Geese, Gooses and the Poop they bring

Postby johnshaw » Tue Feb 14, 2012 1:25 pm

In Kansas City we are building a new Temple and have just finished a Stake Center. These are very exciting times for us, but we have an issue. It involves lots and lots of poop. We appear to be on the flight path of a large Goose (Geese) migration. The area has been beautified, with some nice ponds, etc... but the Geese are now populating and creating a very big mess in our parking lots and sidewalks.

Has anyone out there dealt with this, and have suggestions to help? FM has basically said, you're on your on your own, and we are doing some investigation, but wanted to see if there were others out there with similar issues.

The only thing I'm aware of is a set of spikes that can be placed on horizontal surfaces, but that's aimed more at the local pigeon population to keep them off the ledges. A quick search for "Bird Spikes" will show you what I'm taking about. Many of those are sold by companies that specialize in bird control. I found this page could be of interest.

The stake center I used growing up in Alaska was next to a lake. They spent most of the summer on the roof. I don't think there is much of anything you can do, short of grabbing a shotgun.
