PDZ is Horse Stall Freshner - locally I can get it at Tractor Supply - mix it into wet areas and it dries them out and stops the smells moisture causes.  It is safe if the flock eats some :)

Thank you for the link :) I didn't know tihs

 

This will also help controling the # flies ?

 

Tractor supply company ? i think the closest one for me is 10-15 miles.  I wonder if petco or petsmart or wal-mart will have the same item in stock..

I don't know if PDZ helps with flies - but think it does not.

 

Chicken Poop does attract them.

 

I think most folks use those hang up fly traps?  Do a search in the forums and bet you can find an answer.

I bought 2 fly traps from wal-mart.

 

I used one. It worked well but the smell is even worst than the chicken manure:(  and it attracted even more flies

 

I think it's best to build your own like the site I included above and use chicken manure as bait.

 

I saw they have those mosquitoes netting available. I'm thinking of just wrapping those around coop/run to prevent flies from getting in while still provide ventilation for the coop/run.
