Seagulls - Autumn Property & Building Maintenance
As autumn begins to draw closer you will have noticed that Seagull Breeding Season is over for this year.
Strong anti-gull sentiment intensified over the summer when the gulls were associated with attacks on humans, including pensioners and young children. "Killer gulls" were blamed for the death of a Chihuahua dog in May, and a tortoise in August.
All that remains are the sore sighted empty nests, chick fouling and associated debris that can have a negative impact on the gutters and roofs of your buildings and commercial properties. Seagull fouling on pitched roofs will eventually be washed into your gutters risking blockages. External overflowing is very common, however so is internal flooding damage which can be expensive to correct.
We at Eco Environmental believe that now is the perfect time to intervene and that deterring your buildings with one of our bespoke systems below will make for a quieter and safer spring/summer period the next year.
Eco Environmental work closely with owners/occupiers of commercial buildings that may require a suitable, non-harmful, effective Bird Deterrent System that would help to reduce or break-up the colonies of birds.
The main successful principal methods of deterrence we offer are:-
- Supply & install of UV stabilised Bird Netting to prevent birds entering balconies or nesting on exposed roof areas.
- Supply & install of Bird Spike to prevent gulls roosting and nesting on windowsills, gutters or ledges of buildings.
- Supply & install of Bird Wire to prevent the seagulls from landing on roof-tops, window ledges, and air-conditioning units.
Eco Environmental operate on a nationwide basis. Please contact us on 01752 669009 or visit us @ www.ecoltd.net to arrange your free commercial site survey that is always accompanied by our bespoke Method Statements & Risk Assessments.
Our operatives are IPAF, PASMA and CSCS trained ensuring that we are qualified to operate a comprehensive range of high access equipment.
