What will scare geese away?
The most effective way to scare geese away is with trained goose-herding dogs. Herding dogs convince geese they are not safe from predators. This should only be done by specially trained dogs working with a handler. Dogs handled properly put geese in flight and the geese leave an area entirely.
How do you stop geese from pooping in your yard?
By placing a liquid deterrent around the edges of ponds and near your buildings or populated areas along with installing decoys in key locations, you can effectively prevent geese from ever returning. Add in netting and wiring in select locations and the only place you will see geese is flying majestically overhead.
What smell do geese hate?
