Signs to Watch Out For
Whilst it may seem a strange question to ask given the seemingly obvious presence of gulls, would you know exactly what to look out for and what gulls can cause? Read on for further information.
Noise Pollution – Gulls are certainly not the quietest of birds. Having gulls nest in or around your property can result in a huge amount of unwanted noise.
Unpleasant Smells – Gulls are known to eat anything and everything that they come into contact with. The result of this is their droppings have a really bad smell and can be highly corrosive and harmful to human health.
Damage to Property – The mess that gulls can create over a period of time can be quite considerable and ultimately can prove to be very expensive to repair.
Injuries – Gulls are generally very possessive when it comes to their young. There have been reported cases of people being attacked by nesting gulls every time they entered or left their property.
