Try deleting all of them and make sure to turn off the gardening service.

I canceled the gardening service a long time ago, and every time I delete one, another one replaces them.

Would you be willing to share your save with me ?

If so, please zip your saves folder and upload it somewhere like dropbox, mediafire, googledrive or OneDrive and PM me the link.

The same thing is happening to me with the gardeners. The maid works ok.  I haven't tried the other NPCs yet. I thought it was caused by CC/mods so I removed them and the same happened. It is really annoying. I keep eliminating them (the NPCs) using MCCC and everytime I do that a new gardener shows up. Like the OP, I've had up to 3 at the same time. One of them will go inside to do his-/her work but will refuse to leave even when I fire them. The other 2 gardeners will either refuse to leave and stay at the front door waving to the mailbox or leave and come again short after.

The best way to get rid of them for good is to add them to your household first, then delete through CAS.

The Gardener won't go away after his job is finished

What happens when the bug occurs? The gardener wouldn't go away and he kept waving to the mailbox!
What do you expect to see? The gardener should disappeared after his job is finished.

One day I noticed that my gardener won't leave after his job is finished. I fired him but he's still there. I invited him to go elsewhere with me then I come back, but he showed up at my house again. The only way I can keep him out of my sight is to lock him in the basement. He's old and he died, but the second day a new gardener showed up he also waved to the mailbox...I already removed my garden and I did not hire any service. Does anyone has any solutions to this? It's really annoying.

Marking this as solution for visibility. It's still an open Bug

 


To get rid of the extra ServiceNPCs, please do the following steps

 

  1. Open the cheat console with ctl-shift-c
  2. Type: testingcheats true
  3. shift-right-Click on all the serviceNPCs you want to get rid of and add them to your household
  4. Make sure you cancel all the regular npcs you have hired
  5. Got to Manage Household and load your family in CAS
  6. Delete all the extra serviceNPCs from your household
  7. Load the game and play for a while. No new one should show up
  8. Open the cheat console with ctl-shift-c
  9. Type: testingcheats false

This is a HUGE long shot, but I had a thought early this morning...

 

Do the affected households have toddlers living in them?
