There are a couple of ducks in my yard (male and female). I think they have come to my backyard to make a nest. I fear that if this happens half my backyard will become off-limits due to an angry duck-mom. I also worry that they will munch on my seedlings in the spring. How do I get rid of them?
I have read that hanging CDs on trees could deter them. Does this work?
I know a dog would do the trick, but I don't want a pet. Also, both of my neighbours have dogs and the ducks do not mind them so far.
I want to stay away from pesticides, but if that is my only option I will use it.
