Geese will normally feel comfortable in an area filled with human. This may include private properties, farms, and parks. Unfortunately, the goose will defecate once in every 20 minutes. This means that their droppings can easily accumulate. The droppings of the California goose have tube shape and the color may vary depending on their diet. It may appear dark brown, white, or sometimes green. Aside from being unsightly, the droppings of these pesky creatures can spread illness such as giardia, salmonella, listeria, and E. coli.
How to Remove the Droppings of the San Diego Goose
In case you notice a presence of the goose excrement in your yard, it can be a possible sign that you are experiencing from an infestation. This will place you at a higher health risk. It may also damage your plants and foliage. As soon as you notice a large accumulation of droppings, it is time for you to call the help of the animal removal company. After that, you will have to clean and decontaminate your surroundings to minimize the possibility of contracting diseases.
Use a Hose
Getting rid of the droppings that have been stuck on the concrete surface would be difficult. In order to remove the hardened poop, start by hosing off the surface. It would be better if your hose can release a decent amount of pressure. Continue doing that until a large percentage of the San Diego goose dropping has been removed from your concrete surface.
There are various cleaning solutions to choose from but we advise you to look for a solution that comes with a disinfectant. If you don’t have it, the dish-washing liquid detergent would be sufficient. You will also need a scrub brush with a tough bristle to completely eliminate the remaining droppings. The scrub together with the detergent will loosen the stain on the concrete surface.
After brushing the concrete surface, do not immediately wash away the surface with water. Instead, prepare a decent amount of sawdust and cover the surface. The sawdust has the capacity to absorb the moisture and the soap. This is a better way to get rid of the soap on the surface. It should only take 20 minutes for the sawdust to absorb the content. After this, you can easily sweep the sawdust using your dustpan and broom.
Treat the Surface
Discoloration and stains will not be completely eliminated on the concrete surface using the procedure aforementioned. As a better solution, you will need to prepare an ammonia-hydrogen peroxide solution to clear the discoloration. Simply pour the solution directly on the stain. Scrub it and let it sit for a couple of minutes. Again, cover it with sawdust to absorb the remaining solution. Once it dries up, sweep the sawdust on the surface.
This is the best way to clean the droppings of the goose on your concrete surface. This will guarantee you that your house will not only be free from the poop of the nuisance creature but the microorganism that causes diseases will also be eliminated.
