    Hi...I was just @ TSC this afternoon looking and inquiring for the same. The wonderful sales clerk told me they don't carry it. He looked it up online and explained what it exactly is. He told me to check a local nursery & garden center before ordering it on line. Fingers & toes crossed. I hope one of the nurseries I have to choose from has it. So check your nurseries before order online!! [​IMG]

    Here's the link to Perma-Guard's distribution map. Click on your state and perhaps you will find some place near you. http://www.perma-guard.com/distributors.html

    Also
    , when you are inquiring of feed stores, some of them know it as "Fossil Shell Flour" and don't always know it as Diatomaceous Earth.

    I either have TSC or Amish/ mennonite feed stores and they tend to keep the essentials. I will ask though the next time I am there. Maybe they could even order me some?

    Thanks for the link. But I found something very odd. Take a look http://perma-guard.com/Dist-NewJersey.html
