What are the Geese Police and why do we have them?
Prior to working with Geese Police, Ginger Creek was innundated with Canada geese attracted to the water and the islands in the creek. Wherever there are Canada geese, there are goose droppings. Our residents' driveways and lawns were covered with geese feces. Geese feces usually contain the parasites cryptosporidium, giardia, coliform, and campylobacter and can be hazardous to people's and pet's health.
Canada geese grazing and trampling cause damage to native wetlands, degrade water quality from fecal contamination, and cause erosion that occurs when geese eat and trample vegetation on slopes adjacent to bodies of water.
Federal law protects Canada geese. It is illegal to harm geese, their eggs, or their nests in the United States without permission from the U.S. Fish and Wild Service (USFWS).
Geese Police get rid of Canada Geese humanely using working Boarder Collies and other methods for bird control.
Geese Police utilizes techniques perfected to have efficient and long-lasting results. Geese Police handpicks only the best highly trained working Border Collies. These trained dogs play a crucial role in controlling the Canada geese on our clients' properties.
Handlers are educated on the behavior of Canada geese and their migratory, nesting and breeding habits. This is the most successful goose control program available to address the problems Canada geese cause to the health of humans and the environment.
Ginger Creek is largely free of Canada geese. They no longer nest on the islands, linger in the creek nor habitually feed in the area. No longer are there vast amounts of feces across our driveways and lawns. It's now safer for our children and pets when outdoors.
Yes, we do still see regular migratory patterns of Canada geese stopping at Ginger Creek. That's the reason a sustained service by Geese Police is necessasry.
