It may seem like a quirky way to keep the snail population in check, but it works! In line with our BioLOGIC® approach, we take our cues from Mother Nature when it comes to pest control. Perhaps the most picturesque of our natural pest management methods is the employment of a posse of glossy white Pekin ducks who range through green vineyards on snail patrol.
These ducks are entrained from young to voluntarily gather in the custom-made ‘duck-mobile’ and go out each weekday to do their work. Happily, they waddle between the vines and forage in the cover crops for snails. They are a highly effective and cost-efficient team who protect us from the damage that snails can do without having to resort to poisonous bait or the organically approved substitutes for snail control. Now, you can see them in action – Enjoy!
