Is it ok to use peat moss in a dust bath area? Or is there something better to use?
Don't know, never heard of someone doing that. Wood ash and diatomaceous earth are two good things to use in dustbathing areas though. I used lime everywhere they walk, dustbathing areas or not, and that never seemed to do any harm and is known to kill parasite eggs, so that's another option. Some kinds of wood ash though can be very caustic so best to use something not known to burn.
Yes you can use peat moss. I mix it with sand, DE, and ash. They love it
