How To Install Solar Panel Bird Mesh

Rooftop solar panels attract birds and other animals to find high shelters, which damages the panels. The bird mesh for solar panels solves bird/animal problems with specially designed meshes and clips that block birds and animals. Installing this detergent is simple and straightforward and does not damage the solar panel.

Removal of foreign objects

Before starting, it is important to clean and disinfect the site under and around the solar panel. Birds and animals are often fascinated by the fragrance of nesting materials and faeces. When removing these wastes, wear personal protective equipment (PPE) to prevent injury or infection. Some wastes and faeces may contain bacteria that cause the disease.

What you need?

To prepare for the installation of the bird mesh for solar panels from Elite Bird Control, you will need a wire cutter, a UV-grade zipper closure, tape measure, a mesh and a solar panel bird mesh clip. Also, adequate safety equipment is required to prevent injuries during installation on the ceiling.


To estimate the amount of material required and the number of people required for the job, measure the size and amount of roof panels. Start by measuring a complete matrix panel and divide its length into manageable mesh pieces. Bird B Gone recommends a length of 5 feet for ease of use. Align the pre-cut mesh with the matrix and check the excess mesh rectangle on the edges of the solar panel. Take a piece of mesh to a comfortable place on the roof and fold the remaining rectangle approximately 45 degrees with 2×4.


Place the folded side of the mesh on the roof and the other edge to the solar panel. With the mesh in place, fix the folded end of the safety clip through the mesh under the solar panel and connect the hooks. Pull the mounting clip and make sure the hooks fully touch the edge of the panel. Tighten the feed washers to the mesh so that the clips lock in place. Place the clip approximately every 18 inches, and then bend the clip rod up to cut off the excess rod. When it comes to the end of a pre-cut mesh panel, overlap the second piece with approximately 2 inches or four squares. Before attaching the feed washers, make sure that the clips pass through the two mesh panels.


To work around the outer corners, determine where the curve comes from and cut straight grooves in the part of the mesh panel that is on the roof. Bend the panel at a 90-degree angle along the groove, and then secure it around the corners. There will be gaps in the ceiling in the corners, therefore, cut a small piece of mesh approximately 2 x 4 inches to cover the space. Tie it in place with a zip fastener with a UV rating. For the inner edge, cut the 45-degree groove from the bottom, and then fold the mesh in the opposite direction so that the meshes overlap. Trim both ends of the corner mesh with the clip. Lock the bottom groove with zip closure.

Obstacle management

If you find an obstacle, such as a panel shelf, use a wire cutter to cut the obstacle. Make sure there are no spaces around obstacles that birds or other animals can crawl.

Spanish made roof tiles

The installation of detergent on this ceiling requires a lot of manual work, so you need to take into account the additional work time. Measure the height from the top of the solar panel to the highest part of the tile roof. Fold or cut the additional mesh away from the ceiling. Once installed on the roof, the mesh is placed on the tile, aligned with the solar panel and trimmed. To protect the open space between the bottom of the panel and the lower part of the tile, leave the roof and cut the small size to the required size. Attach this small piece using a pig ring tool or a UV grade zip tie.
