Re: [Killietalk] Newbie
We live about 30 minutes from the actaul diatomous earth mine. it's
everywhere around there. I could get a bucket ful if I could figure out if
they process it first or if they just crush it and bag it . I beleive they
call it Dolimite.
Any hyelp on the use would be helpful. If it's as easy as putting it in a
bag and dropping in the filter then I could send this stuff to anyone. My
donation to the cause. Anyone know what to do with it after it's packaged
?Thanks again, mark
