How to synthesize Spider Venom(s)?
Was reading an interesting article about using spider venoms as non-toxic pesticides. I want to test a natural pesticide/plant growth enhancer using a mixture of chitin/chitosan and spider venoms. Getting chitin is the easy part, but does anyone know how to synthesize spider venoms? Crudely attempting to "milk" spiders is not an option. Chitin/Chitosan has numerous biocontrol applications (tested by NASA) and I'm trying to develop safer pesticides so that agriculture doesn't need to use sketchy things like glyphosate or atrazine for example.
