The Problem

A large presence of Canadian geese can lead to large problems that can be hard to manage.  Excess goose droppings can contaminate water sources and cause blooms of algae.  Salmonella, Escherichia coli, Campylobacter, Listeria, and Chlamydia are all potential food poisoning type bacteria that could be present in the droppings. Just walking on the feces wouldn’t lead to transmission, however cross-contamination through contact with shoes or from direct contact with the feces and then inadvertently contact your lips could.  Slipping on fresh droppings may also cause someone to fall and injure themselves.  Aggressive geese protecting their nests during the nesting season is also common.

Since Canadian Geese are federally protected, they can be very hard to deal with.

The Solution

We have developed a Humane Canada Goose Program that can be customized to meet your individual needs.  Using the most up to date techniques and scientific information, we use a combination of visual deterrents as well as physical and mechanical devices like our custom-built land-based and amphibious predator drones.  Our primary method of goose control is to deploy one of our Goose Technicians to humanely harass your migratory and/or resident geese with one of our custom-built remote-controlled land-based and/or amphibious predator drones.  These predator drones are designed to simulate a super predator that has moved into the geese’s safe area and render that safe area as no longer safe.  Forcing the geese to find refuge somewhere else.

We use these predator drones on a regular basis to re-enforce the natural fear of predators that are inherent with Canadian Geese.  Normally when a body of water is present and geese are harassed, they will flock to the safety of the water.  This is where your standard canine based goose control companies fail and this is where RANTECH excels.  By utilizing our amphibious predator drone, we can safely and quickly follow the geese into the water rendering this former safe area…  No Longer Safe!  Due to the design of our amphibious predator, it has its limitations.  It can only operate on grass, dirt, sand, snow, ice, and water and due to its lightweight, it does not like high winds.  That’s where our land-based predator drone comes in,  It is designed to be able to go on cement, asphalt, rough terrain, high winds, and in areas of close proximity of cars and people.

Canada Goose Facts

Geese eat between 2 lbs and 5 lbs each day.

Geese poop on average 28 times a day (1 lb – 1 ½ lbs each day).

Geese mate for life and stay together throughout the year.

If a goose loses a partner, they will typically find another mate.

They mate every spring (late February to early April).

Nesting season is mid-March to May.

The incubation period is about a month.

They average 5-6 eggs in a clutch each year.

Wherever a goose is born, they return to that same place every year to rear their young. The only thing that breaks this pattern is the presence of a predator.

They begin to nest between the ages 2-4. 

Geese molt in June – late July. Molting is when adult geese lose their wing feathers and are unable to fly. Usually by August they are able to fly again. 

Migration season is typically October through March. 

Geese like to stay near lakes because open water provides safety from predators. They like to sleep in lakes for that reason. This is why they love parks and golf courses. These places provide food and safety.

Geese usually congregate in flocks.

Each flock has a group of sentries. Sentries are basically security guards for the flock. While the flock feeds the sentries stand guard and are specifically on the lookout for predators.
