Ring-billed Gull Profile

Gulls are seabirds. They are most closely related to the terns, and more distantly to the waders, auks and skimmers. They are in general medium to large birds, typically grey or white, often with black markings on the head or wings. They have stout, longish bills and webbed feet. The term gull refers to members of a group of 23 North American bird species that belong to the family Laridae, subfamily Larinae. Gulls are robust birds with webbed feet, long wings and a slightly hooked beak. They all possess exceptional flying ability. They are often seen swimming, and occasionally dive underwater. Adult gulls are white, with varying patterns of gray and black over the back, wings, and head. The young of larger species are often gray and take several years to develop adult plumage. The sexes are similar in appearance.
The ring-billed gull call is a high-pitched, repeated "hiyak-hiyak"

Gull & Seagull Problems

Increasing gull populations in North America during the past century have led to a variety of problems for different segments of society. Gulls cause damage to agricultural crops and threaten human safety at and near airports. They are involved in more collisions with aircraft than any other bird group because they are numerous and widely distributed. The presence of gull roosts near reservoirs increases their potential for transmitting diseases to human populations. Gulls occasionally cause a nuisance when they nest on rooftops and seek food from people eating out-of-doors. Gulls are predators of several seabirds during the breeding season. Expanding and colonizing gull populations may have detrimental affects on the breeding performance of these other, often preferred, species.

Gull & Seagull Control

Bird Net and Bird Gel are effective products for eliminating roosting on ledges, roofs and signs. To repel gulls from feeding sites such as dumps, a wide variety of audio and visual products are available like Bird Bopper visual deterrent. BirdXPeller Pro and BroadBand Pro are high tech multiple and random sound distress call units to scare away gulls. These products should be combined with exclusionary products such as BirdNet and Steel Bird Spikes for maximum control. Bird Deflector is effective repelling seagulls from boats and docks. Bird Hazers like the Tweetzilla and Portable Moby Hazer can discreetly keep birds away from public places.

See our complete list below of recommended bird deterrent products to repel seagulls and other water fowl.

A "synergy" or combination of bird repellent products typically offer the most successful solution for repelling gulls and seagulls. For bird control solutions, we often recommend using companion products by combining electronic sonic repeller devices or bird hazers with visual scare deterrents, physical bird barriers or scent and taste aversion products. This kind of multi-sensory attack is extremely effective in deterring pest seagulls for good!
