On 25 March 2020 Smithsonian Magazine reported:
For nearly four decades, South Africa's Vergenoegd Low Wine Estate has been deploying a daily parade of waterfowl more than 1,200 strong to keep their snail and insect population in check, Ulrike Lemmin-Woolfrey reports for Atlas Obscura. The approach helps remove snails and bugs from the establishment, which opened in 1696, without the need for harsh chemicals that could damage the environment. 'We try to keep a pesticide-free farm by using the ducks,' Denzil Matthys, Vergenoegd's duck caretaker, told NPR's Sarah Birnbaum in 2016. 'They help us not to use poison on the farm.'
