The Granite State has a number of issues with pest birds. Drawn to the area’s landfills, thousands of seagulls often create sanitation problems in Concord and Manchester. In Manchester, gulls fly from garbage dumps to defecate in a reservoir used for drinking water. The Federal Fish and Wildlife Service has been asked to look into the problem.
A Community School in Portsmouth, Hampshire recently had hundreds of scavenging gulls on their playgrounds and sports field. Children dropping food during lunch and recess drew the gulls, creating a health and safety issue. In fact, seagull droppingswere landing on children and staff, and splattering on staff vehicles.
Portsmouth City Council’s environment department fears a pigeon population explosion. Parts of the city are regularly inundated with pigeons, particularly in Fratton, and seagulls, in Southsea, Old Portsmouth and across the city. The numbers of these birds appear to be growing, creating a nuisance as their droppings can spread disease and leave a mess. The council ruled out culling, adding that these birds don’t belong in cities and that both gulls and pigeons are scavengers.
The Agrilaser® uses advanced, patented optical laser-beam technology to harmlessly repel gulls over great distances—up to 2,000 meters. The handheld device is silent and portable. Much like an approaching car, birds perceive the green laser beam as a rapidly approaching physical threat, so they flee the area.
