Step Two : Select an Appropriate Bird Deterrent Solution
Once you’ve identified any areas with bird issues, the next step should be selecting an effective deterrent solution tailored specifically for them. Bird deterrents come in various forms that suit different situations. So, here are a few common options:
The Bird Spikes
Bird spikes are an effective deterrent against bird landing on flat surfaces such as solar panels. Their effectiveness makes them particularly suitable for use around the edges where birds often perch and rest their wings on surfaces such as rooftop solar panels and similar environments where birds tend to land and perch on them.
Netting creates an impenetrable physical barrier against birds that they simply can’t penetrate. Also, making it the ideal solution to cover larger areas or entire solar arrays with persistent bird issues.
Traps are humane devices designed to capture birds without harming them. Also, helping you relocate birds away from solar arrays and away from harm’s way.
Bird Mesh for Solar Panels
Mesh can be an efficient solution to cover certain parts of solar panels to deter birds from perching and nesting while providing ventilation. It helps ensure birds cannot land, while still permitting air circulation for proper ventilation.
