Several years ago the roaches and flies had gotten so bad at one of our local Waffel Houses that I suggested to management that if they would buy a dozen bantam chickens and turn them loose in the place, that they, (the chckens) would clean out the bugs  /WorkArea/threadeddisc/emoticons/shocked.png  wow that went over like a lead balloon, BUT they did get an exterminator and he finally cleared up their problem. I mean this was BAD. I even told them that I would buy the chickens for them and that I would stay away for a month or so until they could do their job. /WorkArea/threadeddisc/emoticons/shocked.png  My suggestion was still not met with much favor. I have to say that they did finally take care of the problem, They burned the place to the ground, (the grease in the wall caught fire) and they put up a new and larger place. So far, no bug problems. I guess just set fire to a place to clean up one way or the other. /WorkArea/threadeddisc/emoticons/biggrin.png 

Chickens are great buggers though and they will scratch around and find em all.  I guess keeping them out of eating places is a better idea. Although I would tolerate the chickens better than the crawlies.
