GULL & SEAGULL CONTROL DEVICES
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
Seagulls can be a serious nuisance. Not only do these pests congregate around humans, garbage dumps and parking lots, but, even worse, they’ve been shown to carry more than 60 diseases. To get rid of them, you need a good gull deterrent — one that’s humane, nontoxic and effective.
The best gull and seagull control products are our Extra Tall (“Seagull Deterrent 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.
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.
For the best results from our seagull deterrent solutions, remove all bird droppings, nesting materials and potential food sources, such as open trash containers. Then, install various types of deterrents to scare and discourage gulls from inhabiting your space.
Gulls are protected by law in most areas of the United States as well as worldwide, and respond best to humane treatments, such as an ultrasonic seagull deterrent, that simply annoy them into moving away from treated areas.
