Are geese overwhelming your property? If so contact us now!

Canada geese are probably the most adaptable and tolerant of all native waterfowl. If left undisturbed, they will readily establish nesting territories on any suitable pond, be it located on a farm, backyard, golf course, apartment or condominium complex, or city park.

Canada geese are protected under both the Federal Migratory Bird Treaty Act and Ohio state law. This protection extends to the geese, goslings, nests, and eggs. Non-lethal scare and hazing tactics, which do not harm the geese, are allowed. These tactics include: pyrotechnics, dogs, barriers, a grid on the pond, laser pointers (at night), distress calls, or grape-flavored repellents such as Flight Control.

If non-lethal tactics have been used in the past, without success, the Division of Wildlife may issue a lethal permit to allow the landowner to destroy nests, conduct a goose roundup, or shoot geese. These permits can only be used March 11 through August 31.

To obtain a free Nuisance Goose Permit for the Dayton Ohio area it will go through ODOW District 5 out of Xenia. to be directed to the online form fill and request Barnes Wildlife Control in the comment field to take care of your problem. As stated above permits are only available from March 11 - August 31. When applicable, your request for permit will be considered at that time.

BARNES WILDLIFE CONTROL: Canadian Geese and their offspring

Canadian Geese and their offspring

The large, black-necked Canadian Goose has a distinct white chinstrap mark and can be found everywhere in the US , in yards, ponds, lakes, farm field and city parks. The Canadian Goose has a distinct honking sound and will migrate north and south each year. These geese will fly in small and large groups forming a distinct formation looking like a V. But as more and more people have maintained well-manicured lawns, larger number of these birds are not migrating and living in urban and suburban areas year-round, and can become quite a pest.

Some interesting facts about Canadian geese

There are at least 11 subspecies of Canadian Geese. As you move north the geese get the geese get smaller, and as you go westward the geese get darker. Some populations of geese that use to migrate are not going as far south in the winter as they used to. This change has been attributed to changes waste grain coming from farms being more available in fall and winter, as well as changes in weather. Individual Canada Geese from most populations make annual migrations north after breeding. Even Canadian Geese that don't migrate south in the winter, will move north in late summer to molt.

A mother goose on her mound keeping her eggs warm.

The “huge” Canadian Goose bred from Manitoba to Kentucky became nearly extinct in the early 1900s. Programs were establish to re-introduce this large bird to its original areas. The programs became so successful that the geese have become a nuisance in many urban and suburban areas.

the nest of a Canadian goose

A Canadian Goose makes a large open hole in the ground made of dry grasses, lichens, mosses, and other plant material, and then filled with down and body feathers. The nest if often on a muskrat mound or some other elevated ground. The nest is always near water. The goose will built a nest in an area where they can see in almost all directions. The female chooses the site and constructs most of the nest. She also does all the sitting on the eggs while her mate guards her and the nest.

Canadian Geese Mating and their goslings

Did you know that Canadian Geese have a very low "divorce rate"? Generally these geese will mate for life and will remain together throughout the year. Most Canada Geese do not breed until their fourth year and if geese pair within the first year those bonds are generally unstable until the pair during the fourth year.

Once a female's eggs hatch, the offspring(goslings) begin pecking at small objects but sleep and eat most of the time. The offspring remain with their parents constantly. Sometimes group broods form which can include at least two broods but often more. The brood travels together, feeding, swimming or walking on land, but always accompanied by at least one adult.

Conservation

Canada Geese are common and have increased dramatically over the years according to the North American Breeding Bird Survey. The total North American population of Canadian Geese is estimated to be between 4 million to 6 million. The proliferation of lawns, golf courses, and parks offers Canada Geese such comfortable environments that will stay put all year round instead of migrating like they used to do. Because Canadian Geese have become a nuisance in some areas because they eat all the grass, poop all over the areas they inhabit and can become a hazard for airplanes that collide with geese. Almost 3 million Canada Geese are killed by hunters in North America, but the total number of geese population is fine.
