Default "How to make your own DDT" sounds hella easy!

http://blog.planetpreterist.com/index.php?itemid=2461

Not idea of what laws a private citizen would be breaking doing this, but I don't think having the chemicals on hand is illegal(could be wrong, Feinstein passed some law about 'ID required for chem lab equip' because she wants foreign gangs to have income from Meth, not American gangs).

Anyways, IIRC, insect parasite outbreaks are common in SHTF situations or even their simulation like OWS encampments, and parasitic bugs are traditionally major disease spreaders. It wasn't the rats, it was the lice(?) on the rats that carried the plague to humans.

Other use would be as farming insecticide (common sense precautions of course).

Once SHTF and services like "Mosquito Abatement" aren't working the blood suckers might rebound with a vengeance.


Unfortunately, the link above doesn't include any info on how you properly apply the raw, pure DDT you've just produced. Anyone got any real data on all that?

Completely false.

It's banned for agricultural use, but still produced and commonly used for vector control, which is exactly what the OP is discussing.

Good luck buying any chemicals from a supply store. They watch those places like a hawk. You would have visitors at 0300 with black masks and machineguns.

reading the anti-science commentary on that site made my IQ drop by about 50 points temporarily. Glad I dont hang with that crowd...


Two things;

1) be careful when playing around with organic chemistry sets: there's a reason why folks who worked with that stuff in the old days generally had short lifespans. Heaven forbid them damn envirowhackos actually have some sound science behind their ideas.

2) if playing around with halogenated hydrocarbons is a good way to die slowly then playing around with another class of pesticides: the organophosphates, is a good way to die real fast and painfully. Chemistry ain't like playing around with electronics or metalworking tools. It is a whole different skill set that can be extraordinarily unforgiving.
