    It's lubber time again here in Florida. Are they safe for the girls to eat? Is there a safe pesticide to use that will effectively kill these stupid things before they kill everything else?

    I noticed them today in the coop, a spider that has taken up residence in one of the corners has been trapping some! But they aren't little for long. Its just not realistic that I can spend hours every day stomping and drowning these awful things.

    If you are unaware of what a lubber is, this is them: [​IMG]

    They pop up by the thousands and eat everything in sight. Oh, and they have stupid pink wings that lets them fly. HATE. /end rant.

    Any help would be much appreciated.
