Treated turf appears natural when viewed by humans.
Treated turf appears speckled when viewed by geese in the UV spectrum.
FlightControl Plus from Arkion is an EPA-approved goose repellent that gets the birds to leave without harm, while preventing the "drop" of parasite-carrying feces, grass damage, and aggressive goose behavior. FlightControl Plus is formulated to deter geese with the removal of their trusted food source. Geese feed on FlightControl Plus-treated turfgrass and experience a temporary yet effective digestive irritation minutes to hours after feeding. The geese will not hesitate to eat treated turf if they have not encountered treated turf before. However, after eating treated turf, the learned memory association with treated turf and irritation after ingestion occurs. After one or several encounters with FlightControl Plus treated turfgrass, geese associate the UV absorbing material on grass leaves with the digestive irritation and will seek non-treated food elsewhere.
