Angus residents are being reminded that a free gull egg and nest removal service will come online later this month.
From Monday, April 14, the free service from Angus Council will be 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. 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 ACCESSLine on 08452 777 778.
