Vapona No Pest Strips....a Dire Warning

Well, summer is here and with it the bugs...each year many people keep those bugs at bay in their homes using hanging "No Pest" strips by Vapona. These strips work by a steady release of dichlorvos into the air....this chemical poison has the unfortunate habit of binding to water...and is toxic to fish. If you have aquariums (or birds, or amphibians), do not use Vapona No Pest strips or any other similar product made from dichlorvos.
