Pigeons and Seagulls can become a real nuisance to your business; Seagulls are especially protective and aggressive during the breeding season. If the gulls believe their eggs or young are in danger, they understandably become very protective.
Fouling also known as Guano is a recognised health hazard that can carry diseases such as Ornithosis, E.Coli and Salmonella. Furthermore, frequently fouled entrances and pavements can become dangerously slippery when wet. Legal action following an injury can be extremely damaging to business, especially where the public is concerned, insurance only covers a small part of the cost.
