The residence located in Townsville, QLD, was facing specific issues with Indian Mynas and Pigeons. These birds are known to cause several problems:

  1. Nesting: Indian Mynas and Pigeons tend to accumulate and nest around solar panels and in gutters. This nesting behavior not only causes potential damage to the solar panels, reducing their efficiency, but also leads to blockages in the gutters.

  2. Disease: Both Indian Mynas and Pigeons are known to carry diseases, and their droppings can be a health hazard for the residents.

  3. Noise and Aggression: Indian Mynas are particularly noisy birds and can be very aggressive, causing distress to residents and native wildlife.

Moreover, the standard gutter was getting clogged with leaves and debris, leading to water overflow and associated damage.

Protecting only the solar panels would likely cause the birds to migrate to the gutters or roof spaces, as they don’t often leave a nesting site area once established. Therefore, there was a need for a comprehensive solution that addresses both the solar panels and the gutters.

Need commercial gutter guard installed?


ScreenTech recommended the installation of GutterMesh along with the Solar Mesh Standard Kit. The GutterMesh would prevent leaves and debris from clogging the gutters and deter the Indian Mynas and Pigeons from nesting there, while the Solar Mesh Standard Kit would protect the solar panels from birds and vermin while allowing sunlight to reach the panels.
