    Just bought some today after a week of online research [​IMG] Anyway, for anyone with firsthand experience, how much do you use, and how often? It was really expensive ($25 for 5kg) ... at least, by my standards. I was thinking of using it on my broodies and in non-well ventilated areas which I will not be using cedar chips [​IMG] Thanks

    For those in the states, the OP is talking about what we call DE.

    Make sure it is food grade as in you can eat it yourself, else it is more harmful to your lungs and general well being.

    Wear a mask and don't breathe it in, as any particulate matter over time isn't good for you.
