    Pool supply places have it, too. It's used in filters. Cheap, too - a 25# bag is only a few bucks.

    I just keep a statue of the Blessed Virgin in my back yard. It works, too! I've never seen a scorpion around here. Or a cobra.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.

    I use this for spreading DE And other dust based pesticides in the gardern. Works like a champ, but you'd probably want to wear your trend airshield when you use it.
