Geese 
As Spring and Summer approach, the Geese population will again increase. Here are some things you can do to limit their impact on your property:

  • DON’T FEED THE GEESE! – Geese return to where the living is easy and free food is a big part of this.
  • Geese are a protected species so injuring, them is not an option.  Loud unexpected noises (Pot & Pan banging, Car Horns, Dog Barks) can deter them, but please respect you neighbors with your noise making time frame.
  • Geese don’t like Grape Juice – Grape juice contains methyl anthranilate which is unpalatable to Geese, spraying the perimeter of you property regularly with a diluted grape juice will help to keep them away.
  • The HOA is not responsible for Geese in or around your yards, homes, or ponds.  Just as we aren’t/can’t be responsible for rabbits, moles, birds, coyotes, and such.  Each homeowner is responsible for their property.
