How long had we used DDT before we had it banned?

    It was first made in 1874 but it wasn’t used as a pesticide until 1939. It was banned in the US for agricultural use in 1972. Similar bans have been made in other parts of the world but some places still use it. DDT is also on a list of last resort pesticides for vector control in disease outbreak situations.
