(UNDATED) - Most goose problems occur from March through June, during the nesting season. While defending nests and their young, geese can become very aggressive - sometimes running toward people while flapping and biting.

Geese can also cause damage when many young are hatched in one area. Once out of the egg, goslings are not able to fly for about 70 days, so young birds and their parents are stuck in one place.

Geese enjoy eating tender turf grass and garden plants. Damage to landscaping can be significant, and large amounts of manure can render areas unfit for human use.

Fortunately, many goose-related problems are preventable. There are several options for managing immediate nuisance goose issues visit http://www.in.gov/dnr/fishwild/2351.htm
