RESIDENT CANADA GOOSE NEST &EGG DEPREDATION

If you have problem Geese in your area & want to do something about it.

Here is the starting information, the legally correct way to do it.

Please share this info, Face book, Twitter, All your contacts and friends, and Forums. People are getting sick form Goose droppings in grassy areas. When lawn mowers throw it up in the air the operator breaths this dust in. If you are a Golf player you know the deal. In some areas there are so many Geese, they cause traffic problems. This web site works for most any state. It covers the lower 48 States and the District of Columbia.

And please don’t feed the wild life.

Go to:

WWW.dgif.virgina.gov

Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries.

Click on: Wildlife Information

Click on: Nuisance & Problem Wildlife

Click on: Canada Geese

There are several ways to destroy the eggs. A personal recommendation is to affix a small, thin nail to a broom handle and simply approach the nest and poke one small hole in each egg. And allow them to sit for full term, other wise they will rebuild.

I do not recommend completely destroying the nest because the goose pair will only rebuild, possibly in another area where you are not authorized to destroy eggs.

Please take time to read through the information on the website, get informed and keep it legal and humane.

You must register each year prior to destroying nests/eggs. You may register anytime between January 1 and June 30 of the year in which your activity will take place.
