NBC have over 30 years of experience of bird control, especially seagulls, which can be a real nuisance and health hazard. Effective seagull deterrent solutions may involve the use of one or a combination of methods. The choice of an effective seagull deterrent will depend on the environment, business, and population size but most crucially timing. Due to legal requirements, measures should be in place before the gull breeding season begins in March each year or after the nesting season finishes in September.
There are many different techniques we use to deter seagulls from buildings, boats, roofs, chimneys, and other areas.
Using falcons and hawks to change seagulls behaviours and deter them from visiting your site, is a natural and effective solution. Find out more about our Birds of Prey Pest Control Service.
We use a highly effective electric bird deterrent system that works on all nuisance birds. Visit our Avishock System page to find out more.
This technology uses high powered beams that deter seagulls and other pest birds. It’s used mainly in industrial, aerospace, and urban areas. See more here about the Agrilaser deterrent system.
Bird wire installations are highly effective at keeping seagulls and other birds away from ledges, by using a system of barely visible wires and springs. Read our Bird Wire Installations page to see our expertise in this area.
The gel gives off an ultra-violet light, combined with a smell and taste, that deters seagulls and other birds from the area. It’s a non-toxic, long lasting, and non-harmful solution. Find out more about our Bird Repellent Gels.
This is a versatile and humane/non-lethal method of deterring seagulls and other birds, using pointed wires that are available in different designs. See full information about our bird spike installation service.
Our bio-acoustic systems deter seagulls from your area by using bird distress or bird of prey calls. If you’re interested, then see our Bird Scaring Service for more information.
All birds’ nests and their eggs are protected by law and can only be removed with a license. NBC are leading experts in bird management and can advise and help legally remove seagull nests. You can see more on our Bird Nest Removal page.

We are always proud of our high standards and love our client feedback.
“We called in NBC on short notice to advise us and the client on the best way to over come our problem. NBC gave us good advice and helped us over come all our issues on our short time frame.
The operatives that visited site and completed the work were very knowledgeable, and helpful. Look forward to working with NBC again.”
“We first approached NBC in 2015 as a large colony of gulls had taken residence on our roof. These gulls were causing a health and safety issue by dive bombing drivers, defecating over vehicles and sometimes members of staff.
NBC came in and recommended a bird control programme. This has been in place for 5 years and we have seen a dramatic reduction in numbers with the colony now being pushed away into the surrounding area – this has been a great investment for our company. NBC’s staff have always been knowledgeable, helpful and highly skilled when carrying out their work – I would strongly recommend them to any business.”
“I would just like to say thank you to your team for the netting installations and the excellent workmanship. We are more than happy with it and will definitely be using you again!!”
