Gull Patrol offer a specialised bird control service to marinas situated along the Thames.
Gulls can be a particular problem for marinas and boat owners who despair at the unsightly mess and the damage these birds can do to their expensive boats and motor yachts.
Operating from our dedicated river boat our trained hawks fly from the vessel to clear the marinas of the bird pest species.
Pigeons and gulls are a massive problem in our towns and cities.
They cause mess, damage to buildings and are a health hazard.
Harris Hawks are the ideal bird control weapon to scare and control bird pests in town centres, the urban environment and business premises.
Our amazing hawks can successfully operate at factories, industrial parks, schools, warehouses, hotels, sports stadiums, hospitals, domestic property and more.
We have a fantastic team of stunning Harris Hawks with each of our feathered colleagues a valued member of our bird control team.
Harris Hawks are ideal for this type of bird control. They are intelligent, agile, and if well trained, as our hawks are of course, amazingly loyal and obedient.
Our birds are trained to scare pigeons and seagulls, not to attack them. The intention is to clear the area of bird pest species, not to hurt them.
Our handlers have spent, and continue to spend, an enormous amount of time training and getting to know their hawks and have established strong and loyal bonds with their birds.
A lot of pigeons and gulls means a lot of mess.
Pigeons and seagulls are not just a nuisance but they also cause damage to buildings and property.
This can include the dislodging of roof tiles, the blocking of guttering and corrosion to mortar, masonry and surfaces from their acidic faeces.
Their droppings are unsightly and may cause pavements and walkways to become dangerously slippery under foot.
Not least, pigeon and gull mess makes buildings look dirty and unsightly.
Gulls and pigeons are a health hazard.
They can spread bacteria and diseases such as lymes disease, which like many others can be transfered to humans.
The presence of pigeons and seagulls can pose a very real threat to people living or working in close proximity to populations of these pests.
Gulls can be quite aggressive in their territory causing them to mob anything that is deemed a threat to them or their chicks.
This can cause an added risk to public safety as well a domesticated animals such as small dogs and cats.
Flocks of gulls and pigeons can make a lot of noise which is a common complaint from businesses who’s employees find it difficult to concentrate on work with such noise as a distraction to them and their customers.
Every situation is assessed individually by our bird control experts to determine the best way to deal with that particular problem.
Depending on the location, circumstances and severity of the bird pest problem it may be necessary to undertake a longer term flying programme and possibly combine falconry with other methods of bird control.
