Yes DDT the good stuff when you really want insects dead. This can is a bit older than it looks. I found a picture of it in a newspaper from 1952 so I think I can be pretty safe in saying this is from the 1950s. Note ignore the sprayer seen in the first photo , it is just there for decoration, the post is just for the can. The can does have some attractive graphics of dead bugs.
Now of course I bought this can for the DDT, it is empty by the way. DDT is considered a bit naughty as it was said to be affecting wildlife such as birds. But then some blame malaria outbreaks on the ban of DDT. That is just the way things go there are pluses and minuses. Perhaps it worked a little too well.
Now I need to get the Bif Sprayer to go with it.
