For those of us in the still-frozen Midwest, spring may seem far away. But warmer temperatures – and new generations of baby birds – will be here before you know it: goose breeding season starts in February and extends through April.

Effective bird control can – and often should – start well before eggs hatch. By proactively managing nests and depredating eggs, you can head off a vicious cycle of breeding, nesting and aggression.

With breeding season around the corner, you may have questions about how to properly manage goose eggs in Indiana. Here is a quick look at how the permitting and registration process works in the state.

How to Register a Goose Egg Removal Permit in Indiana

Individuals and properties seeking to remove goose eggs in Indiana must register with the county where the eggs or nest are located. A permit is required before any work is done.

Once all information is submitted and a permit is issued, a state-licensed individual or contractor (like Wild Goose Chase Indy) may begin service. During the course of service, all information – including site visit dates and the number of eggs addled or nests destroyed – must be recorded.

After nesting season is complete, the data must be reported to the county. It is important to note that if a site was registered but no nests were destroyed, a report totaling “0” must still be filed.
