'Billy the Exterminator' Battles Geese With Umbrellas (VIDEO)

'Billy the Exterminator'Overpopulation can be just as dangerous to an animal species as hunting them to endangerment. On 'Billy the Exterminator' (Tue., 10PM ET on A&E), Billy and Ricky joined up with Goosebusters out of North Carolina to tackle a problem with the geese population.

The organization uses a more humane method for managing the population called egg degradation, but that doesn't mean the geese are going to roll over and accept what's happening to them.

It's not like they understand it's for their own good. In that respect, would we?

It's kind of funny that this organization that has a name and a clear mission didn't have the most logical tools for the task. The sight of Ricky waving that rainbow-colored umbrella as a barrage of flying geese attacked was certainly memorable. The umbrella proved an inadequate tool for the mission as the geese had no problem tearing through it. Sometimes it hurts to do the right thing ... literally.

What exactly is egg degradation? Does it kill the geese inside the eggs?

Hey, actually using the umbrellas is the best tool during nesting season. We also use our border collies, but not during nesting season because of how aggressive the geese are. Mostly our umbrellas don't get broken...we just let Billy and Ricky confront the worst of our aggressive geese. Usually, you can pop the umbrella open at the last minute and it will scare the goose off the nest. Diana Travis, Goose Busters! The Border Collie Patrol; Charlotte, NC
