Are you concerned about the present population of resident canada geese you may have on your property or property you may be responsible to manage?

According to the United State Fish & Wildlife Service (USFA) “ Most of the 11 subspecies of Canada geese (Branta canadensis) are encountered in the lower 48 States only during the fall, winter and spring of the year and migrate to the arctic and sub-arctic regions of Canada and Alaska to nest. Some geese stay in the U.S. year around. The Service identifies “resident Canada geese” as those nesting within the lower 48 States in the months of March, April, May, or June, and reside within the lower 48 States in the months of April, May, June, July, and August. No evidence presently exists documenting inter-breeding between Canada geese nesting within the lower 48 States and those subspecies nesting in northern Canada and Alaska”

Large flocks of resident Canada geese can denude grassy areas, including parks, pastures, golf courses, lawns, and other landscaped areas where the grass is kept short and where there are ponds, lakes, and other bodies of water nearby. At airports, resident Canada geese have become a significant safety threat, resulting in dangerous takeoff and landing conditions, costly repairs, and fatal airplane accidents resulting from bird strikes. Excessive goose droppings are also a health concern, and have contributed to the temporary closure of public beaches in several States by local health departments. Agricultural and natural resource damage, including depredation of grain crops, overgrazed pastures and degraded water quality, have increased as resident Canada goose populations have grown.

We are licensed in specific canada geese control and canada geese depredation orders from the authorities (Nests and Eggs, Agricultural, and Public Health) designed to address resident Canada goose depredation, damage, and conflict management.

What is a Depredation or Control Order?

A depredation or control order is a Federal regulation that allows the take of birds without a Federal permit. Since migratory birds are Federally protected, all take normally requires a Federal permit
