I have a terrible problem with mosquitoes. My campbell ducks don't eat them. I was wondering if Muscovies really eat many mosquitoes. There is some mosquito catching machine but it is around $400. If Muscovies really eat many of them I would love to add them to my little flock. Thanks

i live in florida with plenty of mosquitos and when i take my 2 scovy ducklings that are only a week and a half old outside they chase them down and eat them right out of mid air! they even snag them off of me if one lands on me

Yes and they eat every other bug that is around flys, roaches, slugs, worms, they even eat weeds. Hardy wonderful ducks!
