Solar Panels and Pest Infestations
We offer a range of products that are aimed at protecting your solar panels from the damage caused by pests. For solar panels that are built on top of buildings, the main culprits are the birds. Solar panels, after all, offer a shady yet warm place for birds to make their nests. Unfortunately, birds are not necessarily the cleanest animal. Nor do they care much for private property. They’ll make use of the gap between the roof and the back of your solar panel to make a nice little home.
Anyone that’s dealt with a pigeon infestation knows that they tend to leave excrement all around their nests. This can attract all kinds of bacteria and mold. Worse still, pigeon infestations tend to increase the likelihood of other infestations such as cockroaches. And in The Bronx, where cockroaches are already a problem, do you really want to create the ideal conditions for them to thrive?
The problem is virtually the same for solar panels that are built on the ground. Only there, you’ll find more issues with ground animals like rodents. Since The Bronx is full of a wide variety of urban animals, the risks that they take shelter under your solar panels is quite high.
