Well I found it! They say you can find just about anything on the web and I believe now it’s true.
Let’s forget for a moment that it takes the better part of 10 years and millions of dollars to bring a new pest control spray product to the market. Hundreds of thousands of man hours in research, testing, lab work, field tests etc. and in the end there is no guarantee people will buy it. Most medicines are not even so tightly scrutinized.
Some excellent products get shot down by rumors or bad press when a mishap occurs or a rouge exterminator tries to cut corners to save a buck. Others may not deliver fully and slumping sales cause manufacturers to go back to the drawing board. Either way the products you buy today or have a professional place for you have made it through all these hoops and if nothing else you can rest assured that some modicum of diligence was put into developing the product.
Alas, fear not, some people have figured out how to ‘create’ their own powerful insecticide and want to share it with you. I doubt they have put much in the way of research into it and yes they have filled their blog post with ‘caution’ words and be careful speak and they even have the good reasoning behind them in saying, “you’ll save money.”
I actually have half a mind not to link it at all but since I’ve gone this far, here you are. Your homemade insecticide awaits.
For those of you who may wish to try this I’ll ask you, do you make your own gasoline? How about mixing your own alcohol? While we’re at it let’s make some rat bait in between homemade bullets. Can you do this? Sure, but it’s not a good idea whatsoever and I only share this with you to illustrate a point.
Bad things happen when one does not know the ins and outs of creating such a mixture. Nicotine is a very powerful insecticide and should be handled by those who have the equipment, training and the resources to get it right. If these folks want to tell you it can be done in your cooking pot that you’ll later use to make chili then I say they are whack!
Be safe, save your hard earned dollars as much as you can but not at the risk of you or someone you love.
