As thankful as we all are to see warmer weather, spring and summer have their pitfalls as well. Besides the allergies and the reawakening of bugs, many people also struggle with more nuisance wildlife. A nuisance is defined as a person, thing, or circumstance causing inconvenience or annoyance. One of the biggest inconveniences in springtime is finding a family of critters has taken up roots in your territory. 

Today’s blog from Animal Remover talks about how to deal with Canada geese babies.

Where They Live

You’re probably familiar with Canada geese. Especially in the Midwest, they’re either flying overhead or flocking around any body of water they can find. Canada geese are known to inhabit unusual places, such as man-made parks, ponds, golf courses, and artificial ponds. This is why they’re no stranger to being around people. They eat mainly grass, and even prefer fertilized lawn grass. 

This is why they’re considered a common pest, because they tend to relocate to more populated areas rather than stay in less crowded or more natural areas.

Messes They Leave 

While geese are not especially dangerous beyond a hiss or a scare, they do tend to make a mess. They graze on grass, which can lead to an uneven or spare lawn. Furthermore, where they eat, they defecate. This is what typically bothers residents, as no one wants goose *expletive* scattered all over their lawn and driveway. Especially in areas where children may play or crawl, this is unsanitary and potentially dangerous. 

Goslings With Protective Parents

So how should you go about dealing with all of this? First and foremost, do not try to do anything about the goose infestation yourself. This can harm either the goslings, the adult geese, your lawn, your property, your children, or you. Don’t get close to the goslings, either. Mom and Dad will hiss at you and possibly bite you. Like any parents, they’ll get hostile if you try to get close to the babies.
