Geese on the Beach?


We heard about Meeker’s Magic a year ago, but as it is made in Ontario, it is a bit of a challenge to get to BC economically.

Our understanding is that the compost product made from Trout farm fish wastes and sawdust has reportably had a repellent effect on some animal species, like Canada Geese. The manufacturer doesn’t make any claims, but folks who use the product do.

So we thought we’d give it a try at the North Okanagan Sailing Assn Site. The lawn there is on pure sand and could use the top dress of organic matter anyway, as per the label directions.

The first picture shows the geese foraging away on the grass when I arrived.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The second picture shows after I had topdressed by hand on the lawn area, just 20 feet or so up from the beach. Also, you can see a garden hose running towards the beach and the geese on the right hand side of it.  There was no treatment on the right side, but there was on the left.  Also the geese walked over but did not stop on the treated 1st 20 feet, but stopped and started eating where there was no treatment.

Pretty interesting results I’d say!
