NO - NOT the swimming pool supply store stuff. Garg, that form of diatomaceous earth is not pure and is dangerous. There is feed-grade diatomaceous earth (it is fed to cows, horses, even people) available in feed stores that can be used for pest control. NEVER use the pool stuff, it has a lot of silica that can easily be airborne and cause serious problems.
