Product
Information

Repels troublesome geese with their natural enemy

  • Effective in land or in water

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. Plastic decoy may be free floated, or secured in the water with string or decoy weights (not included). 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. 33"Lx18"Wx19"H. Imported.

    I had a pair of ducks that decided my pool was a fabulous place to swim. I couldn't keep the ducks away. I used a pair of these swans to float around in my swimming pool. I haven't seen these ducks since. I am not sure if they decided to move on, or if these new swans were effective in keeping these ducks out of the pool. Either way, the goal was to keep the ducks from my pool and so far I haven't seen them since my new swans arrived. I plan on putting them in my pool as soon as the cover is off. I might even keep staked in my yard for the fall and winter to keep the Canada Geese from my yard.

    I thought the swan would be a good idea to inhibit the proliferation of geese on our property. From the first moment we put the swan out, the geese came right up to it as though it was their new good friend.
    We're very sorry it wasn't successful.

    Lifelike Floating Swan repels Geese!

        Comments about Mute Swan Decoy:

        We purchased 2 Swans, 1 Coyote decoy, and 1 Dead Canadian Goose Decoy to keep away a flock of nesting Canadian Geese (at least 5 nesting pair). The Swans really do float. The head and neck connections are made to swivel/change positions. An nice feature, but I think the design can be made better, I used gorilla glue to permanently join the face joint because I thought it might come loose in bad weather. Tie a string on them if you want to retrieve them, or use a Kayak to get them out of water before winter. They were purchased for use at a small Wastewater treatment facility. So far the Canadian geese have stayed away. We will know for sure in a few weeks if they deter the unwanted Geese for the season!

            Purchased 4 decoys for lakefront home to repel geese. Sadly, the geese were back within 24 hours! Returned the decoys and put up a fence! So far so good!

            The swan decoys didn't remain floating upright in water. We had to install them in mulch beds.

              We bought 2 of these swans to prevent ducks from messing our swimming pool up, they don't work. The ducks hang out with the swans. We wasted almost 100.00
