I am thinking about getting fly predators because the flies are getting ridiculous around here. Not really in the coop - but near it. ANNOYING ME! But, I uses DE in the coop and run and am wondering if I get the predators - will they just die since they will be near the DE. Also, will the chickens just eat them while they are out free ranging? Any other options for fly control? I really don't want to get the stinky death traps that I have been reading about since the coop and run are right next to our house and deck. Yuck. Any ideas would be awesome!
