Vaportape® is a multilayer polyvinylchloride plastic strip that is impregnated with the insecticide dichlorvos. The dichlorvos slowly evaporates from the strips over a period of 3-4 months providing local area fumigation. The strips are designed to kill flying insects such as boll weevils, moths, mosquitoes, and flies. Dichlorvos is restricted for outdoor use only and the tape is the only method for dispensing allowed in the U.S. since 1995.
