Protection of Keratinous Materials with Synthetic Pyrethroid Insecticides

Abstract

Deterioration of wool by insects dates back to antiquity. It is unusual to find woolen textiles at prehistoric sites. Woolen items are rarely found at archeological sites because wool is so prone to deterioration by insects and microorganisms. Conversely, fabrics like linen have survived from times more remote because it is not susceptible to insect and/or other deterioration.
