Despite the policy of cleanliness throughout Victorian houses there were few that were not plagued with an insect infestation of some sort, from beetles and flies to cockroaches and fleas. Soaps and disinfectants were not effective in killing these insects and so special insect powders like the one advertised on this leaflet were sold in grocer’s stores across the country.
