Growing populations of non-migrating Canada geese can destroy turf and create an unsightly and unhealthy environment from their droppings. RAS uses two types of goose deterrents that when used together create an integrated approach to encourage geese to move to other feeding sites.

The products are FlightControl® PLUS and Away With Geese

FlightControl® PLUS

FlightControl® PLUS will deter geese by removal of their food source. Geese feed on FlightControl® PLUS treated turfgrass and experience a temporary yet effective digestive irritation minutes to hours after feeding. The geese will not hesitate to eat treated turf if they have not encountered treated turf before. However, after eating treated turf, the learned memory association to treated turf and a post-ingestional irritation occurs. After one or several encounters with FlightControl® PLUS treated turfgrass, geese associate the UV absorbing material on grass leaves with the digestive irritation. Research has proven that after several encounters with FlightControl® PLUS, birds, including Canada geese, will not eat a treated food source and will seek out non-treated food.(FlightControl®)

Away With Geese

Away With Geese features an amber 360° solar-powered light that flashes every two seconds, all night, year-round. The light is scarcely noticeable to humans but is very disruptive to the sleep of the geese, causing them to no longer feel secure. After just a few anxious nights, they find another habitat. There is an Away With Geese unit for every type of landscape.  The units can be installed in public areas such as athletic fields, industrial areas, and parks, residential areas, apartments, complexes, homes, and even on ponds and lakes.  The unit can also be installed on docks. Each unit covers a 100-yard radius.
