Hours of Operation: Mon - Fri 8:00am - 8:00pm


Our solution (and preventative measure):
•  Protects wiring from debris, birds, rodents and small animals to better protect your solar arrays.
• Utilizes black clips and black coated wire for a clean, classic look
• Consists of wire gauge that is thick enough to hold up to animals,

yet thin enough to promote airflow under your solar array for maximum production (specifically designed for this!)



Leave the critter removal to the experts!

Got Critters?

It's very rare, but sometimes "critters" make their home under solar panel arrays. If that happens, we will:

  • Professionally remove any debris, nests, even critters!
  • Evaluate your solar energy system for any damage.
  • Repair any damage.
  • Install Solar Critter Stop.

Experience Counts

Our parent company, Built Well Solar, is Long Island's original solar energy company.

We've installed thousands of solar panels, so we understand how to remediate damage that critters such as squirrels and pigeons can do in those rare instances when this occurs.

Our Solar Critter Stop is specifically designed to be installed around a solar arrays, with the sturdiness needed to prevent critters from penetrating, and providing the proper airflow that solar panels for optimal production.

The process is simple:

2. Our technicians will evaluate any current

     critter issues,  and measure the perimeter

     areas around your solar array(s).

3. We'll provide a written estimate.

4. We'll schedule your installation.  

5. DONE!

Squirrels? Pigeons?

It's warm and cozy in the gap between solar panels and the roof, creating an attractive nesting environment for critters. This may happen when habitats change, as when major construction occurs in the neighborhood.

SQUIRRELS. Squirrels have babies early Spring and mid-Summer,  so that's when most nesting issues occur. And, they sometimes chew the wiring in solar energy systems because they are often coated with nut-based or vegetable-based oils they love. They can even chew straight through to expose the wiring, causing damage or even a shutdown of a PV system.

PIGEONS. Known as the rats of the sky, wild pigeons don't damage wiring but their damp nests and debris can damage roof shingles. Also, pigeons can carry disease, leave unsanitary and unsightly droppings, and create a noise nuisance. 

WASPS & OTHER PESTS. Our associated professional exterminators can also help with wasps, bees, other insects or pests on your roof or elsewhere.
