Canada geese often mistake parking lots for ponds from the air and may choose to land. With access to grass and vegetation they may settle in and find a nesting site; this could be on your roof, landscaped planting bed or even a decorative planter near your main entrance. Add in a pond, fountain or any water source and you've got an ideal place for a family of Canada geese to call home.
Canada geese are territorial and can be aggressive to people - your customers, employees and any visitors you may be trying to impress. Goose control and removal is the safest and most humane way to protect your business. Geese are also prolific poopers - each goose can eat 4lbs of grass and vegetation and generate over 2lbs of droppings per day. That's a lot of mess in your parking lots, lawns, entry and employee common areas.
If you provide a cafeteria or coffee shop with outdoor seating, then people will feed the geese and this may make them more aggressive - and more likely to poop in these areas where people are eating leading to potential injury and sickness.
Goose Rangers use trained Border Collie dogs to provide much needed geese control, and to humanely encourage the geese to leave your premises. Using methods endorsed by the Humane Society we identify and eliminate nesting sites and use trained dogs to intimidate and encourage the geese to seek a new home. Geese are never touched or harmed, they are protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, 1918 (MBTA).
By controlling the geese population with our trained Border Collie dogs, the geese are kept from getting too comfortable in their settings—your space. Early in the season, Goose Rangers’ can identify what areas need geese control, the actions needed to remove nests, and the best plan for geese removal—a different location to nest and rear their young.
Your business, office space, retail park, campus or professional building can be goose free, let us show you how.
