Geesebusters vs. Other Methods
Border Collies (dogs)
For decades municipals, school districts, corporate building, golf
courses, etc. payed millions of $$$ for a service that in most eyes say,
don't work! Reason for this is that a border collie(dog) is not a
natural predator to birds. In our opinion anyone who said that a border
collie is suppose to resemble an arctic fox is only a dog breeder trying to
sell a $8,000 dog. Border collies must run multiple times a day as geese
return as soon as the handler leaves the property and this leads to
droppings. A method that can get quite expensive and still leaving you with
a mess. A dog is just a nuisance to geese as they can easily fly away when
the dog comes close, so this is not a real threat. Border Collies are
also ineffective against seagulls and brands (smaller goose) also dogs
can't be used year round ( molting season). To remove geese from water,
the handler must put the dog in a boat with a life vest, then paddle out
and chase after the geese hoping the dog barks. This is very ridiculous,
time consuming and also very dangerous. If you own a dog, you know what
the price of food is costing you today not counting vet bills, grooming and
don't forget the baby sitting time.
Geesebusters "animal scaring device" blows-out birds for 1/4-1/2 mile
radius and further. It's a threat that flies into the air and is equal to a
bird. Since birds are territorial they leave the area because of the
eagle. Border collies can never cover the ground that we can! Running
dogs is Now an out dated method! Our method controls nuisance birds
throughout the year and we're the only company to control molted geese (see
Egg Oiling vs Nest Removal
Egg oiling keeps geese on the nests for over 4 - 6 weeks some longer.
During this time geese are very aggressive towards any person that comes
within 30 feet of a nest. This method keeps the birds around all summer
along with last year's goslings (now adults) leaving droppings everywhere
and eating into your budget. The same geese return to the same location
every year, not moving them anywhere. Geese are harassed off the nests
with umbrellas and this stresses out the birds and causes them to be even
more aggressive towards humans. If egg oiling is not done properly,
goslings can hatch deformed. Also the active ingredient in the egg oiling
process is Oil, which in its basic format is very dangerous to our waters
and since geese use ponds and waterways as their refuge, the water may be
easily contaminated from the chemical oil. Question, If egg oiling worked,
then why are the numbers increasing dramatically every year?
Egg Oiling = Geese
When our method is used in the early part of mating season (late February),
we scare out pairs immediately before they get too comfortable and this
cuts down on pairs trying to nest in the coming weeks. A permit is first
filed with Fish & Wildlife Services. When a nest is found the one or two
eggs are thrown out before any incubation takes place and the nest is
removed. The area is conditioned with the "animal scaring device" and
whistle. This prevents geese from returning to the old nesting site.
Removing nests in areas not suitable for geese, by this method will prevent
geese from returning next Spring. After several seasons this problem
will be eradicated for good. The idea is to send the message to the
geese to move off your property and nest somewhere else, where they are not
a bother to you or anyone else. The actual removal of eggs and nest has
been cheaper and more effective.
We recommend to all our customers that
they remove all the nests from their sites.
Nest Removal = No Geese
This method is used by USDA for well over 10 years now, in which the USDA have
failed miserably in their attempts to control the bird population in the United States.
Geese are rounded up during the molting season (June-July), put into crates and then
carted off to the gas chamber.
The meat of the bird is then given to the homeless.
That's so kind of the USDA.
This is to justify the needless killing of these birds.
Lakes, ponds and golf courses will be clean for 4-5 weeks of geese until
late August when the other geese in the area grow their wing feathers back.
Geese will see a vacated lake, pond or your golf course and move right
on in, so this is the most disgusting method of all.   As you see our
method is very effective and very humane, where the killing of birds is
sinful and unnecessary.   What makes this method most alarming is in 2004
when we invented our "animal scaring device" Geesebusters contacted the
USDA.   We demonstrated our method at different locations with the USDA
biologist in New York.   They were very amazed on the effectiveness of our
product and then decided to buy.   We sold and trained them in Orange
County, N.Y.   At the same time we also sold a set-up to the Humane
Society of the United States.   Both party's to this day ignore this
method and refuses to contact us.   For over 15 years our Government has
poisoned, gassed and shot tens of millions of birds sinfully with the
Humane Society of the United States looking the other way.   The Humane
Society should be ashamed of themselves for their phony practices and their
ties with geese peace who's method is running dogs and oiling eggs.
Let the Grass Grow
Allow grass to grow taller at least 6 inches, geese don't like to walk
through tall grass. As you can see the picture's below, this is another
myth spread by USDA and Fish & Wildlife Services.
DeTect's MERLIN Aircraft Bird Radar system
85% of damaging and hazardous bird strikes at airports occur below 500 feet during
the aircraft's take-offs and landings.
Trailers like the one below can cost about $400,000 each, and buying enough
equipment to cover an entire airport can reach $2 million.
Wow $2 million, and all you get for that is to know where birds are.
I can look out my window with a cheap pair of binoculars and get the same results.
Planes are diverted causing delays costing millions of $$$ in lost revenue and
giving many travelers a headache by missing their connections.
For $ 2 million Geesebusters will eradicate any bird problems at any
airport for that price! The USDA controls all bird problems at our
airports. USDA is putting the air traveler and pilots at risk and costing
airliner millions of $$$ in engine repairs. JFK Airport uses a SUV to chase
birds off the runway (see below).
Look at these ridicules methods that tax payers are paying for and putting
our safety at risk.
New York Post shoot out at the JFK Airport
Goose Sound Deterrents
The recording sound of a goose or bird in distress can get very annoying when
this sound is repeated over and over during the day.
After a short time the birds will have no fear and quickly return with the
absence of a predator.
These devices can run a thousand dollars. Don't get our name mixed up
The "goosebuster" is the name for this recording device.
Geesebusters "animal scaring device" is visual and audio, a method that never wears out and works forever.
Cannons are used at airports and most farms.
This method is only marginally successful in scaring birds as the cannons
must be moved frequently.
Birds seem to find this method to be just a nuisance as they quickly return.
It's totally devastating to the neighbors who live next door,
and extremely annoying to all others who live in the vicinity.
The cannons are very loud, from 120 to 135 decibels.
The human pain threshold for noise is about 120 DB's.
Birds return rapidly as the cannons must be set to fire every five minutes.
This has a very negative effects on the neighbors.
Live Falcons and Hawks
Some of these bird company's charge well over $350.00 per hour, and that can get very expensive.
There is also much liability in this method (if any small domestic animals are in the area,
they may get attacked when the falcon or hawk is released).
This service can only use one falcon or hawk at a time and will lead to cleaning only a small area.
A live falcon and hawk can't scare geese.
Geesebusters low cost, "animal scaring device" covers 1/4 -1/2 mile radius per eagle,
multiple eagles can be used to cover even larger areas like airports, stadiums, race tracks and boardwalks.
Cut Out Dogs and The Plastic Owl
These picture's explain this method !!
Bird Netting, Stringing Mono filament Lines, on Buildings, Docks or
Other Areas to deters Seagulls from Landing and Roosting !
This is not a humane solution according to People for the Ethical Treatment of
Animals (PETA) and other animal rights groups.
Many birds get caught in the fishing line and died agonizing deaths.
You can also face fines of up to $15,000.00 for every federally protected
bird maimed or killed by the netting.
It does not deter the gulls and mono filament lines are also an eye sore.
Goose Repellent, Sprays
This is another inhumane solution.
Geese experience a digestive irritation, usually within 30 minutes
after they eat grass treated with flight control.
One gallon of spray will cost you over $250.00 and only cover 1 acre.
Your grass must be clear of debris and leaves before applying and this
is a time consuming process when this product must be re-applied over and over again.
This does not get rid of your geese, they still come back and look
for grass that has not been treated.
Geese will leave droppings on sidewalks and parking lots and will
still nest in these areas.
