Canada Geese are treated differently than any other migratory bird. The US Fish & Wildlife & the USDA has passed the process directly on to the Department of Natural Resources. Once you obtain a permit (steps outlined below) then we can come out and safely catch and remove the Geese. When they are molting we can corral them into cages or hand catch the geese. We can also implement or make recommendations to deter future nesting. Our fees take into consideration the complexity of the situation, the landscape, the method used to catch the geese, and the number of staff members required. Our Goose removal and hazing service area in North Georgia extends as far south as Alpharetta, Crabapple, Duluth, Johns Creek, Marietta, Milton, Roswell, and Suwanee then going as far north as Ball Ground, Blue Ridge, Cumming, Dahlonega, Dawsonville, Ellijay, Gainesville, and Jasper. If you are outside of these areas just give us a call! We want to help however possible.
There are two steps to getting the geese removed from your property.
1) Getting a permit as listed below
2) Hire us for either goose hazing measures or goose removal.
We believe in humane goose removal, relocation and/or hazing. Call us for a free consultation.

STEP #2 : GOOSE HAZING
Goose Hazing is basically scaring or annoying the geese too the point that they go somewhere else. We offer quite a few options when it comes to Goose Hazing. Some are visual, some auditory and some both. What makes hazing successful is designing the RIGHT hazing method regardless of electronics, dogs, scare tactics, and combining it to form a viable solution. This takes experience and knowledge of geese. Our technicians will determine what is the best option based upon your property, surroundings and the amount of geese.
There is hope!
