Gulls are a high profile issue and increasingly urban property and areas need to be protected from the disruption and menace that gulls bring.
Effective gull deterrents may involve the use of one or a combination of methods. The choice of an effective gull 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 a number of gull deterrent solutions that can be effective and will safeguard your property, staff, visitors and the public.
• Falconry Gull Deterrent Programme
• Egg & Nest Removal
• Gull Proofing
• Laser Dispersal
• Audio Deterrent System
For gull deterrents to be effective, it should be planned around the gull breeding season to ensure gull problems are prevented before property damage, injury or health and safety issues occur.

Whichever gull deterrent method is used it must be done legally. Gulls, like all UK birds, are protected by the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 and it is illegal to remove their eggs and nests or disturb them once they have begun nesting. There are exceptions however, so gull control is possible under certain licence conditions depending on the risk, the gull species, and the timing of the gull management plan.
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!!”
