Will Milorganite Keep Geese away?

    We have a customer who lives a few houses from a lake. He has geese coming into his yard. I have been asked to try stop these unwanted pests. I read most threads on geese. Flight Control was said to work well but is expensive. Stringing twine on border seems logical in that Geese will not step over anything, but a liability issue comes up if someone should trip. I am thinking that since Milorganite (Human processed sewage) works to deter Deer and rabbits, how about Geese?
    Garlic cloves on border?

    What do you think?

    I have read all the posts about BB rifles, shot guns, heavy surpus artillery and alka-seltzer treats also. All this humor has been enjoyed, I am hoping for some pratical solutions.

    Tell them to go down to the local animal shelter and adopt the most active dog they can find. I live on a river and believe me its the only effective means of control.

    Milorginite is a combination of digested cheese, bratwurst and beer from the Milwaukee Metro Sewage district.

    I can imagine that that would keep anything away1:D
