I had a hard time deciding which forum to post this in, so my apologies if it's better suited elsewhere. We are overrun with giant mosquitoes right now. I mean, we walk outside and like 50 land on each person/animal available. I'm wiping down the dogs with mosquito spray just so they can focus long enough to potty. I'm reapplying on myself like every 30 mins it feels like Anyway. I picked up some mosquito dunks to put in our derelict pond. I should have done this weeks ago, but I digress. We have a creek nearby that's also a source of water so we still do battle, regardless of the pond. Naturally, there are mosquitoes in the coop. I picked up some permethrin concentrate today along with a spray bottle to dilute. My thoughts are to spray down the back wall of the coop (hoop coop), their roost, and the inside of the nest boxes (and add fresh bedding afterwards). My concern is with over spray and the deep litter on the coop floor. On one hand, I'm sure the mosquitoes are hanging out in the bedding too and over spray shouldnt be a bad thing, but what about the other good things living in the bedding? At what point will using the spray be detrimental to the litter? I'm also looking at getting a bug zapper to set far away from the coop (the flowtrons suggest 25ft at a minimum because it draws the bugs to it and reviews confirmed). They're that bad that I just want to do all the things to be rid of them!
