FACT: Birds can be a significant pest in food premises, such as food storage warehouses, food factories and bakeries. They often gain entry through loading bay areas or damaged roofing.
There are ways to make your premises less attractive to nuisance birds, dissuading them from taking up residence, and encouraging them to find more appropriate nesting sites. The following practical steps can help you deter nuisance birds;
The use of solar photovoltaic panels (Solar PV) to convert sun rays into electricity is increasing rapidly as technology makes more efficient, slimline and economic options available. However, nesting birds are also taking advantage of this 'renewables' technology. Pigeons in particular have made the most of the shelter offered under solar panels to nest and roost.
Why are nesting birds under solar panels a problem?
Birds nesting in and around solar panels can easily damage the cabling/wiring and the photovoltaic panels themselves. Debris such as feathers, fouling and nesting material will reduce the effectiveness of the panels thus reducing output and bird faeces is particuarly corrosive. Pigeon and gull droppings also carry pathogens such as Salmonellosis and Escherichia coli that can lead to illnesses like gastro-enteritis, presenting a healh hazard particuarly to those working on or maintaining the solar panels. The simplist way to ensure solar panel protection is to have them professionally proofed using mesh specifically designed to pigeon proof solar panels. This prevents birds accessing the area beneath the solar panels - protecting the wiring, equipment and roof from damage.
Pigeons are hosts to parasitic pests such as ticks, fleas and bird mites, which can spread to people. The insects live on the birds and their droppings but when the birds leave the roost the parasites can invade buildings in search of a new food source. Pigeons and gulls also harbour some nasty diseases, which could make you seriously ill:
