Floating White Swan Decoy
Swan is a perfect addition. Use for decor or to deter
Geese more economically and without all the costs,
hazards, and time required when spraying repellents. White Swans
are very territorial, making it great to help keep geese away!
aggressively protect their young from Canada Geese, making
this swan an effective deterrent as part of an overall repellent
strategy. Head and neck can be adjusted for a realistic look. This
plastic decoy may be free floated, or secured in the water with
string or decoy weights. It may also be secured on shore with two
steel anchoring stakes (included). Decoy should be moved
periodically to increase effectiveness and used with other
Our White Swan Decoy will help deter Canada Geese from
landing in your pond or water garden. White Swans are very
territorial and will fight off most intruders who venture into
their area. Geese will not want to confront an angry
White Swan and most times will choose another body of water to land
beautiful, hand painted floating swan is the perfect addition to
any pond or backyard setting. Made from durable, lightweight
polymer, this swan is decorated with all weather and non-fading
paint to withstand different types of climates. Most customers have
had great sucess with using the swan decoys in repelling Canada
Geese but there have also been several northern customers who have
had no luck in detering the geese. The swan decoys are just
another weapon in your arsonal of Canada Geese Control. If
nothing else, these decoys do make a nice addition to any body of
water. Customers have called and asked if we guarentee the
swan decoys will work. I tell them most customers have had
great sucess, but there is no guarentee, written nor implied.
Folks, we are talking about nature. Anything can
happen! The good news is you will have a realistic looking
white mute swan floating happily on your pond or lake. That
alone is worth the price!
have also reported increased control by letting the first 3'-6' of
the vegetation around the pond grow to a mature height.
Canada Geese do not like crossing through this vegetative
buffer because it is where many of their natural preditors will lay
and wait to kill the geese. The buffer will help stop the
daily trips from the water to your lawn and back again. With
the addition of decoys, you should be able to convince the Geese to
fly off to another location that is more inviting. You can
also try our coyote decoy (see related products below) to keep off
your lawn. See video below for more creative
This is why
you want the Swan Decoy to scare away the Canada Geese from your
property. The sound you heard when you first visited this
page was the loud squaking of a Canada Goose. If they land on
your propery, they will forage on the grassy areas on your
property. When they "feel the need", they will produce piles
of nasty poo dropping over your property. Besides the ovious
health hazards of the poo, it is unsightly and unpleasant to step
in and have to remove from your shoes. If you have children
or dogs, they can pick up or roll in the poo droppings creating a
very smelly mess for you to clean up. My yellow lab thought
the poo was a "tasty" treat before he decided to do a full body
slide through the poo leaving a green/brown mess in his fur for me
to clean. He would then stand up and smile with a look that
said "that was fun, I think I will do it again!"
(Anyone who has owned a lab can relate to my
situation). We now have a swan decoy (seen in pictures above)
in our pond and the Coyote Decoy on
the shore to help scare away the Canada Geese. I attached a
20' fishing line tether to the bottom of the swan which is
connected to a brick that I put into the pond. As the wind
blows, the decoy moves around on top of the water. So far,
of the decoys in place, my lab & my lawn have stayed free of
Canada Geese Poo. Now if I can get him to stop trying to
"hump" the coyote decoy, I will be all set. ...
PS. If you do
not tether the swan decoy, make sure to move it around so the
Canada Geese think it is real. This will increase
effectiveness. If it is left in the same location, the geese
will quickly figure out the decoy is fake and will not be afraid of
it. Great for use with other deterrent methods like the
Coyote and allowing the first 2' of growth next to the pond to be
allowed to grow tall and wild. This will help keep the geese
off your lawn.
had feedback from many customers that the Alligator Decoys (sold
below in Related
Products) also help in detering Canada
Geese from small to medium ponds along with the Swan
Background on Geese
The scientific name for Canada Geese is Branta
canadensis. The birds often migrate in the fall, but isolated
populations may reside year round. Nesting begins in March and
April, in the riparian zone near a waterbody.
One goose can consume up to four pounds of
grass per day, producing about three pounds of fecal matter per
day. This can contribute to excessive amounts of nutrient loading
because their feces contain 76% carbon, 4.4% nitrogen, and 1.3%
phosphorus. These nutrients can cause harmful algal blooms in lakes
from runoff. To make matters worse Cryptosporidium parvum, a
protozoan linked to the feces of animals has caused over 400,000
sicknesses and a recorded six deaths (Worsnop,
