    Now that summer is here, we have a horrible mosquito problem. They are all over the ducks coop, pen, pools, and everywhere in the yard. They are following my ducks around! Is it safe to smoke the yard that the ducks wander around in? What should I do?

    Do you dump water containers on a regular basis?

    Just like mosquito spray, but yeah I didn’t think it’s be good because I don’t want it harming the ducks
