I am going to put down some DE for pest control - more of a precautionary move rather than treating a problem.

I have a few questions - does it matter if I get the Food grade kind or the pool kind, as long as I am careful (goggles, breathing mask, gloves) when putting it down?

If I need the food grade kind, where can I find it in Vegas?

Thanks!

I know I can buy it online. The question was if I need the food grade and if so where I can go in Las Vegas to buy it.

Default Diatomaceous earth in Las Vegas

I know that this was posted several years ago. But I ended up here in my search, and I see that it has gotten several thousand hits, so I think there must be a need. Anyway, I was irritated that Star Nursery isn't open on Sundays and neither is Jones Feed, two places I planned to shop for diatomaceous earth. I stopped in at my local feed store and not only did they carry food grade D.E., the price was only a fraction of what I paid on line a few years ago. A fifty lb. bag was under $20. The store is V & V Feed. They have a store on Rancho, north of Gowan and another somewhere further to the northwest.

Home Depot carries the food grade version, which is what you need.
