The main purpose of this program was to develop a warning system which would alert individuals against premature reentry into areas treated with organophosphate and carbamate pesticides. The design of the study was such that the disappearance times of the pesticides and odor agents (as well as visual agents) were determined under laboratory climatic conditions and for at least two different temperatures outdoors. The tests were designed to evaluate different sensory agents rather than to test one with varying climatic conditions. The three insecticides involved in this program were methyl parathion, carbofuran, and azinphosmethyl. The first quarter of the program was devoted to literature searching and generating experimental approaches. Second, third and fourth quarters were almost exclusively devoted to experimental work, although some literature searching and studying were required throughout the program for the purposes of guidance and evaluation.
