Post Last topic for the Day !!! Ducks in my Pool !!!
Have searched around and tried all the ideas ive found, but nothing seems to keep ducks away from the pool, and im sick of the duck crap they leave around the edges..

Its only 2 or 3 ducks that hang around, but still, thought id ask here for any new ideas before I buy a sling shot !

Things ive tried..

Fake snakes around the pool
Floating blow up croc
Scarecrow in superman suite !
Even sprinkler system set to a timer didnt scare em away they just loved it more !

Thanks for any extra ideas, prefer ones that actually work though

Help ..before the crows crack onto the idea !!!

Hey Hori,
Are they on your pool or just around the edge?
If they are in the pool you can get a product that makes them sink...they don't like it and stay away. If they are on the edge, the only thing the neighbours found successful was netting the pool area for a while. The ducks only came when they were away so thats when the net went up and came down when they were home.
Having said that ...if you ever get onto a good sling shot let me know :D hello2

Set traps and catch them and then break their necks then pluck them and then cook them and eat them.

No more problem then...
