The present broad concern about pesticide residues in agricultural soils stimulated interest in the probability of gross contamination of some urban soils. In agricultural areas insecticide applications to soil are made, in most instances, according to recommendations of qualified extension agriculturists. In contrast, when urban soils are treated for control of pests, such applications are often made by inexperienced users and may involve a wide variety and range of dosages of materials. The study reported here was made to determine the magnitude and distribution of chlorinated hydrocarbon residues in soils of a typical city, Battle Creek, Michigan. During the fall of 1963, turf and cultivated soil samples were collected from the city (about 8 samples from each square mile). These samples were analyzed for residues of chlorinated hydrocarbon insecticides.
