100% better results than egg oiling, that is what the survey said. Our imitation seagull eggs can humanely and cost effectively control and reduce aggressive and expanding urban seagull populations.
Gull populations are increasing in urban environments and nuisance seagull populations continue to grow.
Traditional attempts to control urban seagull populations are either undesirable, unsuccessful or both.
Whichever seagull pest control method is used it must be done legally. Seagulls are protected by the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 and it is illegal to remove their eggs and nests or disturb them once they have begun nesting.
Recent scientific studies have proven that urban gulls will accept plastic imitation/fake 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 seagull pest populations will naturally decline using this method of seagull population control, whilst the issue has been managed in an environmentally friendly and humane way.
