Do you know any Irish suppliers of the natural insecticide “diatomaceous earth” ?

Diatomaceous earth is the remains of the silica shells of tiny prehistoric marine animals. It acts as a dessiccant on insects when dry but does not work if wet.

Suppiers not known off-hand, but try Mr Middleton or Fruit Hill Farm, both of which carry natural pest remedies.
