In recent years, bird infestation has become a major issue with Solar Panel installations. Pigeons in particular have increasingly made their nests under panels and then they very quickly create a lot of mess. The rotting matter will find its way into connectors, causing them to corrode and overheat. To prevent, this we recommend fitting bird spikes on the underside of the panels for all new installations. Unlike mesh used by some installers, these spikes do not rust, are UV resistant and fixed with low modulus adhesive that will not invalidate the solar panel warranty.
