We've been having a serious goose problem at our new office. They're back from Myrtle Beach or whatever, and they're leaving our lawn and parking lot a horrible mess. They're also extremely brazen about their honking, which is frightening some of our more demure product managers. Something had to be done.
My boss Fred and I got online and ordered these real-looking Coyote silhouettes. They are advertised as being a natural predator to the geese, and their presence will encourage the birds to go and fowl someone else's lawn.
Their effectiveness is questionable.
Ultimately, we realized that they don't seem to be working very well.
On the other hand, they did scare our customer service manager terribly this morning when she pulled into the parking lot and saw a coyote right next to the front door. Also, two of our neighbors have stopped by to find out why we have coyotes on the lawn and the local constable cruised sat in our parking lot for several minutes yesterday, apparently to see if we were in violation of some local ordinance. We really need to get rid of the geese (or just encourage them to hang out at our neighbors place), and we're trying to be humane about it. Any ideas?
