    Is there a safe way to get rid of stupid boxelder bugs? They are swarming my girls' coop and run. I really want to get rid of them because the girls won't eat them and they're driving me crazy. Any suggestions are appreciated! Thank you!

    Safest way is to ignore them. They will cause no harm and eventually move.
