Spray that DDT everywhere!

Aren't you a little sad for all those cartoon bugs?

I actually still have some old DDT in cans that was meant for a pump sprayer. I think it is still used in Africa and Asia as a last resort to combat malaria.
DDE was another variant.

Let's face it, all the bad-mouth and hype about DDT was drummed up by some left-wing, tree-hugging, socialists that despise anything that makes life for the majority of the world better!

How's that Richard?

I loved the part at the end where the guy is dispensing the powder outdoors. The drift is going right back into his face.

Dude is probably long gone from lung cancer since then. Still the DDT was the best to control insect problems.

Considering that the audience is supposed to be bugs, the bouncy music is kind of inappropriate.

Do people actually have insect infestations in pianos?
