Seagull Problems

 

 

Seagulls, Larix spp., are graphic nuisance birds that create negative consequences on selected sites. Three behaviors: feeding, roosting and nesting, can all happen on man-made sites. Most sites that have sea gulls are close to large bodies of water, but the infested site may be miles inland.

The most problematic issues of gulls are their gregarious behaviors: they wish to be in groups, which increase the consequences. In addition, gulls cannot perch and need flat surfaces, and thus prefer flat roofed buildings, parking lots, airport runways and landfills.

One behavior which accelerates gull messes is their ability to swallow large “chunks” of food, digest the nutritive parts and regurgitate the non-digested elements. Gulls feeding in landfills can drop thousands of pounds of bones on roosting sites.

In gull nesting sites and roosting locations, feather deposits are excessive, and thousands of pounds of feathers can collect. If on a building, these feathers will plug drains and create major water damage risks.

Fogging with Fog Force makes gull control simple and cost-effective. Large surfaces can be swept clear with oz. of product. Gulls react graphically, and in roosting sites populations can be relocated in a week!

Fogging nesting locations prior to egg drop will motivate females to move the rookery and stop the negative consequences for that year.
