You find something...post it, I hate those noseums! I have to wear my hunt wear - long sleeve and long pants - for the mosquitos and those itty bitty ones. Sure they're lightweight and breathe but still...with the humidity, it's like wearing wet towels.

Since we are now in the storm season how would you protect your flock? We build our coop well, using truss clips and anchors in the ground. Any tips would be great.
Thanks so much
Wow, sounds like you did a secure build. If we get any of the weather they're talking about, chickens are going into our store room. Bigand roomy, secure, concrete walls, attached to the house, quickly accessible if it gets ugly and we got to bug out. Yup.
