Canada Goose Solutions

As graceful as they appear in flight, Canada Geese pose a costly nuisance for many property owners. A growing number of national wildlife organizations suggest taking an “integrated” multi-faceted approach to deter geese. Altering geese behavior continues to be more effective than lethal or harmful means. Identifying and altering/removing the “geese-attractive” features of your property, combined with professional grade goose repellents/deterrents, comprise the most effective way to solve your Canada Goose problem.

 

About Canada Geese
 
Canada Geese are large water birds with a long neck, large body, large webbed feet, and a wide, flat bill. They have a black head with white cheeks and chinstrap, black neck, tan breast, and brown back. With a wingspan from 4.2 to 6.1 feet, they can weight up to 14 pounds. They are found near lakes, rivers, ponds, or other small or large bodies of water. The birds graze on submerged aquatic vegetation by reaching under the water with their long necks. Wild food plants include pondweed, bulrush, sedge, cattail, horsetail, clover and grass. They will also eat agricultural crops, including alfalfa, corn, millet, rye, barley, oats, and wheat.
 
 
Why Goose Control?
 
When grazing in fields and large lawns, they can leave large amounts of droppings in their wake and denude large swaths of grass. This can create a costly nuisance for golf courses and parks. Considering the labor, time, and resources needed to simply reseed a lawn that has been damaged by Canada geese, property owners are not hesitant to deter these big birds. Geese can quickly lay waste to urban and suburban lawns, golf courses, business parks, city parks, and recreational fields, which provide excellent forage for resident and nonresident populations of these birds.

How to Get Rid of Geese

There are many humane options for deterring geese from invading your property. It’s important to thoroughly clean up any bird droppings or nesting materials before any repellent/deterrent products are installed (geese are attracted to the scent of their droppings and nests).

 

• Clear away reeds or plants. Canada Geese prefer a secure, protected area for nesting. Removing tall reeds or vegetation can help decrease a goose infestation.

• Increasing the angle of an embankment near water can help discourage geese from entering your property.

 

Remove any food source

 

Geese are grazers and generally attracted to areas near water that provide an ample food source like grass. Treating lawn areas with Avian Control Bird Repellent discourage geese and convince them to look for a new food source.

 

Scare Tactics

 

Sound deterrents such as the Goose-B-Gone Super Sonic broadcast recorded goose distress and predator calls to scare geese from large open spaces.

 

Humane Removal/Professional Installer

 

If you don’t have the time, resources or expertise to solve your goose problem, a number of wildlife and pest control companies offer bird control as a service. These professionals can install bird control products and offer other services such as clean-up and humane trap and goose removal.
