Some of the text in this Vintage Ad:


From reconstruction of a Coal Age scene in the Field Museum of Natural History, Chicago


This was Adam’s Bug Killer


Meet one of the original fighters

in the world's longest war-the

war against insects.

When our globe was young and

man was new, this giant dragon

fly with the two-foot wingspread

was one of the world's few bug

killers. Without her, and others

of her family Libellulidae, mankind

might never have gotten a

start. Instead, the insects probably

would have taken over.

From insect-devouring dragon

flies of a quarter billion years

ago to the modem insecticides

of Monsanto Chemistry, the

war on predatory insects continues.

Each year sees new gains made

as science adds more weapons

to the arsenal against insects.

And every gain is important to

mankind, for there is an estimated

loss of well over a billion

dollars a year from insect-bone

diseases and from insect damage

to food crops, stored products,

livestock, forests, and

lumber products.

One of the most recent aids in

this age-old struggle is DDT


manufactured by Monsanto

under its trade name,

Santobane. But this is just one

of many Monsanto products

serving on the insecticide front.

See list at the right.

Monsanto will welcome inquiries

on any of these products from

industries which are at work to

cut that billion-a-year loss from

insect damage. Please address,

on business letterhead:


Monsanto Chemicals and Plastics

Serving Industry…Which Serves Mankind


An interesting Vintage Ad, especially since what we have learned about insecticides since this ad was produced in 1946.

You pick your frame color, and you pick your mat color. We will mat and frame your Vintage Ad per your request and send it to you promptly. All you have to do is remove it from the box and hang it on the wall in your home, office, garage, man cave, or showroom!

We mat and frame original, vintage magazine ads...they are in good condition, but may not be perfect as they are many decades old. Frame outside dimensions are 15" x 12", and matted ad is approximately 9-5/8" x 6-5/8" (could be slightly different, depending on ad).

Frames and vintage ads are actual as shown, and mat is computer generated for online viewing. Actual mat is custom cut for each individual ad and mat color will be similar to the colors shown on the website. “Travel Route 3 Scan” watermark is placed on the ad for online viewing only, and is not part of the final product. Back side of Vintage Ad is glued to backing paper so that it continues to display flat over time. Here is what you will receive:

- New frame
- New mat
- New glass
- Vintage Ad
