Serving Mercer, Ocean, Monmouth, Somerset, & Middlesex County
We installed a stainless steel grid wire around and over the retention pond. This is a physical bird deterrent that won't harm the geese, but interfere with their flight pattern and makes it uncomfortable for them to roost.
We also attached a solar-powered bird-deterrent strobe light to the poles. The geese think that this light is actually a predator stalking them, which will make them avoid the area.
We then rowed out to install the overhead wire, which will stretch across the entire retention pond.
We made sure to repeat this process to every single retention pond throughout the community, in order to guarantee that geese won't roost in these areas.
Here's how we're going to prevent these geese from defecating all over this community's retention pond.
