Geese Chasers™: Professional Service

Geese Chasers™ offers customizable clearing packages to suit the specific needs of your property and budget. All properties have their own set of challenges and variables; some clients need us seasonally while others need us year round. Once we speak with you to better understand the needs of your specific property; one of our professionals will create and send a custom plan to you to be approved.


Initial Clearing
The initial clearing is designed to make the quickest and most effective impression on the resident Canada Geese on your property. With our professionally trained dog handlers onsite seven days a week, harassing the Canada Geese multiple times a day - the birds will get the picture that your property is no longer safe and to clear out!

Length: 4 to 12 weeks
Clearings: Multiple daily visits, as needed


Maintenance
Once we have your property under control and have cleared the initial flock of residential Canada Geese we will move into our “Maintenance Phase.” Our continued daily harassment discourages other “Residential/Migratory” Canada Geese from taking up permanent residence on your property and indefinitely dissuades them from returning as their first experience onsite is being chased away by one of our highly trained border collies.

Length: Ongoing
Clearings: Daily visits, as needed


On-Call
The On-Call Program allows you to call/text Geese Chasers when you feel your property needs a clearing. These calls can be made between the hours of 8:00 AM and 3:00 PM. If EARLIER or LATER times are needed: Please call or email us the details of WHEN/WHERE you are seeing your unwanted feathery friends. Our regional manager will then change our dog handler’s routes accordingly UNTIL those Canada Geese stop coming at that time.

Length: Ongoing
Clearings: Usually within 2 hours after your call/text


Night Runs
IF/WHEN one of our professionally trained dog handlers identifies roosting piles onsite we will schedule “night runs” to chase any geese off of the property that are onsite after dark. These roosting piles look like piles of dog crap. This is because when the Canada Geese sleep they defecate, which creates these piles of unwanted geese droppings on your property.

Length: Ongoing
Clearings: Scheduled by regional managers or requested by clients who see geese “after hours”

Egg Addling/Egg Removal

Mating & Nesting Season is MARCH - JUNE

IF/WHEN you OR one of our professionally trained dog handlers spot a Canada Goose nest we will file for an Egg Addling Permit from the DEC, addle the eggs, wait for the parent geese to abandon the nest (as the eggs will slowly pass on their own after being addled) and destroy the nest so the parents don’t return and attempt to lay more eggs. This is the most HUMANE way of destroying a Canada Goose nest.

For high traffic areas like a school or office building, where the parent geese are hissing and chasing people which increases the probability of someone being injured. Another method approved by the USDA includes: removing the eggs; burying the eggs; and destroying the nest. This method tends to have faster results given the parent geese no longer have any eggs to sit on.

It is important to destroy the eggs as soon as possible as the gestation period for Canada Geese eggs is only 28 days. We do our best to addle them/remove them within the first 7-10 days of being laid. That way it’s still a yolk and not a prematurely developed bird.

This process is something that we as “Geese Chasers” don’t enjoy doing but accept as part of our job. Doing this helps control local Canada Geese populations in a humane manner. We LOVE the Canada Geese, if it wasn’t for them we wouldn’t be here. We do our best to be as respectful as possible to the Canada Geese while also fulfilling our duty to our clients: to provide a clean, geese free environment.

*** IF you have a nest on site or pair(s) of Canada Geese - DON’T WAIT - CALL NOW! ***

IF YOU HAVE A NEST THAT HATCHES - You are stuck with them until they can FLY! It is ILLEGAL to HARM goslings (baby geese) or REMOVE families of Canada Geese. They will be onsite for 70-90 days until the GOSLINGS grow their first set of flight feathers and the family flies away TOGETHER on their own.

Please note - The Canada Geese who unfortunately have their nests destroyed during this season will move on to find a safer place to nest again and raise their young. Most cases it happens within the same nesting season as they can mate and lay eggs from March to the end of June!

Fun Fact - Canada Geese are monogamous, they mate for life and live upwards of 35 years. They are habitual nesters so once they reach sexual maturity, find a safe place to nest and are successful in raising their young. They will return to the exact same place EVERY year to nest again.
