Goose Roundup Season Has Arrived: Here’s How to Plan Ahead

Goose roundup season requires careful planning; here’s what to know for this coming season. 

Canada Geese often create health and safety concerns for property owners and managers. From aggression to unsanitary and unsightly droppings, the presence of these large birds around your building can mean trouble.

A goose roundup is a very effective method of removing geese from your property. This simply requires a good game plan that RAC can help you build. Here’s what you need to know.

Don’t Miss the Window of Opportunity for Goose Roundups

Rounding up geese can only occur during their flightless period (approximately June 3 through July 10). During this time, geese molt which simply means they shed and regrow their flight feathers.

During a goose roundup, the birds are corralled, loaded onto a trailer, and safely relocated to an approved fish and wildlife area or taken to a euthanasia site. This decision is made on an individual basis by the property owner or manager.

Prior to relocation or euthanasia, the birds are inspected for metal bands used for research purposes to identify the gender, age, and migration patterns of individual birds. Information on banded geese is sent to Indiana’s Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) to better understand the species’ habits, as well as population growth and migration.

How to Schedule a Goose Roundup

While the window of opportunity is short, the good news is that scheduling a goose roundup is easy.

At Rusty’s Animal Control (RAC), we help you through the application paperwork that is necessary to acquire a permit for the removal of geese. These permits are managed through the Indiana Department of Natural Resources. To be eligible for a permit, geese-caused damage or expenses of at least $500 must be documented in the permit request. The costs can include clean-up and costs associated with eliminating potential legal risks. There is no charge for the permit.

Once the permit application is approved, we work with you to determine the best date for geese removal based on your schedule and molting season for the birds. All clients can choose between relocation and euthanasia of the birds. Watch below for a video of a goose roundup and relocation:

Get Professional Help with Aggressive, Nesting Geese

Nesting Canada geese are fearless in defending their homesteads, even when their homesteads are adjacent to well-traveled public entryways. They will aggressively pursue anyone who gets too close.

There are well-documented incidents of falls and injuries that occur when unwary pedestrians find themselves racing to escape the wing-flapping onslaught of a goose in attack mode.

No less disturbing – as well as an additional source of falls – are the prodigious and unhealthy splats of waste they deposit in startlingly large amounts. These droppings can threaten health as they enter the water supply. And this year, some Canada Geese have tested positive for the highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) which can infect humans as well as domestic birds like chicken and turkeys.

Meanwhile, an array of federal, state and sometimes local regulations protect these birds and restrict the measures that can be used to discourage them from taking up residence on your turf.

That can leave you vulnerable to health, safety and property damage risks as well as the risk of claims and lawsuits filed by people who suffer injury on your property.

They’ll Be Back: Nesting Geese Return Year after Year

And geese are everywhere in the Midwest, with the ability to spread disease and ruin crops as well as the shoes of unwary pedestrians. Attracted to parks, golf courses, farms, residential neighborhoods and industrial parks, these oversized birds find human-occupied areas an attractive haven from predators and hunters. As a bonus, there are many people who feed them.

Once they’re settled in, or have eggs in the nest, the laws governing their management get stricter.  Even after they’ve moved on, they’re likely to return to the same spot next season – and the season after that. Geese have a life expectancy of 10 to 25 years, with some living as long as 30 years. Resident geese begin nesting at a younger age and produce larger clutches than migratory geese.

The good news is that these pushy birds are well known to Midwest area animal control experts, and there are humane, effective and legally approved strategies for getting them to move on – and stay away.

Under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918, a permit is required to manage nuisance geese. It also helps to have professional experience in dealing with these strong and aggressive birds.

Mating Season For Raccoons Is Upon Us

January marked the beginning of mating season for raccoons and now through April, after completing their 63 day gestation period, they will be giving birth. On average, a raccoon litter will have three to six “kits”. It is very common for raccoons to give birth in homes whether it be the attic, crawlspace, or even in between your walls as they look for a safe place for their young.

Seemingly minor offenses like having an unsecured trash can or leaving out pet food and bird feeders can result in your property becoming the perfect place for raccoons to raise a litter.

Signs Of A Raccoon Problem On Your Property

Damage to your home can signal a raccoon problem. Raccoons can be exceptionally destructive creatures when trying to enter your home, only needing a 4-inch hole to enter a space. They will often pull apart vents, soffits, chimney caps or even parts of your roof to find a safe place for their young to be born. Once a raccoon is in your home, it can damage insulation, wiring and contaminate the space it chooses to occupy with urine and feces.

While strewn trash in the yard, toppled garbage cans or feces on your roof can be a sign of raccoons, your own animals may often try to inform you as well. Your pets may act strange when there is a raccoon in your home by constantly looking at the wall or ceiling as they may hear them before you do.

Health Risks Of Nesting Raccoons

Raccoon feces could potentially expose you to microscopic raccoon roundworm eggs. Raccoon roundworm is a parasitic worm that can cause blindness, brain damage and even death. Due to these health risks, it is important to hire a professional service like Rusty’s Animal Control for the removal of the raccoons, cleanup and repairs.

Did You Know Your Raccoon Damage Could Potentially Be Covered By Insurance?

When raccoons cause damage to your home, it is important to have your property inspected. After an inspection and determining the damage has been done by raccoons, we typically recommend reaching out to your homeowner’s insurance to see if your policy covers the roof, attic, and other damaged areas of your home. However, insurance companies often do not cover the damage done to your personal property within the home.

How Not to Become an Accidental Landlord to Families of Squirrels

It’s mating season for squirrels and unfortunately, it’s easy to unintentionally invite them to make your home or property theirs.

Bird feeders, garden waste, water, and other food sources all serve as a welcome mat for squirrels looking for an easy meal and a place to nest in the winter months.

These aggressive, bushy-tailed rodents will go to great lengths for a source of food and a cozy place to nest, even if they have to chew their way in.

In addition to building damage, squirrels can also be fearsome in defense of their nest or food and squirrel bites are not uncommon.

In one reported incident, a squirrel attacked and injured 18 people after finding a bounty of food at a property that was home to a bird feeder, fresh produce, and worse: a friendly resident who was providing hand-fed nuts.

In January, a New Hampshire House committee approved a plan to call for year-round open hunting season on gray squirrels after hearing of the costly and damaging effects caused by squirrels at local homes and farms. One representative who owns a maple syrup business, reported that the pests had cost his business as much as $20,000 a year in damage caused by chewing into buildings and other equipment.

Squirrel Mating Season Requires Vigilance

Squirrels carry their babies for about six weeks. In the Midwest, they typically give birth two times a year, between February and March and between May and June.

In the process of searching for a safe place to nest, they may be scouting your property for a prime spot like your attic, typically entering through a small hole or a vent along the roof line and using insulation and other materials found to line their nests.

Squirrel Nesting

Empty bird feeders are often a sign of squirrels nearby. While there are devices that can be used to deter them, squirrels are persistent and frequently find a way around any obstacles standing between them and a tempting source of food.

Experts Help For Squirrel Problems

If you suspect that squirrels or other forms of wildlife have taken up residence at your home, office or commercial space, don’t wait – contact the experts at Rusty’s Animal Control (RAC). We can help with exclusion trapping, clean-up and prevention.

Managing the Threat of Bats, Rats & Mice in Winter

For those of us in the business of managing conflicts between humans and assorted wildlife, winter is the season of tiny occupations.

When the temperatures fall, rats, bats – and more commonly mice – will take advantage of human hospitality, migrating into office buildings, warehouses, retail sites and homes looking for food, water and a place to get out of the cold. It takes very little for your building to end up on their shortlist of winter get-away or hibernation sites.

Offices, warehouses and even manufacturing facilities are all targets for these little pests. Workplaces are full of food, from desk drawer snacks to garbage cans to lunchroom leftovers. Rats and mice are incredibly creative at getting in. And while you may think your facility is locked up tight, a space of as little as ¼ inch is as good as a key under the mat to a family of mice.

Uninvited Rodent Guests Bring Plenty of Baggage

Mice are the most common rodent complaint at this time of year, says RAC owner Rusty Fields. “Homeowners with million-dollar luxury homes, offices, stores, warehouses and storage units — everyone has mice,” he says. “Cold weather brings them in.”

How do you know when mice have moved in? While mice are excellent at hiding, they’re not quiet, and they’re not tidy. Don’t ignore reports of scratching or squeaking sounds in the walls, signs of chewing around baseboards or food cabinets, the smell of urine or any signs of the rice-sized waste pellets they leave behind.

Mice multiply quickly and leave behind more than a mess.

Many diseases are transmitted by mice and other rodents, including hantavirus, salmonella, and lymphocytic choriomeningitis (LCMV). Rodent urine and droppings that dry up and combine with dust and other airborne particles transmit dangerous viruses through inhalation. Rats spread leptospirosis and tularemia. Bats seeking warm, dark spaces to hibernate in during the cold months also spread viruses.

Your health is not the only thing at risk, however. Mice and rats damage walls, insulation, electronic cables and wiring with their constant chewing, leaving a building at risk of shorts and even fires.

Whatever type of rodent is rattling around inside your home, office, warehouse or residential building, quick action is needed to protect the health of your family, tenants, workers and customers. Don’t make the mistake of letting a “small” pest become a big problem.

The Truth about Feeding Birds & Other Wildlife on Your Property

From backyard birdfeeders to stray cats and curious squirrels, people often can’t resist the urge to feed the wildlife they encounter in backyards, parks and even workplaces.

Unfortunately, many fail to realize that when they set out the buffet for their favorites, they’re is-suing an open invitation to others, whose company can be far less charming.

Many problematic – and destructive – species are opportunistic feeders more than happy to make a meal of wild birdfeed or other snacks.

As more than a few backyard birdwatchers and gardeners have experienced firsthand, squirrels will empty birdfeeders, and rabbits, deer and more squirrels have a habit of making off with your hard-earned produce. But it gets worse: rats and mice also love bird seed along with the animals that prey on them. Want snakes under your bird feeder?

Prevent Winter Wildlife Conflicts

Those are just the best-known of the uninvited diners, and relatively minor consequences. A wide variety of stealthier and less welcome critters are attracted to birdseed, cat and dog food and just about any other available food source, including skunks, possum, raccoons, bears, mice, rats, and voles, especially as winter approaches.

As temperatures fall, your reputation for hospitality can start to get around, and some of these animals may decide that your property looks like a good place to stay over.

With more than two decades of experience as a licensed and certified wildlife control expert, it’s a message RAC owner Rusty Fields has had to deliver many times to homeowners, property managers and office workers – animal conflicts are not limited to raccoons in the attic.

“When you’re feeding wild animals, you’re creating problems and safety issues for yourself, your families and neighbors, your co-workers and employees,” Fields says. “Birds may be nice, but your bird feeder can also attract rodents and other pests.”

Best Practice for Feeding the Wildlife Include: Don’t

If you are landlord, building owner or proper manager, education is a key, if often overlooked, component of your wildlife control strategies. You might be surprised at some of the places that wildlife feeding takes place.

Not long ago, RAC was called out to an office building where employees had been hand-feeding a squirrel. A building tenant called RAC after an employee was bitten. RAC was able to trap the squirrel which, luckily, wasn’t rabid.

Your tenants may find them adorable, but squirrels do not make good office mates and have been known to get very aggressive.

While other rodents, like mice and rats, are less likely to be getting a deliberate handout, they have an excellent sense of where to find the unintentional kind.

Education & Experienced Help for Wildlife Removal

Education can begin with posting flyers in office and apartment building common areas. Best practices also include paying attention to the location and type of bird feeders on your property.

While you can install various devices on bird feeders to deter squirrels, even the best practices won’t entirely solve the pest problem, says Fields. As Montana wildlife control expert Stephen Vantassel wrote on his blog: “Bird feeders that feed animals other than birds are one of the surest ways to ensure that hiring a wildlife control operator is in your future.”

Animals are creative and, when they’re hungry, they’ll do whatever they can to get food.

Properties with outdoor amenities for tenants should also take care to prevent inadvertently inviting problems. Pools, fountains and garbage cans can all attract hungry and thirsty wildlife that can pose a danger to residents or employees.

RAC was called to an office building where it was believed a raccoon was getting into the garbage. It turned out there were seven raccoons, all trapped and removed from the premises by RAC.

The Decoy Effect: Why Geese Flocks Grow During Migration Season

Geese are highly social birds, especially during migration. They depend on each other to keep an eye out for predators and to let each other know when danger has been spotted. This behavior is something that hunters have been exploiting for centuries by placing decoys in the hunting zone to draw migrating geese. Geese flying overhead see the decoys and register the area as safe to occupy.

While it may provide hunters with an advantage, this effect can be a challenge for goose management teams and the properties they serve. Even if your property only has a few geese on site, the sight of them safely enjoying your hospitality will draw in migrating flocks overhead. Geese have excellent eyesight. Even at high altitudes they can spot the areas their fellow travelers have chosen to occupy and in as little as a couple of hours, a small gathering can turn into a party of hundreds.

How to Counteract the Decoy Effect During Migration Season

It’s an intimidating prospect for property owners. But our team of experts know how to make the Decoy Effect work as well for bird management as it does for hunters. Just as geese can see a safe place where their buddies are congregating, they are also quick to notice a site other geese are avoiding. A goose-free property significantly reduces your chance of being bombarded by migrating flocks because geese will steer clear – recognizing that it may be uninhabited for a good reason. That’s why our team works hard to ensure that our deterrent efforts leave no goose behind to attract the thousands migrating overhead.

Starting your goose deterrent service before migration begins allows us to make sure that resident geese will stay away and won’t be there to entice the enormous flocks looking for a stopover on their way south.

Of course, even an empty property can draw migrating geese if it contains the right combination of food, shade, open water and other goose amenities. It is important to stay vigilant throughout migration season to make sure that flocks keep moving on.

Bird Adaptation to Urban Life: An Unwelcomed Stay

Did you know that dinosaurs never went extinct? That’s right, we still have dinosaurs today! The first bird, archaeopteryx, evolved over 150 million years ago from dinosaurs closely related to the infamous velociraptor. Raptors looked very different than they do in the movies. They were much smaller, fully feathered and looked a lot more like birds than reptiles.

Birds are incredibly adaptive. They are the only known descendants of dinosaurs to have survived. They have colonized all continents, traverse the ocean, and thrive in the most extreme of environments. It’s no wonder that some bird species have adapted so well to the urban environments that humans have created.

Human structures create a wide variety of nesting opportunities for many bird species. Cavity and ledge nesters like pigeons, mourning doves, house finches, robins, starlings, and house sparrows find all sorts of nooks and crannies to raise families in. Swallows find our overhangs, loading docks, and bridges irresistible nesting areas. Colony nesters such as ring-billed and herring gulls, and even Canada geese, see our flat commercial and industrial roofs as great spots to nest safely away from ground predators. Green roofs are excellent habitat for many birds and one roof in New York City was found to have 11 different species of birds utilizing the space. Turkey vultures, though they don’t usually nest on buildings, use them to rest and scan for roadkill to feast on. Killdeer build well-camouflaged nests on  gravel pathways. Even the peregrine falcon, the fastest animal on the planet, has made city buildings part of its nesting habitat. Sometimes these nests are welcome and building inhabitants enjoy watching the birds raise their offspring. Often, however, nesting birds are a source of health and safety concerns for building residents.

These gulls and terns have colonized this green roof at Chicago’s Navy Pier.

After bathing in a nearby parking lot puddle, this house sparrow makes himself comfortable on the tire of this truck.

Water Retention Areas: If you Build Them, Birds Will Come

With buildings and parking lots comes retention areas to collect rainwater and prevent flooding. These ponds and ditches create habitat for many waterbirds and a few species have thrived in these man-made urban environments. Canada geese, which were nearly extinct by the 1960s, have rebounded so profusely they are now considered a nuisance almost everywhere they are found. Mallard ducks, while not a nuisance, can be seen colonizing almost every puddle, pond, and drainage area. Red-winged blackbirds find the cattails, invasive phragmites grass, and other shoreline vegetation to their liking and have become one of the most common urban and suburban birds. Even wild turkeys, once a rare sight, now strut their stuff on urban streets, in back yards, and even in mall parking lots.

Even the smallest urban puddle is welcome to mallard ducks

Canada Geese have made themselves very comfortable in our urban areas!

Humans have created new food sources for birds too. Bird feeders are popular, even in the city and innovations have allowed even people on upper floors to put bird feeders on their windows. Our food also becomes their food, with litter and food waste a key component in many urban bird diets, especially gulls, starlings, and pigeons. Hand-feeding birds like ducks, geese, and pigeons is also a common pastime for many people, though this is often harmful to birds and the environment and should be discouraged.

Hand-feeding draws in pigeons, geese, ducks, and other birds. It is usually not good for the birds or the environment.

While many migratory bird species are suffering and in decline due to human actions, other birds are thriving and adapting to the new world we are creating around them.

If you are experiencing nuisance issues with these intelligent and adaptive animals, RAC can help. With experts on staff and decades of experience managing nuisance bird species, we can help you solve your bird conflicts with the humane and conscientious treatment these modern dinosaurs deserve.

How to Manage the Mess of Gosling & Molt Season

June is a busy month for geese. With nesting nearly finished, the birds will search for their summer homes and a safe environment for molting, as well as raising their young.

All geese molt their flight feathers in the summer. This allows them to have a full, brand-new set for migration. While they are molting, geese are grounded and cannot fly.

Our teams work hard to encourage the geese to move offsite before this happens – and to keep them away while molting so the rest of the summer is goose-free. Given their inability to fly during this time, once the geese have left the property, they are unlikely to return until their new flight feathers grow back in late July.

Goose Feathers
Molted Canada goose flight feathers

Throughout the year, our teams adapt our management of geese to their behavioral patterns, including gosling season. Different geese will respond in unique ways to the approach of gosling and molting season, posing a challenge to even the most tenured wildlife management professionals.

Here’s what to expect during molting and gosling season – and what to do about it.

Geese Families

Adult geese with goslings will protect, raise, and lead their young to good feeding grounds and out of danger. Just like human kids, goslings can have minds of their own, and don’t always follow what mom and dad want.

It can be challenging raising kids, especially in an urban environment with traffic, predators, and humans to contend with. Because goslings can’t fly, parent geese will stick to the ground with their babies, sometimes walking them into dangerous situations. It also means that geese will sometimes nest on or around our clients’ properties given there is less competition for food and space with other geese.

Geese parents will look for areas with lots of food, mown turf, and bodies of water with easy entry access for their goslings to quickly retreat to if a threat appears. When a family shows up, our teams will gently escort them offsite to a different body of water.

Sometimes it takes a few moves for the families to understand that they aren’t welcome. The safety of the birds is our top priority and we may need to wait a few days for a safer time to move them.

Large Group of Geese

Pre-Molt Groups

Adult geese that failed in nesting, geese that are unpaired, or geese too young to breed (last year’s goslings) will flock up in what we call “pre-molt groups.” With no goslings, territory, or nests to defend, the old rule of safety in numbers applies once again. These groups will be looking for good feeding grounds as they make their way further north, or properties with ample food and large bodies of water, especially rivers, to spend the summer flightless period.

Properties that were empty all spring may suddenly become inundated with large groups of geese that leave behind a big mess! These groups can be stubborn to move, especially if they are thinking of spending the summer hanging out at that site. Heavy harassment with dogs, boats, and lasers is key to encouraging these groups to find a more natural and ‘out of the way place’ to spend the summer.

Pre-molt Geese

Pre-molt groups can create a big mess in a short time

River Highways

Once the molting season is in full swing- usually by the third week of June -things quiet down for most properties.

By then, we have relocated families and pre-molt groups, and the geese have learned that being isolated on this property without flight is not a safe option. This is the time we start focusing more heavily on our river clients. Rivers act like highways for flightless geese, allowing them to easily move from feeding ground to feeding ground while having a safe escape from predators.

Let RAC Help

Now is the time to do something so that you will have a clean, safe, and enjoyable property for the rest of summer. Waiting until the geese have molted will severely limit your options for summer management. Contact us today for a free estimate and move those geese out before it’s too late.

Protecting People and Property Against Aggression by Nesting Geese

Geese are well known for their volatile temperaments. Some breeds of domestic geese are even kept as “guard dogs,” helping to protect livestock and property from both human and animal intruders. Wild geese are no different, and when nesting season hits, their legendary willingness to brawl creates significant issues for the humans and pets that share their territory.

The Canada geese that reside and nest in our area are often incredibly defensive of their nesting territory. They will attack – and occasionally kill – not only other geese, but also other waterfowl such as ducks, gulls, and terns. But they don’t stop there! Nesting geese, protecting as little as a single egg, have been known to attack people, dogs, cars, and even a silverback gorilla who came too close to a nest inside a zoo enclosure.

Attacks against people and pets can cause significant injuries. An average adult giant Canada goose weighs 12.5 pounds and can accelerate to 60 mph when threatened – striking with enough force to knock an adult human to the ground. Goose attacks have been known to cause broken bones, lacerations that required stitches and staples, head trauma, vehicle accidents, emotional trauma and more.

After experiencing goose attacks, this property owner had to tape off a section of the property to keep visitors safe.

Careful Management of Nesting Geese Required by Federal Law

Having a pair of aggressive geese nesting on your property can lead to injuries, damage, and lawsuits. When geese nest on rooftops, the danger increases dramatically for maintenance workers and others entering and exiting the building. Canada geese are federally protected and even when behaving aggressively, need to be managed carefully within those protections.

When geese nest on rooftops, their aggressive behavior in defense of their eggs or young can be dangerous for those nearby.

While aggressive geese can be a problem, it’s worth remembering that this behavior is part of what makes geese incredible parents that will often protect their eggs and young at the risk of their own lives. RAC has years of experience managing aggressive nesting geese safely, legally and with the care and respect they deserve. Contact us today for more information on our goose control services.
