Mallard Duck

Ducks are great, aren't they? Why are you shaking your head? Have you had to deal with a duck problem in the past--or worse--are you dealing with one right now? It's okay. We understand. Ducks can be a real pain in the butt, especially if that is where they bite you. But, not all ducks are created equal. There is one pest duck that stands out from the others. Let's take a look at this troublemaker and see if we can find a solution.

Do you know that nearly 70% of Hawaii's native bird species are found nowhere else on the planet? But many of these species are in decline or in danger of extinction, and waterfowl are no exception. The Hawaiian Duck also called the Koloa maoli, which means "native duck," is in now on the Federal list of endangered species because of a duck species that is not native to the state. The Mallard, brought to Hawaii for farming, sports hunting and pond beautification, is now mating the Koloa maoli and other native ducks into extinction. If this were the only reason to catch these ducks and cook their goose it would be worth it, but Mallards pose other issues for residents.

Mallards can get aggressive and attack people and pets.

Their droppings are not only unsightly, but are also considered a slipping hazard and a health hazard. These birds are opportunistic foragers, which can bring them in contact with harmful bacteria.

Mallards damage landscaping and lawns as they feed and nest.
