The life cycle for geese begins later winter. Goose couples pair up and begin to return to their previous nesting places. Waters are opening up at this time usually. Any non-breeding geese will remain nearby in flocks for feeding during this time as well. Canada geese have a very strong inclination to return year after year to the place they were born, to the same feeding and nesting spots. If you had geese last year, you can be sure to expect them this year unless you implement goose repellents that will keep your property free from the geese and their nasty and hazardous droppings.
There is a choice in the way that you get rid of geese. If you have resident geese, a combination of methods is encouraged. Geese that have been in urban areas have adapted and gotten use to humans and they are not as fearful as they should be.
Two Goose Repellent Choices
A goose deterrent that uses sound is very effective for large open spaces. There are sound goose deterrents that broadcast goose-distress calls. The calls are played at ten minute intervals and this alerts the geese that there is danger and they will want to fly away to a safer spot. A solar powered sonic unit covers an acre of space. With additional speakers, three acres can be covered and protected from the nuisance geese. The units have an LCD display panel that is easy to program and read. It is constructed of a rigid material that is U.V. protected and is sun and weather resistant and made for long lasting outdoor use.
Another type of method that is an effective goose repellent is a motion activated sprinkler. The sprinkler hooks up to an average garden hose. There is an infrared motion sensor that senses the larger pest bird such as geese. It detects them from 35 feet away. Once the geese are sensed, the sprinkler instantly releases a spray of water. The water spray will scare the geese away in fear. They will remember the burst of water and will not want to return to the area. This repellent also keeps the crows and pigeons away. The motion activated sprinkler works day and night. A nine volt battery will keep this bird deterrent in action for at least six months.
The simple use of sound and water will keep geese away from your property. Both products are safe and humane and will not harm the birds or any other animal or persons who come in contact with the goose repellents.
