Why Do We Need Geese Management?

Canada geese are considered by many to be lovely and wonderful birds. However, they can also be considered a nuisance. Geese have the tendency to gather in a large group called gaggles. When a gaggle occupies one area for an extended period of time they can wreak havoc on a property. Even a small gaggle of geese can cause thousands of dollars in damage to a property in single season.

Besides the property damage associated with geese, they may also create potentially serious environmental and health concerns. Another common complaint associated with Canada Geese are aggressive behaviors; attacks towards pets, small children, adults, and even property.

An Example of Canada Goose Management

Canada Geese possess very predictable instinctual behaviors. These behaviors are directly related to the current “season”.  Looking at the graph below we can see that there are 5 basic goose seasons. We know that around February and March geese begin to pair up and mate. During this time frame, any geese on your property will ultimately nest on your property.

It is proven that applying consistent pressure with trained border collies during this period the geese will believe that the area is no longer safe to nest or raise their young. Therefore, they will choose another area that is safer to nest. By preventing the geese from nesting on the property there won’t be any goslings or adults on the property come April. Each season and management protocol effects the following season or seasons.
