CRITTER GUARD INSTALLation
Protect your solar panels from squirrels, rodents, pigeons and other critters.
Critter Guard Blocks animals from accessing & Damaging Critical Solar Infrastructure
PREVENT Electrical FIRE HAZARDS
Squirrels have been known to nest under panels and chew through solar panel wires. Chewing through wires can electrocute squirrels, and become a fire hazard to your home. If you see exposed wire on your rooftop, please call immediately.
Keep Pigeons Away
Birds tend to nest under solar systems; they can create colonies that cause loud noise during the day, and leave behind a mess of feces. Bird feces can be acidic, resulting in strains on the solar power line and attracting other animals.
AVOID COSTLY REPAIRS
Damage to your solar system caused by any type of pest infestation isn’t covered by standard insurance or warranty. Protect your home and protect your investment. Avoid unwanted repair costs with a critter guard installation.

Should I install a critter guard with my solar panels?
Roof-mounted solar panels are the ideal environment for pests such as squirrels, raccoons, pigeons, and other roof-top critters to roost and nest. The high vantage point on the roof and the narrow opening under the panels provide shade from the sun and security from predators. These uninvited critters can wreak havoc on a solar system by chewing through wires or corroding the electrical components with feces. When you have any type of pest infestation under a system, it’s best to address the problem as soon as possible. Exposed wire on your roof can ultimately become a fire hazard. Even in areas with high squirrel and bird populations, installing critter guards will protect your PV system from environmental damages.
