Every time you see or hear them .....go disturb them, clap hands if flying over, throw handy pine cones, sticks etc when they have landed (just remember to get cones off the house roof so they don't block gutters). Chase them off with the ducklings, ie deliberately be a predator, ignore the parents go for the ducklings....I've got to handle many a duckling that way. For some reason we no longer have ducks of any sort 'enjoy' our dam :D . Ohh, encourage pukekos.

Shoot near them, and then during shooting season find a local to cull them. Though, and you'll have to check, I think you can actually kill problem ducks as long as you leave them where they lie. Check with Fish and Game.

We have the same problem. Hubby put in a new crop and they are there eating all the new crop, unfortunately it is a long way from the house and being disabled I am unable to keep going there to shoo them off. Hubby does in the morning and evening when he is home but they are back in no time at all. He is so upset spending all that money spraying/getting a contractor in to drill it and spraying again

We have a pair who for some reason like to sun themselves on the back door step. If I hear them I quietly go around and fire a a couple of rounds from a shotgun in the air. I have only had to do it a couple of times to discourage them.
