Looking out of your office window over the past week you could be forgiven for thinking that spring is a long, long way away, but actually there are only 68 days to the official start of spring.
As you know 'Time Flies', so now is a good time to prepare for any possible problems from Britain's 100,000 breeding pairs of urban seagulls.
Last summer 'Killer Seagulls' featured on the national news, with lots of cases of aggressive gulls attacking people. What the gulls are actually doing is defending their new-found territory and protecting their young.
They have taken advantage of landfill sites and the food waste found on our streets, and have become an inland feature nesting in towns and cities. This has brought them into conflict with us, particularly in spring and summer when they have young with them.
Apart from being aggressive, their guano is caustic and will damage buildings and vehicles, and they are a health hazard carrying diseases which range from Salmonella & E.Coli through to Psittacosis and Fungal Infections.
Bad news for any business - but especially so in the food industry where you can face an immediate Stop Notice from Environmental Health.
The good news is that here at Contego we offer a full-range of services to protect you and your business.
These have been developed from our many years as leading industry experts dealing with nuisance birds in a non-lethal way.
Birds of Prey - We use our trained hawks to patrol your property and unsettle the gulls so that they move to a quieter area elsewhere. Environmentally friendly, it can be undertaken in conjunction with bird scarers to offer a Green Solution to your problem.
Bird Spikes & Netting - these will prevent gulls and pigeons from gaining access to your roof and deprive them of a suitable nesting site. This can offer a permanent solution after the problem birds have been relocated and will prevent their return.
Egg & Nest Removal - If birds have already gained access then we can remove their nest and block their access points.
Now is the time to assess whether you are likely to have a problem. One of our experienced technicians will carry out a free survey of your site and recommend the best option for your business.
