 Goose Buster 

 

 

WHY REPEL GEESE?

They number in the MILLIONS (increasing at 30% a year) and leave:

bullet

UNSIGHTLY MESS (at least a pound of droppings per day per goose!)

bullet

CONTAMINATION from increased fecal coliform levels in ponds

bullet

Ravaged grass and property

bullet

MONEY WASTED cleaning, reseeding, resodding and repairing

PESTS IT REPELS.
bullet Canada geese
bullet mallards
bullet all other ducks and geese.
Also can be used against coots, gulls, heron, egrets, and cormorants.

 
WHAT'S SO SPECIAL ABOUT GooseBuster?

Actual alert and alarm calls recorded in the wild. GooseBuster is the first and only repeller to use actual alert and alarm calls of Canada geese, recorded under natural conditions. Geese recognize these calls and respond instinctively( to 'alert' calls indicating uneasiness about potential danger and 'alarm' calls signifying immediate danger). Reacting to either, they evacuate instantly, without waiting to identify the source.

Different calls in random combinations. GooseBuster broadcasts its calls in random combinations. Calls differ in frequency, duration and intervals. Sound combinations, sequences and speaker selection change randomly, leading geese to perceive many birds many locations.

23 years of research. GooseBuster is the tangible result of 23 years of research conducted by Dr. Philip Whitford, Professor of Biology at Capital University. Since 1979, Dr. Whitford has been studying Canada goose behavior and vocal communications, then presenting and publishing his findings. He holds his PhD in biological sciences in the field of animal behavior, and BS and MS degrees in wildlife management. On request, Dr. Whitford is available for consultation; please inquire.

 

 



INCREMENTAL HELP FROM NATURE.

New arrivals leave abruptly in a panic, encouraging original residents to leave as well.

GooseBuster causes other birds to exhibit their alarm calls, giving geese a greater sense of danger

SUCCESS IS IN THE DETAILS.
TIMER - program sounds to coincide with arrival of geese
PROGRAMMABLE - choose interval between calls

SPEAKER SEQUENCING - imitates natural patterns of
     1) a moving goose, looking around at disturbances; and
     2) several agitated geese

RANDOM PLAY - sounds are always changing, preventing acclimation.

LONG TERM SOLUTION. Geese are stubborn and territorial, and return to the same place year after year. But GooseBuster uses this memory against them - once scared away repeatedly, they rarely return.

COVERAGE.
One unit: 5-7 acres.
EXTRA COVERAGE: Two units: 15-21 acres. Field tests show that a second unit increases coverage dramatically. This additive effect more than doubles the coverage (in fact it increases up to three times) reducing the per-acre cost significantly.
