Our team brings a confident understanding of both the behavior of Canada geese and the operational needs of aviation facilities, ensuring clear, knowledgeable, and effective geese control solutions.

Biology and Behavior of Canada Geese

Canada Geese are a familiar sight across the skies of North America, especially in New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut, regions where Birds and Geese Beware, Inc. provides expert deterrent services. Understanding the biology and behavior of these birds is vital to effectively managing their presence around airplane hangars.

These large birds are known for their seasonal migration, flying in a distinctive V-formation. Canada Geese, including temperate-breeding subspecies and the smaller cackling geese, embark on these long journeys to reach their breeding grounds in spring. During winter, they often migrate to warmer areas, with some populations being more stationary if the conditions permit.

The breeding season is a crucial period for geese as they become more territorial, which can lead to increased interactions with humans and potential hazards for aviation. Nests tend to be built in elevated areas near bodies of water. After breeding, geese go through a molting phase, losing their flight feathers, which temporarily inhibits their ability to fly and can influence the timing of management practices such as trapping or egg addling.

Our company specializes in a variety of humane deterrent options to manage these birds' interactions with aviation facilities. These deterrents range from the use of chasing dogs—a natural and effective solution—to habituation and habitat modification. Additionally, we provide wire exclusion techniques, fencing solutions, and a variety of frightening, visual, and audio deterrents to ensure geese avoid critical areas. Repellents can alter the taste of grass, discouraging geese from foraging, while egg destruction and nest control can limit the growth of geese populations.

To address the complexities of managing these intelligent and adaptable birds, it is essential to employ a comprehensive strategy. Our skilled team recognizes that each species, whether it's Canada Geese, cackling geese, or even gulls which frequently cohabitate, requires a unique approach tailored to their behavioral patterns and the local ecosystem, ensuring we can protect your aviation assets throughout the year.

Legal Framework for Wildlife Management

As experts in wildlife management, we at Birds and Geese Beware, Inc., operate within the strict legal frameworks established for the ethical and legal control of Canada geese.

Federal and State Regulations

Migratory Bird Treaty Act forms the cornerstone of our federal regulations, encapsulating the protection of migratory birds, including Canada geese. This Act, along with the Migratory Birds Convention Act, ensures these birds are safeguarded against unauthorized take and harm. In our line of work, we are constantly guided by these regulations, ensuring that our methods for controlling Canada geese populations, such as Chasing Dogs, Behavioral or Habitat Modification, and Frightening Deterrents, are compliant with all respective legal boundaries.

State regulations can vary, but they often follow federal guidelines closely, providing additional layers of oversight. As we manage goose populations in airports' premises, we are aware that each state we operate in may have their own nuances in wildlife management laws. Therefore, we ensure our service — from the use of Audio Deterrents to more direct methods like Trapping and Nest Control activities — align with both state and federal legislation.

Permit Requirements for Geese Control

To engage in activities such as Egg Addling, Egg Destruction, and any form of lethal control, we are required to obtain permits. These permits are essential as they dictate the conditions under which specific control measures may be implemented. The federal government, through the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, as well as state agencies like the NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife, mandate these permit procedures to manage the impact on the Canada geese population effectively.

Permits come with stipulations, often mandating the use of non-lethal control methods prior to the consideration of lethal means. In adhering to these requirements, our arsenal of deterrents like Visual Deterrents, Wire Exclusion, and Canada geese Fencing is tailored to minimize harm, addressing goose-related damage in a humane and legally compliant manner.

As we continue to provide these specialized services, ensuring the safety of both aviation operations and wildlife, our commitment to following the legal requirements remains unwavering. Through our management solutions, we uphold the delicate balance between human activity and the preservation of migratory bird populations.

Non-Lethal Geese Control Methods

In the vicinity of airplane hangars, non-lethal methods are preferred for managing Canada geese populations. These methods are designed to safely deter geese without harm, ensuring compliance with wildlife protection laws and maintaining airfield safety.

Habitat Modification Techniques

We at Birds and Geese Beware, Inc. have found that altering the local environment where geese congregate is an effective long-term solution. We specialize in Canada geese Behavioral or Habitat Modification, an approach that includes altering food sources, nesting habitats, and water access. In New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut, modifying landscapes to make them less appealing to geese includes the growth of tall grasses and the use of specific plants that geese find unattractive. The aim is to encourage geese to seek more suitable habitats naturally, thus reducing their presence near hangars.

Emphasize the importance of making the area around hangars uninviting for geese without harming them. Describe specific techniques such as letting grass grow longer, planting unpalatable vegetation, or changing water access points.

Repellents and Deterrents

Our company provides several repellent solutions to keep Canada geese at bay, including methyl anthranilate-based products, which are non-toxic but irritating to geese. We apply these repellents to grassy areas around hangars as a food-grade deterrent, creating a sensory barrier that's harmless but effective. Additionally, our repertoire includes various visual and auditory deterrents designed to make airfields less inviting while causing no harm to the birds. These range from strategically placed decoys to innovative audio devices that play distress or predator calls, often combined for enhanced effectiveness.

Discuss how these substances and devices function without causing harm to geese. Highlight the sensory discomfort for geese while ensuring the safety of the deterrent methods.

Exclusion and Frightening Devices

To prevent geese from accessing certain areas, we employ exclusion methods like Canada geese Wire Exclusion and Canada geese Fencing. By creating physical barriers, we effectively block geese from landing or nesting in regions around hangars where aircraft movement is critical. Additionally, we offer a variety of frightening devices. Our Canada geese Frightening Deterrents use a combination of stimuli to discourage geese from settling in high-risk areas. With continued use, geese learn to associate airfields with these unpleasant experiences, leading to a long-term reduction in their presence.

Explain the function of barriers such as fences and wiring, and how they keep geese out of sensitive areas. Describe how frightening devices like flashing lights or scarecrows create psychological barriers for geese.

Lethal Geese Management Strategies

When managing the Canada geese population around airplane hangars, it is sometimes necessary to employ lethal methods to ensure safety and prevent significant damage. These measures require proper permits as they are conducted in accordance with regulations set to protect wildlife while addressing human-wildlife conflicts. At Birds and Geese Beware, Inc., we ensure that our actions in New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut are both effective and compliant with legal standards.

Hunting and Population Control

Hunting can serve as a practical approach to Canada geese population control, particularly near airfields where their presence poses risks to aircraft during takeoff and landing. Our company participates in regular, depredation, and resident Canada goose seasons, following hunting regulations meticulously. We coordinate seasons and obtain necessary permits to conduct hunting programs that are intentionally planned during times when geese populations are legally designated for control. Moreover, we utilize methods like sharpshooting with shotguns and employ nondisruptive techniques, such as suppressors and subsonic rounds, to effectively manage the geese population within operational areas.

Egg Management Tactics: Oiling and Puncturing

Another aspect of lethal management strategies is the control of Canada geese populations through direct intervention with their nests and eggs. With appropriate federal permits, we employ egg management tactics including oiling and puncturing. These methods prevent the hatching of a clutch of eggs, thereby reducing the number of new geese adding to the population each year. Oiling involves coating eggs with a substance that prevents gas exchange, effectively ceasing development, while puncturing is a more direct method where the eggshells are perforated. Both of these measures are part of an integrated approach to managing goose numbers and are conducted with respect to ethical standards and humane considerations.

Implementing Geese Management in Specific Settings

In addressing the challenges posed by Canada geese in specialized environments like airports and urban areas, it is essential to use targeted, effective management techniques that respect the ecosystem while preventing potential conflicts and hazards.

Airport Geese Control

Managing Canada geese populations is critical at airports, as flocks in proximity to runways increase the risk of bird-airplane collisions. At Birds and Geese Beware, Inc., we specialize in safeguarding airports in New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut, utilizing a combination of strategies. Our approach includes the use of Canada geese Chasing Dogs, which safely and naturally discourage geese from nesting near airplane hangars and runways. We also deploy multiple deterrent methods such as Audio and Visual Deterrents to disturb geese without causing harm. Through Habitat Modification, we alter the landscapes around airports to make them less attractive to geese, thus reducing the likelihood of dangerous interaction with planes. By ensuring the implementation of these measures, we actively prevent the possibility of a collision, safeguarding both the geese and air travelers.

Urban and Agricultural Land Management

In urban and agricultural settings, the consequences of goose presence range from property damage to disease transmission risks. We, at Birds and Geese Beware, Inc., address these issues head-on by offering comprehensive geese control solutions tailored to these environments. In urban areas, our Wire Exclusion and Fencing techniques are particularly effective in keeping geese away from public spaces like golf courses, where their waste can pose a health risk and damage the ecosystem. In agriculture, geese feeding on crops can cause significant losses. Here, we apply Repellents for Canada geese and Nest Control methods, such as Egg Addling and Destruction, to responsibly manage population levels. Our full spectrum of deterrent options, including Behavioral Modification strategies, ensures that your urban or agricultural land remains free from the challenges posed by Canada geese populations.

Assessing and Monitoring Geese Populations

In our efforts to safeguard airplane hangars, we understand that a thorough assessment of the Canada geese populations is essential. At Birds and Geese Beware, Inc., we start by identifying the presence of geese, particularly the aggressive resident Canada geese known for their abundance in areas of southern Canada, New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut. It is vital to track whether their numbers are stable, increasing, or under effective population control.

Identification and biological understanding guide our monitoring strategies. By observing geese behavior and habitat use, we pinpoint the factors contributing to their presence. Non-lethal management techniques, such as Canada geese Chasing Dogs, are then tailored to each unique environment. We are meticulous in documenting signs of geese, such as droppings and nests, which pose risks of damage to property and aircraft. Goose droppings, in particular, are not only unsightly but can also corrode materials and create hazardous slip-and-fall conditions.

Our approach to population control combines Behavioral or Habitat Modification with Wire Exclusion, Fencing, and various Deterrents. These measures are designed to discourage geese from settling in and around hangars. In cases where geese have already established residency, methods like Egg Addling and Nest Control are employed to humanely reduce population growth rates. Our knowledge of geese biology ensures that these tactics are implemented effectively and ethically, in compliance with wildlife protection laws.

Persistent monitoring is central to our strategy, allowing us to adapt our methods to maintain a safe and geese-free environment. We confidently offer a suite of deterrent options for our customers, from Visual and Audio Deterrents to Repellents and Trapping. Each solution is carefully selected and applied by our knowledgeable team to uphold the highest standard of bird control, ensuring our clients' properties remain secure and operational.
