    I was just wondering where I can buy food grade diatomatoius earth ? I have seen a few websites, but it doesn't seem like any local stores sell it. Does anyone know of any stores that sell it or do I have to order it online?

    Thank you for your help! [​IMG]

    Your local feed store should have 'pet' food grade.... ok for pets but not for human consumption.

    Poulets- I have looked at the 3 local feed store's online website and according their websites, there is no diatomaceous earth. I will probably just have to go to each one and each in person. What feed stores do you use to buy it?

    Sundance- Thank you for the info! I will have to send dawn a PM.

    If you're feed store is anything like my feedstore, you shouldn't depend on the website.... Farmer Joe doesn't exactly have that much time to put down the feed sacks and update the website.

    Have you got a fleet farm where you live? Ours sells it here. I however get mine from a different feed mill... $26 for a 50 lb bag
