Having solar panels is an investment for our homes as it can save you money on electricity prices and also is great for the environment but what happens if you get pesky birds making their home under your solar panels and why do they love our solar panels so much.

 

Birds love being at the highest point due to being protected from various animals and wildlife, stalking of their food source and you have just now made a shelter for the birds to make their nest and keep warm.

 

With birds roosting up on your solar panels and underneath they are making your solar panels work less efficient therefore you really are not saving money by having the solar panels there.

 

Along with the birds come their nonsense with louds chirping, bird debris, bird poop, lice and guess what loves all of this? Rodents, so on top of birds you will get rodents which can lead to electoral wiring being chewed through.

 

A build-up of bird poop which can corrode your solar panels and roof tiles and nesting debris can cause your solar panels to run less efficiently as there is restricted airflow through your solar panels.

 

Did you know that if we experience heavy rainfall then all the nesting debris and poop will slide down to the guttering system and therefore causes blockages in the guttering system which then will cause further issues for you and your property.

How Redline Pest Control will bird proof your solar panels for you!

 

Redline Pest Control will supply and install galvanised bird proofing mesh to the perimeter of your solar panels to ensure that birds, birds nesting debris, rodents and leaf matter will not get underneath your solar panels.

 

Galvanised bird proofing mesh is made from a robust hot dipped galvanised mesh to ensure overall strength and protection to all your solar panel system.

 

The Galvanised bird mesh is attached to the edges of your solar panels using a special clipping system, this allows for the galvanised bird mesh to be attached to your solar panels without having to drill, screw or apply any adhesives to your solar panels.

 

Once the galvanised bird mesh has been installed these clips can then be unclipped should any access/maintenance needs to be carried out to your solar panels.

 

Once the galvanised bird mesh has been carried out it is designed to prevent birds, rodents and leaf debris from being able to enter or nest underneath your solar panels.

 

Prior to the installation of the galvanised bird mesh, all live/dead birds will need to be removed from under your solar panels.

 

Redline Pest Control will carry out a complimentary bird lice treatment to the roof void area of your home.

Birds can become a real nuisance to our humble home or our place of business.

 

Bird droppings and bird nesting materials can have a real negatively impact our humble home or our place of business.

 

Unfortunately, birds can carry over 60 different diseases which can be passed on to us humans and pets.

Birds that congregate around your humble home or place of business also encourages bird mites to go into the roof void and down to us for them to feed on.

 

Here are some of the main reasons why Bird Proofing and Removal Sydney is important

  • Birds will contaminate any food production and inventory when they roost or nest in warehouses and factories.

Health Risks From Birds 

 

Unfortunately, Bird droppings and nesting materials can carry over 60 different diseases that can harm humans and pets. Bird mites can enter through broken tiles on your roof.

 

Bird Mites

 

Bird mites are very small and can be barely visible to the human eye. Bird mites are transparent in colour, which can make them difficult to see on your skin until blood has been digested; once the bird mites digest our blood, they will usually appear reddish rather than be transparent, this is due to bird mites having a blood host that they have recently fed on.

 

Contact with humans or pets usually occurs after birds gain entry in our roof voids of our humble homes or place of business to build their nests for the next breeding season.

 

Bird mite infestations can also occur from birds roosting on the outside of dwellings such as window ledges, chimneys or awnings.

 

Bird mites feed on birds, and with the nesting material used by the birds provides bird mites with an ideal environment in which bird mites will thrive.

 

The bird mites have a very short life cycle but can rapidly infest an area very quickly the lifecycle of a bird mite is usually about seven days.

 

When birds leave the nest or die, many bird mites are left behind for a new suitable host.

 

Bird mites will die within seven days without a blood host from birds. They will bite us humans but can not survive long periods of time without an actual bird host.

 

However, until the infestation of bird mites is controlled the problem will persist.

 

Inventory Damage From Birds

 

Bird Droppings can damage your production lines and can contaminate products in your warehouse, factories or manufacturing plants.

Birds can often be found perching on purlins and rafters in warehouses, factories and storage facilities. Bird droppings in these areas can affect your food safety audits which can cost you your reputation and money.

Property and Equipment Damage

 

Bird droppings can ruin machinery and operating equipment which can cost you more money in the long run by not proofing against birds.

Blocked Drains and Gutters

 

Bird droppings and nesting materials regularly block gutters and drainage systems. It is important to bird proof any areas that birds can cause damage or roost to avoid any of the 60 diseases that they carry.
