When the chickens are locked up at night and no longer free ranging and hunting the bugs in the grass and shrubs, we have 4 bats that come out and hunt the moths, mosquitoes and flying ants all night. I also hear an owl but haven't see. It.
And, our boy cat has become a good hunter and is killing chipmunks and mice. We had started to hear nice sounds in the cieling but since our cat has become a hunter I haven't heard anymore noises!
So now I just need to figure out how to get rid of weeds easily and naturally without pulling them myself! Lol
But those chickens I tell ya....they more than earn their keep! They lay eggs every day, they eat all the bugs, we put their pool in the compost which is supposed to be the best and they love going down to the compost like and scratching around...so they even airate it for us! They also keep my kids entertained, and my toddler just walks around the yard with them...they eat all our chicken scraps so I never feel like anything goes to waste. Seriously.... They are awesome!!!
