As a member of your city’s parks or public works department, you are no doubt familiar with Canada geese and the effects their presence has on your city.
Goose Control for City Parks
In city parks, geese can cause major issues. They inhabit sports fields and leave droppings everywhere. Children and their families encounter these droppings while trying to play a game or spectate, and it can ruin the experience for everyone.
Goose droppings on a beach prevent children from being able to play in the sand and relax in the sunshine. This concern is secondary, though, to health and environmental concerns. Geese are suspected of being a major cause of an increase in high fecal coliform bacteria at beaches and in other bodies of water. If concentrated enough, these bacteria can reduce the oxygen in the water to a level that kills fish and other aquatic life. They can also indicate a higher risk of pathogens in the water. These pathogens cause diseases such as ear infections and gastroenteritis. The last thing we want as a community is sick children, but this is a real possibility if they are swimming in affected water.
