Abstract : The efficacy of dibenz (b,f)-l ,4-oxazepine (CR), a potent sensory irritant and deltamethrin a well-known insecticide, in providing protection to the multi-element nylon tapes, used as aircraft arresters at airports have been evaluated. The results obtained indicate that 5 per cent CR-admixed UV resistant nylon tapes got adequate protection against attacks from wild type laboratory bred Rattus rattus for up to 160 days. CR treatment was found to be water wash resistant against 7, 30 and 60 days protection offered by 3, 4 and 5 per cent deltamethrin, respectively.
