How Safe Is Sniper/ Go 90 For Mosquito Control? by kayoday(m): 8:58pm On Jun 09, 2013
Reading the cover on the popular Sniper used by most lagosians for mosquito control, it is clearly written that it is meant for outdoor use and should be mix with water to reduce the concentration.
However most household use for indoor mosquito control on daily basis , though seems effective want to believe there is a residual effect on ones health. I need expert opinion on this. Will get the active composition and post as well

Sniper and go 90 belong to the family of insecticides calld DDVP. It has been banned by WHO n NAFDAC. Stil Nigerians prefer to use it becos most pple think its faster.
Well,let me hint you more on the reasn it was banned. You see,DDVP is a very toxic chemical which reacts very easily with the lungs and kidney just by inhaling them,which is a major cause of cancer. Worst of it,the chemical is designd to be diluted wit water b4 use bt most of us use it raw or dilute with kerosene. It should never be used by a non professional. There are other organic chemicals bt they dnt react so fast wit d human organs as much as DDVP. Note that DDVP is a family name and there lots of brands out there that belong to dat family.
We need to learn to consult professionals b4 we use any chemical because health is wealth o. I am a professional pest control officer and if I were to advice you, I would say go for NEWLION FUMIGATION. You can google it. It has been carefully developed and mixed wit the ryt chemicals in d ryt quantity so it does nt compromise your health. There is no DDVP inside and its affordable.
All the best to u as u seek true knowledge.

there's always a boycott in d Nigerian market. What am saying is nt abt being in d market or nt, bt health related issues wit it. The rate at which pple use such products have increased,no wonder d rate of cancer patients have increased too. Smh... Nigerians love ignorance o.

Mine was worst. I nearly died from this stuff. Went to many hospitals but non could give proper diagnosis of what my illness was. I had lung blockage and nasal blockage. For two weeks. I was invalid. Did test and non could explain why i was having those symptoms. I was being treated of asthma. For over a year. I wore protective clothing for cold. Until i discovered the source of my illness. I improved the freshness of oxygen around my home and all the symptoms simply vanished. Nowadays. I dare not even dare touch its empty bottle. I will be immediately hit with an involuntary volts of sneezings. It was really a lucky break.

The best solution is to get an Indoor Residual Spray (IRS) that is odorless and will last for 6 months without needing a respray. I spray my house only twice a year using ICON 10CS or Bistar Wp using my IRS Spray.

The Actellic 300 CS can last for one year eliminating the need for respraying within a year. It eliminates everything pest at home.

I feel you. How I wish most people will come across this thread and be better informed. Snipper is really really deadly when misused. Although I still use it in my gardening with amazing results, I always remember how it sent me on terrifying admission.

100% safe just make sure you stay outside for Atleast 1hour 30mins after spraying it. ....also get a sprayer for better results cost less than 1k.

1.open all your windows
2.mix sniper with kerosene for better results
3.wear your original nose mask cost 300naira
4.pour the mixed sniper into your sprayer
5.spray Every part of the house including your curtains With all windows still open
6.close the doors and stay outside for almost 2hours
That's all


Remember to wash your sprayer with water after use.

I have no idea how effective it is in killing mosquitoes but I know it kills human beings. For those who want to kill their enemies and have no idea how to go about it, I present to you - SNIPER! grin

On a more serious note, I knew a 32-year-old male graduate who committed suicide by taking Sniper because he didn't have a job, his family wasn't supportive and his fiance' (who used to support him financially) dumped him for another guy.

When I saw his corpse that morning covered in vomited foams and blood, I had goose pimples all day.

That was like a sharp machete cut on my heart. Just like that, Paul was dead...smh.

I'll advise people to stay away from sniper!!!
I stop breathing when I enter a room that has been "soaked" in sniper. I know people prefer it coz they feel the harsh smell can do the magic of killing stubborn mosquitos... Brethren it's a lie. The mosquitos in my house don't fall under the sniper anointing, I'm the only one who does the falling!
Sniper is harmful, I don't need to be told. I don't know what medical terms they give to the effects but I know breath seizure is one of them, itchy throat and coughing... That's for me sha...

this chemicals na WA, I bought one that promised to kill mosquitos but instead wanted to kill and destroy my eyes. I couldn't sleep throughout the night as my eyes were pouring water and shining like wilili.

I will never use them again, but why did God create mosquitos? these animals are bokoharams ...

It's sad how they bite me every night with such a passion that I'm flattered

Run!!.. sniper gives me Breathe Seizures..
I use to work for a friend's sis in her restraunt which was quite far from town. The restaurant was Located in Upth and we wud always av to spend the nights there till weekend before we went home. During the period and each night before we slept, the other girls wud spray something called Sniper in the room to ward of mosquitoes and that wud be the end of my breath. I would gasp all through the night for air, some times My breath wud stop for like seconds after would I'd take a deep breath then my heart wud feel free.. I didn't figure it was that sniper thing even after I left the place. Until I spent one Holiday with an Uncle and the seizure resumed again cus his wife had the sniper thing and used it every nigh.

That Sniper can Kill o. Maybe slowly see. Then I remember the Doctors in UPTH warned my friend's aunt to stop using that chemical else they would stop coming to eat there. They even said it contained a chemical used in the Mortuary.

Naturally I have strong body system and if I can react to Sniper then that is the end of poisonous
