I live in Phoenix and in early March I had a Mallard and Drake that decided my pool was a nice watering hole to visit. They would poop on the deck and then walk in it and poop in the pool. I put a plastic owl on the edge of the deck, moved it daily, it didn't do anything. I bought a blow up alligator and let it float around, the next morning I noticed what might have been a dropping, but I wasn't positive. Not taking any chances, I stopped at Lowe's and bought a 100' piece of water proof orange nylon rope, strung it back and forth across the pool. It looked silly, but no more ducks. I left the rope on for a couple weeks, it's been off for a week now, first week of April, and still no more ducks.

You can also call your local wildlife conservator and ask for them to come and remove the ducks. They will relocate them to a more appropriate location.


I have found a perfect solution.Wrap reynolds wrap or aluminum foil around brick like a gift... place around the deck of your pool. I had about 20 ducks a day and they were a nusence..dirty and constant. The ducks don't like the shiny and so this cheap method has worked perfectly!! Kept the stuff out for about 3 weeks and no ducks have returned at all!! I also had my pool raft floating with object wrapped in foil on top...easy and totally works!!!!
You need to change their habit. Relocation while effective in the short term will not ultimately successful. Products like Kings Duck Solution are naturally designed to move the ducks away and for good. Ropes, relocation and shiny objects are the tales of old wives. Kings Duck Solution has been born from a need and now answers this age old problem of ducks gathering and fouling - safely.
Thanks for the feedback!
