While Canada geese are beautiful creatures, they can become a real problem when they settle on your property. It would be wonderful if they simply came and looked pretty and just nibbled on a few things. The problem is, the stuff they nibble on gets deposited back onto your yard in the form of droppings. One Canada goose can produce as much as 1.5 pounds of droppings in one day! Multiply that by a bunch of geese and you have a problem.

Common Problems Caused By Canada Geese

  • Droppings: As mentioned, these geese leave a lot of droppings. Not only are these droppings unsightly, but they can be dangerous as they can become a slipping hazard. They may also contain parasites, infectious diseases, and harmful bacteria. Geese have been connected to the spread of e-coli, chlamydiosis, encephalitis, histoplasmosis, and more.

  • Aggressiveness: If these birds feel threatened, they can be somewhat aggressive, especially if they are protecting a nesting area. While they more often simply hiss at the perceived threat, they have been known to peck at invaders, causing bruising to the skin. These birds can also be very loud, especially if there are large numbers of them, which can be...

While they more often simply hiss at the perceived threat, they have been known to peck at invaders, causing bruising to the skin. These birds can also be very loud, especially if there are large numbers of them, which can be aggravating.

  • Chiggers: These are tiny, immature mites, which are sometimes deposited by Canada geese, and leave itchy bites that can turn into blisters or pustules on the skin of anyone who comes in contact with them.

  • Destruction of property: Canada geese are known to disturb and damage ornamentals, gardens, crops, flower beds and turf grass with their overgrazing. If they invade farming areas, they can damage crops such as clover, soybeans, wheat, corn, rye and all kinds of vegetables.

A Few Prevention Tips

  • Don't feed them: Not only will this guarantee that those geese will stick around, but it will also draw in other geese.

  • Put up some decoys: Canada geese and swans do not get along. Consider placing some decoys of swans on your property.

  • Let grass grow long around your water sources: If you let your grass grow up to 20 inches high, this will limit the access the geese have to that water and may make them want to move on.

  • Make some noise: Geese hate noise. Use an air horn to blast when you see geese starting to land on your property. Other loud noises work as well.
