Will ducks eat ticks, or other insects from the yard? I have read some places that they will, but other places I have read they won't... So from personal experience, are they any help in ridding your yard of ticks? I know that guinea hens are good for insect control, but I have no interest in raising them. I had ducks growing up, and am interested in possibly getting back into them - however, the property I have just moved to appears to have a lot more ticks than where I have previously lived. I don't want to spray or sprinkle my yard with chemicals as I have dogs who are always outdoors, so if ducks are an option to rid my yard of ticks I think I may reintroduce them to my property sooner than planned. If ducks will eat ticks, which breed would be the best for this? I have heard Pekins will, but I'm not sure if this is true? Thank you.
