Backyard Chickens For Pest Control

Jennifer Smith

Posted on May 07 2019

Backyard chickens are great to have for a number of reasons. Not only do free-roaming chickens help to produce great tasting cakes for bakers, but they get along great with other pets in the yard. And, they offer another benefit to homeowners: pest control.

Not only do backyard chickens kill snakes, moles and mice, but they eat grubs, worms and even ticks! Chickens will pick out ticks hiding in the grass, thus protecting our family members and pets from potential tick infections. 

Since spring and summer are prime seasons for tick bites, owning backyard chickens is a great solution for tick management.
