I've had my chickens for 18 months now and this is the first time I have had a roach problem. Actually it started a couple of months ago and is now getting out of hand. I use the deep litter method using leaf litter from the woods and it has been working like a charm for over a year now. I recently cleaned out the hen house and put all the litter into my compost pile for next spring's use in the garden. I put in all fresh leaf litter. I seem to have a real roach problem now in the coop. Don't want to spray for obvious reasons...maybe this is normal for North Florida, though I went a long time without this problem til now. Does everyone have this situation?
