Canada Geese are large magnificent birds that historically migrate between their traditional nesting grounds in Canada to their wintering grounds in the southern regions of the United States. Yet, populations of Canada Geese (Branta canadensis “maxima") have abandoned this traditional pattern and are not migrating between different wintering and nesting grounds.
While geese are an important component of our environment, they bring significant conflicts to many of our urban areas in Illinois. These conflicts include threats to aviation safety, consumption of field crops, feeding upon golf courses and lawns. They present threats to public safety from attacks as they defend their nests and from the accumulation of their droppings on lawns, athletic fields, and in parks.
As always, it is best to use preventative techniques BEFORE the problem gets started in an area. Once geese are established, it can become very difficult to deter them from a given area, particularly after nesting has begun. Think long-term management, not just short-term solution!
It is important to keep in mind that there is not one technique or strategy that can be used every time or everywhere for goose control problems. Resolving a problem requires an integrated management approach and cooperation from everyone including individuals, homeowners associations, communities and city/town councils. Combining the use of several techniques discussed in the following pages will greatly improve the effectiveness of dealing with human/wildlife conflicts.
