Chasing DDT

STORY BY: Peggy Dupuy
YEAR: 1964
LOCATION: Winnipeg, MB

Peggy shares a story about DDT. When she was growing up in Winnipeg, the first kid that knew the DDT truck was coming would call out to everyone on her street. They would then chase the truck to get covered in the DDT fog, which kept mosquitoes away for the night. Thanks for sharing, Peggy.
