The British Pest Control Association has advised the pest management industry that the deadline is fast approaching for businesses to have their say to help it make the process for getting a licence better.

BPCA said it has the opportunity to positively influence Natural England regarding what happens with gull licensing in 2021.

The association has asked that completed surveys are returned by Saturday, September 26. To do this, the BPCA needs you to download and fill in its scenarios for gull control survey spreadsheet.

The spreadsheet asks you to list all scenarios where you might need to lethally control gulls or interfere with their eggs for the sake of human health and safety.

Everyone who conducts gull work is encouraged to fill in the spreadsheet to the best of their ability. Email the completed spreadsheet to [email protected].

The BPCA pointed out that responses will be shared anonymously with Natural England and potentially other wildlife agencies to help support change in licences for bird control.
