    lime is a must with pigs, imo. It will cut down on the smell and the flies. If you have some food grade Diatomaceous earth sprinkle it very sparingly in their pen as well- it will kill any lice and fleas in there. If you add a little tiny bit to their feed you can keep it free from insects and when it goes through their system it will kill fly larvae.
