This public health field worker was photographed, while in the process of spraying mosquito control insecticide throughout an urban setting, using a self-contained hand spraying device, which disseminated a cloud of gaseous chemicals into a mosquito occupied environment. In this case, the insecticide was more appropriately categorized as a larvicide, consisting of a DDT emulsion, which was delivered at a quantity of 0.5lbs per acre. The region was a seepage area, that was located adjacent to an irrigation ditch in Salt Lake City, Utah, in May 1959.
