Default problem with ducks, geese & coons

I have a problem with geese and ducks crapping all over my lot. I live on a
small lake and crapp is everywhere. I would appreciate any suggestions you
may have that would help me get rid of them sitting/roosting on my lot. Is
there something that I could spray on the ground to get rid of them?

I also have trouble with coons getting into my boat house on the walkway and
scattering mussel shells after breaking them open, and also shitting on the
walkway inside the boathouse. I'm fed up with picking up their crap. Any
suggestions how I can solve that problem too?
Thanks a lot for your help.

If you're in a rural area, a 12 guage shotgun will do nicely. Otherwise,
you'll have to try to get your state's fish and wildlife service to remove
them. They do this sometimes in urban areas, herd the big birds into
pens and relocate them.

Is there something that I could spray on the
ground to get rid of them?


Aside from lead shot, I don't know of anything.

Well, we're using the Havahart traps and relocating them. But...
us gardeners don't mind a bit of crap at all, it's seeing our plants
destroyed
that gets us "fed up." If I had no garden, I'd enjoy the critters and
simply
get a pressure washer, and from time to time, clean the walkways.

Get a dawg.

Not some sissy city dawg, but a Genuwine Kuntry Dawg (tm),
one that knows coons are to be barked at and chased, not
engaged in battle.

Use your oven at about 375 F. Baste with butter sauce often. A grill works
pretty good also.

Welcome to the real world. Live trap the coons and send them away or make
them into hats. Eat the ducks and geese. Duck a l'orange is very good. Use
the crap as fertilizer and grow some vegetables. Are you an American? Use
good old fashioned "American Knowhow".

In our last fun filled episode, Tue, 1 Jul 2003 08:46:57 -0400,
"Fudge" proclaimed:

Welcome to the real world.


Yeah! The real world, where we stalk our dinner in the frozen
food section and capture our cellophane wrapped prey
on styrofoam trays.

Use good old fashioned "American Knowhow".


I know how to go to The Piggly Wiggly and buy meat that
some unlucky slob has cleaned and neatly packed for me.


Pam, been there, cleaned chickens, ain't gonna do it no more.
