    Can someone recommend where I can get food grade DE in Canada, specifically Ontario?

    Ontario Growers has it but it's $65 for a 50lb. bag, which is ridiculous. I was thinking of going across the border to get some (no retailers here in WNY except one who won't have it for another 2 weeks), but decided to wait. My retailer sells it for $20.50. That's a HUGE difference.

    What should a bag cost, roughly?

    My retailer, when he has the 50lb. bags, sells it for $20.50. I'd be willing to pay as much as $30. I think $65, picking it up yourself, no shipping involved, is insane. Why do they do that???

    Interesting. I don't know why the mark ups are so different from place to place. The only thing I can think of is that it's not all that available so they're able to price it as they wish...little competition will do that. After all, something is only worth what someone will pay. So obviously someone is buying it up at that outrageous price.
