Ersatz Eggs - An environmentally friendly & humane method of reducing seagull populations in our towns and cities
Gull populations are increasing in urban environments and nuisance populations continue to grow.
Traditional attempts to control urban gull populations are either undesirable, unsuccessful or both.
Recent scientific studies have proven that urban gulls will accept plastic imitation/synthetic eggs in place of their own in the nest. Whilst incubating the imitation eggs, the gulls are quiet and less aggressive. The imitation eggs are easy to deploy and are reusable the following year.
In the long term nuisance populations will naturally decline whilst the issue has been managed in an environmentally friendly and humane way.
