What do gulls look like?
Gulls typically have black wingtips, white bodies, and a darker mantle, which can range from grey to black. They can weigh up to 4 pounds. Their wingspan ranges from 2’ to 5.5’, while their length ranges from 10” to 2.5’. They are opportunistic feeders that search for food in the water, from other birds, landfills, restaurants, trash cans, and pretty much any item left on the ground.
Where do gulls perch and nest?
Gulls generally nest on the ground near a source of water.
Gulls’ webbed feet limit their ability to grip surfaces well. Thus, they frequently perch on railings or flat surfaces that allow them to balance. They can be seen on piers, pilings, docks, marine facility railings, structures on boats and ships, oil and gas rigs, buoys, channel markers, light poles, and many other places where they can rest, loaf, and look out for food.
Why do I need gull control?
Gulls are troublesome birds that create issues for airports, lighting piers, and marine facilities. Gull droppings not only pose a dangerous slip and fall risk, but also require a tremendous amount of cleanup. Further, if found near airfields, gulls present a serious risk for bird strikes and collisions, which can lead to severe damage or loss of life. Seagull control should be taken into consideration for various situations at factories, aviation, ports and boats.
