Canada Geese Control Single Clearing Services in New Jersey
Canada Geese create costly problems for residential properties, businesses, golf courses, and public parks all around New Jersey. These large migratory birds can weigh up to fourteen pounds and have a wingspan of 4.2 to 6.1 feet. They like to nest near lakes, ponds, rivers, and other large and small bodies of water. Geese eat submerged aquatic vegetation but they also eat crops like alfalfa, corn, millet, rye, barley, oats, and wheat. Once geese are established in an area they tend to attract more geese and a large population in an urban or public place can quickly become a problem.
Geese can destroy lawns and golf courses when they graze. Their feces can contaminate ponds because they can potentially carry salmonella, E. coli, and Listeria. The buildup of droppings on sidewalks and paths can cause them to become slippery and dangerous.
There are many options available for removing geese from a property. Some owners choose to harass the geese with Border Collie dogs. Some owners will use loud noises to scare the geese away. Still, others will use decoy predators like coyotes to scare the geese into not nesting in a particular place. Farmers have used lasers to relocate geese off their fields and save their crops. If geese do not feel secure at night to roost, then they will not want to stay in that place during the day either. Another option is a single application of a goose repellent on your yard or property.
When planning a single application of goose repellent for a problem area in New Jersey take into account the biological and behavioral aspect of the geese. You must plan around mating and hatching season because once the goslings hatch it takes seventy days for them to be able to fly. Repellents will not work if the geese cannot get away from the area. Geese can get aggressive during these times as well so access to the property to spray the repellent can be an issue as well.

Canada geese control single clearing services usually include a liquid sprayed on turf or grass areas. These areas may include lawns, golf courses, parks, athletic fields, and cemeteries. Some repellents can be detected visually by geese. They will first experience brief digestive irritation when they eat the treated grass or turf. Then they will learn to associate the visual cues to indigestion. This will cause the geese to move on to another food sources.
This kind of treatment can be used on lakes, ponds, backyards, parks, and golf courses.
