    We have something of a bug problem here, and I've been asked to
    see if anyone has any information regarding the effects of
    fumigants upon old/rare print material collections.  Is it safe
    for the collection, or can the chemicals destroy sensitive
    materials, etc.?  Our collection of oldest materials are housed
    in our basement level, where little creatures have been
    residing!  Our "officer in charge" had someone do a literature
    search on this topic, but to no avail.  We need to take action
    on this, and I would appreciate hearing from some practical
