    What can I do to repell them? They stick to the walls in the corners. I have two small fans blowing most of the day, but I'm not sure what else I can do. There's no water in the coop for them to breed in. Can I hang citronella scented repellents?

    This is what we did. We put patio screen on the inside of all windows and vent holes and we close the pop door at night. This helps a lot.

    Yeah, it seems that a lot of people do. But I have a chain link 10x10 dog kennel coop. 1 full side is covered with tin, and two half sides are covered. The rest is open.
