Animal Control NYC Solar Panel Rodent Guards in Concourse, NY
Rooftop solar panels are elevated from a roof by a few inches, creating a space beneath that is warm and protected from wind, rain, snow, and predators. And that opens up opportunities for wildlife to begin to nest underneath it. For many animals such as raccoons, squirrels, pigeons, rats, chipmunks and other wildlife animals, this is the perfect location to build a nest. Once the animals get comfortable under these panels, they become more likely to scratch, claw, and otherwise damage the panels in ways that are expensive and irreversible. Call Animal Control NYC 646-741-4333 today to inspect your solar panels, Animal Control NYC does commercial and residential rooftops in Concourse, NY.
One of the most common critters that invade your solar panels are birds. In NY and NJ, common pest bird species include pigeons, house sparrows, and starlings. When these birds begin to nest, they bring in debris and trash that is often combustible. And this can pose a serious fire danger if it’s exposed to electricity underneath your solar panel.
Mice can poses a danger to your solar panels. They breed quickly and nesting on your roof can provide them easy access to the inside of your home through small openings, potentially leading to a whole-house infestation. Mice also pose a fire danger, if they begin to gnaw and chew on the wiring of the solar panel.
Animal Control NYC offers SolaTrim for larger rodents such as opossums, squirrels and raccoons, and our high-quality mesh for smaller critters like mice, rats, and chipmunks. For bird prevention methods we use stainless steel spikes in variable measurements, bird spikes make it harder for a bird to land on a surface. We install the spikes around the solar array’s framing to help prevent birds from landing on, and potentially scratching, the panels.
