    another question...

    anyone in toronto had success in finding DDVP strips? i don't even know if this stuff is sold in canada or what trade names are used. i've looked in canadian tire, home hardware, zeller's, walmart, etc. without success.

    anyone know where to get it?

    also, is it damaging to plastics?

    Try asking Sean Rollo on the BedbugResource.com

    Sean is based in Canada and should be able to advise you on DDVPs status.

    I think Hot Shot No Pest Strips are one OTC trade name, but I am not sure if they are still available on the Canadian market.

    Damage tends to be dose and exposure related... Ask the manufacturer for guidance about interaction with different plastics and the correct dose.

    Be sure to avoid any prolonged contact with the fumes... Avoid using Dichlorvos in an occupied space... follow the label.

    Ortho sells dichlorvos strips under the name "Home Defence" - I picked one up at Home Depot

    Home Defense Max Strips at Home Depot... they are made for barns/sheds, so if you are using them for bins/bags, you will likely have to cut the one large strip into smaller pieces... read the label as to how many square feet the strip treats and go from there...
