    Chris Baptista of the Arizona Dept of Agriculture Insect
    Collection would like information on use of Paradichlorobenzene
    in insect collections. He has been using it, but is now aware of
    OSHA concerns/restrictions, and is interested in knowing what
    other collections have been doing about these concerns. Are you
    still using it? What are the pros and cons of vapona and
    naphthalene? Arizona has considerable problems with dermestids
    and other insect pests. What can you tell him about OSHA
    requirements; health and safety; efficacy? Chris is not
    internet-connected, but he has an email address:
    cbaptista [at] sal1__ah__state__az__us

    His phone number is 602-253-1920. Please respond to him

    K. Elaine Hoagland
    Exec. Director
    Association of Systematics Collections.
