Geese Control Services Frequently Asked Questions
Why are geese attracted to certain areas?
Geese nest in areas that are close to water, so if you have a pond, river or lake nearby it’s the perfect spot. They feed on the vegetation under the water and graze on grass and other plants.
Why do geese come back to the same spot each year?

Why are there so many geese in Ohio?
Why do you focus on geese control mid-February through October and not year-round?
We build our schedule around the goose lifecycle. Geese usually arrive to nest in early March, either returning to a previous nesting site or looking for a new one. Nesting goes through the end of April/beginning of May. The adult geese molt in early May, making them unable to fly again until late-July or August. Then they migrate to a warmer climate, typically in early October. Service should stay in place so birds coming from the North choose to winter elsewhere.
In northern Ohio, winters are usually cold enough to freeze the water in ponds, so the geese leave on their own. Keep in mind, however, we can service your property all year long to help ensure you don’t have geese problems during off season.

Why do you use Border Collies?
Border Collies use their eyes to stalk geese in the attempt to herd. The geese quickly feel threatened when a predator has them in its sight and will move towards water for assumed safety. Border Collies not only swim well, but they are relentless in their pursuit. The dogs follow the geese into the water and it’s only a matter of time before the geese leave.
