Canada Geese settle on golf courses, private ponds, and commercial retention ponds and remain only to create a nuisance. Each goose drops three to four pounds of excrement daily and
creates tremendous noise.
THE SOLUTION - AWAY WITH GEESE
Dock-Roof Unit with bracket
|The Away With Geese system is an innovative and proven way to rid your property of nuisance geese without the use of harsh chemicals, dogs, reflectors, noise making devices or other concoctions. Away With Geese is maintenance-free, solar powered and guaranteed to get rid of geese or your money back. |
Effective and Trouble-free Goose Deterrence
The success of the product is based around a simple concept. At night, geese sleep in or near water areas where they feel secure from their predators (dogs, fox and coyotes). Placing an Away With Geese unit into the secure areas simulates the eye reflection of these predators and disrupts the geese's ability to sleep. The geese no longer consider the area "safe" and will simply move to another suitable area within a few days.
Geese are also lazy. They tend to stay close to their secure areas during daylight hours in order to minimize the distance they travel each day. Away With Geese is powerful enough to coax the geese into finding a different nighttime home far enough away to discourage daily commutes back to your lawn.
The unit automatically operates at night and produces a solar-powered amber 360 degree beam of light directed at goose eye-level, then recharges itself during the day. Each units has coverage of 3.5 acres.
The light is unobtrusive to people. In fact, when seen at night, it provides a sense of satisfaction to human observers as it continues its vigil to encourage the geese to move on – along with their mess.
All Away With Geese units are:
- satisfaction guaranteed. You will be satisfied, or we’ll give you your money back.
- maintenance-free. The lights are solar powered; once placed, the units require no upkeep.
- NOT bothersome to people. The light is very annoying to geese, as they have incredibly sensitive eyesight, but to humans it is dim and scarcely noticeable.
- environmentally friendly and have no impact on the natural landscape.
- humane. Though they annoy the geese enough to relocate, they have no ill effect on them.
- cost effective and sustainable. Once placed properly, they will put an end to your geese problems, once and for all.
There is an Away With Geese unit for every type of landscape:
- Water Unit- for ponds, lakes and retention areas.
- Land Unit- for private lawns, fields and gardens.
- Sports Unit- for athletic fields, industrial or public area.
- Dock-Roof Unit- for docks or flat rooftop buildings.
"We had nearly 200 geese destroying our property. Away With Geese eliminated the problem."
"Your device has actually increased the quality of life on our lake. We can now enjoy our shoreline for the first time. Thank you, thank you, thank you!"
"It is absolutely amazing!
We do not have any geese on one lake anymore and just a few stragglers on our other lake because someone keeps feeding them… but what a difference…"

"I purchased a land-based unit in August 2007 and was extremely impressed with its effectiveness in ridding our lake property of geese. In fact, my skeptical neighbors eventually credited the unit with ridding our entire shoreline of the perennial nuisances!"

"I would like to commend you on the Away With Geese product -- it is simply amazing! We now have our yard back! What amazed us the most is how quickly we saw a difference. 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!"

"We have a three acre pond that was covered with geese every fall, at dusk. They made a racket and a mess. We decided to give the "Away with Geese" light a try. Why not? It has a 90 day money back guarantee. We put the light in the center of the pond and within 3 nights, the geese were gone. We are very happy with the light. It is safe and environmentally friendly. Best of all, it really does work!"
"I ordered my first Away with Geese last year. I was truly amazed how a newly dug 1 acre pond on my farm was transformed into an apparent goose farm seemingly overnight. I was desperate. Within 2 weeks of placing your unit in the center of my pond, the geese were gone.......and haven't yet come back. Revenge is sweet. It worked so well that I am ordering another one for a 2nd pond at my home in NYC . Your new design is great and your product works fantastic. Now all I need to do is convince my local golf course to get a few of these so I can come home with clean shoes."

Background on Geese
The scientific name for Canada Geese is Branta canadensis. The birds often migrate in the fall, but isolated populations may reside year round. Nesting begins in March and April, in the riparian zone near a water body.
One goose can consume up to four pounds of grass per day, producing three to four pounds of fecal matter per day. This can contribute to excessive amounts of nutrient loading because their feces contain 76% carbon, 4.4% nitrogen, and 1.3% phosphorus. These nutrients can cause harmful algal blooms in lakes from runoff. To make matters worse Cryptosporidium parvum, a protozoan linked to the feces of animals has caused over 400,000 sicknesses and a recorded six deaths (Worsnop, 1994).
Wild ducks, geese, and shorebirds are the natural reservoir for influenza A virus according to an article published by the Center for Disease Control. Click to read. Also, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations published THIS article about how to prevent goose diseases. The Go Ask Alice website had an interesting article on the health risks associated with Geese here.

We do require that you try the product for at least 90 days
and that you return it before 180 days after purchase.
There are a couple of reasons for this trial period:
1. Geese will not forsake their goslings.
The Away With Geese unit works best when placed before you have eggs or baby geese present, or just after the goslings take flight (about 90 days after birth).
2. Positioning of the unit is important.
We will help you determine the optimum placement of your unit. Every property and pond is different. We can help you eliminate blind spots and advise about certain areas such as those with steep banks, docks and trees.
Using the product with our assistance for 90 days should take care of your problem geese. If it doesn't, simply return it for a full refund within 91 to 180 days from date of purchase.
