Despite being protected by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1916, the Canada geese population had a dramatic drop in numbers due to late ice in nesting grounds and hunting season being opened during the migratory season. Late ice, as late as June in the nesting areas, caused poor succession of goslings.
Fortunately, rumors of extinction were exaggerated; conservation measures paid off, and the Canada geese are now abundant - very abundant.
However, as the geese become more and more abundant, they also become a problem in many areas, especially parks, golf courses, corporate grounds, and lakes. They like water, plenty of food (especially short, tender grasses), and open spaces where it's easy to watch for predators while they nest and raise their young. When you add well-meaning citizens who feed these birds to the mix, the geese become accustomed to human contact and it’s easy to see why they continue to gather in these areas and make themselves at home.
Unfortnately, geese can be rude, noisy, and sometimes aggressive. They're not familiar with the concept of bathrooms – instead they leave behind an ever-growing amount of feces, which can pose a serious health risk if it gets too out of hand. Their constant grazing and debris also creates several maintenance problems.
Geese are also bold, and will harass humans for food, especially if they're used to being fed by people. Just don't expect any gratitude around nesting season when you inadvertently wander too close to their nests or goslings. Hell hath no fury like a goose protecting her young.
So what can you do when the town park, golf course, or even your front lawn has been overrun? What recourse do you have when you can't see the grass under the cover of goose droppings?
Goose-repellent chemicals don't always work, and streamers or other "goose-frightening" props will alter the appearance of your property.
The Geese Police, on the other hand, are the perfect solution.
Using our trained working Border Collies, we'll run those geese out of town without harming them.
