Formulario 2

If I leave the ducks alone will they just go away?

This depends on the situation. If the ducks have been receiving food from a resident and they stop feeding them, then the ducks should eventually leave. Ducks in condo complexes and ducks in apartment complexes are usually being fed by the residents. This is difficult for property management to monitor. If the ducks are living in an attic then it will take time for them to leave. They will leave their feces and urine all over the insulation creating expensive damage.

A duck laid eggs in my attic. Will the baby ducks leave when they get big enough?

The Muscovy Duck’s eggs will hatch after about 30 to 35 days. The chicks will stay with their mother for about 10 to 12 weeks. In this time, the ducks have left behind a lot of feces and urine. If those ducks leave then the scent left behind will tell another duck that this attic is a good place to nest. It is best to have the ducks removed as soon as possible.

Why is duck removal important if they are in my attic?

Ducks will leave behind a large amount of feces and urine, which will ruin the insulation and drywall. Once a duck gets into an attic it will leave behind a terrible smell that can consume a house.

A duck died in my attic. If I leave it there will the smell go away?

Depending on the season, it could take a very long time for the smell of any dead animal to go away. In the summer, a dead animal can smell very strong for a few weeks and then start to get better. In the winter the smell might not be as bad, but could last for months. In either case, it is important to get the dead animal removed professionally.
