    It's time to get some diatomaceous earth for my girls as well as a little for my bug-ridden chard. I can't seem to get the food grade in my city, so looked on ebay.

    Has anyone ever bought from this seller? s/he has 100% approval rating however ONLY accepts PO or Western Union money orders. That makes me nervous because there's no way to complain if there's a problem except via ebay.

    I got mine from this seller.
    shipped promptly and was well bagged to survive the trip. Maybe they sell 5# bags too ?

    Our local store Worms Way sells it 9.95 for 6 lbs.
     
  8. Try Googling Golden Blend Group. They have good DE. One of their reps has a stall at the flea market in our town so I don't have to pay shipping charges but i paid $20.00 for 5olbs. marrie
