    It’s goose time! Does anyone have a method (that works) to keep geese from nesting on their condo building? I recognize that they are a protected species and one cannot harm them and after the eggs are laid, it’s too late. It’s a sad thing, but the goslings can’t properly fly when they hatch and some fall to their death onto my patio.

    EXCELLENT question, Cameron.

    Can we expand the conversation to include PIGEONS which my condo does not manage effectively?

    We read a hint to use WD40 on various locations where the birds might go.

    I purchased this, but I am still experimenting and not looking good.

    It supposedly will flash when animals or birds come close by, and there is a sound generator that birds can hear, but humans cannot.

    We haven’t had a goose problem. Many birds perch on our parapets above the mansards, mainly pigeons, also magpies and crows. They poop on the mansards and parapets; the rain washes the excrement onto our skylights and windows. The windows are cleaned once a year. The pigeons used to roost and nest on our roofs. Persistent, polite owner complaints to management resulted in a pest control company ‘relocating the pigeons to the countryside’. Our maintenance man made sure the nesting places were no longer accessible. New generations of pigeons need to be ‘educated’ continuously.
