    No...neither of those will work. To use DE it MUST say FOOD GRADE. Both of the links u posted did not say it was food grade. Do another search for DE and include food grade in the search and u should find the correct stuff! Good luck! [​IMG]

    Neither. You want it to say food grade DE. I wouldn't trust either of those.

  5. Did you check with your feed store? I'm lucky enough that mine sells the Codex Food Grade DE in 50# bags.
    No shipping charges.

    I get mine from the local garden center/nursery. They had the regular kind, but when I asked, they were happy to order food grade in for me.
