Dangers of Seagulls

These birds can be dangerous. They are carriers of hazardous bacteria that can cause infections and disease. Salmonella, listeria, histoplasmosis, cryptococcosis, encephalitis and e coli are just a few of the possible diseases that could be passed on to humans by seagulls. They can result in respiratory and pulmonary problems and some can be fatal. Exposure happens when humans breathe in the bacteria from the dried seagull droppings. There are also mites to consider. Nests from the seagulls are filled with these mites that can bite humans and cause bites similar to bed bugs. They are also very aggressive birds, particularly when scared. They are known for following humans looking for food and when they feel threatened they can attack people. You do not want your business overtaken by these pest birds.
