    Where do I find foodgrade DE? Is this something that can be bought in stores or does it have to be ordered online? And....lol.....how the heck do you pronounce the D part of DE? I've *never* been able to pronounce that word!

    You can buy it online at country side natural products.com- my understanding is that site is the least expensive pricewise. DE- die..uh..toe..may..shush earth, ( I hope) lol.

  4. You can try listing the state and locals may chime in with help. I posted earlier about finding it here in Middle TN for 23.50. Or do a search on this board or google for it, just type Diatomaceous Earth and your area. I imagine shipping 50 lbs is expensive and would try to find it locally. Maybe ask at feed stores. You may just get lucky. Good luck!
