Deter geese, save money & time by reducing the need for chemicals, and further decorate your water feature with the OrnaMates™ Floating Swan Decoy. Swans are very territorial animals as they naturally compete with geese for nesting space and food. It is well known that a pair of swans can deter or even scare away a flock of geese before they have the chance to nest!
From product dimensions to operation manuals, the TECH SPECS tab contains all of the information you need to choose the right equipment for your pond.
|Dimensions||33" L x 18" W x 19" H|
How To Use
Simply assemble the swan decoy out of the box and choose a shallow area close to the shore of your pond. The swan can be anchored in shallow water by running string through the three tabs found on the body of the swan and tying this string to a weighted object of choice to help keep the object secured. For best results, swans should float in pairs and be anchored in shallow areas allowing them to move without coming into contact with the shore
When To Use
Use during the spring and fall seasons, and store during the winter months.

"So Pretty!"Trio Carroway of Milbrook, SD
I love my decoy swan. It looks great in my little 2 acre "pond". I move it around to confuse the geese and it really works!View entire review
" Swans decoys DON'T WORK"Randy Davis of Saginaw, MI
This is what I sent to the Pond Guy on April 2, 2011 but never heard anything back. My wife saw your ad regarding swan decoys stopping geese from nesting and bought two swans from you, Order (CAN NOT POST ORDER #) on 3/15/2011. On their arrival I immediately put them on the exact nesting spot from the prior two years which is about 75 feet from our bedroom windows. The geese had not yet arrived. This morning, at 6:30 AM, 4/2/11, they showed up with their usual honking and other associated noises. As you can see from the attached photos the swan decoys do not deter the nesting geese on our waterfall. I suggest that maybe your ads need some refinement or retraction. Do you have any other "great" suggestions that might actually work? Maybe something a little less expensive and don't recommend a "couple of shotgun shells" please. Since I can't attach photos to this review if you email me at (CAN NOT POST eMAIL ADDRESS), I will forward to you living proof that swan decoys DO NOT WORK. PS: If you still want to buy a pair I'll sell you mine. ***Response from The Pond Guy***We do offer a satisfaction guarantee on our products, just call our customer service department and request an RMA# to return the product. We have also have several customers who have had positive results with the swan decoys.View entire review
"Just pretty"Darlene Cablish of Hunter, OH
Worthless to deter geese, ducks, or herons. I've moved them added touches of paint to make them more realistic, but waterfowl swim right around them.View entire review
"pretty but worthless"Darlene Cablish of Hunter, OH
From a distance they are impressive but do nothing to keep the geese away ***Response From The Pond Guy - Keep in mind, decoys need to be moved regularly to be effective.View entire review
"Lovely but ineffectual"Darlene Cablish of Hunter, OH
From a distance the pair are awesome. I weight them to the bottom with a nylon cord. After a strong wind they sometimes turn over. As the head and neck pieces are separate, I recommend gluing the pieces onto the body, otherwise they might sink. I've had to repaint them every year. All this work but they are very aesthetically pleasing. Sadly they are equally ineffectual as the Canadian geese swim around them. Moving their position on my 2.5 acre pond does not help. They are good as weather vanes.View entire review
