Is the light that Away With Geese emits annoying to people too?

The answer to this is a simple ‘no’. The light emits an amber light that is hardly noticeable to people. However, it is extremely unnerving to geese, as they have excellent and extremely sensitive eyesight, and choose to not reside by a consistent annoyance. Otherwise, the device is visually very unassuming; the base and housing are simple and blend in very well in the natural environment.


Will the Away With Geese product work year-round?

The product will provide continuous service year-round. The materials that we use in the construction of the product will hold up well against ice and snow, so you can keep the product outside in your pond or in your yard year-round. The light automatically recharges itself in sunlight and will keep its charge for up to 6 days without sunlight.


What if I have geese at my pond that have recently had goslings? Will the mother and goslings be deterred?

Mother geese will not forsake their goslings under any circumstances. However, after thirteen to fourteen weeks the goslings are weaned of their mother and capable of flight. At this point, Away With Geese will deter both the mother and the developed goslings.


Do I need to bring my Away With Geese in for the winter season?

No. You may keep the product in the pond throughout the winter, even when it freezes over. Away With Geese can be removed, however, in northern regions as geese in these areas migrate to the south. If removed, Away With Geese should be returned to the water in the early spring to continue protecting the water.
