||Th toxicological properties of DDT have been studied thoroughly. Volunteers have ingested 35 mg. of DDT per day for 18 months, and occupational exposure of this magnitude can occur for as long as six and one half years with no apparent ill effects. Since the exposure of the spray operators and particularly the general public to this insecticide will be much less than the above amounts, it is anticipated that there will be no difficulties due to exposure to DDT during the program to control Dutch elm disease.
