Do you have video of how to install the Industrial Unit and Industrial Cage?

We do and once you see it, we hope you’ll find it to be quite easy.


Can you give me a referral to someone who is currently using Away With Geese?

We hear success stories from people all the time; often they thought the satisfaction guarantee sounded too good to be true, tried it out (there’s nothing to lose!), and were then amazed to see their geese finally be deterred. Take a look at our page of Sucesses to see others’ reviews for yourself. Our products are designed for a number of settings that may be just like yours, so go ahead and read up on testimonials from the Corporations, Golf Courses, Residences, and Schools and Public Places.


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.


I’ve tried a lot of things that haven’t worked. Why will this be any different?

We often talk to people who say their garage is full of products that they thought would work and they don’t want to be disappointed again. We tell them, and you, that you have nothing to lose. We have a 97% success rate, and stand behind our product with a satisfaction guarantee. This is what we ask that you do: request a placement study so you know what’s right for your property. Then go ahead and follow our recommendations for your property and give Away With Geese a try. If you are not happy with the results for any reason give us a call at 513.941.6730; we’d love to help and troubleshoot with you. If after 90 days you are still not happy with the results, you have until 180 days from the date of purchase to return it to us, and get your money back.

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. You can find detailed instructions on winterizing an Away With Geese Water unit here. If removed, be sure to turn off the unit while storing inside for the winter. Continue protecting the water by turning the unit back on when returning to the water in the very early spring.


Is the light that Away With Geese emits annoying to other birds?

No. It will not bother other birds- ducks, herons, and all other birds will not be affected.


How do I turn the unit on or off?

Take the light off of the unit and turn it up-side-down. Look for a small circular hole on the bottom side of the light in the orange plastic. The on/off switch is inside this hole. Open up a paper clip and insert it into the hole until you feel the click of the button being pushed. The unit only needs to be turned off if you are not using it, i.e. bringing it inside for the winter. To test whether it is on or off, take it into a dark closet to see if it is flashing.
