Flocks of geese crowding your yard can be a huge nuisance. They can be aggressive and leave droppings everywhere, ruining your lawn and your shoes. While geese are beautiful to look at, most people would be happier if they'd take their beauty somewhere else. Here are some ways to get rid of geese and reclaim your lawn.

Get Rid of Geese

Step 1

Clean up any food that might be attracting geese outdoors. Keep the lids on your trash cans, and don't feed any geese you see on your property.

Step 2

Put out swan decoys during migration season when geese are flying over and attempting to land at your house. Geese don't often mess with swans, so these decoys will scare them off.

Step 3

Set up a bird fence around any lakes or ponds that geese may try to land on. Geese use water as a way to escape enemies, so if water is not easy to access, they won't bother stopping by.

Step 4

Buy a dog or other animal to keep geese away. Keep in mind you'll have to take care of your new pet, so if you don't like animals, try a different method of driving geese away.

Step 5

Buy a chemical repellent to spray on your lawn. They will give your lawn an odor that smells horrible to geese and will keep them away.
