We can rid you of Geese problems safely and efficiently
Flying through the sky in V-shaped formations, Canada geese are known for their seasonal migration patterns. However, less than half of the estimated five million geese in North America take their traditional passage, opting instead to stay near urban and residential areas where food remains plentiful all year. Their impressive numbers, aggressive natures, and plentiful excretion have earned these geese the animosity of many people.

Canada geese are common throughout most of the United States. Recognizable by their large size, the birds have distinct black necks and heads, white cheeks, brown body feathers, and white bellies. Their large, webbed feet make them powerful swimmers and their sizable wingspans allow them to fly high in the air for distances up to 1,500 miles per day. When threatened, Canada geese hiss, flap their wings intimidatingly, and bite with their beaks. They make loud honking sounds to communicate with each other, especially when flying.
Geese typically eat aquatic plants, grain crops, and grasses. Their favorite foods are generally found in ponds, marshy areas, farms, and open spaces like public parks.
Fields, marshes, and grasslands adjacent to open water such as ponds, lakes, and slow-moving rivers make prime habitats for Canada geese. City parks, public ponds, golf courses, and farm fields are also common feeding grounds and nesting sites. Their nests are often found near the water’s edge and are made from the abandoned nests of other waterfowl. When constructing their own nests, Canada geese tend to choose sheltered sites among tall reeds or cattails in which they build bowl-like structures made of twigs and reed stalks.
