We are a family owned and operated business that has developed this product, fine-tuned the design, and delivered exceptional customer service and care since 2005. As industry leaders with over 32,000 units sold and a 97% success rate, we feel incredibly confident in our product and its ability to solve your geese problem.

Our satisfaction guarantee can further assure you that you have nothing to lose in this investment in regaining control of your property. Here is how it works: Request a Property Analysis so you know how many units, which type and the placement that you’ll need. 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’re happy to 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.

No. In our 18 years in business no one has ever complained about the brightness of the light. It is an amber colored light that is very dim to you and me. However, geese have very sensitive eyesight (it is a defense mechanism that keeps them safe from predators), and the light is right at their eye level. When they don’t feel secure and able to rest at night, they relocate. Otherwise, the device is visually very unassuming; the base and housing are simple and blend in very well in the natural environment.

Unfortunately, it will not. Our units are designed to work with geese that are on/near your property at night. They are solar powered and turn off and charge during the day and then flash throughout the evening night (from dusk to dawn). We recommend that you observe the geese to see if they are around at night, or even in the dusk and dawn hours. If the geese are only there during the day, then our product is not the one for you. 

Installation and Troubleshooting

Take the light off 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 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 room or closet to see if it is flashing.

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 year-round. The light automatically recharges itself in sunlight and will keep its charge for up to 6 days without sunlight.

While not necessary, some may choose to bring the units in for the winter, especially in northern regions where geese migrate to the south. 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 the unit outside in the very early spring. The unit will deter geese that are present and also prevent geese from settling.

Mother geese will not forsake their goslings under any circumstances. However, after thirteen 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. Our 90-day trial period of our Satisfaction Guarantee is designed to allow for enough time for the goslings to develop and for the geese to subsequently leave. 

We are changing the patterned behaviors of animals, some of which are more established and ingrained than others. The units are achieving this change by altering the environment so that it is no longer comfortable for the geese. Sometimes this change happens right away, but it can take longer. This is the reasoning for the 90-day trial period that is built into our Satisfaction Guarantee.

About Us

Other geese deterrents do not permanently alter the environment for the geese. Geese are curious about and quickly grow accustomed to things like cutouts, string, or shiny tapes. However, our units are designed to alter the feel of the habitat such that the geese no longer feel secure and are motivated to leave. Other deterrents such as sprays wash away after one rain, require constant reapplication and runoff into the watershed. Our products are maintenance-free and environmentally friendly. 

We have been in business since 2008 and have always offered a Satisfaction Guarantee. 97% of the over 30,000 units we have sold have not been returned.
