Member Tip
Bug Out

We have several wood duck boxes mounted on steel poles on a pond in northern Minnesota. We used to clean out the houses in late summer after the ducklings had left. We changed our minds after discovering hornet or wasp nests inside some of the boxes. Now we empty and put fresh sawdust in them just before ice-out. We have continued to get excellent wood duck use from our boxes without having any insect problems."
