Diatomaceous Earth in veggie garden?
I'm a first time poster to this forum. Just recently joined gardenweb.
I use DE in my hosta beds to keep the dreaded slugs at bay. I also braodcast it in the yard for fleas.
I have planted my first vegetable garden this year (I know nothing about veggie or organic gardening. Getting lots of good info from this site.) I was thinking of spreading DE in the garden because fire ants are becoming noticible. Will the DE harm the beneficial critters? On another thread I saw mention of molasses to control fire ants. Where would I find this product, and under what name?
Thanks for your wisdom :)
