Anyone know a place to buy this near the Ellsworth area? We used to buy it in Texas but dont know a source here.

We have a terrible flea problem from the next door neighbors cats, this is a nice non-toxic way to rid them.

If anyone has any info that would be very helpful. Thank you.

Call your local hardware store, they may have it. You can order it online if you can't find it local.

I bought one this summer at AGWAY, gardenning goods/flower shop in Arundel. I think you have a few branches in Ellsworth, too.

lowes carries it, but i find that for fleas, borax works just as good and is cheaper. sprinkle it on the carpets, brush it in, let it sit, then vaccuum uo the rest.

If you are looking to feed the DE to your animals, make sure you are feeding Food Grade, and not the pool filter stuff. The pool filter stuff has been treated in such a way that it is actually toxic to animals and humans if ingested. Food grade DE is available online, pretty inexpensive.
