    which was effective in laboratory tests for over 16 weeks when applied at the rate of 150 mgm. per square foot of surface.
    " In field tests lindane at 18 mgm. and DDT at 100 mgm. per square foot of surface provided effective control and protection from reinfestation for over 12 weeks and 6 weeks respectively, when the experiments were terminated.".
