Canada geese are migratory birds by nature. But lately, more and more flocks have adapted to becoming residential birds that stay on your property year round. If the birds are allowed to nest in the Spring they are nearly impossible to remove until they have finished molting in Late July – Early August.
Canada geese are a common call in South Carolina throughout the year. Aside from the mess they leave the damage to your lawn, they can also be fairly aggressive during nesting or when rearing their hatchlings.
Our AAAC Wildlife Removal pros are here to help you scare away your Canada geese, clean up the mess, and repair the damage. Canada geese scaring should be initiated as soon as the animal has been discovered in the area and repeated regularly. Call now for a quote!
Canada Goose Damage and Waste
Canada geese are big travelers and hardy birds. You can find them in all sorts of climates. They also happen to like suburbs, farmland and agricultural fields. Wide grassy spaces with lakes and marshes nearby are ideal for grazing and nesting.
While they won’t typically go inside your home, they will definitely damage your gardens and crops through constant grazing, and contaminate bodies of water and public walkways with their droppings. They also have a habit of ruining playing fields and parks, making outdoor sports a health hazard.
It’s particularly important not to feed them, as they will get used to humans and be even harder to get rid of.
Canada Goose Deterrence
The linchpin of our Goose Control program is the successive application of Flight Control Plus. This solution is a humane and effective deterrent that discourages geese from grazing on your property throughout the year. When geese feed on treated turf, they experience a harmless, but effective intestinal reaction. The spray also gives the grass an ultraviolet luminescent quality that only the geese can see. While your grass looks normal (since humans cannot see the ultraviolet spectrum), Geese will understand at a glance that it has been treated and know your grass will cause trouble in their digestive tract.
Our solution conditions your geese to avoid treated areas and encourages them to find new feeding sites where they are less likely to have conflicts with humans. The visual warning coupled with the mild intestinal reaction equals a threat with consequence.
This program requires 4-6 treatments the first year, and less each following year as you train geese off your turf.
