Plymouth seagulls and pigeons are becoming increasingly problematic. More and more people are looking to find a solution to the problems that they cause. As a coastal area with a high population and a busy city centre, the area is a prime target for both gulls and pigeons. From the people eating their ice cream and chips on the Hoe to those enjoying a snack in the City Centre, there is plenty of reason for these nuisance pests to stick around! If you are experiencing a bird problem at your Plymouth property or commercial premises then there are a number of solutions.
From ridding you of the nuisance birds to preventing them nesting and roosting on your Plymouth property the various techniques include:
Hawking – using a falcon or hawk to fly over the area to warn the seagulls or pigeons that this is their territory.
Netting – using mesh and nets to protect the area and prevent seagulls and pigeons landing and setting up home.
Spiking – if you take a look at the spikes it is easy to see why you might not want to nest here if you are a bird looking for somewhere comfortable to make your home!
Bird scaring – this technique involves the use of noises that unsettle the birds. It works particularly well with large flocks but is often not enough to rid the birds as a single technique. Often it is used as part of a variety of methods to move the gulls and pigeons on.
Don’t rely on the problem going away on its own! Even if there are only a couple of birds it’s going to become a problem. Birds lay eggs, the eggs hatch and then you have a bigger problem.
