Much loss and inconvenience is experienced by homemakers each year through insects which have become pests in the home. Few homes in South Dakota have not experienced some damage from clothes moths. Much food has been destroyed or rendered unfit for use by other insects. It has been definitely established that flies and other household pests play an important part in the spread of typhoid fever, dysentery, cholera and other diseases which destroy health and deflate family savings.
