Vw not had a fly problem with my coop or run until today. Granted its triple digits today but I put up two disposable fly traps in the run, but I'm not sure what to do for the coop. I clean both everyday, but still, the flies are there. I also found a few ants in the coop. Would DE help with these issues? How do you remedy flies? Thanks!

Fly bomb or fly spray during the day, lock the girls outside.

Flies seem better today, the traps are doing their jobs, but I will get some DE for the ant issue. There aren't many but there must be a strawberry or something yummy buried in the sand. Thanks all so much, of this doesn't work, I'll try some sprays.

I found this idea on Pinterest.... And it worked for us..... Plastic sandwich bag fill with water and add a few shiny pennies ... Hang these around the coop/pen in the sun! It seems to work for us around the duck pen. I also saw it at an ice cream place and they said it was working for them too!
