Porous surfaces such as brick, cement, ceramic (unglazed) etc absorb the spray, and hence more spray is needed to deliver the required surface deposit. Spray into cracks, crevices and other insect harbourages.
Situation: Repellent treatment of fabric (excluding clothing) and mosquito nets.
(ii) Cotton and cotton blends.
Pests: Mosquitoes, biting flies.
