I've been reading the discussions on DE as to if it's effective as an insecticide or not. As in all things there are different opinions out there. The consensus seems to be that it is helpful. My goal is to keep insects and smell to a minimum. I like the fact that the food grade DE is natural but I'm not opposed to dropping a chemical bomb on the insect if necessary. I saw one mention of using lime in the coop and run to fight smells. I assume it doesn't affect bugs tho. Many people out there use lime? What type of chemicals do people use for insects?
