How do you keep geese from pooping on a concrete patio. Thanks for ans
Rowgop (Pam) on Apr 18, 2018How to Keep Geese off Your PatioHaving problems with geese or other water fowl on your patio? Here's a quick overview on how to control them.Steps1Make your patio less attractive to geese. The underlying problem in any situation where a bird or animal encroaches in an area it is not welcome is that the area is attractive to bird or animal. There are numerous humane and economic products that make an area unattractive to birds. They fall into several categories:2Remove anything attracting the geese that can be easily removed. If you have pet food for your dog or cat on your patio, remove it! Feed Fido or Kitty in the front yard not on the patio then the geese won't visit to steal an easy meal. Empty the kids paddling pool and put the pet water bowl out of sight unless your pet is using the patio so thirsty geese aren't tempted to drop in.3Use visual scare devices. These are things such as fake owls, coyotes, and other predatory organisms that are designed to scare the birds away. The problem with a lot of scare devices is that the birds get used to them too quickly.If you have a fake owl, try moving it every day or every other day.There are some visual scares like the Terror Eyes balloon and Irri-Tape that are designed to combat birds adaptive nature. They change constantly to make sure that the birds never get used to them. Search the internet for examples.Helpful Reply

Nancy Turner on Apr 18, 2018In my town, they are everywhere, even in the cities flag. One golf coarse by the river put up pieces of wood shaped like German shepherds to try and keep them off the fairways. They also invited the golfers that had dogs to bring them with them when the came to play a round. It seems to have helped because you don't see as many as you used to. If you don't have a dog, perhaps your friends, relatives or neighbors that do can share them by bringing them over for a while to visit. We don't have crows, or geese or even critters in the back yard with four dogs with a doggy door to charge through.Helpful Reply
