    Anybody know where you can buy cheap DE? I buy it directly from the company, but it costs more to ship it then the actual DE! My girls get mites & I dust them 1x monthly & keeps everything under control. Also put it in their feed to control worms. wonderful stuff!

    News flash:
    The EPA apparently has recalled or placed a no sell order on several manufacturers of DE.

    We sell DE in our store and had gotten news of this from our sales rep so we bought extra extra supplies of pure DE. Apparently the EPA does not like a pure "food grade" label.

    In the last 6 months the EPA has put a stop sell on several over the counter organic products that we sell.

    You should ask your local garden center. They should be able to order it for you. If its available...

    I got my Red Lake DE, which is "FEED" grade DE, from one of my local feed stores. $17.00 for a 40lb bag. They did have to order it.
