How it Works
Flight ControlÂ® Plus is the Most Effective Goose Repellent Available Because It Works In Two Ways
Flight Control Plus is the most effective Goose Repellent Available. You will get better long-term results with a program using Flight Control than any other goose control method. Other Goose Deterrents can give you quick results. However, the results only last a few days until the geese realize that there is no actual threat to the area. Flight Control is so effective because of how it works:
How Flight Control Works:
- Anti-feedant (consequence): Geese experience a temporary, but very effective, digestive irritation when they eat turf treated with Flight ControlÂ® Plus.
- Visual Warning (threat): Geese have four retinal cones (unlike humans, who have three). They have the unique ability to recognize Flight ControlÂ® PlusÂ in the ultraviolet light spectrumÂ in addition to the visible light spectrum in which humans see. The appearance of turf treated withÂ Flight ControlÂ® Plus is unnatural to geese. Once conditioned to the digestive reaction, the visual signal of the treated turf provides a warning to the geese not to eat the turf. Studies show that birds will refuse to eat food treated with the active ingredient in Flight ControlÂ® PlusÂ once they are conditioned.
Why Flight ControlÂ® Plus is Effective:
3. It usually takes less than a day, but once the geese learn to not feed on the unnatural looking grass, they move on to one of their other daily feeding sites. A typical flock of geese will have up to 10 different feeding sites that they will visit during the day. Because of all their feeding sites, taking one off the rotation is easy.
4. Alternative harassment methods such as Lasers, Lights, Sound Makers, Pyrotechnics, Predator Decoys, etc. will only give short-term results. Once the geese realize these don’t pose a real threat, they will return to the area and resume their activity. Compared to these other methods of Goose Control, not only is using Flight ControlÂ® Plus the most effective, long-term and persistent method for preventing geese, it is also the least expensive on a yearly basis.
