“One duck is able to eat more than 200 locusts a day,” Lu said in a telephone interview on Thursday, citing results of experiments to test the ducks’ searching and predation capabilities.

A trial will start in China’s western region of Xinjiang later this year before the ducks are sent to Pakistan, Lu said.

Swarms of desert locusts have been spreading through countries from eastern Africa to South Asia,


Where do you get 100,000 ducks?

The Pakistanis can take care of that on their own.

I grew up on a farm and always seemed to have some ducks. They are quite amusing to watch when they are hunting grasshoppers. They seem to go into a "stealth mode" and keep their bodies close to the ground as they hunt.
As far as the question of "What do you do with a duck?", they are very tasty if you don't mind a greasy meat.

Where do you get 100,000 ducks?

Where do you suppose these come from?



A country with over 1.3 billion people who consider duck meat to be highly desirable? You think they can come up with 100,000 ducks?

With birds already packed into around 60 open-sided buildings, farm owner Shenghe Group is expanding further, aiming to raise output by 30% this year to capture record profits as a plunge in pig numbers shrinks production of pork, China’s favorite meat.

“The market prospects are very good now because of African swine fever,” said Shenghe Chairman Wang Shuhong, whose firm sells about 300,000 ducklings a day for fattening and slaughter.

I've been to China where my guides showed me where to get seasoned duck gizzards, tongues, legs, etc. It's really weird too because they're individually vacuum packaged (doesn't require refrigeration) and then sold by weight.

And yes it does say they're from Wuhan.

While I'm not a fan of eating ducks themselves, I do enjoy duck fat in cooking.

On a recent trip to the US, I stumbled across a jar of it from a US based company called "Fatworks"
I purchased it on a whim to use in place of boring (yet very healthy) coconut oil.

Gotta tell ya, oven roasted potatoes have NEVER tasted this good!

Interesting concept, but there's always caveats like the flare up of a bird flu in Pakistan.

If the military is used in this operation, I want to see the insignia or ribbon that goes on the uniform.

Locusts ? Sounds like one of the Biblical plagues ?

Wonder if the ducks will carry / spread the new virus everyone is talking about ?
