I have a hand-held (not tractor mounted) Village Blacksmith Blitz Fogger from the early '70s.

 

My guess is that the answer to this question is "no" ... but does anyone know of an insecticide that can still be used in the Blitz Fogger, either hand-held or tractor mounted?

 

The instructions for this unit state that "Riddex Mosquito Fog" or Blitz Fog "Thermalized" insecticide should be used. The instructions also state that "Using other than recommended Blitz Fog insecticide may cause clogging and corroding of fogger assembly."

 

A Google search does not reveal any alternative products, just wondering if others have attempted to find an alternative and use their fogger.

 

Thanks in advance for any help provided!

Welcome to the forum. I moved your post over here to help get more exposure than it would in the site sponor's forum.

Nice find!

Unfortunately I would say that any of the effective or useful products to run in your fogger are now outlawed by the EPA :(

Thanks guys! I'm afraid I'm not going to find any pesticide to run in this fogger, but I'll keep looking.

 

Interesting statement in the PAN pesticide database. The reason for the cancellation of the product registration for Blitz Fogger in 1989 was "Maint. fee non-payment". Meaning, I assume, that the product was withdrawn from the market because the makers of the pesticide just let the registration lapse and didn't pay the fee, not necessarily because the product was found to be harmful.

 

Note also that the only content that was "possibly" carcinogenic was Tetramethrin. Hmm ... I wonder if I could formulate my own blitz fogger solution?  :smilewink:

I bet some cheap cologne from Wal-Mart would do it.

Turns out you can buy Black Flag fogging insecticide, and foggers, on Amazon.com. But the sellers won't ship the insecticide to Ontario because of our strict anti-pesticide laws. If you squash a bug with your thumb in Ontario, chances are you've committed a crime.
