Does anyone have a cheap & successful suggestion to keeping geese and ducks from using my waterfront yard for their "bathroom"? I've tried installing shiny ribbon material to a string from one end of yard to another, but that doesn't scare them off. I've tried plastic fencing, but in high winds, that blows over. I've tried rope floats but they just swim over them. Geese "waste" is nasty. Can make people and pets very sick.
I know some people suggest sprinkling crushed red pepper seeds to
keep stray dogs from using your lawn for their "pitstops", so wondered if anyone has tried this w/geese.
