatever they find to build their nests, keeping your garden free of food and debris is a useful step.

If you have pets, make sure their food is kept in containers and make sure that you stay on top of clearing things up like leaves and twigs.

Can birds damage solar panels?

Over some time, birds can cause substantial damage to solar panels produced by their droppings and debris. The nests attract other pests such as rodents and squirrels which could chew through the solar panels electrical wires resulting in rooftop fires or shorts to your electrics.

Bird droppings result in the solar panels to become less efficient as they block the solar panels from receiving the full exposure of the sun.
