Ohio Geese Control’s No Harm, No Fowl Policy
Ohio Geese Control can help you control your Canada geese population in a safe, humane and highly affective manner. Geese are probably the most adaptable and tolerant of all native waterfowl. As their populations have increased, and man has encroached on their natural habitat, a conflict between man and geese was certainly inevitable.
Limit the amount of food sources.
- Stop feeding the geese
- Let grass grow taller (at least 6 inches)
- Keep tall grasses (at least 18 inches) around ponds
Increase wariness of predators on site.
- Use dense tall plantings along shorelines
- Add variety to landscaping with clumps of taller plantings
- Locate ball fields and other grassy expanses as far from open water as possible
- Maintain stands of trees so geese do not have easy access to water
- Use harassment techniques such as border collies
Border collies’ wolf-like glance and natural ability to herd convinces the geese that there is a predator on site. With consistent use, geese will feel too unsafe to stay at that location. – Jeff Hower, President, Ohio Geese Control, www.ohiogeesecontrol.com
According to The Humane Society, the most effective way to scare geese away is with trained goose-herding dogs. Herding dogs convince geese they are not safe from predators. Only trained dogs working with a handler should harass geese. Dogs should never catch or harm geese.
