When I was in my early teens and helping out on my mate's dad's farm there was a sprayer to kill flies called 'flit' and it did what it said on the tin. The 'elf and safety' morons banned it in the late 60's and now the shelves are full of products called 'Vapona' 'Raid' and all sorts of useless concoctions - I suppose the E.U. have been poking their noses in like they have with light bulbs and vacuum cleaners, and expecting us to buy useless crap as always!!
