Gulls (Pest Bird Control)

Gull Control in Glasgow

Gull Species, colloquially referred to as Seagulls, are long-winged birds which are medium in size. The birds mostly occur in large flocks and are generally a mixture of light grey and white. The young are a mottled brown colour and will remain so until they develop their adult feathers. Gull Species generally fly with slow wing beats.

There are several gull species of birds which cause problems in the United Kingdom. They include species such as Herring Gull (Larus argentatus), Lesser Black-backed Gull (Larus fuscus), Great Black-backed Gull (Larus marinus), the Common Gull (Larus canus) and Black-headed Gull (Larus ridbundus).

All these species except Common Gull and Black-headed Gull are classified as pest species which means they can be controlled legally. Having said that, all UK birds are protected from lethal control methods under the wildlife protection act. All other species mentioned can be controlled using more definitive means when air safety is concerned.

Gull Species (Laridae) can live up to 25 years. They reach sexual maturity 5 years after birth. They lay their eggs in April or May and will typically produce only one clutch each year containing 2-3 offspring. The young will remain in their nests for 5-6 weeks. Gulls can be particularly aggressive throughout this period.

The Gull Species (Laridae) were mostly associated with coastal towns and cities, but nowadays they have spread to inland towns and cities. They can nest on roofs of hotels, private houses, office buildings, large factories and warehouses.

The birds can fly long distances looking for food. Their food is mostly found on landfill sites, agricultural land, sewerage outlets and scavenging from commercial and urban food waste.
