    We treat a large number of acres on Golf courses, Schools and business properties where geese are totally out of control.

    Goose Repel (Blistering Defense) is an EPA Exempt product that is a low cost and very effective deterrent. It flavors all the grass and soil with pepper, garlic and soy-oils that stay for ~30 days.

    Results are immediate and long term.

    if they are being fed by local, post signs,apply for special hunt permit through state or local wildlife authority.If this does not work .allow or encourage a few select people to run their dogs on the property.early spring , ounce they pair up with their mate and selected a nesting site, they will be almost Impossible to get rid of.urbanized ducks and geese are pain.Talk to the local wildlife authority and see how far you can go in resolving this problem.

    The local airport here uses a border collie to chase off birds so they don't get caught in the Jet props. It may work for you. plus it is fun to watch.

    Geese are federally regulated and protected...Id contact you state game commission to find out approved ways to deal with them...can be very expensive if ya accidently kill one and the wrong animal lover finds out! ..Like naughty62 said, once they decide thats the place to mate generation after generation will come back year after year. Can go from dozens to hundreds!..
