    I hate ants![​IMG] They have made a huge colony in the dirt under my coop. They eat all the food my chickens spill, so they are living the high life right now. Every time I throw a treat in the coop for the chickens like a piece of fruit, it is covered in ants after like five or ten minutes. Is there any way I can kill them? My chickens don't eat ants, so I don't know what to do. I don't what to hurt my chickens with ant poison. Any suggestions?

    Where can I buy that? At a feed store only or is it available elsewhere (like walmart)?
