What You Need To Know About Gulls

Gulls can cause challenges scavenging for food all year, but predominantly during the summer months when they are raising their young. They become territorial and antagonistic towards people. The Gulls start with a cautioning cry to keep people away from their young, if their cry is not heeded; they swoop low and sound an alarm that draws other Gulls in the colony to assist in protecting their nest site.
