The scope of nuisance bird problems is as diverse as the types of businesses that have to deal with them. These include anything from a single nest obstructing an entryway to an infestation of thousands birds roosting on building ledges. Getting rid of these birds is essential because they cause BIG problems impacting the health and well-being of people who work there as well as jeopardizing the integrity of building structures. At Wild Goose Chase, we have the experience and staff to help you resolve/fix these problems.
Since 1998, we have successfully helped our customers manage the negative impact of wild Canada Geese, seagulls and other nuisance birds upon their properties. The Wild Goose Chase team, through years of experience and research, has formulated an approach that is both highly successful and conscientious. In fact, we are one of the first companies to develop a truly “integrated approach” which has proven most effective and humane in managing bird populations according to the Wildlife Society.
Wild Goose Chase offers effective control methods to protect your employees and property
from harm and damage caused by unwanted birds.

This term is used to define and convey the level of commitment birds have to various locations where they nest, roost, eat and spend time. It is necessary to understand bird behavior and their attachment to these locations in order to determine the most effective way to get them to leave and prevent them from returning.
Heavy Bird Pressure: This level indicates a very high level of commitment. It usually refers to locations where birds find protection from the elements. It may be where they were born and have established nests; a place they consider home. Birds will not be easily deterred from heavy pressure areas.
Medium Bird Pressure: These locations do not hold the same commitment as those where birds nest or roost. But, because these areas might provide a place to rest or might be a source of food, birds are committed to spending time and returning to these locations.
Light Bird Pressure: This level of commitment is low. If the location is convenient and unobstructed birds may enjoy a time of loafing. But it will not hold the same importance as the places where they roost, nest or eat.
Dealing with problem birds has become commonplace for many businesses and owners of properties. This can be particularly difficult when their properties provide open green lawns, large bodies of water, parking garages and loading docks. These areas are often gathering places for the intrusive presence of nuisance geese, seagulls and other bird species. Large populations of these species can have a detrimental impact on the environment and be a hazard to public health, as well as pose liability risk due to slips and falls or attack incidents. Wild Goose Chase has worked with canine teams at beaches in both Illinois and Wisconsin to keep seagulls from using the beaches for loafing and foraging. By using our canine teams, we have seen a drastic improvement in water quality, and our program has significantly lowered the number of swimming bans.
