Only landowners, homeowners' associations, and local governments (and their employees or their agents) in the lower 48 States and the District of Columbia are eligible to implement the resident Canada goose nest and egg depredation order.

Landowners, homeowners' associations, and local governments (collectively termed “registrants”) must also register each employee or agent working on their behalf.

Once registered, registrants and agents will be authorized to act under the depredation order.

We examined whether mammalian predators could be taught to stop opening all eggs (treated and untreated) after the predators were preconditioned by being allowed to open eggs containing an irritating odor.

We tested this using 29 captive coyotes (Canis latrans) and pulegone, a Volatile chemical that is irritating to coyotes.

The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (VDGIF) and the U. Department of Agriculture’s Wildlife Services Program are continuing to work together to offer Virginia farmers this important tool to manage problems caused by Resident Canada geese.
