Living in the country, we expect some varments who are not welcomed; however, I am quite tired of these mice (and now roaches). We got a couple of kittens (then a wild one showed up starving to death), so our mouse problem is diminishing significantly; however, the roach problem is bad. Nothing I purchase at the stores seem to do much good, just run them off for a short time. Mother told me what she and her mother use to do to rid unwanted pests, i.e. they burned sulfur. So, I called the local feed store and he sold me some "Rattlesnake Brand Sulfur", saying the catalog he used to order it stated it would rid a place of spiders, bugs and even snakes. So we purchased 3 lbs of this powdered stuff ["sulfur(S) .. 90.0% derived from Sulfur"]. Now, I read on the label and it makes no mention of its being used for such purposes. Instead, it only states it is used to lower the ph in soil. Now, I am stumped. Does anyone in here know about using powered sulfur for ridding an area of live pests? Does anyone know about this particular sulfur I just bought? Does anyone know how to use it? (I am thinking we would use it as Mother told me they did, i.e. pour some on a rag and place rag in middle of open area like a room or under the trailer; then set fire to the rag. Apparently the sulfur is suppose to smoke.) I do know to close up the trailer and let it be smoked up for a good 24 hrs; then return and air it all out for a nice length of time before moving ourselves back in. I am concerned about the burning rag being left unattended during this time. Sure hope someone in here can help me with this endeavor.
