Corporation Now Offers an Enjoyable Pond for Employees in St Paul, Minnesota
Thank you Away With Geese for reclaiming our pond in front of our office. Our employees are now able to enjoy the park like setting to picnic and walk around the pond. Last year the pond and outer area were overrun with geese and what they leave behind. From all the staff, thank you again.
The Most Cost-effective, Convenient, and Effective Product We Have Ever Used
We had approximately 20 geese that were taking over our amphitheater and pond in the middle of our Class A office space. The mess that was being left on a daily basis was extreme. We added one light in the middle of our pond the problem practically disappeared over night. We occasionally see one or two geese but never for more than a day. It has been the most cost-effective, convenient, and effective product we have ever used.

Facility Manager Finally Winning the Geese Battle at the Army Base
I would like to thank you on such a great product. I have purchased 3 lights, 2 for land and one for a pond, and I must tell you they work like a charm.
The geese which congregated around the pond have disappeared. We have tried a lot of products which claim to keep geese away but this is the only one that works.
Also, I had a light stop working, and your customer service was quick in sending me a replacement light at no charge. Kudos!

Water Authority: Increased Quality, Decreased Cost of Productions
We produce drinking water at very high standards at The Greater Johnstown Water Authority. The Land Manager of our three reservoirs and over 9,500 acres of watershed property fully endorses the effectiveness of the Away With Geese Water Unit. We as a company have been able to increase the quality of water in our Dalton Run reservoir while simultaneously decreasing the cost of productions by controlling the number of geese that call this area home. I am currently in the process of placing additional units on our largest reservoir, North Fork Run, due to our success with this product. We can report no issues with quality, reliability, or customer service and hope to replicate our results in other locations.

Overnight Success at in Minot Country Club Burlington, North Dakota
Have had little problems with geese in the past until we opened up a pond to show the water feature! Seems members and geese liked the change, we had removed trees and brush along the pond the winter of 2009 and a group of geese moved in the spring! Thru my Par Aid distributor, I ordered four Away With Geese lights installed them according to instructions the evening I received them and geese were not around the next day! Thru the season the geese would come around once in a while during the day but never stayed!
Big Money and Time Saved at Casablanca Golf Course in Mesquite, Nevada
The Casablanca Golf Course in Mesquite, Nevada has been overpopulated with Canada Geese for the last 10 years. We have tried numerous techniques in an attempt to scare them away and had failed miserably. We have spent thousands of dollars sweeping up wastes which resulted in an increase of man hours as well as running up hours on valuable equipment. My how the times have changed for we are NOW winning the battle thanks to AWAY WITH GEESE. I have been a golf course superintendent for 17 years and this is by far one of the most amazing products that I have ever used.
Seven Years of No Geese at Traditions Golf Club
We have had our units for seven years now. Within the first couple of months our geese number went from hundreds to none. Every once in a while we have a transient few that land but don’t stay.

Amazed Golf Course Superintendent at a Canadian Golf & Country Club
For the last fifteen years I’ve tried numerous products and methods to deter geese from congregating to the golf course. Some products are effective for a short period of time, but eventually the geese return. I also had a border collie named Meg for seven years, but they ultimately got used to her as well. After installing five Away With Geese units in my ponds in April 2010, I have to admit I was skeptical at first. But as the summer went on I was truly amazed at the results. I can truly say that we had a 99% decrease in the amount of droppings on the greens. Now this is only after one season, but I’m confident that the outcome will be the same.
THE Premier Golf Course of Charlotte, North Carolina is Geese Free!
Over the past 10 years the domestic Canada goose population in and around our 15 acre lake increased from a few birds to the point where there were 75 to 125 geese returning in the evening to roost. The amount of dropping these animals left was not only an unsightly mess, it was polluting our lake. We tried dogs, air cannons, and hired a professional trapper on more than one occasion to get rid of them. All of these methods had minimal short-term effect. But eventually the geese came back and seemed to being a few additional friends along with them!! We had reached the end of the line of options to get rid of them when we found Away With Geese. Tom Wells and his product are everything advertised. We could not be more satisfied. In January 2012, we placed 5 Water Units (in a strategic pattern suggested by Tom) in our lake and within 2 weeks, the geese were gone and have not returned.
I have personally witnessed the lights’ effect on the geese and it is amazing to see. Geese roost nearby or on the lake for the protection the water provides. When the lights start blinking at dusk, the geese obviously start to feel uncomfortable or threatened and begin to move further and further away from the water. They reach a point where they are too far away from the lake and feel in jeopardy of land-based predators. When they reach this point, they start making all kinds of noise and get up and fly away…all of them….it’s great! Away With Geese works!
Night and Day differences at Eagle Crest Golf Club
Geese control has been an issue that Eagle Crest Golf Club has had for years. Hundreds of geese flood our course each year, damaging the fairways and greens; leaving a mess for our patrons. Thanks to Away with Geese sponsoring the club, we have been able to install 8 floating units to help with our geese control issue, and they have been truly amazing. Since installing the floating units, our greens and fairways are healthier, and our golfers can’t stop asking how we eliminated the geese. Knowing that this is a humane way to deal with any geese control issue is why we are excited to continue working with this ground-breaking product.
A Direct Reference from One Happy Client to Another!
Dear Mr. M: I can appreciate your careful investigation into the Away With Geese devices. Not everything advertised on the Internet is what it seems. I even called and spoke to Tom Wells, founder of the company before purchasing. In this case the product is all that it claims to be. We have tried many things to discourage the geese. Some were pretty weird; I will not enumerate them. We installed the lights August 1, 2010 when we had approximately 250 geese on and around the lake. By August 15 we had no geese except for one with a broken wing and its mate. The original lights are still functioning. The lights are well designed and are made of durable materials. There is no maintenance. Install them with an anchor and let them do their job. Promptly replace the lights should they succumb to vandals or simply wear out. The geese will return if the lights are gone. Life is much simpler now that residents are not harping about the geese and the mess that they leave.
I recommend the lights without qualification.
Another New Jersey Yard Reclaimed from Geese!
I would like to commend you on the Away With Geese product — it is simply amazing! We have lived in northern NJ with our beautiful property that abuts a large pond being COVERED with goose droppings, year after year. As I mentioned, we’d tried a few things, but nothing has worked like your product. We tried “shiny tape” that only worked for a few days and then not at all. We send our dogs out to chase the geese back into the pond, but can only do that when we happen to be downstairs in the room that overlooks the yard and see them there. Most of the time we are in our home office on the other side of the house, so by the time the dogs chase them, the yard is already covered with droppings (again!). I spent a few hours last week walking my 2-acre property and picked up 8 bags of droppings – ugh!
We now have our yard back! What amazed us the most is how quickly we saw a difference. After putting the unit into the ground, the very next day we saw only a small handful of geese during the day compared to upwards of 40 the day before! Since then the number has continued to diminish and over the last two days, no geese at all. We’ve had the unit in the ground for less than a week. What a wonderful product this is!
Thanks again for creating something this easy that really works!

Clean Shoes in Pennsylvania after 10 Years of Mess
We purchased your product several weeks ago and sure enough, it has worked as advertised. We have struggled with Brantas Canadensis for ten years on our two-acre lake and never could rid ourselves of the 50-200 individuals that claimed our yard as home. After installing the Water Unit, we saw the geese numbers decline to zero in just a week. You sell a great product that I wish I was aware of years ago. Thank you for keeping the bottoms of my sandals a whole lot cleaner.
Enjoying “Soft Lights” and No Geese at Two Ponds in Michigan
We live on a 40 acre parcel in Michigan and have two large ponds, 2+ acres and 5+ acres. We tried everything to get rid of the geese and then discovered your Away With Geese product. We installed 5 lights and saw a significant drop in goose traffic the first season. The second season we saw a few geese land but none stayed. It has been one of the best investments we have made as we use our ponds all summer. Also, we were skeptical as to how bright the blinking lights would be and were pleased with how soft the lights were. And excellent customer service.
Frigid but Geese-Free on the Lake in North Carolina
I’ve used a Residential Unit on about a 3-acre lake for almost two years. The resident geese left in less than a month. Since then a few will stop by occasionally during the day but leave by sundown and generally do no come back. Overall, I am very satisfied with the results from use of the Residential Unit. It has performed well in temperatures as low as 3F. The only interruption was when
the solar portion was covered with snow/ice for a few days during constant below freezing temperatures that apparently impaired the charging function. I now will check it under similar conditions or just take it inside for short periods where necessary. I highly recommend the Away with Geese products to anyone bothered by these messy pests.
Geese are Gone from Neighbors’ Pondside Property too!
“We have owned the Away With Geese light for two years. The results have been very impressive to date. Two years ago we had just over 30 geese nesting in and around our 1/4 acre pond. Once the geese have goslings its over. They might run if chased but they still stay near their nesting sight. Once we had the light which we purchased the following early spring, the geese stopped nesting in our pond. If they can see the light they will nest elsewhere. Our one light protects one neighbor’s pond as well as ours. Our neighbor on the other side has a pond protected by thick brush so the geese can’t see the light. The geese don’t annoy them and since we are fenced they will not come over to our side. So if the geese will not nest at your pond, they won’t stay. The light will blink all night every night for a week without sun. One sunny day will recharge it to full charge. In summary, the light works great. If something would happen to it we would order another one immediately.
Homeowners Association Rescues Families from Geese in Milford, Ohio
Our community had a family of 5 geese literally take over our retention pond area, surrounding yards and sidewalks. The geese pulled out the turf, leaving behind dead grass and an unbelievable amount of unhealthy residue. Families had to walk in the street in order to avoid the geese and what they left behind. After installing just 1 Away With Geese Water Unit in the pond, our problem was solved in less than 2 days. They just disappeared and thanks to Away With Geese we were able to do this in a very humane way.
This is the third year that our HOA has used the Away With Geese light system and it continues to work. We have it installed early in the spring and it gets removed late fall before the pond freezes. It continues to work efficiently. Sometimes the geese will “stop by” during the day, but they always leave at night. Once they get tired of having to find a different place to sleep and next, they don’t come back. And guess what, NO RESIDUE!. It’s one of the best investment our HOA has made. I have had numerous people contact me regarding the product and I always give it a 2 thumps up. I would highly recommend this simple light system. Families can now walk to the pond area, sit on the benches and enjoy the entire area without fear of stepping in the unknown. Thank you Away With Geese!
No More Lakeside Geese or Dangerous Deterrents in Kokomo, Indiana
“Our goose population was holding steady at approximately 100. Homeowners around our lake had resorted to fireworks, flare guns and nylon lines strung a foot above the ground between stakes to discourage the geese. Needless to say all of the methods were disturbing, dangerous and unsuccessful.
Then we installed two of your floating Away With Geese devices in our small lake on August 1, 2009. Within two weeks following the installation of your devices our geese were gone and we have not been bothered by them again. Your product proved to be everything you claimed.
I appreciate your attention to my questions and the fine manner in which your firm conducts business.”
Lakefront Relaxing (Not Cleaning Up!) in Maine
I believe this product to be a wonderful investment for any area that has geese problems. We were trying to have an enjoyable and relaxing time at our lake, but each time we spent the day cleaning up after the geese. We would end up with almost a wheelbarrow full at times. So much for relaxing!
At first when we ran across your website and seen the testimonials, we were thinking, “This is too good to be true”. But with all the labor and sprays wasted, we figured it was worth a try. I am so grateful that we did, it has worked out tremendously! We barely see any evidence of geese being around our property. Our neighbor was so impressed that they also invested in the light. Now other lake residents have seen our good fortune and requested your information. So, thank you very much for a wonderful miracle product and for giving us our lovely relaxing Dering Lake back!
Sanity Restored for Tractor-Wielding Doc in Boston!
We live on an acre of land that abuts a wetland. About ten years two geese made that wetland (and our lawn) their home. This summer I counted 28 geese on my lawn. You can imagine the filth associated with that number plus the fact that they were destroying the grass’ roots… My first attempt to remediate the situation was to drive my lawn tractor after them until they sought shelter in the wetland. This worked for a while, but two things occurred. First, my neighbors began to worry about my sanity as I drove wildly around the yard. Second, the geese had more patience than I and would merely wait ten minutes after my disappearance and then nonchalantly return to eating my grass.
I checked with my golf club’s greens keeper who suggested Away With Geese. I installed the device. What happened next was interesting. After three days the geese no longer appeared on my lawn. My neighbors and I were stunned by that development. There was peace on my lawn after all for the next two months. I have seen some geese on the lawn from time to time, which indicates that they are still living in the wetland, but they have been conspicuously absent from my lawn. I can only say thank you for Away With Geese and for the time you spent on the phone with me. Your advice was ‘spot-on’ and I appreciate your sharing your expertise with me.
Lawn and Pond Reclaimed in Pennsylvania
My wife and I moved into our home in January of this 2012. We were thrilled to finally have 3 acres of land plus a large pond. By April we had a few geese and within a few weeks we had more than twenty. We were under siege with droppings and honking. We tried all sorts of methods to rid our pond and property of these geese. Nothing worked!! Then, while searching the Internet for methods to chase them away, we saw your product. We considered ordering one light to see if it really worked but felt “if it seems too good to be true it probably is”. Finally in desperation we ordered one of your Away With Geese lights for our pond. We read all the testimonials and decided to try it. The first night I put it out in our pond we came home after dark and found most of the geese standing on one side of the pond staring at the light. . After 4 nights we were geese free!!! This is the third summer with our light and although neighbors have geese problems, we don’t! I still have to occasionally chase them during the day but they don’t nest at my house and that’s the key. We never would have guessed they hate the light as much as they do. It really works!! If anything would happen to our light we would replace it immediately! Thank you for a great product that does all it claims to do.
No Longer Sharing Retirement Home with 75 geese in Epping, New Hampshire
“I can honestly say that I cannot be without my “Away With Geese” unit because it does just exactly that, it removed the population.
Our first Spring season at our waterfront lake home was last year and we were inundated with geese, anywhere from 50 to 75 and what a mess of poop everywhere, over the grass and sandy beach. They nested just a few feet from the house, perhaps from past history. We assumed it was because the property was vacant for a year. We tried everything. They literally took over our half acre and 100 ft of beach.
In a conversation we were told about “Away With Geese” and once looking over the website we ordered our unit without hesitation and sooooo glad we did. We ordered one that went in the water, and actually liked the blinking light as it floated over the water with a tether.
They had their young (we didn’t order soon enough) but within a month they no longer returned. It’s absolutely the only thing that does the job in getting rid of geese without harm.
They are aggressive and do not react to noise or yard statues or balloons of any kind. They do, however, react to the Away With Geese unit.
I would absolutely advise anyone who has geese problems to get one.
All I can say is ….”don’t wait”. We now enjoy the grass and the beach sand all of which is what our retirement home was all about.

Lakeside Homeowners Say “Bye-Bye” to 200 Geese in Kentucky
Crestview Lands in northern Kentucky had a terrible geese problem a few years back. We had nearly 200 of the birds damaging property and causing a potential health hazard, not to mention their nasty droppings. We are now using the light system designed by Away With Geese to keep the geese off our lakes and property and it is working very well. Thank you for a great product!
Sittin’ at the Dock of the Geese-Free Bay in Lake Orion, Michigan
Thanks for the contact and of course your excellent product. You guys have a great product! Convinced my relatively close neighbor to purchase same. Now our bay is without geese. We do not care where the geese went, just as long as it is not around us. Your product will sell itself…once the word gets out. Thanks again.
Spending Pondside Time with Grandchildren, Not Geese!
Your product is amazing! So far the geese have steered clear of our yard and moved to the otherwise of the pond. I recommended your product to our neighbor! Thank you for such a clever invention. Hopefully, the grandchildren will not have to step around goose poop this summer! I am one happy homeowner who doesn’t have to live with little wire fences all around our yard.
Flower Planters and Pool are for Flowers and Swimming Again
I had geese bury 3 eggs in a flower planter next to the house just below a picture window and above a swimming pool. I do not have to explain the tremendous mess that they left around the pool on walkways and all over. I installed three Away With Geese lights on my flat room in 3 different sections and I have not been visited on my property by any more geese. They do not even fly over my property and house any more. It is amazing and so efficient.
Connecticut Peninsula is No Loger a Geese Haven
“We purchased a very nice property at a beautiful lake in CT. Our property is about one acre: a peninsula that goes into the lake with an area of about 15 yards by 30 yards of grass surrounded by water. Needless to say, a heaven for these creatures!
We could not walk the property when we first moved in without, even being careful, stepping into their presents! In a desperate move, I searched the Internet and found your product.
The fact that you guaranteed your product is what made me get it and we are very happy with the results. Since we had ours and our neighbors stopped seeing geese in our yard, they started buying the product and now there are at least 5 or 6 more of your units in our lake!
I must say that there is a couple of geese that appear to be immune to it though! This couple continues to come into our place!
Thank you for a great product!
Enjoying the Other Birds, Gardens, and Property Again
“The geese are gone! The large flocks (30+ up to 90 geese) stopped coming within a few days after I installed the unit on my 1-acre pond. A flock of 6-8 came for a couple of weeks, but now come intermittently and do not stay long, nor do they come up into the yard or flower beds as they used to do. Other waterfowl do not seem to be deterred; we had two pairs of Wood Ducks in our nesting boxes, and even had a Cormorant pass through for a few days. After many years of goose infestation, I can enjoy my property again.
Now, if you could only come up with an Away With Deer product…”
1 Light, 3 Weeks, 0 Geese, and a Happier (and Healthier) Dog in Connecticut
To say that I am a satisfied Away With Geese customer is an understatement. We moved to a home on a lake about a year ago. As soon as we moved in we noticed the geese and they certainly loved our backyard! I would try to send my dog out to scare them, but our golden retriever was more afraid of them than they were of him. In fact, the geese didn’t seem too bothered by him at all. Unfortunately, the mess they would leave on our lawn daily, which was disgusting to us, also became a delicacy for our dog.
Thankfully my research uncovered Away With Geese. I was skeptical, but I was willing to try almost anything! The instructions indicated that it might take a few weeks to work. I will say each week the number of geese on our lawn lessened after installing the light. By week three they were gone. This past December, my husband took the light out thinking the geese had all gone down south. Within a day they were back! I put the light back in, and just like that, they were gone again.
When spring came, some new geese tried coming onto the lawn again, but they soon learned we were not a friendly environment and the light caused them to leave. This light has been a godsend. It works so well that I have donated one to our lake association beach. I have suggested the light to neighbors who have been very happy as well. I am a big fan of this product.
Using a 5 Gallon Bucket for Something else in Lakeside Michigan
We live on a lake in Michigan and we were using a five gallon pail to clean up the waste every day. We tried ropes, everything, nothing worked.
I think we’ve had the light for going on 4 or 5 years now. We put it on the dock, they come for maybe a night or two and then that’s it, they hate it.
Nerves are Calmed With Geese Gone
I was so tired of the mess all these geese were making! We live at a lake & they wanted to live here on our property day and night. There was a lot of them & they were getting on my nerves with their mess. Couldn’t walk without watching for their piles. I got the Away With Geese and now it is so peaceful! The soft light is not disturbing to our night scenery. They found another home within a couple days. It is so nice to not have them under foot! Have had it for around 6 months & I love it! It’s amazing!!!
SCHOOLS AND PUBLIC PLACES
Principal Saves School Children from Health Risks of Geese
This is the product I have used with great success! The makers are Away With Geese and their website is www.awaywithgeese.com. At the time I used this, I was the principal of an elementary school with 500 children. We had a large field with the neighboring Shiverick’s Pond as home to our feathered friends. On any given day, there could be 20 or more geese on the field. As a result, we had an ongoing problem with children tracking the goose poop into the building after playing in the field outside. It was everywhere! The hallways were a mess but worse than that, children were sitting on classroom rugs that had been walked across with shoes contaminated by the poop. It dried from the shoes and littered the rooms. It was a health risk. We tried a number of things from air horns to coyote statues but nothing worked. A parent found this solution and offered to purchase it for our school. We had nothing to lose. We installed a land-based unit. Within a couple of weeks, there were less and less geese landing until there were none — except for a random day when a few might forget they were not invited! It was odd to have a day here or there with a sighting but the greater problem was solved.
I would have a recommendation though as you consider a purchase. Follow the guidelines the owners give regarding the number of units needed. We had only one and I think we would have benefited from two. Instead, we moved the unit on occasion if we found that the geese were starting to randomly land. I have moved on to another school but would not hesitate to use this product again if the need arose. And one more thing- the owner is genuinely interested in having the unit work for you! When we had a problem with the flashing mechanism, he stood by the product and immediately sent a replacement at no charge.
I am glad to give my support of this product. If I can be of any further assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

High School Athletic Complex Now Safe and Clean in Cincinnati, Ohio
“When a large flock of geese suddenly began gathering on Elder High School’s 65-acre athletic complex two years ago, leaving droppings where students practiced and played games, the school’s facilities manager, Dick McCoy, knew he needed to do something fast.
‘The first day I saw 20 geese,’ he said. ‘The next day I saw 30 or 40 geese. After a week there were about 60 geese and they were all over the fields. It was taking hours each day to clean up after them.’
In the fall of 2011, just a few weeks after the initial geese appeared at Elder, the school bought three of Wells’ lights at $350 apiece and placed them around the athletic complex where they can protect up to three acres of space each.
‘After two days of the lights, I never saw them again,’ said McCoy, who now uses the lights during the spring, summer and fall to keep the geese from coming back. He also added a fourth to the school’s tennis courts after the geese showed up there.
