Unlike many other pest bird species, gulls present pest controllers with two very different and severe challenges. Firstly, gulls do not settle in a single centre of activity, they are highly adaptable and can often make 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 seagulls or gulls, colonies have continued to expand.

Seagull problem? Can be more than just their presence.

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.

Gulls (Family Laridae)

Almost every town in the UK and Ireland now has a growing population of roof-nesting Gulls and national papers state that “Gulls may become a greater pest than rats”. Our not so friendly Seagulls regularly feature in the press and stories of gulls terrorising workers on roofs and even striking bystanders on the street, are a regular occurrence – not just in coastal towns. Large Gulls are also regularly reported stealing food from the hands of tourists or protecting their young in an aggressive manner.

This aggressive behaviour, especially during summer time: July and August is now widely publicised, and their nesting and breeding habits can cause severe problems on buildings for all sectors of the community, due to extreme noise, especially during courtship and chick rearing, and blocking down-pipes and gutters with their alarmingly large amounts of excrement.
