Geese, Geese Go Away

Last weekend the weather here in Iowa was quite nice. I really enjoy taking my old dog on a long walk around a local nature preserve and recreational area. Normally we have a pretty good time.

On this particular day I noticed something that was a bit out of the ordinary for this place. There’s a one acre lake there that’s a popular little fishing hole for a lot of locals and most days it’s crystal clear and looking great. The grounds are normally kept very clean, but not today.

I don’t really want to complain about nature…it’s not in my mindset, but let’s face it, when geese get over populated on a small pond they can create quite a mess. There was goose crap everywhere. My dog loved it…me, not so much.

During the fall around many parts of the country, non-resident geese will migrate through, or set up winter shop in local ponds around here. It’s probably the same where you are. They also like to hang out on the Mississippi River, which is only a mile or so from the pond being mentioned here. My point being that they have a lot of options when it comes to taking up a temporary residence.

So a question came to mind, how can you safely (for the geese) deter them from hanging around so much in a particular pond? This obviously is not for people who like to have them around (I generally do), but in some cases, and in large numbers, they can cause problems.

The best answer I’ve come up with so far, apart from constant harassment with a dog or gun (both of which may not always be safe for man or beast) is by using an odd looking device that looks similar to landing lights an an airport. Although it should not be taken as an invitation for landing by geese.

Away With Geese is interesting because it is solar powered and emits a flashing sequence of light that in tests showed it was very unsettling to geese. The proof is in the pudding as they say.

Here’s a few of the many testimonials the manufacturer has received regarding the results…

We purchased your product several weeks ago and sure enough, it has worked as advertised. We have struggled with Brantas Canadensis for ten years on our two acre lake and never could rid ourselves of the 50-200 individuals that claimed our yard as home. After installing the water based unit, we saw the geese numbers decline to zero in just a week. You sell a great product that I wish I was aware of years ago. Thank you for keeping the bottoms of my sandals a whole lot cleaner.

We have a three acre pond that was covered with geese every fall, at dusk. They made a racket and a mess. We decided to give the “Away with Geese” light a try. We put the light in the center of the pond and within 3 nights, the geese were gone. We are very happy with the light. It is safe and environmentally friendly. Best of all, it really does work!”
