Ok, I know a lot of people are still dealing with snow and haven't seen an insect in weeks but here in SE GA just as soon as the temps begin to creep up the mosquioes swarm out of their hiding and began attacking all that have blood. I can deal with them, I have hands to swat and smash the little boogers but what about my chickens? I know when my grandparents had chickens they would build smokes in the yard to help run the bugs for some relief and I know yes chickens eat bugs but the mosquitoes here are terrible and I feel bad for the flock to have the blood drained out of them so what do you more experienced chicken owners do with this sort of issue. Please help before the mosquitoes come back out. I have spotted a few already with the last few warmer days we have had.
