    So long story short. I fell asleep before removing the treat dish the other day.
    This morning when I went to go get it I found ants.
    I can use permethrin spray or dust to treat for ants ?

    You would think the chickens would peck away until no more ants? I saw an ant in my coop and they didnt seem interested yet they chase flies and beetles all over. Perhaps they dont like ants?
