Manufacturers Worry DDT Will Not Be Used

Scientific American

“Release of DDT to civilians for general use recently led to a flood of preparations presumably containing this highly effective insecticide but actually too dilute to be useful. Fear is expressed legitimate insecticide producers that unfortunate experiences with improper DDT preparations made unscrupulous persons may prevent its legitimate later use for valuable purposes.”


Scientific American, November 1945
