Goose Identification

With their long necks and legs, geese look like large ducks and are found in many of the same wetland habitats and backyard ponds. Their plumage comes in a variety of colors and, instead of quacking, they make a nasal honking sound. Two common types are the all-white snow goose and the brown Canada goose identified by its black neck, white underside, and white chinstrap markings.

Geese typically fly in large groups and can travel great distances throughout the year. They have adapted to urban living and are now found in parks, fields, yards, rivers, and lakes. After setting up a home base near a body of water, populations can surge rapidly.

Problems & Removal

The birds can be quite cocky when reacting to humans, becoming aggressive if they feel people are encroaching on their territory. In addition to the noise factor associated with large flocks of geese, these animals are not at all picky about where they leave their large, foul-smelling droppings. This waste carries disease and can pollute a substantial area. Since some species of these pests are federally protected, homeowners should not attempt removal on their own. Turn to the licensed professionals at Critter Control to prevent or stop problems caused by geese.
