    last year my mixed breed ducks would go out each morning, and in a single file line the hen and the ducklings would start eating away and since a predator attack i only have 4 ducks left. so whats the best mosquito eater?

    Thanks, ~RoO~

    I would say most ducks actually "generate" more mosquitos. They do this by creating large bodies of disgusting, muddy, stagnant water. LOL gotta love em.
