Hi All, i live in ex council house, and took the offer of free solar panels on my roof in 2015, now , my question is , whats the most successful and obviously cheapest way of deterring flamin pigeons from nesting under them , i know you can buy spikes etc --all those cost cash i don't have , i suppose im after home remedies , i've read garlic is good, and essential oils, anyone a had experience, ok i could air rifle the buggas but my luck id get the panels or be prosecuted, pretty reluctant to climb up the roof, with age comes fear..

Thanks

It will mean getting up on your roof, but if that doesn't bother you, try rolling up chicken wire and pushing it an inch or two under the pannel edges. Make sure to do it soon because if the birds are nesting and sitting on eggs it is illegal to touch them until the young have flown the nest.

yeah good plan,and it would probably work, only downside is, apart from falling off the roof, is the panels butt upto the gable end, so that would a ladder job:cautious:, a tall ladder mmm

A dummy bird of prey mounted on the roof, should keep the pigeons at bay. A Hawk or Falcon should do the job.(y)
They don't work, maybe they might if they were animated and made sounds.

I wanted one to keep the flocks of birds from sh###### on the washing and my car. A local on facebook told me not to bother and where I could go and see a couple on roofs round here, and they are surrounded by birds, like St Francis of Assisi. :rolleyes:
