The average adult Canada goose produces 1-2 pounds of manure each day.
Yes they do. However, should something happen to one of the mated pair the remaining goose will find another mate.
Canada geese are typically aggressive during two times of the year. Early Spring during nesting time and late Spring while the goslings are still young.
Molting is when the adult geese shed and replace their primary wing feathers. This renders them flightless for approximately eight weeks. The beginning and end time for molt is staggered from flock to flock.
Non-lethal Canada goose management involves any technique that does not involve harming or killing the geese in any way. Examples of non-lethal techniques include; moving the geese with Border Collies, applying goose repellent, habitat modification, scare tactics and egg addling (oiling).
Egg addling or oiling involves utilizing one of a variety of techniques that disrupts the development of egg embryo.
The maximum lifespan of a Canada Goose is approximately 28 years.
