01 Duck Removal
Seeing ducks while living in urban areas is most often a source of pleasure. As a humane animal removal company, Trapping USA understands the joy that seeing forms of wildlife can bring. With that being said, many duck populations can grow to a size that creates issues.
While ducks are predominantly aquatic, they are becoming quite the nuisance in Texas. Muscovy ducks are the most common ones in Dallas and Fort Worth, especially in apartment complexes. They are known for their aggressive attitude, acidic and damaging feces, and their nests. The only way to remove ducks from your property (and keep them from coming back) is through effective duck removal services.
Trapping USA offers humane trapping and removal services for Muscovy ducks. We will not only remove them from the property, but we can ensure they don’t return in the future.
Texas has a long history of duck-hunting. While duck populations have long been a regular feature of rural areas, however, residents of urbanized areas are now encountering ducks at higher frequencies than ever before. Numerous species of duck have been undergoing a population explosion in recent years, and several of those species have grown in number so rapidly that they are now considered invasive in some regions.
The mallard is probably the species of duck most often see by residents of the Dallas / Fort Worth metroplex. This species is highly recognizable due to the adult male’s iridescent green head plumage, as well as the white-bordered black speculum feathers on the wings of both sexes. Mallards are often tolerated and even appreciated when living in urban areas, due to their appearance and their generally docile nature. Unlike most other types of waterfowl, mallards will very rarely display aggression towards nearby humans.
Also in contrast to most other types of waterfowl, the mallard has not only been able to adapt to human expansion, it has even been able to benefit from it. This has created issues in regions where mallards multiply. With their high reproductive rate, and the relative rarity of natural predators in urban landscapes, mallards will quickly push other local forms of wildlife out of the search for food; they will eat it all themselves, leaving nothing for anyone else. This can have drastic and irreparable effects on local ecosystems as the delicate balance built on the food chain gets thrown into disarray.
Professional duck control services can remove these aggressive and damaging birds without disrupting the integrity of the species. Whether they are in an apartment complex, becoming a nuisance in a public park, or nesting in your backyard, Trapping USA offers a humane, safe removal service for your property. Our service includes:
Ducks have been known to attack humans that get too close to them, including children and pets. That is why you need a professional wildlife and animal removal service to eradicate your duck problem.
Ducks breed much more rapidly than most other forms of avian wildlife. Most ducks in the area lay clutches of eight to thirteen eggs. Domesticated Muscovy ducks have shown the ability lay three clutches per year. This exacerbates all the other problems a duck infestation can pose – from their aggression to their contamination, all of it gets dialed up in severity when combined with a high reproductive rate.
With all this being said, it may be tempting to simply go out and take care of the problem yourself. It is extremely important you NOT do this! Many species of duck are protected by numerous state and federal regulations. Among these is the Migratory Bird Act, which has been specifically tailored to protect populations of bird species that reside in multiple locations depending on the time of year; interfering with populations of migratory birds will not only damage the local ecosystem’s balance, but also that of faraway locales where these species spend the rest of the year.
