    We bought ours at Tractor Supply. Go to the search area and type in DE, you will be able to find uses for it there. good luck..

    yes, tractor supply. If you get it from
    there, it will be food grade.

    I use it everytime I scoop poop and tidy
    the run, especially after a good rain. I have
    not had to use it (dust) the birds.

    Quote:DE does nothing when wet, so forget about worming. In fact, I find DE totally useless and a total waste of money. Anyone that sings the praises of DE has never had an infestation, large or small and unless someone can convince me otherwise, I would say they have never had to deal with any external parasite. Don`t waste your money.......Pop
