Daddi Long Legs do the job

An airport parking lot in New York was experiencing a major problem with seagulls. The birds were roosting on the light fixtures afterward. This started to become a problem as bird strikes increased at the airport. A bird strike is the collision of a bird and aircraft, usually with the engine. This a safety threat to the passengers. DaddiLL Close LgThe maintenance crew at the airport parking lot contacted a bird control company that they had used in the past. The crew already knew what they wanted to use; Bird Barrier’s Daddi Long Legs could solve their problem.

Daddi Long Legs are stainless steel rods that rotate in the breeze and wave menacingly, interfering with birds’ wings as they attempt to land. This product is ideal for protecting light fixtures and HVAC units where the seagulls were roosting.

 

The bird control company used a bucket truck to access the light fixtures and install the Daddi Long Legs. About 80-100 Daddi Long Legs of our various sizes of 4,6, and 8 feet were used on this two person job. The job took about 65 hours and the customer was very pleased with the results.

 

Daddi Long Legs are ideal for seagulls and larger birds in light-medium pressure situations. The plastic base can be screwed into most surfaces and a PVC base adapter is available for glue-on applications. When placed together in groups, make sure to overlap the tips between 4-6 inches.

Daddi Long Legs are practically invisible in the distance as you can see in the picture. Following our trend of humane products, the plastic tips prevent injury to birds and humans alike.

You can even place Daddi Long Legs on areas of your boat that are being attacked by birds!

Seagulls in the winter?

With the cold weather approaching, you would think all birds would be flying south. Unfortunately, for a townhouse complex in Tinton Falls, New Jersey, hundreds, if not thousands of seagulls are flocking to the rooftops of the development. The town recently held a meeting to discuss the situation and how to resolve it.

“At least 25 residents came out to the Tinton Falls Borough Council meeting on Tuesday to relay to officials the scary details of trying to live their lives surrounded by the feathered interlopers, which includes feces-covered cars, patios and furniture and children unable to play outside,” reported Amy Brynes from the Eatontown-Tinton Falls Patch.

The situation has become so severe that the odor permeating from the bird droppings has caused the residents to shut their windows. The main source of the the seagull’s stay is the neighboring landfill and the Monmouth Regional Health Commission is doing everything they can to eliminate any type of food source.

“In a natural environment they are wonderful things,” a resident said of the gulls, “Here, they present a health hazard.”

Anchovies, anyone?

In Santa Cruz, Calif., humpback whales, which can measure up to 50 feet long are attracting not only onlookers, but hundreds of hungry seagulls.

The whales feed on anchovies which then escape closer to the surface, giving the seagulls a clear shot to dive in and fill their bellies.

This mess of a situation has caused a boat to flip over and a sailboat to be stricken.

Check out the story here and the video below where a woman is almost swallowed by the whale!

Attack of the 100 Foot Seagull

MSN9news reported that “giant” seagull invaded the studios of Channel 9 six o’clock news in Melbourne. The veteran newscaster, Peter Hitchner, was reading a story about a 1982 murder, when a “giant” seagull walked across the projection behind Hitchner, ultimately caused by a camera shooting a real-time cityscape of Melbourne. Hitchner, unphased by the seagull’s antics, continued his report.

“I was reading away, and it was a serious story, and I suddenly thought, ‘Oh my gosh that seagull’s back again’, because we had bit of a problem last night,” he told Melbourne radio after the bulletin.

“About 50 seconds to six o’clock this seagull arrived and started pecking at the camera and it had the beadiest huge eyes you’ve ever seen in your life.”
