The system is a new and innovative way to rid your property of nuisance geese without the use of harsh chemicals, dogs, reflectors, noise making devices or other concoctions. AwayWithGeese is self-contained, automatic and guaranteed to get rid of geese or your money back.

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.

All models feature:

  1. Solar powered – no changing batteries or running electricity to the site
  2. Maintenance free
  3. Environmentally Safe and Effective Goose Control
  4. Barely noticeable the human eye
  5. Solves Geese Problems quickly
  6. Covers 3.5 Acres
  7. Light emits in all directions at once

Water-based Unit

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.

  1. The product floats in the water and works at night, 7 days a week
  2. Effective goose deterrent works by altering sleep patterns causing them to move to another pond.

Land-based Unit

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.

  1. Eliminates night and early AM congregating by disturbing the geese just enough to encourage them to move to another location
  2. Stakes securely into the ground and may be placed anywhere in your lawn

Sports Unit

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.

  1. Stakes securely into the ground
  2. 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.

  1. Securely attaches to a pedestal such as a concrete block
  2. 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 had nearly 200 geese destroying our property. AwayWithGeese eliminated the problem.”

“Your device has actually increased the quality of life on our lake. We can now enjoy our shoreline for the first time. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

“It is absolutely amazing!

We do not have any geese on one lake anymore and just a few stragglers on our other lake because someone keeps feeding them… but what a difference…”

“I purchased a land-based unit in August 2007 and was extremely impressed with its effectiveness in ridding our lake property of geese. In fact, my skeptical neighbors eventually credited the unit with ridding our entire shoreline of the perennial nuisances!”

“I would like to commend you on the awaywithgeese product — it is simply amazing! We now have our yard back! What amazed us the most is how quickly we saw a difference. We’ve had the unit in the ground for less than a week. What a wonderful product this is!

Thanks again for creating something this easy that really works!”

“We have a three acre pond that was covered with geese every fall, at dusk. They made a racket and a mess. We decided to give the “Away with Geese” light a try. Why not? It has a 90 day money back guarantee. We put the light in the center of the pond and within 3 nights, the geese were gone. We are very happy with the light. It is safe and environmentally friendly. Best of all, it really does work!”

“I ordered my first Away with Geese last year. I was truly amazed how a newly dug 1 acre pond on my farm was transformed into an apparent goose farm seemingly overnight. I was desperate. Within 2 weeks of placing your unit in the center of my pond, the geese were gone…….and haven’t yet come back. Revenge is sweet. It worked so well that I am ordering another one for a 2nd pond at my home in NYC . Your new design is great and your product works fantastic. Now all I need to do is convince my local golf course to get a few of these so I can come home with clean shoes.”
