    Does anyone use the diatomaceous earth with added calcium from tractor supply? How do you use it? Will it keep flies away?
    I just read online that you need non-calcium to use for bugs and mites?

    I have mixed it in with dirt and some ashes for the chicks to fluff around in. Not really sure if it will keep flies and bugs off though.
