|Abstract:||The effectiveness of solvent-based sprays of 0.025% and 0.05% deltamethrin on wool fabrics stored for 60 months after the treatment has been evaluated against Tinea translucens (the tropical casemaking clothes moth), Anthrenus flavipes (the furniture carpet beetle) and Attagenus fasciatus (the banded carpet beetle). It has been found that spray of 0.025% deltamethrin provides effective protection to the fabrics from the larval feeding of above pest species up to 60 months in store. Deltamethrin residue of 0.025% concentration on fabrics stored for 60 months has been estimated to be 0.011% (on wool weight) which is 62% less than the initial deposit.|
