Geese vs Swan
Will a pair of Mute Swans keep Canada Geese away from a
3 acre pond site?
Maybe, but my opinion is, probably not. Swans are often used in an attempt
to discourage C. geese, and sometimes it works, sometimes not. It seems to
me that 3 acres is a pretty big territory for one pair of swans to defend
and that the geese will just move a "safe" distance from the swans.
