Today I received this email from the management company responsible for our office park. It truly made my day:
It’s that time of year when the geese are choosing where they want to take up residence to start their families. To help motivate them to choose another property we will be using pyrotechnics and bird bangers which makes shot gun noises and blasts. These will be fired off in about 20 minutes. We also notify the police department because of the sound similar to a gun report.
We will also be setting out dog silhouettes around the property on a post and spring and they will be moved frequently. These have shown to be successful in deterring the geese to land.
