Dichlorvos fumigant strips provide an effective method for protecting insect collections. They are also successful as a fumigant for herbarium specimens and vertebrate study skins. Their use eliminates long term undesirable side effects of PDB and other common fumigants. Because Dichlorvos protects specimens for a longer period of time than crystals, it needs replacing less often and is cost effective.

No-Pest Strips contain DDVP resins extruded in plastic, and are packed in sealed foil packets. Size is 6-1/2 x 2-1/2 x 1/4". Each strip is made to fumigate 900 - 1,200 cubic feet of space and the mfg. recommends that it be replaced every 4 months. One strip can be cut into 65 small pieces, 1/2 x 1/2"(1.2 x 1.2 cm) suitable for drawers or boxes. As a guide, 1010 Cal. Acad. Drawers contain approx. .32 cubic feet and 1012 Cornell drawers contain approx. .39 cubic feet. Although this chemical is used in pet collars and as a hanging strip for household pest control, it should be kept away from the skin and food.
