One of the most off-putting sights that can drive customers away is goose droppings. Commercial pest management is a large responsibility, but incorporating prevention procedures in everyday routines can help keep these large birds at bay.

Given the huge population of geese and their migratory habits, almost every establishment that sits near a body of water runs the risk of becoming a seasonal home to these waterfowl. Though they're important to the ecosystem and Canada geese are protected by the Federal Migratory Bird Act of 1918, they're no less harmful to people, property and, therefore, businesses.

Canadian Geese

Recognize the potential risks

It's no secret that geese are some of the boldest birds around. They aren't afraid to live in close proximity to humans and will attack if they feel threatened. They're especially unafraid of small children, which can result in a difficult situation for property owners.

Additionally, geese have been known to tear up lawns and damage ornamental pieces. This can undermine landscaping efforts, which is costly.

Though geese aren't particularly dangerous in terms of diseases that can be transmitted to humans, their droppings do affect water quality, which can affect operations for outdoor aquatic facilities.

Prevent geese from nesting on your property

The best method of pest control is prevention. There's a wide range of geese-deterrent products, including fences, decoys, streamers, scarecrows and more. Though these items may not have been part of the original landscaping design, they can be useful in the long run.

Alternatively, you can rework your landscaping to keep geese away. They're naturally afraid of confinement and avoid tight spaces. Designing the planting layout to prevent geese from being able to see over the tops can keep them from developing an interest in staying on your property.

Tend to a current problem

If there are already geese who have settled in, it's essential to work with pest control specialists such as those from Abell Pest Control. These professionals know the ins and outs of the Migratory Bird Act and will know how to handle the birds without breaking any laws.

Should the birds continue to live on your property, Abell's experts can provide insight on what will keep them from returning the following season. This ensures that your commercial pest management procedures are optimized and that you won't have to deal with this problem again.
