Mosquitoes have been a huge issue in our yard and around the coop. We went to Come See Come Save the other day and bought Grandpas Diatomaceous. We sprinkled it all around the coop and in the nesting area… I will let you know how it works. Here’s a valid link to save $2 right now:

We also use Doterra essential oils for everything! So here are the oils we are using for bug/insect control:

We are not applying oils directly to the chickens; however, we have created a spray. Feel free to message us for more details. The spray works amazing to keep mosquitos off of the chickens, the powder works great to keep away from the coop area. We are also going to plant marigolds and herbs for a more natural repellent.
