Canada geese Control for Industrial Sites in New Jersey
New Jersey has experienced a near calamitous growth in the Canada geese population over the past five or six decades. The problems caused by the flocks that have taken up residence are much more significant than what’s experienced by their migratory cousins. For one thing, the flocks in residence are much larger than those that migrate.
The flocks tend to find a place that suits them and stay there indefinitely. This can cause real harm to your vegetation and quality of life. They look for fresh growth of grass, wide open spaces, and water. If you have this configuration near your industrial complex, then you most likely have the trifecta of Canada geese.
Each goose can weigh as much as twelve pounds, or more, and that takes quite a lot of vegetation to keep it fed. On a daily basis, one Canada goose may consume three pounds of food. That creates approximately two pounds of waste. Multiply that by fifty to 60 birds in a flock, each day, and you have a problem. Industrial Canada geese control provides many humane options when you want to rid your parking lot, sidewalks, and employee eating areas of the debris created by your residential flock.
New Jersey recognizes the potential hazards involved in ridding an area of resident Canada geese and in limiting future reproduction. The state works with the Humane Society and the Center for Wildlife Management to properly train and certify in Canada goose management and control.
Following are some deterrents that you might want to consider to reclaim your property:
Canada geese feed on fresh grass clippings and new growth. If you replant some of your vegetation with plants, such as ivy and wildflowers, the geese won’t be drawn to eat at that spot.
Dogs that are specially trained to scare the Canada geese off your property provide a sense of risk to the geese. They will be reticent to return to an area where they’ve experienced danger.
Used during low-light conditions, laser lights are another effective method in creating fear in Canada geese.
Trained and certified individuals are experienced in finding Canada geese nests, working around angry goose pairs trying to protect their clutch, determining the age of the eggs, and humanely stopping the embryo’s development. There are three possible egg addling methods that may be employed, as sanctioned by the Humane Society.
Involves approximately twenty minutes of vigorous egg shaking until liquid can be heard swooshing inside the egg. This process is repeated for each egg in the nest while fending off the male and female.
The shell of each egg is pierced with a small hole so that bacteria is allowed to form inside and stop growth.
Lightly coating the outside of an egg with corn oil works to stop the flow of oxygen.
It is imperative in each instance to have a thorough understanding of how far along the eggs have progressed in order to maintain humane standards. If shaking or piercing is done too late, or not correctly, a live birth of a deformed goose may be possible. The goal of addling is to encourage the male and female to remain with the nest long enough to prevent them from going elsewhere to lay more eggs.
