Controlling Pest Seagulls

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009

Pest SeagullsSeagulls are not just an issue along the coastline; they have been known to take up residence hundreds of miles inland.  It seems that they will congregate anywhere there is a viable food source.  They especially like dumps or landfills, and supermarket parking lots; they are the “dumpster diving” bird.  They are not particular at all about what they eat.  On one trip to the beach, I had the pleasure of watching a gull steal a piece of fried chicken out of a bucket and carry it away.  Seagulls will find a secluded spot to spend the evenings and sleep; these include small islands, tall buildings, and even the roof of your home.  Seagulls have been known to travel several miles from where they forage to where they sleep.

Seagull damage:

Not only do seagulls like to land and rest on the roof of your house, your boat or business; they also leave behind their droppings.  Seagull droppings are nutrient-rich waste, a perfect breeding ground for bacteria and other organisms that may cause diseases.  Some if the common disease-causing organisms found in their droppings are E. Coli, Cryptococossis and Histoplasmosis.  Their droppings are also corrosive, causing damage to roofing material, your boat finish and building materials.  Bird droppings are also difficult to clean.
