DDT is banned in Finland

The Finnish Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry has recently decided to totally ban as from 1.1.1977 the use of any pesticide containing DDT.

Thus, the use of DDT already restricted to the Hylobius abietis control in nurseries of forest trees, will be completely phased out.
