Our Kids Are Happy That We Got Help

When we moved into an renovated farmhouse, we were pleased that the wildlife around us was so relaxing when we came to view the house. But the real estate agent did not tell us that wild animals can be a problem sometimes, too. We found that out after moving in and needed Canada geese control in NJ for the sake of our kids. We wish that would not have needed to move the geese, but it was very necessary to do so.

We loved the sounds the geese make as they fly over head and landed on the outskirts of our yard. But after we moved in, they were very curious about our children. Both the kids and the geese seemed to coexist rather peacefully for about a few weeks or so. Not long after that, the geese seemed to not like that our children were on their “turf,” and they began chasing our kids. It was kind of funny at first, but it got to the point where the kids could not play outside at all without the geese coming after them. Soon, our kids were petrified of going outside.

We decided to take a break from the geese by telling our kids they needed to stay inside for a couple of weeks. Our hope was that after that time period, they would forget about how annoyed they were by us being on what they see as their property. After two weeks, they went back outside to try to play again, and everything was okay for a couple of days. But then the same issue cropped up again. One of my kids was petrified and chased across the yard until she fell down and broke her ankle. We knew it was hopeless, so we had a company that specializes in removing them to come help us.
