Recommended Posts

anyone know how one can effectively and in high concentrations extract the Ricin from Castor beans for use in a spray? I grow the plants, and am fully aware of the dangers of it. I am also fully capable on handling it. i am wanting to test it as an ant pesticide. any pointers?

 

it needs to be fluid and able to pass through a sprayer.

No offense, but this is one of the craziest ideas I've ever heard. Just because you grow the plants does not mean you are capable of handling ricin (unless your a professional chemist by trade).

 

Also, I don't know what the laws are where you live, but in the US, manufacturing ricin can get you lief in prison, and I'm sure there are rules against discussing how to make it.

 

Just like in the chemistry forums "no bombs allowed". Please don't discuss anything that could implicate Hypography from a legal standpoint.
