Abstract

IN my article published in NATURE of June 27 (p. 720) on “Biological Assay of Insecticidal Sprays”, it was stated that a solution of pyrocatechol in ether was recommended as a stabilizer for the standard pyrethrum spray. It must be pointed out that this statement should apply only to a pyrethrum solution used as a standard for comparison in laboratory tests.
