cedar still


Wonder what we would get if we made a cedar still to distill cedar shavings? A bug spray maybe?

Any comments on this idea?
Not that I would know anything about a still. I'm just a dumb ol' Alabama boy wanting a safe pest deterent.

Ok, maybe I have seen one ( big enough to walk on) and know a little about the construction of one. This was many years ago.

I don't know what you would end up with either---Try corn mash in the still.

Use tobacco tea with a couple of drops of detergent to kill the bugs.

LOL! Almost sounds like a plan, but mash stinks, and I would be afraid the tea would stain walls.
