Seagull Deterrent Systems and Seagull Scarers Services
Seagulls are aggressive and cause a regular nuisance in coastal cities and in more recent years, in inland regions. Large amounts of their bird droppings can result in structural damage and block gutters. The gull's physical size and aggressive nature, especially at times of nesting can also lead to attacks on the general public and employees.
Typical Seagull Behaviour
Seagulls will roost on the highest points of a roof, usually the ridge, chimneys or along the highest flat roof. If you are able to prevent seagulls from landing on these areas they will often leave the property for good. Seagulls are at their noisiest during the nesting season which is April to July. The eggs are usually laid in April or May, with the young gulls hatching approximately 4 weeks later and finally leave the nest after another 5-6 weeks.

Special Seagull Scarers and Deterrents
A number of alternative seagull proofing systems to the three most popular solutions of Birdnet, Birdspike and Birdwire systems are also available to deter and solve your seagull problem.
Gullwire is an ingenious seagull control system deterrent, preventing gulls from landing without entangling them, yet retaining easy access for maintenance staff. The system consists of parallel wires that are installed above the building surface at widths just below the wing span of the gulls, thereby preventing the birds from landing on the area below. This still allows the building occupier access for maintenance purposes.
Daddi Long Legs is another great seagull deterrent, a removable patented seagull control system to protect those areas that require regular access for maintenance or usage. The system has a freely rotating head with long stainless steel wires that bounce in the wind or when birds contact it. This not only irritates the bird but interferes with their attempts to land or take off.
It is easily detachable and reusable, ideal for the boating and marine industry or to protect temporary structures. They can be used on any flat surfaces that require a lot of coverage to keep pest birds away. Ideal for use on AC units, rooftops, boats, posts and other flat surfaces
