We can rid you of Gull problems safely and efficiently
Gulls, also called seagulls, are a group of 23 North American bird species. These intelligent pests can adapt to a variety of habitats and available resources. Consequently, they are one of the few wild animals that have actually expanded their territory and food sources because of human behavior. Since gulls damage houses and present several health risks, they are problematic for homeowners.

Adult gulls have white bodies with gray and black patches over their backs, wings, and heads. The pests are characterized by their webbed feet, long wings, and slightly hooked beaks. Gulls range in size depending on the species, with the herring gull weighing about two pounds, while the great black-backed gull may reach up to four.
Gulls eat a wide variety of foods. These pests are not picky, obtaining much of their food by taking advantage of resources provided by humans like trash cans and landfills. Some species are carnivorous, feeding on aquatic animals, carcasses, and insects, while others may also eat plants and crops. Additionally, many types of gulls eat the eggs and young of others of their own species.
Despite commonly being called seagulls, these pests’ habitats are not limited to coastal areas. Gulls are widely distributed in North America, often sighted in rural regions, agricultural fields, and urban areas alike. Wide, flat spaces with plenty of open ground to land, such as beaches, parking lots, airports, and well-trimmed lawns, attract the pests.
