My House is Nice and Quiet Once Again

As a little girl, I loved going to my grandmother’s house during my school holidays. I looked forward to staying with her for long talks, baked cookies and quiet days listening to her stories. I was brokenhearted when she passed away. She left me her house because she knew how happy I was when I stayed there. But very soon after I moved in, I desperately needed Canada geese control in NJ to cut down on the number of geese on my new property.

When I was young, my grandmother loved to point out when the geese were coming back to the city after being away during the winter months. They always flew south, and she would point out when she could hear them flying into the city over the days and weeks. She always treated them respect, and she even threw out piece of stale bread for them to eat. There were not that many in the area back then, so it was not really a problem and did not cause even more of them to come around. I used to love to go outside and help her to feed the geese.

Over time, their breeding got out of control, and there are so many around the place now. It is no fun to be woken up early in the morning by their loud noises. And sometimes they fight with one another, and that is very jarring to me. They leave droppings in my pool, on my deck and on my car. There are just too many of them now. This was upsetting to me because I really enjoyed having them in years past.

After talking to an employee at the company who said that they could remove them, they said that I could try just moving around 75 percent of them only. They expected that it would be years before many more moved in. So, that’s what I did, and all is well now.
