Abstract With the DDT ban, effective January 1, 1973, the use of a variety of other chemicals must be increased to substitute for DDT in the control of insects. Replacement chemicals will probably include among others: organophosphates; carbamates; chlorinated hydrocarbons; and botanicals. Chemicals replacing DDT will be less persistent in the environment than DDT. Some replacement chemicals will be more acutely toxic to man and, therefore, will present greater potential hazards. An intensive short-term educational program, Project Safeguard, is underway to train the farmer in the safe use of these replacement chemicals, and this program should minimize the hazards from improper use. The potential still exists, however, for an increased incidence of toxic exposure and resulting clinical illness, in which accurate diagnosis and prompt treatment could mean the difference between life and death.
