Hello! So first of all, I have done research and have started with Diatamaceous Earth under bedding and outside in places where they hang out a lot... However, that isn't made for rodents. The guy at the feed store said I could mix it in their food as well but I don't particularly like the idea of glass shards in their food... Thoughts?? I have recently found mice turds all over the coop. It's so irritating however I realize it comes with the territory. Lots I can do I know.. Should I bring the food bin in the house (my house) at night? I've also ordered the pricey but hopefully worth every penny herbal "Nesting Box Blend" from Natural Chicken Keeping. The herbs in there are suppose to ward off insects and rodents. . . spearmint in general should help. So I guess my question is- what can I do in the mean time until I keep the herbs in. Should I set traps high up where I know the birds don't go yet? Also, do you think I can mix the herbs in the food? Hopefully the mice don't fancy it. It kills me to see mice POOP in their food!!! HELP! Thanks again!
