South Central Kansas Chapter committee members have led by example, pulling together to host six events in 2007, earning them the 2007 Presidential Citation award.
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 have continued to get excellent wood duck use from our boxes without having any insect problems."
