Re: DE


Well one would THINK that it would be easy to find at a feed store or
gardening center. But it's OKLAHOMA...and when I asked them (went to ag
centers, feed stores, gardening centers) they looked at me and said,
"HUH?" I explained to them what it was and they tried to sell me Seven
Dust at one place, and some other stuff for cattle that had insecticide
in it. So, I just looked online. Without trashing the state I live in
(and I was born here and my parents and grandparents were born here),
Oklahoma is not exactly up on things. No recycle programs where I
live..maybe in OKC but not here, organic is a foreign concept to most
people here, I still see hairstyles from the 70's, fashion is behind and
so is the music. I can say that honestly because I have also lived in
Atlanta, Dallas, Kansas City and New Orleans....there are days where I
wondered what in the HELL I was thinking by moving back here. For true.

Jesse,
Nitron has lots of good products. I would think though that one could get
DE locally - say at a feed store or ag co-op.
