Canada geese Control in Freehold Township, NJ
Freehold Township, NJ is a beautiful place, full of history and culture that make it an ideal place to raise a family – but as the home of the famed Battle of Monmouth, this historic region is now the staging ground for an ongoing battle between local residents and the invasive Canada geese, one of New Jersey’s most common pests.
Luckily for the area’s residents, Birds and Geese Beware, Inc. are serving the community with over twenty years of experience in humanely removing Canada geese from areas they’ve infested. We at Birds and Geese Beware are experts in safely and carefully removing these flocks, saving you the time and danger of trying to face them on your own.
The Rise of Canada Geese
Canada geese become more and more common every year in New Jersey, in part due to the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918. This act made it illegal to harm or kill any migratory bird traveling outside of its normal nesting zone – but Canada geese are uniquely problematic because they have a tendency to become nonmigratory in a suitable environment, simply nesting and never leaving.
These nests can depreciate a neighborhood’s value as more and more geese roam the area, and as such, they should be handled quickly – but Birds and Geese Beware have developed a wide range of methods in removing them quickly.
Canada Geese Control Methods
At its most simple, the process used to scare Canada geese away is called ‘hazing’ – in essence, Birds and Geese Beware make the area an unsuitable place for the geese to live by introducing goose-herding dogs that are among the best trained on the east coast. These dogs are never taught to catch or to harm these geese, instead putting a good scare into them so that they never come back.
Another standard technique in cutting a flock down to size is through a method called addling – in this process, the flock’s nest is discretely approached by a trained professional who applies a chemical compound to the eggs that stops the embryo’s growth. This has to be done without the flock noticing, as usually a mother goose will just smash the eggs and lay more if she’s aware that her eggs have been tampered with.
Canadian Geese’s Dangers to Your Senior Living Community
Although Canadian geese are common all over the east coast, they’ve been a particular problem for senior living communities across the state. Even a single goose can be a threat to a vulnerable citizen trying to drive the bird from their senior living community, due in large part to geese standing their ground when confronted. These geese will both peck and attempt to slap aggressors with their wings, and given that Canada geese are known carriers of listeria and e-coli, they present an additionally large risk to senior citizens.
Whether you’re running a senior care facility, a commercial property or even simply have a flock in your backyard, Birds and Geese Beware are here to help.
