I read that ducks eat flys. I have tons of wasps and hornets, yucky stingy things. Do ducks eat them? Or maybe some other poultry?

They might eat a wasp once. :o Then they learn their lesson. I watched one of my ducklings catch a hornet and try to eat it but it stung her inside the mouth and she quickly spit it out.
Ducks aren't natural predators of stinging flying insects. I don't think any poultry are. Mine snap at them, but they snap at everything that flies around their heads. I don't think they've ever caught one.
The best way to get rid of things like that is to eliminate the nests. I get rid of the bothersome ones near the house and leave the rest alone. As annoying as wasps are, they're actually beneficial insects because they control other damaging insects.
