    Does anyone know of an online source for purchasing Diatomaceous Earth? Hoeggers has it but it is alittle expensive and the shipping is even more expensive. I can order it through a local hardware store but it is the wrong kind. I need the type that is not for swimming pools but rather the food grade or garden grade. Thank you for you help.....Dennis

    if you are friendly with your local feed store, ask them if they can order it for you. some companies have it, but obviously won't ship unless ordered, and feed stores don't keep it on hand because so many people have no clue what it even is.

    Thank you all for your advice. I went to Milton, VT and picked up 50 lbs. yesterday. Saved alittle on shipping. Also, the Azurestandard.com has pretty inexpensive DE.
    Thanks again and happy goating....Dennis
