Thanks Gaspedlar,

Interesting article. I was familiar with DDT, but was wondering what the labling would be. Was it an all purpose use? Was wondering what the large type that's not quite legible--what would the manufacturers put down to catch the attention of the consumer? Touted for house and garden?

BTW DDT was very effective and eliminated bedbugs in the U.S. and would have been dusted on mattresses.
