Solar Panel Jackdaw Proofing UK Wide 

 Are Jackdaws nesting under your solar panels? 

Jackdaws are usually found nesting in chimneys and not under solar panels, however they are now exploiting a new man-made shelter. 
As well as breeding in colonies, jackdaws also roost and feed together. This can cause large problems when they start to use your solar panels as their roosting and nesting site, and can result in nests and debris blocking the lenght of your solar panel array.  
 
ApcUK has developed a bird barrier system using galvanised welded wire mesh, galvanised clips and wire ties. Using this system we have achieved 100% success rate with keeping the jackdaws out! Using this system will not affect your warranty, we do not drill into any part of the array and only use metal clips. Our solar panel proofing experts are happy to talk to the company that installed your panels, for your peace of mind.

Once Jackdaws have decided to live under your solar array they will build a nest and before long, more Jackdaws will follow. 
 
Jackdaws nests are much larger then pigeons they are better built and contain a lot more sticks which pesents a fire hazard due to the dried grass and hay they use to line the final layer of the nest. 
 
Jackdaw problems solar panels

 Stop Jackdaws going under your solar panel array 

In their natural habitat, Jackdaws build their nests by filling up cavities in trees with sticks until they reach the top of the cavity. When nesting under solar panels they build nests in much the same way, dropping sticks and twigs under the panels until they reach the top, the nest is then lined with wool or hair. The Jackdaws nest design does not bode well for the solar panel, the deep nest will cause hot spots all over the panel due to restricted airflow dramatically reducing the output and ultimately damaging the panel.
