On the basis of experimental data, the authors present a group of parameters for the purpose of unification of comparative evaluation of the insecticidal effect of preparations in aerosol containers designed for combatting flying and non-flying domestic insects. The advisability of evaluation of the effect of the preparations for combatting flying insects according to the concentration of insecticides ensuring death of flies in the course of 15 min and the corresponding expenditure of the mixture has been substantiated. Preparations designed for combatting non-flying insects should be evaluated according to the coefficients of acute action, ovicidal and residual effects. To facilitate analysis and evaluation of the preparations in aerosol containers, the authors propose their classification according to the parameters of the insecticidal effect. Classification of the preparations under study according to their parameters is presented. It has been demonstrated that compositions containing pyrethroids and their mixtures with DDVP--Neofos, Neofos-2 and Pif-Paf are the most efficient.
