Controlling seagulls is becoming an increasing problem in the UK. Populations of seagulls have grown significantly, especially in urban areas, where they have been extremely successful in adapting to the environment. There are several reasons for this:
- The large volume of buildings provides safe nesting environments away from predators.
- Plenty of waste food available for them to eat around bins, public waste sites etc
- City and town centres stay relatively warm during winter months so they don’t need to migrate.
The growing legions of seagulls have brought with them a set of problems that on many occasions we have had to deal with. These problems include:
- Lots of noise caused by calling gulls
- Build up of droppings causing significant health and safety hazards
- Dive-bombing and swooping on people and pets
- Blocking gas flues with their nesting activity
- Blocking gutters and damaging property
We would confidently recommend Pestbusters as a solid reliable company who are experts in their field.
Seagulls also carry several diseases which can cause significant health problems for humans such as E.coli, salmonella and listeria.

The law concerning the control of seagulls
It is illegal to kill or do anything that will cause suffering to gulls. If you are experiencing a seagull problem at your home or business then please do not try to solve the issue yourself. Doing this would be potentially dangerous as well as illegal. Always call in professionals to handle the problem for you.
