Gull colonies in Southern Ontario have adapted to urban people environments often causing unsurmountable damage to structures and causing potential health and welfare issues to people, property and process in these environments. As they perch and nest on structures (which simulate their natural shoreline habitats) they often introduce hazardous material in critical environments, accumualte droppings containing numerous pathogens and bactieria, and deter from the structural integrity of buildings with roof damage and dropping staining. The gulls are migratory birds, which means they are protected species under the Migratory Bird Convention Act, and when causing damage to structures or process, can be controlled under permit.
Integrated tools often include:
Mobile distress call system
Pyro technics (via handheld launcher)
Osprey hawk bird of prey (additional feature)
Avian dissuader laser light- highly effective at dusk and twilight hours
Live birds of prey
Solar panel and TPO roofs are our specialty focused roofs. These roofs pose a significant challenge to gull control, however our strategic approach has proven itselft over and over again in removing the
hazards and preventing re-occurence from these and other other roof surfaces.
Marina’s and municipal docks also share similar issues with gulls and again our programs have designed to remove the Hazards associated with gulls and maintain a healthy balance between them and people.
