FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT GOOSE MANAGEMENT
What about permits?
Federal and/or state permits are required for egg addling, nest destruction and the physical removal of geese. These permits are complicated and expensive, but we handle all the permitting and reporting for you.
Which approach will work best for my situation?
There is no “one size fits all” solution. Each solution is unique and Predator Impact, LLC. has the tools and experience for any situation. We will be happy to meet with you at no cost, do an on-site survey and discuss options with you.
Will they come back?
Virtually none of the geese that are relocated from your property will come back, however, the same features that made your property attractive to geese before may continue to attract them. We will help you determine what changes can be made to discourage geese, or in some situations, we may need to plan occasional visits to discourage newcomers. It is much easier to repel newly arrived geese than it is geese that have been settled for a long time.
Please note that if there are other properties nearby that have geese, they may spread into your property once we remove your geese. The best analogy is that of having your apartment exterminated for roaches, but the neighboring apartment still has them. It is possible that they will migrate into your area. If possible, it is best to treat all properties in close proximity at the same time.
Does it hurt to feed the geese?
Nothing encourages geese to stay in an area more than feeding them. If they are already used to being fed, we can use that to our advantage to bring them into a rocket net, but if they are not used to being fed, don’t allow people to feed them. That only makes it harder to get them to leave.
What about all the goose poop left behind?
One of our services is to pressure wash any sidewalks or patio areas at your request. Goose droppings in grassy areas break down quickly in the rain and are usually not a concern.
Will this disrupt my business?
Again, there isn’t a one-size fits all answer. We will work with you to minimize the interference with your business. Perhaps limiting activities to after dark, or low business hours. We will work with you to find a solution. Most of our goose abatement can be done at night when there are no golfers on the golf course. Other than the rocket nets, our methods are very quiet (no cannons or noise makers), so that neighbors aren't disturbed at all during the day, and only by our lights at night.
