Wondering if it matters whether I use food grade or regular DE for pest control in my coop, yard, and nesting boxes. And if it matters, why? Thanks in advance for any advice you may have for me...

Read the labels. Contents in Regular are for Swimming Pools, etc. NOT for eating. Chickens eat lots of stuff in their coops, yards--and chemicals in the Regular are NOT recommended as a chicken feed additive! Good luck.
