HOW IT WORKS
At Geese Guys, we design and implement comprehensive and humane Canada Goose Management Programs (CGMP) that specifically address the needs and challenges of our clients’ properties. Geese don’t take days off, so neither do we! We visit locations 7 days a week, throughout the day, to keep the geese on the move. Our CGMPs integrate the following strategies to achieve long-term results in the most efficient and humane manner possible:
GOOSE DOG HERDING PROGRAM
We use highly trained border collies to humanely stalk and herd Canada geese off your property. These dogs have been bred for generations to silently stare at livestock to move them without physically coming in contact with the animals. This intense gaze translates to the geese as a predation attempt, and quickly tells the geese that there is a “predator” on site.
HUMANE WILDLIFE EDUCATION
Our intention is always to prevent conflict between human populations and Canada geese. As such, we serve as experts in the field of Canada goose ecology and strive to continually educate the public about how their actions affect Canada goose and other Oregon wildlife species. We present educational talks upon request to residents, board members, and groups that serve to connect people with wildlife populations and further support us in our efforts to rebalance ecosystems, and support healthier wildlife populations and human communities.
AUXILIARY HAZING TECHNIQUES
Canada geese are extremely fearful of novel situations and are hesitant to return to areas where they have experienced diverse hazing techniques. We take advantage of this quality by utilizing new and varied methods of disturbing them when they are in no tolerance zones. At times, our Goose Managers and Dogs may pursue the geese in the water or air. We commonly utilize remote controlled crafts, as well as long distance green lasers and kayaks to encourage the geese to disperse out of the area. All of our methods are humane and are supported by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and The Humane Society of America (HSUS)
During breeding season, we work with the United States Fish & Wildlife Service and Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife to apply humane egg depredation methods in order to discourage hatch out of goslings and exponential population growth on our client’s properties.
HABITAT AND LANDSCAPE MODIFICATION
We make recommendations to change landscaping to create aesthetically pleasing grounds that also deter Canada geese from settling in. Additionally, we can suggest products that will help to discourage overgrazing of grass sources by Canada geese.
