And maybe in the coop. I'm afraid to get close enough to look. What on earth should I do to get rid of these suckers and not hurt the girls? My coop is an Amish Shed type deal, about 4 x 6. The nests that I can see are tucked up between the trim and the roof line. Our pest control company can take care of the nests with some sort of spray that is supposed to be safe for the chickens, but they want almost $500 to do it. My husband wants to spray the nests at dusk with a store bought spray. I'm concerned about the potential for mist from the spray drifting onto the chickens inside the coop, or falling to the ground beside the coop where they scratch. He thinks putting tarps on the ground to catch any drips from from hitting the ground will be enough. I was also thinking of trying to burn the nests with a candle or a plumbers torch, but I'm not sure it could be done without the flame spreading to the coop. I'm also considering moving the hens into the horse barn for a couple days, spraying the heck out of the coop, then washing it down and moving it to a new grassy area to avoid the danger of runoff insecticide. Less than ideal because I have some new hens down there in one stall, but doable. Anyone have any ideas on how to do this safely for the hens and avoid getting myself stung? Help!
