About Us

L ong Island Geese Control is a family-owned and operated company that saw its beginning in mid 1997.  Bill Alemaghides, Sr., a newly laid-off worker from Northrop Grumman with nothing more than a dog and a crazy dream, began going door-to-door looking for someone… anyone that might be interested in his idea.  Few would listen.  It wasn’t for a lack of potential customers.  Canada Geese were a nuisance everywhere.  It’s just that, well…the idea seemed a bit outlandish.  So, he serviced a few places for free for a while.  Soon, these people saw just what it was that he had been trying to sell - that his Border Collie, Meg, was the real deal.  In 1998, he got a second dog, Misty, bought a used jeep to work out of, and Long Island Geese Control was born.

Bill soon realized that he needed some help and began employing, one by one, his friends that had also lost their jobs at the ailing Grumman, as well as immediate family members.  A few more Border Collies and a tripling of customers just one year later, Bill was on his way to success. 

In 2003, Bill sold the company to his son, and dog handler, Bill Jr.  Today, Long Island Geese Control employs a dozen trained dog handlers including a wildlife biologist, owns thirteen Border Collies, and uses ten work vehicles on any given day.  We currently serve locations that span all of Long Island, including world-class golf courses, fortune 500 corporate headquarters, an impressive number of area school districts, federal institutions, state, county, community and municipal parks, as well as dozens of private residences, to name a few.

Long Island Geese Control continues to lead the industry with its relentless approach to customer satisfaction.  We are fully aware that at the end of the day, all we have is our reputation, and we take it very seriously.  If you have a goose problem, we aim to show you what we are all about.
