When urban gulls congregate in urban locations they can cause a variety of problems for businesses. The most common disturbances urban gulls cause are:
• Noise – Gulls tend to be noisy, especially during nesting season from March to September.
• Rooftop nesting – Debris from gull nests can clog downpipes and gutters as well as attract parasites and other unwanted insects.
• Harassment – Gulls are bold and will attack people who they feel threaten their nests, in addition they are known to steal food when given the opportunity.
• Fouling – Gull excrement, otherwise known as guano is unsightly and a potential health risk when near ventilation systems and rooftop machinery.
• Property damage - Seagull guano has acidic properties in it that will cause damage to vehicles or buildings.
• Increased costs – The presence of gulls will increase the cost of building maintenance and cleaning.
