Deterring Pest Birds like Geese from Commercial Property

If you manage a golf course, corporate lawn, private park or commercial greenbelt, large bird pests like geese can pose quite a problem. In addition to their noise and aggressive behavior (they have been known to attack passersby), they can create a huge mess in droppings. Unless these droppings are promptly cleaned up, they can permeate an entire area with a very unpleasant odor. If you’ve ever had a run in with geese, you know that they can trample and destroy flowerbeds and other delicate plants. Geese droppings also carry disease. They can contaminate ponds and other decorative water features on your property.

If your garden, pool or spa area is being invaded by pest geese, you’re going to have a busy spring and summer—cleaning and chasing these pest birds. If you haven’t already discovered, geese are big, aggressive and noisy. And they pretty much go where they feel like it, trampling your flower garden and pooping in your pool, spa or decorative water feature. Goose droppings can cause bacterial and algae problems. And they can carry a number of diseases, including swimmer’s itch, histoplasmosis, toxoplasmosis and giardia.

Golf Course Manager’s “Goose Gets Cooked” over Killing Geese

The Farms Golf Club in Dyersburg, TN plays along several lakes. And where there are lakes, there are Canada geese, which often create major headaches for golf course managers. One Farms manager recently faced the wrath of local residents when he resorted to killing geese that invaded the golf course and adjoining residential area. Grounds crew even resorted to running the geese over with golf carts, which left several of the large birds crippled. The geese were damaging the newly renovated course to the tune of thousands of dollars. Besides angering the local residents, the manger may face big fines for each goose he shot, since killing Canada Geese is a federal offense. On top of that, the manager faces local charges for firing weapons inside city limits.

If you had geese trampling all over your garden and favorite plants last year, this is the time to implement an effective bird deterrent strategy. Besides ruining your favorite plants by physically trundling all over them, geese will leave smelly, disease-carrying droppings everywhere. If you have a pond or other water feature, they will contaminate it with their droppings and turn it into an odorous mess.

So how do you get rid of geese in your garden? You can use a water hose to discourage them, but unless you want to stand there 24/7, they’ll be back as soon as you go in the house. Some people have tried BB guns and poisons, but these methods are far too dangerous—especially if you have pets or children running around.

Fortunately, there are a number of humane and effective goose deterrents that will keep geese out of your garden.
