Dominion PT is an excellent termiticide that targets various insect pests. Contains imidacloprid as its active ingredient which is used in controlling termites, soil insects, and sucking insects. It is a specially formulated for pre-construction termite treatments and ideal to apply on elevated structures with crawlspaces, concrete slab-on-ground foundations, basements, and block foundations. This non-repellent insecticide prevents and kills dry wood termites, damp wood termites, subterranean termites, carpenter ants, and wood-infesting termites. It is a long-lasting termiticide that provides a continuous chemically treated zone in a structure and the colonies of termites in the soil. Formulated to kill termites and other insects that enter a treated area. Available in a 2.15-gallon jug.
It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.

APPLICATION AS A TERMITICIDE
Dominion PT may be used in and around structures and building construction to prevent and control termite infestations.
For subterranean termite control, specific treatment instructions may differ due to regulations, treatment procedures, soil types, construction practices, and other factors. The purpose of chemical soil treatment for termite control is to establish a continuous chemical treated zone (horizontal and/or vertical) between the wood and other cellulose material in the structure and the termite colonies in the soil. Follow all federal, state, and local regulations and treatment standards for the protection of a structure from termites. The establishment of an aerial or above ground colony may require additional treatments to control the termites, as well as landscape modifications, and/or structural repairs to deny termites of a moisture source. Use a 0.05% to 0.1% dilution based on current recommendations. For a typical control situation, a 0.05% dilution is used. A 0.1% dilution may be used when a severe or persistent infestation exists.
When treating adjacent to an existing structure, the applicator must check the area to be treated, and immediately adjacent areas of the structure, for visible and accessible cracks and holes to prevent any leaks or significant exposures to persons occupying the structure. People present or residing in the structure during application must be advised to remove their pets and themselves from the structure if they see any signs of leakage. After application, the applicator is required to check for leaks. All leaks resulting in the deposition of termiticide in locations other than those prescribed on this label must be cleaned up prior to leaving the application site. Do not allow people or pets to contact contaminated areas or to reoccupy contaminated areas of the structure until the clean up is completed.
MIXING: Refer to MIXING TABLE for the correct amount of Dominion PT to be used.
Follow this procedure for mixing the termiticide dilution:
Fill tank to 1/3 full.
If using a large sprayer, start the pump to begin bypass agitation and place end of treating tool in the tank to allow circulation through the hose.
Add appropriate amount of Dominion PT. Add the remaining amount of water. Let pump run and allow recirculation through the hose for 2 to 3 minutes.
Use the application volumes described in the Dominion PT DIRECTIONS FOR USE whenever possible. However, where soil conditions will not accept the application of 4 gallons of Dominion PT per 10 linear feet, twice the Dominion PT concentration may be applied in 2 gallons of solution per 10 linear feet. For example, if 0.05% is the correct use rate to be applied in 4 gallons of water, then 2 gallons of 0.1% dilution may be used per 10 linear feet to deliver an equivalent amount of Dominion PT per unit of soil.
Do not apply at a lower dosage and/or concentration than specified on this label for application prior to installation of the finished grade.
Prior to each application, applicators must notify the general contractor, construction superintendent, or similar responsible party, of the intended termiticide application and intended sites of application and instruct the responsible person to notify construction workers and other individuals to leave the area to be treated during application and until the termiticide is absorbed into the soil.
CONCRETE SLAB-ON-GROUND OR BASEMENTS: Apply an overall treatment to the entire surface of the soil or other substrates to be covered by the slab including areas to be under carports, porches, basement floors, and entrance platforms. Apply at the rate of 1 gallon of solution to accurately and uniformly cover 10 square feet. If fill under the slab is gravel or other coarse aggregates, apply at the rate of 1.5 gallons or sufficient volume of solution, to accurately and uniformly cover 10 square feet. In addition, apply 4 gallons of solution (see APPLICATION VOLUME) per 10 linear feet to provide a uniform treated zone in soil at critical areas such as along the inside of foundation walls, and around plumbing, bath traps, utility services, and other features that will penetrate the slab.
After completion of grading, make an application by trenching, or trenching and rodding around the slab or foundation perimeter. Rodding may be done from the bottom of a shallow trench. When rodding, rod holes must be spaced in a manner that will allow for a continuous chemical treated zone, not to exceed 12 inches, to be deposited along the treated area. Rod holes must not extend below the footing. Apply 4 gallons of solution (see APPLICATION VOLUME) per 10 linear feet, per foot of depth to provide a uniform treated zone. When trenching, the trench along the outside foundation must be about 6 inches in width and 6 inches in depth. Use a low-pressure spray (not to exceed 25 PSI at the treatment tool when the valve is open) to treat soil which will be placed in the trench after rodding. Mix the spray solution with soil as it is being placed in the trench. When treating voids in hollow masonry units, use 2 gallons of solution per 10 linear feet of wall. Apply solution so it will reach the footing by injecting into the lower areas of the wall, just above the floor or footing.
When treating foundations deeper than 4 feet, apply the termiticide as the backfill is being replaced, or if the construction contractor fails to notify the applicator to permit this, treat the foundation to a minimum depth of 4 feet after the backfill has been installed. The applicator must trench and rod into the trench or trench along the foundation walls and around pillars and other foundation elements, at the rate prescribed from grade to a minimum depth of 4 feet. When the top of the footing is exposed, the applicator must treat the soil adjacent to the footing to a depth not to exceed the bottom of the footing. However, in no case treat a structure below the footing.
Rodding in trench followed by flooding of trench and treatment of backfill may provide a better opportunity to achieve a continuous chemical treated zone than using soil rodding alone to establish a vertical termiticide treated zone.
CRAWL SPACES: Application must be made by trenching or trenching and rodding downward along the inside and outside of foundation walls, around piers, interior supports in contact with the soil, plumbing, and utility services. Apply 4 gallons of solution (see APPLICATION VOLUME) per 10 linear feet, per foot of depth to provide a uniform treated zone. Rodding may be done from the bottom of a shallow trench to top of the footing or a minimum of 4 feet. When rodding, rod holes must be spaced in a manner that will allow for a continuous chemical treated zone to be deposited along the treated area. Rod holes must not extend below the footing. When trenching, the trench must be about 6 inches wide and 6 inches deep. Use a low-pressure spray to treat soil which will be placed in the trench, mixing the spray solution with soil as it is being placed in the trench.
HOLLOW BLOCK FOUNDATIONS OR VOIDS: Hollow block foundations or voids in masonry resting on the footing may be treated to provide a continuous chemical treated zone in the voids at the footing. Apply 2 gallons of solution per 10 linear feet to the lower part of the void so that it reaches the top of the footing or soil.
Treatment of voids in block or rubble foundation walls must be closely examined. Applicators must inspect areas of possible runoff as a precaution against application leakage in the treated areas. Some areas may not be treatable or may require mechanical alteration prior to treatment.
All leaks resulting in the deposition of termiticide in locations other than those prescribed on this label must be cleaned up prior to leaving the application site (refer to PRECAUTIONARY STATEMENTS). Do not allow people or pets to contact or to reoccupy the contaminated areas of the structure until the clean up is completed.
Construction practices, soil subsidence, and other factors may create situations in which a continuous chemical treated zone cannot be achieved using conventional treatment alone. In situations where necessary, conventional application methods can be supplemented through the use of foam generating equipment, or similar devices, to provide a continuous treated zone.
Foam application may be made alone or in combination with conventional application methods, provided that the labeled amount of active ingredient per unit area is used.
Foam Application Use Directions: Mix appropriate concentration of Dominion PT in water and add the manufacturer’s specified quantity of foam agent to the Dominion PT solution (see table for foaming recommendations). Apply a sufficient volume of Dominion PT foam alone or in combination with the liquid solution to provide a continuous treated zone at the specified rate for specific application sites.
NOTE: Add the manufacturer’s specified quantity of foam agent to the Dominion PT solution.
Retreatment for subterranean termites can only be performed if there is clear evidence of reinfestation or disruption of the treated zone due to construction, excavation, or landscaping and/or evidence of the breakdown of the termiticide treated zone in the soil. The vulnerable or reinfested areas may retreat in accordance with the application techniques described in this product’s labeling. The timing and type of these retreatments will vary, depending on factors such as termite pressure, soil types, soil conditions and other factors which may reduce the effectiveness of the treated zone. Retreatment may be made as either a spot or complete treatment.
When a structure is not known to be reinvested and the treated zone is not disturbed, but where the structure was last treated five or more years ago, retreatment may be performed if, in the judgment of the applicator, it is necessary to ensure adequate protection of the structure. In determining the timing of any retreatment, the applicator must consider efficacy and/or degradation data and/or site-specific conditions and previous experience that indicate a vulnerability of the structure to termite attack.
Annual retreatment of the structure is prohibited unless there is clear evidence that reinfestation or treated zone disruption has occurred.
When another registered termite control product/system is used as the primary treatment for prevention or control of subterranean termites and is applied to all label-specified areas, Dominion PT may be applied as a spot application in a secondary treatment to critical areas of the structure including plumbing and utility entry sites, bath traps, expansion joints, foundation cracks. The outside foundation wall, and areas of known or suspected activity at either a pre-construction or post-construction timing. These secondary treatments must be applied in amounts and concentration in accordance with label directions relevant to the treatment area(s) to receive the secondary treatment.
