Habitat modification involves physically altering property to make it less attractive to Canada geese. Modifications made to your property should focus on eliminating or reducing nesting sites and food sources, as well as the access between these items and your pond or lake.
People who feed geese need to be educated about the problems they create. When fed by hand, geese become concentrated, making them more aggressive toward people because they are expecting to be fed. The geese also become more susceptible to disease with artificial feeding. Public areas should have signs that read “DO NOT FEED WATERFOWL”.
Other control methods include: managing plants and grass, fencing and decoys.
