Birds have always been a problem in agriculture, specially for berries and fruits. Farmers and home owners have been fighting these problems with limited success for centuries. However, the problems with birds on turf are relatively new and are not even known by many people. The "Complete Guide to Pest Control" (Ware 1988) does not even mention geese as a pest, or golf courses as an area of bird problems.
