- Damage to buildings: when seagulls decide to nest at your facility, it often comes with problems. Their droppings and nesting materials are acidic and can stain vehicles, signage and building fronts.
- Health risk: seagull guano (droppings) carry a range of diseases with them, and if they choose to nest near ventilation or rooftop appliances, the health risk is amplified.
- Noise: during the nesting season from March till September gulls are extremely loud.
- Maintenance cost: cleaning buildings, signage and vehicles regularly brings with it costly maintenance.
