Many marinas, wharves, industrial sites and landfills have ongoing problems with seagulls of various species. In most cases the problem is simply that the seagulls' droppings create an unsightly mess for tourists and local residents.
In some situations however, this can be a serious potential health hazard.
Many councils are concerned by seagulls picking up food scraps in landfills and flying off with them - then dropping them in backyards and on roofs creating another potential health risk, especially for those with rainwater tanks.
Seagulls are tough predators and until recently have been very hard to move.
Bird Gard's latest marine bird deterrent, Super Pro X, is extremely effective and when used in conjunction with Bird Gard Laser, provides the best and most up to date means of removing and keeping out seagulls.
Bird Gard now have a small compact, "all-in-one" device called Marine Pro, which is ideally suited to repel sea birds from moored boats, jetties and marinas. It's basically a junior version of our large model Super Pro X.
The seagulls two main senses are exploited. The Super Pro X is an acoustic device (hearing) and the Bird Gard Laser a visual device (sight).
