Repel Geese With Bad Taste
One technique is to give the geese a bad taste in their mouth.
Scarey Sounds – There are tapes available of the distress call of a goose in trouble. This can be set up to go off with a motion detector or just when you spot a gaggle of geese on your property.
Noisemaking devices include tape recordings of goose distress calls; firecrackers; and other pyrotechnic products that are fired from a shotgun or flare pistol. If your community does not prohibit setting off firecrackers, try throwing some in the middle of the flock. It takes a special effort to be outside when the geese are present on the lawn, but firecrackers produce results. You may need to set off a dozen or so at a time to get them to move. Several applications of this firepower may be enough to keep them away for the rest of this year. Don’t throw firecrackers into water, though. They will not go off when wet.
Repel the Geese With Touch & Motion
Water Spritzing Repeller For Canadian Geese
SCARECROW is a motion-activated water sprinkling device that repels pest animals such as Canadian Geese by startling them with an unexpected spritz of water. SCARECROW is highly effective, is environmentally friendly and very humane. It does not hurt the animal. The effect of the sudden noise, movement and spray of water is both startling and immediate – animals quickly flee the area and avoid returning in the future! It will not activate for song-birds.

Motion Tape Device
There are several versions of bird repelling tape on the market that when rigged properly will repel geese from the home landscape. Essentially you build a “maypole” device with 6 to 8 strips of bird repelling tape on top of a 4 to5 foot tall pole. Then you move the “maypole” around the yard day to day until the geese get aggravated and leave.
Repel With Models of Predators
Visual devices include balloons with big eyes printed on them or kites shaped like birds of prey that stay flying by themselves. Other visual devices include plastic alligators, plastic swans, and plastic bald eagles but these do not have a good record of success.
Repel the Geese With A Pet Dog
The absolute best way to keep geese away is by using a dog. A border collie who shows a dislike for geese will work best, but any dog that likes to chase geese will do the trick. After a few weeks of steady harassment, the geese will leave. Check with local authorities or local animal control officer before trying this in an urban area. In some areas, you can hire someone who has a dog specially trained for this work.
