    Does anyone know where I can find some food grade DE in the Houston are? The feed stores I have tried on the west side don't carry it.
     
  2. I buy mine from Golden Blend Group. Google them and see if they have a rep in the area. Be sure its Food Grade. marrie

    Doesn't look like they have any dealers in this area.

    Hi!! I could not find a local source where I live in MI, so I ordered from earth works health. They were very fast in shipping and prices were reasonable.

    I think what Lowe's carries in the organic gardening section is food grade.

    If you can't locate it at feed stores, try your local garden nurseries, Especially the mom/pop type, That is where I found mine here in Brownwood. Just make sure it is food grade. Mine was and I was surprised to locate it there.
