Seagulls can be found in many more locations than just by the ocean. You can find them hanging out on your roof, in large parking lots, along rivers, and around lakes. Thus, simply referring to them as “gulls” is more applicable. And, because gulls can be found in many locations, particularly locations associated with humans, conflicts arise. For any gull problems in your area, call A All Animal Control of Northern Alabama (256) 975-2014 for Bird Control and Removal in Morgan, Etowah, Marshall, and Madison Counties, AL.
Gulls cause problems in areas such as airports, beaches, and around homes and businesses. They are of the greatest hazard at airports due to their capability of colliding with aircraft, possibly damaging the aircraft and even causing it to crash. Gulls are often fed as a form of amusement along beaches which habituates them to taking food from people – even when people don’t want them to. Gulls are also a nuisance around fishing vessels and barges.
In some areas, gulls will be attracted to populated areas where food is readily available, such as around restaurants and homes. Open garbage cans and dumpsters are also sites of gull congregation where they will take trash from the receptacles and spread it around. This and their droppings are their major causes of conflicts with people in such areas. Droppings can harbor disease, which is of special concern around restaurants and other food distribution locations. A large group of gulls may also generate a great deal of unwanted noise.
If you are experiencing any of these problems as a homeowner or a business owner, contact A All Animal Control of Northern AL today at (256) 975-2014. A Wildlife Professional will work with you to get this problem solved.
