Seagulls

Certain bird species, such as seagulls, can present a significant nuisance when found in inappropriate locations – just ask anyone who has experienced birds roosting or nesting on their business premises. Not only can they inflict considerable damage, but they can also transmit diseases.

While seagulls are often associated with coastal areas, they are known to nest in various environments and vigorously defend their nests – even resorting to aggressive behavior towards perceived threats to their offspring. It’s worth noting that technically, there is no distinct bird species referred to as the ‘seagull’; the term commonly applies to the Herring Gull, the most prevalent seabird along the shores of the UK.

Gulls become problematic when they establish nests on buildings. Their droppings, vocalizations, and territorial behavior pose significant health and safety concerns.

Did you know?

Herring Gulls are the most common gull around Britain’s coasts and seaside towns.

The larger species of gull take four years to mature.

Gulls demonstrate complex methods of communication and have a highly developed social structure.

The Greater Black-Backed Gull is the largest gull in the world.

Gull prevention

To prevent gull problems, we recommend proofing properties when pest gulls have finished nesting and have left the site. We carry out ‘proofing’ work which involves using different methods such as blocking entrance holes or installing nets, sprung wire systems or bird repellent systems that discourage birds from landing and roosting..

Pigeons

Often dubbed as ‘rats with wings’ and widely disliked, feral pigeons can pose a pest problem when they choose to nest or roost on your property.

Unlike gulls, they are not known for their aggressiveness; however, the primary issue they present is their droppings. These droppings attract insect pests and have the potential to spread harmful infections. Additionally, wet droppings on slick surfaces can pose significant hazards, aside from being unsightly.

Furthermore, pigeons carry mites and fleas. In addition to bird-proofing your premises to prevent bird entry, our services include the thorough removal and proper disposal of all droppings, which can accumulate to several feet in properties left unattended. Our goal is to leave your property clean, orderly, and fortified against future pigeon-related issues.

Did you know?

Pigeons can fly up to 40 or 50 miles per hour and may fly as far as 600 miles a day.

Racing Homing Pigeons have been clocked flying 92.5 mph average speed on a 400 mile race.

Scientists believe pigeons may hear wind blowing over mountains from hundreds of miles away.

Pigeon prevention

The solution is usually straightforward – prevent the pigeons from roosting on your home or office.

In the fight against roosting pigeons, our bird team has a variety of effective deterrents at their disposal. What will work for you depends on the scale of the problem and the way the problem is manifesting itself.

Our aim is to deter roosting pigeons, rather than physically capturing them. Our methods include: hanging netting over sections of the building to prevent the birds reaching their perch; or, achieve the same result by using spikes and sprung wires; or, if you wish to minimise the visual effect of the bird protection, we may be able to use Bird Free gel, which reflects ultraviolet light and appears as flames to a pigeon but is invisible to our eyes.
