How to rid your property of geese the humane way.
How to keep geese away from yard or property.
Canada Geese settle on golf courses, private ponds, and commercial retention ponds and remain only to create a nuisance. Each goose drops two to four pounds of excrement daily and creates tremendous noise.
The AwayWithGeese system is a new and innovative way to rid your property of nuisance geese without the use of harsh chemicals, dogs, reflectors, noise making devices or other concoctions. AwayWithGeese is self-contained, automatic and guaranteed to get rid of geese or your money back.
Background on Geese
The scientific name for Canada Geese is Branta canadensis. The birds often migrate in the fall, but isolated populations may reside year round. Nesting begins in March and April, in the riparian zone near a waterbody.
One goose can consume up to four pounds of grass per day, producing about three pounds of fecal matter per day. This can contribute to excessive amounts of nutrient loading because their feces contain 76% carbon, 4.4% nitrogen, and 1.3% phosphorus. These nutrients can cause harmful algal blooms in lakes from runoff. To make matters worse Cryptosporidium parvum, a protozoan linked to the feces of animals has caused over 400,000 sicknesses and a recorded six deaths (Worsnop, 1994).

The success of the product is based around a simple concept. At night, geese sleep in or near water areas where they feel secure from their predators (dogs, fox and coyotes). Placing an AwayWithGeese unit into the secure areas simulates the eye reflection of these predators and disrupts the geese's ability to sleep. The geese no longer consider the area "safe" and will simply move to another suitable area within a few days.
Geese are also lazy. They tend to stay close to their secure areas during daylight hours in order to minimize the distance they travel each day. AwayWithGeese is powerful enough to coax the geese into finding a different nighttime home far enough away to discourage daily commutes back to your lawn.
The unit automatically operates at night and produces an amber 360 degree beam of light directed at goose eye-level, then recharges itself during the day.
The light is unobtrusive to people. In fact, when seen at night, it provides a sense of satisfaction to human observers as it continues its vigil to encourage the geese to move on – along with their mess.

Water-based UnitWater-based Unit
The Water Unit has been designed to rid ponds and lakes of unwanted geese. The unit floats in the water and is tethered to a weight or anchor that you supply. Geese normally return to the water at night to sleep because it is safe from predators. The unit's flashing light alters the geese's sleep patterns which causes them to move to another pond.
1. The product floats in the water and works at night, 7 days a week
2. Effective goose deterrent works by altering sleep patterns causing them to move to another pond.
The Land Unit is designed to rid lawns, fields and gardens of unwanted geese. The unit is staked into the ground and covers an area that is in line of sight up to 3.5 acres. Geese that congregate on lawns in the early morning or night will find a new place to rest in short order.
1. Eliminates night and early AM congregating by disturbing the geese just enough to encourage them to move to another location
2. Stakes securely into the ground and may be placed anywhere in your lawn

How To Use
Away With Geese is the most effective, humane, and environmentally friendly way to eliminate your geese problems. Available for land or water, each unit is solar powered and emits an amber colored light , disrupting the sleeping pattern of geese, ultimately encouraging them to move to a new location. A single unit will effectively protect an area of 4 acres. It protects the property continuously with little to no maintenance. There is simply no other method available that measures up in effectiveness, safety, cost, or reliability.
4 Acre Coverage 4 Acre Coverage
The Away With Geese product has an effective range of at least 75 yards in any direction. One unit will service a pond that is up to 4 acres in size (about 450 x 450 feet) provided that all areas of the pond are within line-of-sight of the Away With Geese light.
Watch for Blind Spots
Some ponds may have inlets or bays where Geese can hide in the edges of the pond. In order to have the light reach these areas, special care must be taken when placing the Away With Geese unit so that hidden areas of the pond are within line-of-sight.
Use Multiple Units for Large Ponds or Difficult Areas.
Some pond shapes may require two or more units in order to provide complete line-of-sight coverage.
