Seagulls and Gull Control


Gulls are medium to large birds, usually white or grey in colour. They are carnivores and nest in large and dense colonies. Despite the fact that it is widely called a seagull, gulls rarely venture far out to sea. Most gulls are shorebirds and are often found around the coast. They also thrive in human habitats and are most of the times found in towns and cities near the coast.

A gull can be considered as a pest bird, because they can transmit harmful bacteria, such as E. Coli, to people through their droppings. This pest bird can also attack people for food or, if it feels that its nest is being threatened by someone. Seagulls can also be extremely noisy, especially when they are in a large colony.

Gulls use roof materials to build their big nests. They can also block chimneys or gutters. For this reason, pest control with a bird deterrent is considered essential for houses or offices in coastal areas. More importantly, pest control in UK is necessary, since the number of gulls breeding on rooftops is increasing by nearly 30% a year.

Only three species of seagulls are considered to be pests: the Greater Black-Backed gull, the Lesser Black-Backed gull and the Herring Gull. UK pest controllers have to be able to distinguish the difference between the pest seagulls from the protected ones and take the appropriate action to control the birds.

If you have seagull problems and pest control is needed, then a bird repellent is better placed by a pest control expert. The only thing you have to do if you are in need of seagull pest control is contact a pest control company below.
