A poster for the campaign to 'Kill the Four Pests', directed against flies, mosquitoes, rats and sparrows (in 1960 replaced by bugs after the sparrows had been largely exterminated with disastrous ecological results). These are unhygienic, or eat food that is meant for human consumption. People are mobilized to kill as many as possible.
