Solar Panel Bird Mesh Protection & Proofing

Solar panels are excellent investments harnessing sustainable energy to power your home or business.  

As more residential and commercial properties in Melbourne become fitted with solar panels, so too does the need for bird prevention as homes and office buildings become ideal nesting and roosting locations. 

Solar panels are a high-value investment to any home; unfortunately, they can be vulnerable to damage by birds coming to roost. Often missed by solar panel salespeople, homeowners need to consider bird protection and bird prevention to avoid damage that is often unlikely to be covered by your warranty

At Aussie Gutter Protection, we offer bird protection and bird prevention services without compromising the solar panels’ ability to collect solar energy.

Our solar panel bird protection services prevent birds from gaining access to the gap between the roof and the underside of your solar panel. This eliminates birds, vermin, and other pests from damaging your solar panels and the underlying roofing system.  

1 in 5 homes have pigeon-related problems, and feral pigeons nesting under solar panels are major issues. 

Dealing with birds nesting around solar panels is challenging; preventing damage, removing bird mess, and getting rid of the birds. It is always easier to prevent birds nesting than removing – so be proactive about your bird proofing today.

Pest bird invasions can cause solar panel defects as birds can tamper with the electrical wiring while nesting. Bird droppings are highly acidic and can cause permanent damage and erosion to the solar panels aluminum frames and stain the solar panel façade, leading to loss of solar panel function. Bird-related damage is often not covered under the panels warranty.  


Pest bird mess and nesting ruminants accumulate under the solar panels. Nesting material and feathers create blockages and water build-up under the solar panels. This build-up can seep through the shingles and tiles into the roof sheathing and insulation on tiled roofs.


Bird nesting material and droppings contain various parasites and transmissible diseases, including salmonella, which negatively impacts your health. Close bird besting proximity to humans can transmit mites and lice infestations. A build-up of nesting material also attracts other pests, such as vermin and possums.


Bird droppings on your solar panels look terrible, and the dropping’s acidity leaves permeant discolouration and stains on your property. Birds will also leave droppings and nesting ruminants on roofing eaves, verandas, and gutters, negatively impacting your property aesthetics.


Birds inhabiting the space under your solar panels leave their eggshells, grass, nesting materials resulting in fouling build-up. In some cases, birds can trap themselves underneath the panels and die. Solar panel cleaning is an arduous task that risks your safety and damage to your roofing system and property.


Birds nesting and roosting is often a loud affair. Baby birds are also notoriously noisy while remaining in the nest, most often during the night time. Some Melbourne bird species even live in communal families, which adds to the noise. Enjoy peace and quiet by installing a bird guard on your solar panels today.



Many signs indicate birds have infested your house and build nests under your solar panels. The most common signs are as followed;

How we bird proof your solar panels

Given the number of problems birds create nesting under your solar panels and the challenges of getting rid of them once they do, it’s vital to consider bird prevention methods before they get under the roofs. 

One specific challenge to bird proofing solar panels is that there is typically limited space to install bird spikes, though we offer bird spikes as a product. 

However, some solar panels and extreme bird infestation cases install bird spikes as a secondary measure.

We can complete gutter cleaning and gutter guard installation to the guttering system and roof valleys, giving you a complete solution to all your bird control and pest control needs.


The best bird-proofing method for protecting your solar panels from birds is using our Solar Mesh. We designed and manufactured this solar panel mesh guard product to help with bird prevention for solar panels.

Other kinds of bird guard mesh can block UV light penetration, which would diminish the amount of energy your panels can collect per day. Our premium solar mesh is specially engineered to allow sunlight to pass through while providing an effective barrier against birds – an excellent bird mesh kit product.

The high strength effectively prevents birds’ access, and the specific design of the mesh allows plenty of solar arrays to flow through without interruption.

The mesh is also unlikely to cause any harm to the birds; it merely prevents them from being able to get at your solar panels to cause damage.

At Aussie Gutter Protection, we offer two wire mesh products for bird proofing solar panels made from e 

Our Solar Mesh Pro stainless steel mesh material is less affected by corrosion for longer-lasting protection.
