    I have just read a remedy for ant problems --- cinnamon. We have huge "carpenter-type" ants and occasionally they sting my chickens. (And me). I have heard that cinnamon will get rid of them, but... I need to know if it will hurt my chickens. So far I have found nothing that is useful and not harmful to get rid of these critters. It is a real problem and if you have any suggestions --- please write them to me. thanks.
