Canada geese populations in Virginia have exploded in recent years with the proliferation of urban development containing manicured landscaping close to ponds, providing an ideal habitat for these geese.
Canada geese can be aggressive to humans. They are loud and extremely messy, with each goose capable of producing over 2 pounds of droppings per day, on average pooping every 8 minutes. Not only is this waste unsightly, but it also poses a health risk to humans and pets, containing E. coli, salmonella, giardia as well as parasites. The abundance of nitrogen in the poop can also cause an algae bloom in ponds, requiring chemical intervention to reverse.
Canada geese also choose their nesting sites in February and begin to lay eggs in early spring. These geese are already aggressive. However, once they lay their eggs they can become even more aggressive to humans and pets—even hissing and intimidating those who get too close. Goose control and removal is critical to protect your landscape or developing areas during this time. During the months of May through early August, the geese will raise their young and molt their flight feathers. This means they are incapable of flight during that time. They will instead eat your grasses and vegetation, poop, and make a huge mess.
With few natural predators, it is very difficult to control geese population once these geese have found a new habitat. Populations are rising and the recent mild winters are extending breeding season. This problem cannot be ignored. Fortunately, there is a solution.
Goose Rangers, LLC. uses specially trained Border Collies to provide geese control by frightening the geese into believing there are predators present. The Goose Rangers Border Collies provide safe geese removal with their unique wolf-like stalk and a mesmerizing "eye" that move the geese into movement and flight. Our properly trained Border Collies never touch or harm the geese; their intimidating presence is enough to convince the geese to move to a new home. All of our Border Collies swim after the geese as well during the warmer weather, which really gives the geese something to react to! Our methods are endorsed by the Humane Society of the United States, are cost effective, and proven to work.
Goose Rangers, LLC. provides year-round geese control and removal services for business parks, homeowner’s associations, common areas, and individual business operations. Don’t let Canada geese bring their messy and aggressive population to your door. Get rid of geese and reclaim your ground! Contact us for more information or to schedule an appointment.
