Floating White Swan Decoy

The White Swan is a perfect addition. Use for decor or to deter Canada 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!

Mute swans 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 deterrent methods.

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 in. 

This 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! 

Customer's 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 suggestions.

  • Sold Individually but price drops with quanity purchases.
  • Customer's report a pair of decoys works better than an individual decoy because it simulates a mated pair (Male and female).  Since in the wild swans mate for life, in a mated pair, the male would fiercely defend his territory and want to protect his mate (& off-spring).
  • Adjustable Movable Head & Neck (see Main Photo on top right of 2 possible positions).  To make the swan's head in the lower position, you would remove the neck and head and re-connect it in the reverse direction with the short curved portion now connected to the body and the head attached to the opposit end of the neck.  Takes less than 10 seconds to make the change with the twist and insert molded ends of the neck & head.

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, with both 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.  ...   TED

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.

We have 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 Decoys.

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, 1994).
