Hi all! I'm the newest member of our little farm and have taken over most of our chicken activities. Being a newb, I've been wandering through the various pages and issues that people are having with hopes of being pro active on some things. One of them is diatomaceous earth for pest control. There is a pattern I'm seeing. Some one has a bug problem, some one else suggest DE and some one else calls foul and says it's useless and/or ineffective. I find this curious and want to hear other people's experiences with it. Being organic, that is all we use for our flock and have never had an issue. We've used it to treat active infestations from purchases and as a dewormer. The caveat being it has to be food grade DE, anything else will be at best useless at worst toxic. What are people's experiences good/bad/middling?
