Daily Walkway & Entryway Dropping Removal
One of the biggest complaints we hear in regards to Canada geese are their droppings. A single goose can create up to 2.5 pounds of droppings per day! Not only is the feces unsightly, but they can carry parasites like Giardia, Cryptosporidium, Coliform, and Campylobacter. These parasites can be transmitted to adults, children, and pets. Another unsightly side effect of goose droppings is the possible stains and odor that occur in entry ways and carpets. That's why all of our management programs include a daily walk and entry way clearing.
When done properly, goose nest removal and egg depredation, also referred to as egg addling, oiling or shaking, is recognized by PETA and HSUS as a humane and effective method to help lower populations over a period of time. Programs like Geesepeace have been formed in areas with severe population issues. Egg depredation is used in conjunction with other abatement programs, such as border collies and/or GooseJuice applications. Geese return yearly to nest where they were hatched. We will assist you in obtaining the necessary goose damage permits from the Ohio Division of Wildlife.
Aggressive Goose Removal
Due to the fact that Canada geese have lost their fear of humans, they tend to nest in areas located next to walk ways or entrances to buildings and businesses. Geese can become increasingly territorial when establishing a nest or incubating eggs. It is not uncommon to witness customers or employees being attacked when nests are located in high foot traffic areas.
Finding a solution for an aggressive Canada goose is difficult because The Federal Migratory Bird Act protects Canada geese, nests, and young. Under this act it is illegal to alter nests, capture, or physically harm geese without a federal or state permit. We are licensed by the Ohio Division of Wildlife and specialize in permanent goose removal solutions.
The most preferred habitat for Canada geese are large, unobstructed areas of short, well-watered grass close to open water. These features that attract geese also make urban properties such as: golf courses, business parks, apartment complexes, and parks aesthetically pleasing to clients, residents, and employees. The basic principles of habitat modification include: eliminating, modifying, or reducing access to areas that readily attract geese.
Habitat modification alone cannot eliminate a properties Canada goose population, especially if a flock has established residence by nesting and molting in the area. By combining abatement procedures and habitat modification, the goose population is more likely to decrease.

"As a customer through three spring seasons I can attest to Stalk and Awe's value. Our corporate office's goose population has been greatly reduced with few or no goose incidents since their service started. They are always professional and communicative regarding any evident nests, needs for permits, and the season's progression. Their animals are handled with utmost attention while performing their service, and the building occupants have come to enjoy the "show" while they are doing their jobs. I highly appreciate the assistance Stalk and Awe has provided and would recommend them to any colleague."
