This product mixes readily with water and is specifically packaged for residential use as a diluted spray. Use a clean sprayer, such as a tank type or hose-end sprayer to mix and apply the proper amount of concentrate with the desired volume of water. Ensure all storage and disposal instructions are followed. For perimeter and lawn applications measure the area to be treated to determine the application volume. For trees, shrubs, and flowers apply as a thorough cover spray until foliage is wet. Refer to Specific Application Instructions in the rate Tables for additional instructions.
TERMITE CONTROL (SUBTERRANEAN)
This product may be used to establish an exterior soil barrier against termites around structures. The chemical concentrate is mixed as an emulsion and adequately dispersed in the soil to provide a continuous exterior barrier between wood in the structure and the termite colonies in the soil.
Note: A complete termite barrier may require treatment with other EPA registered products to the inside perimeter of the foundation and to other interior critical areas. For these areas, and if termites are found inside of the home, consult a Licensed Professional Pest Control Service for treatment.
Using a sprinkler can add 3.2 fluid oz. (6.5 tablespoons) to 2 gallons of water (to make a 0.5% emulsion) for each 5 linear feet of treatment to be provided (1 fluid oz. = 2 tablespoons (T) - 6 teaspoons (tsp)). Do not use utensils such as spoons and measuring cups for food purposes after use with pesticides.
HOW TO APPLY
Remove all wood debris and wood forms. Around piers, chimney bases and along foundations of poured concentrate, dig a trench 6 inches wide and 4 inches deep. If the footing is more than 12 inches deep make holes with a steel rod or pipe one foot apart that extend from the bottom of the trench to the top of the footing. Make holes closer in hard packed clay soils. Never dig below the top of the footing.
Apply a 0.5% emulsion rate of 4 gallons per 10 linear feet per foot of depth. Apply half of the emulsion when backfilling the trench. (One quart of this product will make 20 gallons of 0.5% emulsion and treat 50 linear feet.)
Restriction: DO NOT treat structures that contain cisterns or wells. Do not treat soil in the vicinity of wells, cisterns or ponds or structures with sump pumps or french drains. For those situations, contact your County Cooperative Extension Agent or consult a commercial pest control service.
Pre-installation: Using a sprinkler can, pour 1/2 gallon of 0.5% spray emulsion into the fence post hole and add another 1/2 gallon in mixture with the soil when filling the hole so that all the soil is treated. Triple rinse sprinkler can after each use. Do not store any unused product in sprinkler can. Use and follow all directions for storage and disposal found on this label.
Post-installation: Installed poles and posts may be treated by first digging a trench around the post and applying 1 gallon of 0.5% emulsion per one-foot depth of trench for posts less than 6 inches in diameter. For larger diameter posts increase the application rate to 4 gallons for each 10 linear feet of trench and per ft. of depth.
WHEN TO RE-APPLY
Retreatment for subterranean termites can only be performed if there is clear evidence of reinfestation or disruption of the barrier due to construction, excavation, or landscaping and/or evidence of the breakdown of the termiticide barrier in the soil. These vulnerable or reinfested areas may be retreated in accordance with 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 barrier.
Annual retreatment of the structure is prohibited unless there is clear evidence that reinfestation or barrier disruption has occurred.
