Unlike many other pest bird species, Gulls introduce professional pest controller with two very different and severe challenges. Firstly, gulls do not settle in a single centre of activity, are highly adaptable and are often making a round trip of 100km in search of food in a matter of hours. Secondly, they are considerably more intelligent than most pest birds and despite the best efforts of some professionals to prevent or remove them, colonies have continued to expand.
Our local technicians are experienced in providing a range of bird-proofing solutions to combat gull infestations in homes and businesses. Using certified Pest Control methods we can treat high-density Gull populations quickly and effectively starting with a FREE Prokill Pest Control Audit.
Several recent studies have shown that gulls carry disease organisms which cause food poisoning in humans and spread them in the environment. Organisms such as Salmonella spp, , vibrio cholerae spp, listeria spp, Escherichia coli are routinely carried by Gulls and distributed by way of their faeces. In 2003 an E-Coli outbreak caused the death of 20 elderly people in Scotland and the situation was caused by gulls contaminating water sources with both Salmonella spp. and E-Coli 0157.
