Gull Control in Worcester City

WRS provides support to Worcester City Council in their work concerning gulls. During the 2019 breeding season a number of measures are proposed which WRS will contribute to:

  • Support for a 'Gull Forum' with Worcester BID and the County Council with the aim of sharing best practice and targeting action amongst businesses and residents in the city.
  • Provision of advice to Businesses, Organisations, landlords and tenants on how to minimise the negative impact of gulls perching or nesting on your property.  Click here for more information on what can be done to your existing property.
  • Management of the existing egg replacement gull control work and identification of any flat and accessible rooves with nests that can be included.  As the approved preferred contractor, Red Kite Pest Control undertake egg replacement work in the inner city centre areas where large numbers of gulls have traditionally nested on rooves that are easily accessible.
  • Facilitate access were possible to hard to treat nests to include in the egg replacement programme.
  • WRS, in conjunction with Red Kite Pest Control, will be considering additional rooves that may be considered for inclusion in an expanded zone of treatment within the City.
  • WRS are overseeing a potential trial on specific visual deterrents to the success of nesting with our contractor Red Kite Pest Control.
  • Promotion of responsible behaviours to discourage gulls from breeding in the city. This is part of an ongoing campaign launched by the Council to include providing advice to the public and businesses. WRS will contribute to assisting with suitable advice and promotion.
