Geese - Need Help

Anyone have a solution on keeping Geese out of your CS?

The first 20-30 min every weekend is goose poop control. There's gotta be a way.

Thanks WK

A border collie would probably work the best. Otherwise might try spreading blood meal in the grass and shrubs to see if they wonder elsewhere.

Around here the farmers use white flags, flash streamers. Basically anything that can flash or move in the wind. We have a bird refuge less than a mile from me, so we have thousands of geese that winter out here. So its a real problem come spring planting time.

Relatives live on a lake. they string chicken wire along the shoreline. Problem solved. when the geese leave they take it down to feed the ducks.

If you are allowed to put up a fence, any low fence will stop them, they won't fly over it just walk around it.

You could also try spreading pepper on the grass, they might not like that and would avoid the area.

Around the greens on the golf course they put stakes around with a yellow rope suspended about 1 foot off the ground. The geese will not fly over or cross it. It's a pretty easy set up. A pellet gun which will drive them off but not kill them will also help. Geese have a good memory and will stay away.

There is a liquid product that contains blueberry extract. Spray on lawn, sidewalks, shore lines, dries invisible, geese will not bother that area any more. It is expensive, in concentrate form. I bought a gallon years ago for $200.00, mixes an once per gal of water. I do not know the name, label is gone. Used on sidewalks at church, it works but needs reapplied after a few weeks or rains.
Check your local Co-Op extensions for advice on where to get it.

Some of the parks in Boston, along the Charles River, use a plastic Coyote. It works wonders. Just move it around every once in a while.

Thanks for the ideas. I'll probably thry them all over the summer.

Do you think a coyote decoy will do anything? or will they wise up and ignore it.

Yes, the Coyote decoy does work. Like I said in another post, just move it around every two or three weeks. A Coyote is the natural predator of the Geese.

Wondering if setting a box labeled "ACME Dynamite" next to the Coyote decoy would enhance the effectiveness.

Around here the business parks use the border collie method. There is a service that comes out one season and chases them away about once a week. It has kept them from nesting in the areas as well. The dog will chase them out of the retention ponds as well so they don't feel safe anywhere. The geese remember and have not really come back in 3 or 4 years now.

The fence and even the rope work as well. They walk from food (your yard) to shelter (usually water) and don't like to fly because they are slow to take off so the rope keeps them from getting to shelter safely.

Best of luck in whatever method you choose.

We stayed in a Cherokee NC area campground that had a small pond and about 500,000 mallard ducks. My wife decided to feed them and we ended up losing my brand new patio mat to tons of runny duck crap.

Hot Sauce

Mix Hot Sauce in a pump sprayer and make an invisible fence around your property. Works for deer. Keep the dog inside too.

Hot peppers are a treat for many birds, they donít taste the heat like mammals do...

Yeah, someone told me to put chili powder in my bird feeders to stop the squirrels. My DW saw the squirrel on the feeder one morning and said she thought she could see it wearing a sombrero and carrying a margarita!

I would suggest keeping the BBQ lit and hot, with a nice big pan greased up ready to go. Hang a couple of butchers hooks in plain site with some feathers lying around and make sure at least one of these beasties disappears every week. They'll get the idea soon enough.

My problem is Grackles,,, they nest in my Pine trees,,, after the young have hatched the adults then clean the nest,,, by dropping the poo on our asphalt driveway !!!
For a couple of weeks in the spring the driveway is soooo covered with poo we have to walk on the lawn to get to the mailbox !!!
