do ducks eat wasps?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

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.

I watched a bumble bee flying around my baby ducks, the ducks ran and screamed like little girls LOL Can't blame the ducks though, the bee was almost as big as they were.
