Gull nest removal service launched

people in Angus are reminded that a free gull egg and nest removal service became available for residential properties from Tuesday (April 2).

The service from Angus Council is available to householders and tenants during the period when gulls are typically building nests or have eggs in a nest.

The council is urging residents to get in touch about the service before the eggs have been laid, because treatment cannot be undertaken after they have hatched.

The council’s spokesperson on environmental health issues, Councillor Mairi Evans, said: “I would urge residents to take advantage of this free service which was introduced by the council to help householders who have been troubled by nesting gulls.”

Commercial premises will still be expected to deal with gull nests as part of their general maintenance programme and meet the cost involved.

Residents who require the removal of eggs and nests or would like further information about the service provided should contact the council’s ACCESSLine on 08452 777 778.
