How it Works
Flight Control® Plus works in two ways
- Anti-feedant (consequence): Geese experience a temporary but very effective digestive irritation, usually within 45 minutes, when they eat turf treated with Flight Control® Plus
- Visual Warning (threat): Geese have four retinal cones (unlike humans, who have three) and have the unique ability to recognize Flight Control® Plus in the ultraviolet light spectrum in addition to the visible light spectrum in which humans see. The appearance of turf treated with Flight Control® Plus is unnatural and, 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 have shown that birds will refuse to eat food treated with the active ingredient in Flight Control® Plus once they are conditioned.
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.
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 Control® Plus the most effective, long-term and persistent method for preventing geese, it is also the least expensive on a yearly basis.
