    I had the bright idea to put a light in the hen house today.
    After two hours of darkness, I went to check on the girls.
    The hen house was full of mosquitoes. What should I do?

    My chickens love to eat mosquitoes. Late this summer when the mosquitoes were thick, they would catch them in mid-air. They didn't cause any problems.

    I'm no expert, but that's my experience.
