Abstract/Contents:"Enter Marvin S. Preiser of Middletown, a chemist and consultant who has figured out a way to use grape flavoring to chase geese off of golf courses, away from airports and anyplace else the birds are a nuisance. The chemical, methyl anthranilate, will not harm the birds or the environment, Preiser said." Geese hate grape and therefore will quickly learn that they will have to search elsewhere for food. The approval process for the chemical (tradename ReJex-It) may take six months or more.
