Preventing Muscovy Ducks
The Muscovy Ducks are pest species because they are aggressive and destructive. They befoul lawns and docks, they are aggressive when they are around people, and they rip lawns. For all those reasons, people want to have them trapped and removed.
Of course, you can always hire a professional Muscovy Duck company that will help you get rid of your problem. You will surely find a company listed close in your area. However, before hiring the professionals, you can try somethingto get rid of the Muscovy Ducks.
A Muscovy duck has a red skin on its face and it makes a strange hissing noise. Muscovy ducks will make their nests under shrubs, on the balconies, under porches, in attics, and even in the abandoned nests of other birds. They eat crops, insects, and water plants. They can become aggressive as they are very cautious of the other animals. They can either live alone or in small groups. You will have to expect that they will not hesitate to defend their territory, thus, making them more dangerous.
Since there are federal laws that protect migratory birds, only a few options stay viable while dealing with the Muscovy ducks. Probably the most effective way in dealing with this problem is to decrease the population through rendering the laid eggs sterile. These types of birds are able to lay eggs all year long. They can even lay as many as two dozen eggs at a time. The process to complete gestation will approximately take thirty five days. The eggs are laid in the nest, so first you should discover where the nest is. You should not remove the eggs from the nest, because the hen will simply lay another batch. Instead, you should shake the eggs and then replacing them again where you have found them. The hen will not know that the eggs are no longer viable until a few days have passed. A few days later, you can remove the eggs and dispose of them. The female will later lay another batch, but if you were diligent, the Muscovy Duck population can be kept at bay. Since there is no way of knowing the age of the eggs, you are highly recommended not to break them. In case you break them, you may see a disturbed sight. Also, if you break an egg, you may be left with a live hatchling.
