With over twenty years of experience under our belts, you can look no further for a better residential or commercial solutions provider. We understand their behavior, habitat and the nuisance they can become when residing in the wrong areas.
Since the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918, it has been illegal to harm or kill any Canada Geese. Their population has continually risen due to environmental factors such as food availability and changing in surroundings. Canada Geese remain a nuisance because once one flock is removed; another set of Canada Geese will just take their place. Birds Beware Inc has a thorough understanding that the problem with Canada Geese removal lies at the source. We as well as other Geese control or deterrent companies have had plenty of success using non-lethal, humane means of removal. It’s not fair for Canada Geese to get a death sentence when humane, fully effective methods are available to contain the problem.
Residential Canada Geese Removal, Control & Deterrent Solutions
If your residential property or home has a Canada Geese problem, then you definitely require assistance. Where there are Geese, droppings and agricultural damage will always follow.

There is no one particular strategy that is 100% full proof. Birds Beware uses a variety of strategies, research and techniques to get them off your property. This may be through habit modification, exclusion, repellents, chemical fertility control and more directly; finding they’re nests and eggs. Rest assured, with over twenty years in the business you can count on us to devise a solution to solve your Canada Geese headaches.
Commercial Canada Geese Removal, Control & Deterrent Solutions
In comparison to birds, the problem with Canada Geese is that they pose a much more present threat to those around them. They are known to be especially aggressive if they detect any danger from humans to their nest or flock. Canada Geese are also known to frequent areas around airports. This is due to most airports’ close proximity to wetlands, marshes, and short grass. They have been known to end up within Plane engines which are a significant safety issue. With three major airports in the Tri-State Area (Newark, JFK & LaGuardia), this is a problem that needs to be solved consistently. Since they’re known to be aggressive, as a business owner you probably don’t want them around to scare away your customers. Birds Beware Inc has all the right experience and goose chasing dogs available to help solve your problem in a timely, efficient fashion.
Damage And Disease from Canada Geese
Whether you own a residential or commercial property, we’re sure you put lots of care into its landscape on a seasonal basis. The last thing you need is to worry about stepping on Goose droppings, cleaning up feathers or seeing holes in the ground. Canada Geese are known to cause headaches for all kinds of property owners. For example, over 82% of calls made regarding Canada Geese nuisance revolve around the cleanup of their droppings. They flock to places like waterfront communities, parks, golf courses, suburban areas or urban areas providing plenty of fecal contamination.
Speaking of contamination from feces, the problem with Geese congregating within public places has become so bad that some beaches as well as public parks have been forced to close due to the buildup of droppings. Did we mention how much fecal matter Canada Geese drop on average? We’re sure the results won’t please you! A single Canada Goose is known to eat as much as three to four pounds of grass daily. This in-turn creates as much as two to three pounds of droppings per Goose on a daily basis. Now when you’ve got an entire flock of them residing in a public spot, day in and day out, you can start to see how this becomes a major problem. Potential contaminants found in Geese droppings are all human transmittable and can lead to severe food poisoning. These include Salmonella, Escherichia coli, Campylobacter, Listeria, and Chlamydia.
Our Canada Geese Chasing Dogs
One important element in our deterrent toolbox for Canada Geese is the use of dogs. Birds Beware Inc uses highly trained goose-herding dogs to scare them away. A properly trained dog will put Canada Geese in flight and scare them away from the area. An improperly trained dog will simply push them into an additional nearby area or body of water. In the simplest terms, this means that the Geese being chased never considered the dog too much of a threat in the first place. We love using our trained Goose-Herding dogs because it’s a humane and highly effective way to keep Geese out of a particular area. We don’t train our dogs to ever harm or catch the Geese, this is a completely safe procedure which is commonplace in the industry.
Canada Geese Harassment, Hazing & Herding Services
Canada Geese harassment is one of the best known techniques out there for ridding a specific area or property of these animals. Also known as “hazing” or “herding,” it’s the humane way to get things done. So much so that Government agencies as well as animal right’s groups are in full support of it as a means to Control or remove Canada Geese.
One of the biggest reasons for such support are that it does not involve the use of any chemicals, pesticides, traps or other harmful methods. Canada Geese are protected from harm by the US government, therefore we don’t do any type of trapping nor do we harm Canada Geese in any way, shape and form. One of the most popular techniques we specialize in involves the use of Goose chasing dogs which are trained to simply scare away Canada Geese from the areas they flock to. Our handlers are highly experienced and we can promise you that no harm will come to any Geese, they will simply move to another area.
