Martha’s Vineyard is home to a robust and growing goose population. Left unchecked, your property can be overwhelmed by Geese in days. One goose can eat up to three pounds of grass in one day and leave up to two pounds of droppings that contain dangerous bacteria and parasites. Besides destroying the turf and leaving droppings, geese can also be extremely aggressive, especially when they are protecting their young.
Our Eco-Friendly and Effective Goose Control Solution
There are many goose repellent techniques that utilize loud noise makers, foul smelling chemicals, or unsightly visual deterrents. At Geese Partners, our solution involves none of these strategies, we apply an eco-friendly spray that takes away the food source geese need to feed. When geese eat grass treated with our repellent, they experience a strong, but harmless, digestive irritation. Our solution contains an ultraviolet marker that the geese can see on the grass. They learn not to feed on the treated areas.
Along with this ability, geese are able to literally sleep with one eye open! They can shut down one half of their brain to rest, and can even adjust how deeply they sleep by how wide their eye is open or closed!
