While the vast majority of people may think that
ducks are cute little animals, the truth remains
that these creatures can be quite dangerous to
you, your family, and your pets. That may seem
quite ridiculous to the vast majority of people,
but the truth is that certain species of ducks
carry diseases that can be dangerous, if not fatal
to the vast majority of people.
One such example is the Muscovy duck. This is a
wild form of dock that originally remained in
tropical climates but has now moved to virtually
any location on the earth. They are even adapting
quite well in cold weather climates, which is
becoming a concern to many people because species
of other animals who have not come in contact with
the pathogens carried by these ducks before are
now at risk of becoming sick or even dying from
the diseases that are carried by them. By them
being on your property, you are at serious risk of
endangering your family from the diseases that
they carry. This is why you want to do all that
you can to keep the off of your land and away from
the ones you love. If you are looking for ways to
repel these ducks from your property, then here
are some ideas for you to employ.
The first of these is an obvious one. If you
eliminate the reasons for them to be on your land
then they will not come around. What this means is
that you should eliminate potential food sources
or places where they can set up their own
residence there. If you have birdfeeders, places
where seeds can be found, or locations that would
seem ideal for one of these animals to set up its
residence then you need to try to eliminate that.
By doing so you deny the bird its primary needs
and it will look somewhere else for these items.
You should also look into getting commercial
repellents to help you with this problem. Before
doing so, understand that repellents only have a
limited potential for assisting you. Because of
the fact that birds can fly and that the
repellents effects will wear off during rain or
heavy winds, you will only see a limited time.
Where these can work. However, you may only need a
small amount of time. It may still be to your
advantage to use a repellent.
If you have locations where water will build up,
you want to do all that you can to eliminate
those. Standing water is one of the things that
will attract a Muscovy duck to your land. If you
take that away you will not have to worry about
them returning so easily.
Also, if you have a garden or other large area of
vegetation it is a good idea to fence those in and
put netting over the top. This will stop at the
dock from being able to gain access and will keep
it away from your land.
