    Does anyone use Red Lake Earth? I read that it is suppose to take care of mites, lice, fleas and worms. Just sprinkle in your coop and run once a month and you are good to go.

    I use Red Lake DE out of Canada. Seems to work very well - I sprinkle it on my hen house floor, on the roosting boards, and in the fenced run. I also use another kind - PermaGuard food-grade DE - it's white and I order it online, four 2.5 # plastic jugs at a time. I use that beneath the pine shavings when I have young chicks in the house before I put them outside. I inspect my birds regularly and have found no signs of mites. Bugs really hate that stuff!
