Have a look at a product called diatomaceous earth its used in permaculture and is very good for reducing odors, fleas as well as an enormous amount of other good things. Looks just like sand and mixes well.
:) Hearty discussion is the sharing of knowledge = and knowledge is never a bad thing :)

Make sure to buy "food grade" though! I love D.E.- I feed it to everything. I didn't know about the odor control aspect... I'm going to go spray (blow) it onto the bunnyberries now! They'll be pre-seasoned for the garden that way.

I never heard of running manure through a shredder! You mean, like a paper shredder?

Yes, I have food-grade DE. I've used it to treat fur mites, and to reduce flies. :)

The only trouble (if you can call it that) is that worms love it so much it disappers in a hurry but it sure produces a lot of worms.
Lots of people talk to animals.... Not very many listen, though.... That's the problem.

Love what so much? The DE or the bunnyberries?

Miss M I've used it for flies, too. They were roosting in the rafters of the bunnybarn at night, and I used my Dustin-mizer (powder blower) to coat them and the rafters, and within a couple of days they were gone. Our grey mare gets attacked by the little cattle flies, and the DE works far better than fly spray. Hung in a burlap bag in the pasture, livestock will actually self treat themselves by bumping it, but I haven't tried that yet. They'd probably eat the bag! The chickens like to dust bathe in it. I also blast it on any plants that have aphids, but only before they flower because it kills pollinators as well. Mixed with your grain it will kill weevils and moths. Every so often the kids and I will take it for a couple months ourselves, as an internal cleanse.

We had bedbugs one year from the maternal bat colony that nests in our roof (drat them! :) ) and sprinkled it around the bed and along the baseboards, as well as the bat's access to their "grotto" in hopes they'd self treat, and it killed those little bloodsuckers too (bugs, not bats!)... but not before they had a couple of meals from us- well, mostly ME! This year we didn't have any bedbugs, although the bats returned despite the expanding foam Hubs used to keep them out... so I guess it worked for them too!
