SLA spray

While searching the archives for the collection at Mount Vernon I
came across some notes about insects attack.  It appears that many
years ago artifacts used to be sprayed with an insecticide called
'SLA.SPRAY' as a preventive measure against pest infestation. Has
anyone ever heard of this insecticide?  Any information would be
greatly appreciated.
