    I am working on setting up a mail order channel for people to buy DE in 5 and 10 pound packages. Is there any interest out there for me to do this? Being on a fixed income I know how hard it can be to afford such things. Of course I would need to make something on this but I think I will be able to beat most of what I have seen on the net. It would be guaranteed "food grade" and if you dont mind getting it in plastic storage bags it should work out pretty good. It will take me a week or so to set things up and if there is a great demand it might be slow going for awhile but am willing to give it a try if there is enough interest. Please let me know what you think! My coop is half done and waiting for the rain to stop!!!

    Hi All! As close as I can figure what with my cost, gas, time, packaging and shipping, the following is what I have come up with:

    5# - $18.20
    10#- $ 26.45

    These will ship Priority Mail with approximately 2 day delivery time. Brand Name is Perma Guard and I will be adding their web site soon so you can see exactly what the product is. Again, hope to be up and running in about a week and will let you know as soon as I am. Just be patient with me tho!
