Carpentersville Memories

Bug Spray Truck Video Page


Welcome to the Carpentersville Memories video pages. Our goal is to bring back some fun memories of growing up in the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. 


This video page is dedicated to memories of the Bug Spray Truck.


The Bug Spray Truck !

In the late 1940s, and into the 1950s and 1960s, trucks would drive through the streets spraying DDT, leaving a thick fog behind.

Did you run after or ride your bike behind the bug spray truck?
