Tests were conducted to compare the chemical persistence of Baygon® (o-isopropoxyphenyl methylcarbamate) formulated as a 1% oil spray, 13.9% spray concentrate, and as a 75% wettable powder with its residual effectiveness against the house fly, Musca domestica L. House fly bioassay of plywood panels treated at 100 mg/square foot indicated a half-life of approximately 4 days; colorimetric analysis showed that the actual half-life of Baygon was almost 15 days. The lack of residual effectiveness appeared to be caused by a loss of the formulating materials necessary for transfer of the toxicant from the treated surface to the house fly. Maximum mortality. with minimum exposure time, was obtained with Baygon formulated as a 1% oil spray.
