    I just went down to my coop to tuck in the girls and found a swarm of mosquitos attacking them. The coop is open to the elements -- does anyone have an effective way of riddiing myself of this problem? Thanks.

    check around your property for puddles of water and dump out all water. Even small tiny puddles can harvest mosquitos
