PVC COATED WIRE MESH CRITTER GUARDS THAT

THE FACTS

  • The leading cause of damage to residential roof-mounted solar in the Northeast of the United States are squirrels. Because squirrels are rodents their front teeth never stop growing making them constantly want to gnaw on things like the wires to solar panels.
  • The small gap under the solar panels creates a safe nesting environment for squirrels, birds, raccoons and other pesky animals where they are protected from predators such as hawks.
  • The height of the roof creates a natural nesting habitat for the squirrels, just like the trees do, while the roof gives them a constant water supply with rain water running down into the nest.
  • Mating season for squirrels is from February to May with some squirrels mating again in the fall. Gestation takes 44-days and generally 2 to 4 young are born per litter.
  • Active nesting season for squirrels is October to May with squirrel nesting activity peaking in February to April. This is when the majority of solar owners will experience the signs of nesting squirrels.
  • Squirrels are clever creatures that learn to navigate by finding shortcuts, have the ability to jump up to 20 feet and can climb vertically on almost all surfaces making it impossible to keep them off your roof.
  • The longer a squirrel’s nest sits on your roof the better chance you have for sustaining roof damage. The nests are constantly moist causing the shingles to break apart. This will cause a leak or hole in the roof and in some cases the squirrels could burrow into the home.

THE SOLUTION

  • PVC coated wire mesh critter guard application that encapsulates your entire solar pv system.
  • PVC coated wire mesh is a heavy gauge at .058 to prevent animals from chewing through.
  • Installed using a special clip so there is no screwing or mounting to your panels or roof
  • Installations and craftsmanship are backed by a lifetime guarantee against pests getting under the solar panels.
  • Additional prevention of the wire mesh includes leaves, sticks, snow, ice and seasonal debris buildup from forming under the solar panels.

Thank you Dan for a quality job. Your professionalism was greatly appreciated. I communicated with Dan through email. He answered any question I had and we set an appointment within days of me reaching out to him. He was a prompt, thorough and honest professional. Highly recommend his services to anyone.

Solar Pest Solutions was prompt, professional and did a great job resolving our pigeon problem. The outcome is a clean install of protective fencing / "critter guard" around our somewhat uniquely arranged solar panels. I would also like to highlight that Dan (the business owner) is a gentlemen and had no problem explaining the process, the fence install, and the associated warranty. He also scaled our roughly 3.5 story home and got the job done despite a light wind.

Dan is a real professional who is very easy to communicate with. He provided an estimate via email and answered all of my questions promptly. He was very clear and up-front about the variability of the cost because it depends on how many nests are buried under solar panels already that he would need to clean out. He arrived right on time, and completed the work in the timeframe promised. The roof looks cleaned up and he was thorough. The whole process was very straightforward. Looking forward to bird-free seasons to come!

If I could give more stars, I most certainly would. I had a pigeon problem under my solar panels, which was casings to not use part of yard due to all of the poop on the ground.. Solar Pest Solutions, took care of it pretty quick. Fantastic company, competitive pricing, clean & neat work and Dan is a helluva nice guy.

Found the best price and Dan installed the very next day. No more issues with squirrels building a nest under the panel. He also fixed a broken/chewed wire. Tesla wanted to charge $2150 to come and fix this minor issue (doesn't include pest abadment). Definetly recommend to have Dan come out and install critter guards.

Dan was great with every aspect of the process. Helpful with the quote, giving lots of details and being flexible with payment. Great communication before the job and very clear and thorough while on the job. The guards came out great and he removed/cleared a squirrels nest, checked all wiring. Definitely recommend Solar Pest Solutions for securing your solar panels, clearing any nests/debris.

Highly recommended. Dan is very responsive and does quality work with very competitive pricing. Definitely great investment if you have solar panels to prevent the animals costing thousand dollars of damage down the years.

Dan Leask did a great job on my solar panels. He evicted (humanely) a large nest of squirrels that had been chewing on the wiring. He then installed a PVC Coated Wire Mesh Pest Guard. He responded quickly and did a great job. He is very knowledgeable, skilled, careful and safe. I recommend him very highly. Dan did another job at my house. The panels had to be removed by a solar company to do repairs. Dan reinstalled the squirrel guards. He responded quickly, scheduled work asap, did a fine job. He is excellent at what he does. And he is a really nice guy. If you have pests, you should call him. He is the best.

Working with Solar Pest Control was such a pleasant experience! They were so timely and we were able to make an appointment within a few days. We continued to have some problems with our ants so they came back within less than 24 hours of me reaching out free of charge! They really are a great company & I highly recommend!
