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.
The Canada Goose can quickly become a problem to any home owner, property owner, golf course grounds keeper or park superintendent. Each year the Canada Goose migrates from north to Canada and the northern Us where it breeds in a variety of habitats. Often times the geese decide to use your property as their breeding ground and grazing site. They can soon destroy your lawn, contaminate your pond and make your property downright dangerous to walk on. Luckily there are humane and effect goose deterrents that will scare the geese away and keep them away from your property.
Types of Goose Deterrents:
Liquid Goose Deterrents use the sense of taste to get rid of the geese. They are made using methyl anthranilate, a grape extract that is sprayed on the lawn to give it a flavor that the geese do not like. This substance irritates the goose’s trigeminal nerves and mucous membranes and causes them to leave the area searching for a better grazing site.
Sound Deterrents - Sound goose deterrents and visual goose deterrents can be used in tandom with the liquid goose deterrents to keep geese off areas that they are a problem. Sound deterrents play LOUD distress and predator calls that when heard by the geese cause them to flee the area for a safer spot to graze and raise their young. Coyote decoys are also effective in scaring geese away. The coyote is a natural predator of geese. They love to go after the eggs and goslings of a mating pair; using the coyote decoys on your lawn will trigger the natural instinct of fear and the geese will leave for a saver home.
Prior to Installing any Goose Deterrents:
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.
