    Did you do a search? There are some threads on BYC on where you can purchase Food Grade DE.

    Find a locally owned pet supply, farm supply, greenhouse, co-op and they can order it. For some reason D.E. is summer seasonal here, butt no problem ordering, when shopping in the non-chain store world, if there is some left where you are.
