I hope you are joking.

If you look at the number of nuclear bombs exploded during the cold war, which needed neutron sources, at least then 
Po-Be sources, you can imagine how much ground would have been needed to be dug up to satisfy the demand.
Production in a reactor is far easier and especially cheaper. It is not known either that all static eliminators were confiscated to scatch away the Po-210.

Best agards.
