Abstract:The authors have reported (1953 a, b, c) that the residual effectiveness of relatively volatile chlorinated hydrocarbon insecticides such as lindane, aldrin, and heptachlor can be increased by the addition of an isomeric mixture of chlorinated terphenyls, and have described suitable methods of applying these mixtures (1954, 1955). In this paper mixtures of chlorinated terphenyls and several volatile organic phosphorus insecticides are evaluated for their residual effectiveness.
