    We have had our chickens 4 months now and now we have little flying bugs everywhere and all the time and they get in the house. they don't bite or seem to bother the chickens, but are annoying and its frustrating any ideas please?

    Try spraying some Permethryn in the housing...... bugs, spiders and flies seem to hate it, whether it is the action of the Permethryn or the smell.. they don't stay around!

    Chestnut oil will deter spiders, it may also deter other bugs... maybe worth a try.
