Canada Geese can cause a lot of problems if left unchecked. With more geese living in urban and suburban areas away from their natural predators, their populations are doubling every 3-5 years. Just one goose will eat up to 3 lbs of grass in one day and leave up to 2 lbs of droppings that contain dangerous bacteria and parasites. Besides destroying the turf and leaving droppings, geese can also be extremely aggressive at different parts of the year while trying to protect their young.
It gives geese a visual warning - Because geese see the world in the ultraviolet spectrum, our repellent contains a UV marker. When the repellent is applied to your turf, the geese will see grass that's purple in color and speckled in pattern. This serves as a threat to geese, and they learn to distinguish between treated and untreated turf. But to humans, the turf looks completely normal. Additionally, it causes no harm to the grass.
It causes indigestion - If the visual threat alone isn't enough to keep geese away, the temporary after-effects will. When a goose consumes the grass treated with our repellent, it will experience digestive irritation within 20 minutes or so. It will bring no permanent harm to the goose whatsoever. They will refuse to eat any treated turf after they've experienced this stomach upset. Geese learn very quickly that it's within their best interest to avoid treated turf. The geese will move on to a different location.

"Andy is amazing and so is CJ. What nice guys, and incredibly thorough with their work! We had a bat issue and were desperate to get them OUT. Well, out they are! It was SO satisfying to watch the last few bats get evicted. Bye, felicia! This was the ONLY pest service who seemed SANE when telling us about the bats. others told us to LIVE HAPPILY with bats peeing and pooping all over our new home. No thanks!"
