Mortein is an Australian brand of household insecticide owned by Reckitt Benckiser. Together with its sister product Aerogard, a popular insect repellent, Mortein has become something of a household name in Australia.   The word “Mortein” is a combination of the French word “mort” (dead) and the German word “ein” (one). Ad from 1960.
