What kind of damage can Canada Geese cause?
The depredation of crops by Canada Geese is one of the most devastating and difficult-to-control damages caused by the animals. Geese can co-exist on Golf courses, and parks and they are able to migrate to agricultural lands, including over-grazed pastures, causing serious damages to crops and vegetation. Canada geese are mostly known to attack crops such as Corns, maize, millets, and some vegetables. These geese are known to trample on the soil and make it more compact and this create a harden surface or pan that makes it difficult for new vegetation to grow and thrive.
During their molting periods, Canada geese can cause serious damages to residential properties, including lawns, and ornamental plants that can be very expensive to repair or manage. They forage in large groups, especially when they find a place of temporary shelter. Canada geese can cause a decrease in air flow on water bodies , and this can result in the growth of algae.
Bacterial infections can be a serious health issue for humans. A typical adult Canada geese can produce up to 1.5 tons of feces a day and these can contaminate stored water in homes, or it may lead to serious contamination of surface ponds, or reservoirs where geese flock around. When an human being consume water contaminated by geese, he or she may suffer from diarrhea, fever, constipation and vomiting. Fresh droppings of Canada geese can be slippery and may make humans trip and fall when they step on such droppings. In Canada and the United States, more than 100,000 cases of new food poisonings are reported yearly, especially among individuals who consume organic fresh foods from farms close to geese colonies. Billions of dollars are also spent on treatments of individuals who suffer from geese-related bacterial infections.
