Port and Marina Authorities

Port and Marine Authorities Pest Control

Gull ControlIn years gone by, passengers and crew alike often thought a boat to be unlucky if it didn’t have rats on board. Today, attitudes have changed and modern control techniques are employed to keep pests at bay.

Dry land has been no less a problem and ports and marinas suffer from a range of pests, from mice and rats through to gulls and pigeons. The innocent looking gull may be part of the nautical landscape but they can cause unlimited damage.

Blocked drains, leaking roofs, biting insects are just some of the problems they create. Their fouling is extremely corrosive on buildings and is also a slip hazard and adults, protecting their nests, eggs and young can be very aggressive. All these pests present a variety of problems and if left unchecked can have disastrous consequences :

  • Health and Safety Risk to employees and visitors – slip hazard
  • Damage to fabric of buildings – fouling on building
  • Increased Costs – cleaning, repairing damaged
  • Loss of revenue
  • Loss of reputation

At Strathearn Pest Control, we provide a professional service to eradicate and control all types of pests and carry out this work throughout Scotland. We will work with you to eradicate the pest, whether it is through a one-off treatment or the development and provision of a tailored Service Plan.

Our local technician will regularly visit the affected site and :

  • Initially install and and then inspect the preventative measures in place
  • check for signs of pest activity
  • identify any potential risks
  • advise on steps, including proofing, you can take to reduce the risk of pest problems
