We have been trying new techniques to help reduce the population of geese on the golf course. A few of the best ways to help control the geese is to spook them with Benni and Morrison, our golf course dogs, we chase them with our golf carts, use laser pointers, cutouts of coyotes, and goose deterrent lights. None of these techniques work alone but a combination of them seem to help reduce the total number of geese.
I am excited about the prospect of the goose lights over the long run. The theory behind the light is that the blinking light will disturb the sleep pattern of the geese, thus causing them to look for another location to spend the night. While this is not an immediate fix, over the course of a few winters we should see our Canada goose population diminish.
