    Abstract

    A new pediculicide application system for human mass delousing has been developed by the U.S. Army Biomedical Research and Development Laboratory. This light-weight system is capable of operating either on its own air supply or any other available air supply greater than 4 scfm. Compliance with pediculicide label requirements is now possible through the use of newly designed guns.
