    I am not sure if this is the right place to put this post, mods please move it if it needs moved....

    I have looked at all the feed stores in my area for DE and none of them had it and really not many of them even knew what I was talking about. However, one lady at one of the feed stores suggested I call the local plant nursery. I did and they carry it, so if you can't find it, this might be a place for you to look. It is food grade.

    Just wanted to pass this on, I didn't want to pay shipping and now I don't have to. I am happy!

    Be careful! A lot of DE on the market used for gardening may be food grade with additives i.e. perethrins (sp) - seen a few of them.

    Okay, thank you for the tip, does it just need to be plain DE. Will it list the extra indregients in it?
