Insecticide bombs that are lit with fire?(3 posts)
In the early 1970's, I knew somebody living in a Park Slope (Brooklyn) brownstone, who called an exterminator because of a major roach problem. When questioned about the effectiveness of his treatment, the man said that it would kill "every #%&#@!$ thing that breathes". He then set off several bombs which had fuses and were ignited with a cigarette lighter (or matches). The home had to be evacuated for a period of time, but when the people came back everything was dead, just as promised. Does anybody have any idea what this formulation, that had to be burned, might have been?
I'd ask the PCOs at thebedbugresource.com.
While probably interesting, that's probably not a via avenue these days. Fire is dangerous and pesticides can only be applied in a controlled manner by a PCO.
