    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method determines the effectiveness of aerosol and pressurized space-spray insecticides against house flies (Musca domestica L) and, with modifications in dosage, other flying insects.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee E35 on Pesticides, Antimicrobials, and Alternative Control Agents, this test method was withdrawn in January 2018 in accordance with section 10.6.3 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method determines the effectiveness of aerosol and pressurized space-spray insecticides against house flies (Musca domestica L) and, with modifications in dosage, other flying insects.

    1.2 The test may be conducted using approximately 100 house flies per test (small group) or 500 flies per test (large group).

    1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

    1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
