    I have been trying to locate some food grade DE to spread on the pine shavings.

    When I ask at the local feed stores they look at me like I have 2 heads.

    Need a recomendation of where to buy. on-line or a walk in store.

    Thanx,

    David

    I found some DE on ebay. I can get a 50lb bag delivered for about $55.00

    Good price? yes/no?

    Thanx,

    There's a place near me that has it for $32.00 a bag, it is the shipping that kills you!
     
  7. google GOLDEN BLEND GROUP and see if they have a rep in your area, I paid $20.00 for 50 lbs, but I picked it up at the flea market since the rep sold food for exotic animals like emos,and other birds. marrie

    I found Golden Blend their website is www.custommilling.com

    With shipping a 50 lb. bag is around $50.00

    I don't think I'm going to find a better price.

    Thanx,
