My rooster has been having scabs on his comb for some time now. Ive checked him for mites during the day but decided to check at night for those pesky critters. I go outside with a flash light in hand to check on them and lock them up when i come across a huge swarm of mosquitoes in the coop!! I got totally freaked out so i decide to kill as many as i could and the first one i squished left a bright red line of blood. I've been closing them up pretty late (around 12 in the morning) and ive never taken a flashlight until now, no wonder i never noticed them. Could these little pest be the cause of the scabs on my little roo? Are there any health risks that could be a problem? Should i be out there right now smushing every last one of them?
