Minneapolis is home to many businesses, parks, golf courses, and other areas geese love.
Unfortunately, we seem to have many of the same hobbies as our feathered friends: unwinding on the fairway, having lunch in the park, and going for a dip at the local beach. This wouldn’t be an issue if not for goose droppings containing E. coli, aggressive nesting pairs, the higher potential for auto accidents, and other safety hazards brought about by high Canada Goose populations.
To maintain Minneapolis parks, beaches, golf courses, and more, the geese need to be humanely removed. There’s simply no way to peacefully coexist with geese in high-traffic public spaces. Yet, there are plenty of areas in Minneapolis for geese to lead a peaceful existence far away from people. That’s why goose removal in Minneapolis is best achieved hazing or harassment.
Get Rid of Geese in Minneapolis
Driven Wild Goose Control’s unique goose control services for Minneapolis utilize trained dogs who haze the geese over and over until they decide to relocate for good. This type of goose removal works long-term with minimal maintenance, and it is a completely humane goose control method. Our dogs don’t lay a paw on the birds; their presence is enough to evoke a predator-prey feeling in the geese. They respond by leaving the area to find a more suitable place to live and breed.
We approach goose removal in Minneapolis in much the same way as we would in any other city. We do recognize, though, that Minneapolis is a more highly populated city. As a results, we take special precautions to ensure our dogs’ work doesn’t disturb employees, residents, or city workers. Our dogs are pets first and employees second; they are always friendly and willing to be approached by members of the public. We use these opportunities to educate curious minds about the program we’re using and why it’s a win-win for humans and geese.
Goose Nest Management for Minneapolis Businesses and Parks
Driven Wild Goose Control offers goose nest management services for Minneapolis parks, businesses, and other clients. These services may include increased patrols prior to nesting season, which makes the area less desirable for egg laying, or egg addling shortly after a nest has been made.
Egg addling is a process whereby the eggs laid by a female goose are prevented from becoming viable. This is done by applying a thin coating to the surface of the egg that prevents oxygen from entering, thus not allowing the components of the egg to turn into a gosling. This method is humane when done correctly and is non-lethal. Eggs are tested by Driven Wild prior to being addled, and any eggs that have already become viable are not addled.
Egg addling in Minneapolis is a good option for decreasing goose populations. It prevents the female goose from immediately laying another set of eggs; thus, addling one nest will prevent one breeding pair from having any offspring on your property that season.
Geese can get particularly nasty during nesting and hatching season when they feel they need to protect their young from humans. Our nest management services can prevent geese from nesting on your property in most cases. And if you’ve already noticed nests on your property, our egg addling team can prevent the hatching of dozens of gosling on your property.
