Too many Canada geese can make a park unsanitary
- Canada geese proliferate in urban parks with large expanses of short grass near a body of water to feed and breed.
- A goose can produce up to a kilo of feces per day, which can quickly make municipal parks unsanitary and contaminate nearby bodies of water.
- Parents are also very protective of their juveniles and can become aggressive
- An adult goose will tend to return to breed in the same place where it was born, year after year.

One net-> 75% reduction
An urban park in the greater Montreal area was struggling under the invasion of more than 350 Canada geese. Citizens had complained about the unsanitary conditions and the impossibility of having a family picnic there.
Following the recommendations of the urban wildlife management consultant, Filmar analyzed the site and we set up a net barrier near the river, which was used in addition to active methods. Our exclusion nets still allowed full access to the river for anglers.
After 2 breeding seasons, the population was reduced significantly!
We manufacture the best nets in the industry.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is it an approved way to control Canada goose?
Yes, we are following Environnement Canada recommendations.
Canada goose can fly, how nets will help?
The Canada goose can fly for a long time, but its young cannot and they will not leave their babies alone. This is why exclusion nets make spaces less attractive for breeding. Also, birds tend to return to where they were born, so the reduction increases year by year.
How much reduction can we expect?
On average, a first year installation get a 50% population reduction.
What type of customer do you work with?
Most of our customers are cities (park departments), but we also serve golf courses, airports and the like. The solution is sensibly priced, but typically not within reach of most residential projects.
Can it work in conjunction with other solutions?
Yes! Exclusion netting is a passive solution that works best when paired with an active solution like scaring.
