Abstract
Contamination of air in homes due to spraying of pesticides is of concern to the public. A pest control strip which kills creeping and crawling insects by contact is one method of reducing the amount of insecticide in the air. Several different insecticides are now available in this form. The manufacturers believe that there is little if any vaporization of these insecticides into the air. This study was designed to determine how much if any insecticide gets into the air of a room with properly applied pest control strips.
