Probiotic spray

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Has anyone tried making (and using) probiotic sprays to keep coops cleaner and reduce smell?

 

I've found references to commercial products like Crisal BioMist, but i'd prefer to make my own.

I have never heard of it. With proper ventilation and cleanliness the coop shouldn't smell much at all.

Agreed. I use dry grass clippings and leaves as a pseudo deep litter method, and a quick rake over every day and the only thing i can smell is dried grass.

Do you mean this stuff?  https://chrisalusa.com/pipbiomist/

 

Sounds like bunk to me....'probiotic' is a oft misused marketing term.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

I am very familiar with nanotechnology to effectively reduce AMR (Antimicrobial Resistant Microorganisms) on porous and nonporous surfaces.

 

Quite frankly, it is best applied in a clean environment, such as a hospital, hotel, or office building.

It wouldn't stand a chance in a chicken coop layered, or soon to be layered in poop.

 

As others mentioned, proper ventilation and husbandry will eliminate most concerns naturally. 

 

I am personally fond of filling a spray bottle with:

 

1 tablespoon of peppermint extract

1 teaspoon of dishwashing liquid

3 cups of water

 

I spray liberally whatever, wherever, and fairly often.

 

Effective bug, spider, wasp, rodent... repellent, and smells nice to me :)
