Golf Course Geese Problems?

Having a problem with Geese? Josie can take care of all your Geese problems and move them away from your golf course.
Canada Geese settle on golf courses, private ponds, and commercial retention ponds and remain only to create a nuisance. Each goose drops two to four pounds of excrement daily and creates tremendous noise.
Geese are also lazy. They tend to stay close to their secure areas during daylight hours in order to minimize the distance they travel each day.
Background on Geese
The scientific name for Canada Geese is Branta canadensis. The birds often migrate in the fall, but isolated populations may reside year round. Nesting begins in March and April, in the riparian zone near a waterbody.
One goose can consume up to four pounds of grass per day, producing about three pounds of fecal matter per day. This can contribute to excessive amounts of nutrient loading because their feces contain 76% carbon, 4.4% nitrogen, and 1.3% phosphorus. These nutrients can cause harmful algal blooms in lakes from runoff. To make matters worse Cryptosporidium parvum, a protozoan linked to the feces of animals has caused over 400,000 sicknesses and a recorded six deaths.
