How it Works
FlightControl® Plus works in two ways
- Anti-feedant (consequence): Geese experience a temporary but very effective digestive irritation, usually within 20 minutes, when they eat turf treated with FlightControl® Plus
- Visual Warning (threat): Geese have four retinal cones (unlike humans, who have three) and have the unique ability to recognize FlightControl® Plus in the ultraviolet light spectrum in addition to the visible light spectrum in which humans see. The appearance of turf treated with FlightControl® 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 FlightControl® Plus once they are conditioned.
Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter.
