- Don’t give them food
- Make a barrier
- Use a liquid goose repellent
You don’t have to look far to find a gaggle of geese taking their daily stroll. Finding out how to keep geese away from your commercial business without causing them or the environmental harm, can be challenging. Before taking drastic measures to solve your geese problem, here are a few ways we recommend handling the situation.
Don’t Feed The Birds!
Providing any type of food for these unwelcome visitors can lead to groups of geese congregating around your business. To help prevent this, install signs that will remind your guests and workers to not feed the geese. If geese become accustomed to getting fed, they may lose their fear of humans and start to linger on your premises. Just because they aren’t getting food from your customers and workers doesn’t mean they’ll leave your land alone.
Create A Barrier
Keep geese away by adding a barrier fence to your property. The fence will need to be at least 30 inches high to prevent molted geese (non-flighted) from making their way over the barrier. Barriers can be constructed from plastic snow fence, woven wire, string, chain link, nylon tape or chicken wire. Keep in mind, this process can be time-consuming and won’t stop flighted birds from entering your premises.
