Ducks, The Almost Perfect Natural Pest Controllers
These three ducks, a very close-knit team, wonder up from the lake several times a day and begin to forage amongst the plants, but what are they looking for? The ducks, 2 Indian Runner and 1 Crested, are the perfect natural pest control devouring snails hiding in the foliage and once they have had their fill they waddle back down to the lake.
Only one slight drawback with having these feathered friends looking for food within the plants, as can be seen by the photograph below, they are not the most dainty of creatures, not caring what they tread on to get at their favourite delicacy, l'escargot.
