           MEMORANDUM FOR SEE DISTRIBUTION




           SUBJECT: Use of Insecticides in VII Corps Units






           1. Commanders are reminded that the use of unapproved
           insecticides in and around troop living areas is strongly
           discouraged.



           2. Malathion, parathion, and many locally procured insecticides
           are carbamate or organophosphate compounds. These compounds kill
           insects by the same mechanism that causes human injury from
           chemical warfare nerve agents. Soldiers who have had enough
           exposure to these insecticides may die or put themselves'at
           increased risk a+ severe injury or death after nerve agent
           exposure.

           3. Unit preventive medicine personnel/field sanitation teams are
           qualified to safely handle and use insecticides. They should be
           consulted when insecticide use is contemplated.

           4. VII Corps POC is CW3 Ginnett, TASS 7720-442.
