A place that sells Kaolin Clay?

Hello fellow Texans,

Does anyone know where I can buy kaolin clay in the DFW area (preferrably mid-cities/FTW)??? It was highly recommended elsewhere on GardenWeb but I can't find a local retailer. (Its available online but the shipping is hefty.)

I particularly need it for the spotted cucumber beetles!!! My plants aren't showing signs of distress yet but those little boogers are everywhere in the garden! Please help!

Sorry all . . . I meant to post this in Texas Gardening . . . but if anyone here can help, I'd appreciate it as well! Thanks. --Amber

Try a local ceramics supply store. Kaolin is used in the production of porcelain and should be available there.

Look for a product named Surround. It's kaolin based and meant to be mixed in water and sprayed. I'd avoid generic kaolin. You'd not have any idea how much to mix.

Thank you both. I'll probably just order the Surround WP from online. Looks like there isn't anyone around here that sells it :(
