It all depends if the fox actually preys on the ducks. Ducks have many more predators than just foxes. Fireants, possums, raccoons, weasles, domesticated cats and dogs, snapping turtles, largemouth bass and man all have an impact on the population of the ducks. Keeping a natural habitat where the duck can safely reproduce it's numbers would be more beneficial than trying to kill off predators that may or may not have any long term effects on the population.
