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 (Worsnop, 1994).

Environmentally Safe, Low Maintenance
The success of the product is based around a simple concept. At night, geese sleep in or near water areas where they feel secure from their predators (dogs, fox and coyotes). Placing an AwayWithGeese unit into the secure areas simulates the eye reflection of these predators and disrupts the geese’s ability to sleep. The geese no longer consider the area “safe” and will simply move to another suitable area within a few days.
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. AwayWithGeese is powerful enough to coax the geese into finding a different nighttime home far enough away to discourage daily commutes back to your lawn.
The unit automatically operates at night and produces an amber 360 degree beam of light directed at goose eye-level, then recharges itself during the day.
The light is unobtrusive to people. In fact, when seen at night, it provides a sense of satisfaction to human observers as it continues its vigil to encourage the geese to move on – along with their mess.
AwayWithGeese is available in land, water, sports field and rooftop configurations to help you get rid of geese depending on the type of habitat your property offers.

The Water Unit has been designed to rid ponds and lakes of unwanted geese. The unit floats in the water and is tethered to a weight or anchor that you supply. Geese normally return to the water at night to sleep because it is safe from predators. The unit’s flashing light alters the geese’s sleep patterns which causes them to move to another pond.
- The product floats in the water and works at night, 7 days a week
- Effective goose deterrent works by altering sleep patterns causing them to move to another pond.
The Land Unit is designed to rid lawns, fields and gardens of unwanted geese. The unit is staked into the ground and covers an area that is in line of sight up to 3.5 acres. Geese that congregate on lawns in the early morning or night will find a new place to rest in short order.
- Eliminates night and early AM congregating by disturbing the geese just enough to encourage them to move to another location
- Stakes securely into the ground and may be placed anywhere in your lawn
The Sports Unit has been designed for safe and effective use on sports fields, shorelines, parking areas, playgrounds, or any other land area where damaging goose encroachment needs to be controlled. The unit is configured to avert damage and theft while holding an unwavering vigil over your property. Installation is simple and quick. Results are unmatched.
- Stakes securely into the ground
- Specially designed to prevent theft
Dock/Roof Unit With Bracket
The Industrial Roof Unit has been designed for safe and effective use on large, flat roofs where geese tend to congregate seeking safety from predators . The mess created by geese damages air conditioning units and clog drainage systems, leading to expensive roof-top repairs.
- Securely attaches to a pedestal such as a concrete block
- Nothing intrusive to the roof such as screws or bolts
Geese will not forsake their goslings.
The AwayWithGeese unit works best when placed before you have eggs or baby geese present, or just after the goslings take flight (about 90 days after birth).
Positioning of the unit is important.
We will help you determine the optimum placement of your unit. Every pond and lake is different. We can help you eliminate blind spots and advise about certain areas such as those with steep banks, docks and trees.
We guarantee with the result from using our products or you can return it for a full refund. We do require that you try the product for at least 90 days and that you return it before 180 days after purchase. There are a couple of reasons for this trial period.
