GULL & SEAGULL CONTROL
Gulls, or Seagulls, are present on every continent in the world including Antarctica. There are at least 28 species in North America alone, with well over 50 known species worldwide.
How to Get Rid of Gulls
The most effective gull and seagull control methods are using our Extra Tall (“Seagull Spikes”) Bird Spikes, electronic devices including the BroadBand PRO (both sonic and ultrasonic), Ultrason X (silent ultrasonic only), BirdXPeller PRO (sonic only), as well as Irri-Tape and visual deterrents such as Terror Eyes. If your problems is with gulls landing on bodies of water, like retention ponds or lakes, another option is Floating Bird Balls, which completely cover the water’s surface and prevent gulls from landing and swimming.
While birds rarely pose any real risk to humans, they are often feared by tourists because they can carry parasites, diseases and germs including Escherichia coli (E.Coli) and Salmonella, while their waste can carry Psittacosis and fungal infections including Histoplasmosis and Cryptococcosis), and are often perceived as “dirty” because they are opportunistic and not above foraging through trash, landfills, and other sources of waste.
Gulls are protected by law in most areas of the United States as well as worldwide, and respond best to humane treatments that simply annoy them into moving away from treated areas.
