Geese and other Wildlife hazing is a tedious and difficult process. Hazing is the process of disturbing the animals sense of security to such an extent that it decides to move on. The hazing/harassment must be continuous and concentrated. The goal of hazing is to humanely convine the animal to leave its home or food source by becoming the animals worst neighbor. It is a time consuming task that involes convincing the animal that you are more of a nuisance than the possibility of the animal losing its shelter or its food source. The hazing/harassment must continue daily for as long as necessary to ensure the animal understands that it is not wanted; this could potentially go on for weeks.
It is recommended that you always check federal, state, and local laws before beginning hazing/harassing of wildlife. Always check when the wildlife nuisance typical nesting season is and begin the hazing/harassment process before or after their nesting season. Hazing/harassment is not always a guarenteed way to rid your property of wildlife so it is advised that you consult with your local Wildlife Removal company before you being the process. Before starting a hazing/harassment program, you should make a round of your homes attic and foundation to ensure all other animal free portions of your property are sealed up so as not to allow other places for the animal to run to and create an even bigger problem.
Types of hazing/harassment
Using visuals such as shining lights into the animals shelter is the least effective way to haze an animal but it has been used. The animal may just venture into areas of its shelter that the light isnt shinging on.
Using noise to deter an animal is known to be somewhat effective. The noise will need to be blared all day long and could possibly need to be played for several weeks. Most Wildlife Removal companies suggest playing heavy metal music with subwoofers placed right outside the animals shelter. Be prepared to move the noise to a different part of the dwelling as the animal moves further away to escape the noise. This method can be problematic for your neighbors and may be illegal depending on noise ordinance laws in your county.
Flooding the animals shelter can be good for ground dwelling animals but could always lead to damage to your homes foundation by the water. This technique should never be used for animals that have invaded your attic or chimney.
Dogs have been known to provide protection for their owners against other animal predators. Most wildlife animals will run when they encounter a barking dog and will be scared to return. However, this technique can potentially put your dog in danger of being attacked by the animal and could possibly lead to your dog catching diseases from the animal.
Urine has been used throughout history to deter animals from damage to property and crops. If a farmer has a particular animal invading their crops, they will sometimes use the predators urine of the nuisance animal as a deterant. Studies have shown that the use of predator urine reduces the amount of damage to your property. Urine can be helpful in getting rid of unwanted critters but should always be handled like any other chemical since it could be potentially hazardous to humans.
