CLEANING SPRAY EQUIPMENT

Rinse water should be discharged onto approved disposal areas in

accordance with appropriate State legislation or if this is unavailable,

onto unused land away from buildings, desirable plants and water

courses. DO NOT put rinse water down sewers, gutters or storm

water drains.

After using STRIKE-OUT PC Termiticide and Insecticide, empty the

spray equipment completely and drain the whole system. Thoroughly

wash inside the tank using a pressure hose, and drain. To wash the

system, quarter fill the tank with clean water and circulate through

the pump, lines, hoses and nozzles. Drain and repeat the washing

procedure twice.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS:

FARMOZ

STRIKE-OUT

PC is

specially

formulated for use around buildings and structures for the management

of termites and control of general pests. STRIKE-OUT PC has a low odour

formulation for use in domestic and public places and commercial and

industrial areas. STRIKE-OUT PC is degraded under U.V. light. Best

residual activity is obtained in dark or very shady places.

INSECTICIDE RESISTANCE WARNING

For insecticide resistance management

FARMOZ STRIKE-OUT PC is a Group 1B

insecticide.

Some

resistant

individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if STRIKE-

OUT PC or other Group 1B insecticides are used repeatedly. The

effectiveness of STRIKE-OUT PC on resistant individuals could be

significantly reduced. Since the occurrence of resistant insects is

difficult to detect prior to use, FARMOZ Pty. Ltd. accepts no liability for

any losses that may result from the failure of STRIKE-OUT PC to control

resistant

insects.

injection will be required. In most cases, unless there is a known

severe termite hazard, grid drilling of the slab is not required. Any such

need

determined

licensed

Pest

Control

Operator.

Treatment needs to be made around the inside of all exterior walls to

complete a termite barrier, along both sides of interior wall partitions,

around plumbing/electrical or piping entry points and along one side of

major cracks or expansion joints. For a sand base or sandy soil, apply

through a row of holes drilled 300 mm apart and 100-200 mm out from

the wall, crack or pipe. For a clay base, apply through a row of holes

drilled 150 mm apart and 100 mm from the wall, crack or pipe. Apply 10

L of emulsion per linear metre and ensure the holes are securely

plugged after treatment.

b) External Barriers

An external barrier should be installed around the perimeter of the

building and should circumference all pipes and service facilities.

External

barriers

should

created

using

either

vertical

horizontal barrier, as determined by the building construction type and

adjoining ground level. An exter

nal barrier is an essential part of the

treatment when relying on a chemical soil barrier to provide the full

termite management system as per AS 3660.

An external horizontal barrier is only required when prevention of

concealed vertical access by termites is necessary at the perimeter

(eg, when ground level is equal to the top of a slab, where the slab is

also a barrier to concealed termite movement into the building). A

vertical barrier is required when prevention of concealed horizontal

access is necessary (eg, where ground level is higher than building

material vulnerable to concealed horizontal entry by termites).

Horizontal Barrier: Use a rose head shower nozzle operated at 170

kPa to apply the required rate of 1.5 L of the correctly diluted

STRIKE-OUT PC Termiticide and Insecticide per lineal meter (150

mm wide) to soil loosened to a depth of approximately 80mm (see

APPLICATION VOLUME Section)

Vertical Barrier: The vertical barrier should be at least 150 mm

wide and should reach down to 50 mm below the top of the

footings. To achieve this trench to the top of the footings, and

where this is not possible, a combination of trenching (preferably

at least 300 mm deep) and rodding into the base of the trench may

be necessary.

Apply STRIKE-OUT PC Termiticide and Insecticide emulsion at 100 L per

cubic metre of backfill soil, this equates to 1.5 L of emulsion/linear

metre of a trench 150 mm wide and 100 mm deep. Where the required

vertical barrier is deeper than 100 mm, ensure the same rate of

application for the extra volume of soil. Use a rose head shower nozzle

operated at 170 kPa to flood the base of the open trench and also to

treat the backfill soil as it is replaced into the trench to ensure even

distribution. Where rodding is necessary, rod before the trench is

treated using the spacings in the following table.

Rod Spacings

Heavy Clay

Clay Loams

Sands

150 mm

200 mm

300 mm

Insert the rod to the foundation foot as close as possible to the house

wall ensuring the chemical is applied during insertion and withdrawal.

(See APPLICATION EQUIPMENT SECTION, Injection into Soil).

c) Suspended Floors

Install

horizontal

vertical

barriers

specified

Australian

Standard Series 3660 to abut all substructure walls, stumps, piers,

pipes and wastes using the appropriate techniques described for

external

barriers

around

concrete

slabs (See

Existing

Structures

Section).

3. Retreatment/Service Requirement

Regular competent inspection is required to determine the need for re-

treatment. Annual inspection by a licensed Pest Control Operator is

recommended. The expected life of the under floor barrier is at least 4

years north of the Tropic of Capricorn, and at least 10 years south of the

Tropic of Capricorn. The expected life of the external barrier is at least

2 years north of the Tropic of Capricorn, and at least 5 years south of

the Tropic of Capricorn. The actual period of protection will depend on

factors

such

termite

hazard,

climate,

soil

conditions

soil

disturbance.

EXECUTIVE PRESS 06/09 – 0418 263 830

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS: TERMITE MANAGEMENT

To minimise the risk of termite infestation, the subfloor area of buildings

should be kept free of stored or waste timber and all other building

materials that attract termites. Appropriate action should also be taken

to eliminate any undue dampness caused by leaking water or sewerage

pipes, or inadequate drainage. Subterranean termites need a constant

source of moisture to survive. Provision of adequate ventilation in the

sub-floor area also helps eliminate undue dampness. Pest managers

using this product for termite management should advise the home

owner

that

disturbing

treated

soil

barrier

with

subsequent

construction of additions or alterations, paths, steps, landscaping etc,

may render the termite management system in place ineffective unless

further management options are considered.

Colonies not in contact with the ground

Occasionally subterranean termites establish a colony in a building

without having contact with the soil because they have access to a

continuous supply of moisture (e.g. from a faulty plumbing fixture or

leaking roof). Such colonies are not affected by chemical soil barriers

and should be treated as recommended for established colonies, as per

Australian Standard Series AS 3660. STRIKE-OUT PC Termiticide and

Insecticide may be applied directly to the termite colony in such

situations.

APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Application Equipment

Hand Spraying: For hand spraying use a rose head shrouded nozzle

operated at 170 kPa and with a flow meter and pressure regulator fitted

to the hand-piece.

Injection Through Concrete Slabs or Sealed Areas

Use a sub-slab injector fitted with a multi-directional tip (a B&G, or

similar system) with a 5 degree upward angle (e.g. 3 way or 4 way) and

operated at 170 kPa. Ensure a strong seal with the top of the drill hole

to avoid leakage. For the best distribution, the injector needs to be held

vertically at right angles to the slab and rotated during the application

through 90 degrees if using a 4 way dispersion tip, or through 180

degrees for a 3 way dispersion tip.

Injection into Soil

Use a soil rod with a 3 or 4 way multi-directional tip (B&G, or similar)

operated at 170 kPa. The 4 way tip needs to be rotated during the

application through 90 degrees and the 3 way tip through 180 degrees.

2. Application Volume

To compensate for impervious soils such as clays where application of

5 L/m

would cause run-off it may be necessary to apply a volume of

emulsion less than 5 L/m

. When reducing the volume of emulsion used,

increase the concentration accordingly to match the label rate by

mixing the required amount of STRIKE-OUT PC per m

in a lesser volume

of water. DO NOT use emulsion volumes less than 2 L/m

NOTE: Use of emulsion volumes other than the recommended 5 L/m

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

MANAGEMENT OF SUBTERRANEAN TERMITES

(All States, except Tasmania)

RESTRAINTS:

DO NOT apply to soils if excessively wet or immediately after heavy rain or if heavy rains are expected within 48 hours to avoid run-off of chemical.

DO NOT use at less than indicated label rates.

DO NOT use in cavity walls, except for direct treatment of nest.

DO NOT use on alkaline soils in SA (use on neutral or acid soils only) or on dolomite based sub-slab bedding material.

RATES OF APPLICATION

IMPORTANT: STRIKE-OUT PC Termiticide and Insecticide should be used as part of an overall termite management program as detailed in Australian Standard Series AS

3660. A great deal of care is required to understand construction details of the building and to apply the product in a manner which ensures a complete chemical soil barrier.

Where necessary, the barrier may need to be re-applied under the building. Application equipment must be fitted with a flow meter and pressure regulator on the application

device. The purpose of a chemical soil barrier is to impede and discourage concealed termite entry into a structure. Barriers may still be bridged by termites, but their entry

can then be more easily detected during routine inspections. If barrier is not complete or breached, then concealed termite entry may occur. It is often not possible to form

a complete barrier around existing structures, which case other termite management options and/or more frequent inspections will also need to be considered.

Trench (preferred) or rod and puddle-treat backfill, ensuring a complete and continuous treated soil barrier

is provided around the pole or post, to a minimum depth of 300 mm and minimum width of 150 mm. Use 100

L of emulsion per m

of soil. In addition, infested poles may be drilled near ground level and the cavity

flooded with emulsion. This allows seepage to form a treated soil barrier.

Note: A 50 mm gap between fence palings and soil will reduce termite attack and fungal decay. Only soil in

contact with palings should be treated.

Replenishment is recommended within 2 years north of the Tropic of Capricorn and 5 years in other areas.

If the barrier is disturbed or rain falls immediately after application, retreat to restore continuity and

completeness of the barrier.

Section 11– Toxicological Information

Toxicity: The oral LD

for chlorpyrifosin ratsis 95to 270 mg/kg.The LD

for chlorpyrifos is 60 mg/kg in mice,

1000 mg/kg inrabbits, 32 mg/kg inchickens, 500 to504 mg/kg in guinea pigs,and 800 mg/kg in sheep. The dermal

is greaterthan 2000 mg/kg in rats,and 1000 to 2000 mg/kg inrabbits. The4-hour inhalation LC

for chlorpyrifos

in rats isgreater than 0.2mg/L.

Persons withrespiratory ailments, recent exposure to cholinesterase inhibitors, cholinesterase impairment, or liver

malfunctionare at increased risk from exposure tochlorpyrifos. Some organophosphatesmay cause delayed

symptomsbeginning1 to 4 weeks after an acute exposure which may or may not have produced immediate

symptoms. In such cases, numbness, tingling, weakness, and cramping may appear in the lower limbsand progress

to incoordination and paralysis. Improvement may occurovermonths or years, and in somecases residual

impairment will remain. Signs and symptoms associatedwith mild exposuresto organophosphate and carbamate

pesticides include: headache, fatigue, dizziness, lossof appetite with nausea, stomach crampsand diarrhoea; blurred

vision associated with excessive tearing; contractedpupilsof the eye; excessive sweating and salivation; slowed

heartbeat, often fewer than50 per minute; rippling ofsurface muscles just under the skin. These symptoms may be

mistaken for those of flu, heat strokeorheat exhaustion, or upset stomach.Moderately severe organophosphate and

carbamate insecticide poisoningcases exhibit all the signs and symptoms foundin mild poisonings, but inaddition,

the victim: is unable to walk; often complains of chest discomfort and tightness; exhibits markedconstrictionof the

pupils(pinpoint pupils); exhibits muscle twitching; has involuntary urination and bowel movement. Severe poisonings

are indicated by incontinence, unconsciousness and seizures.

Chronic toxicity:Repeatedor prolonged exposure toorganophosphatesmay result in the same effects asacute

exposure including the delayed symptoms. Other effectsreportedin workers repeatedly exposed include impaired

memory and concentration,disorientation, severe depressions, irritability, confusion,headache, speech difficulties,

delayed reaction times, nightmares, sleepwalking, anddrowsiness orinsomnia. An influenza-like condition with

headache, nausea, weakness, loss of appetite, andmalaise has also been reported. When technical chlorpyrifos was

fed to dogs for 2 years, increased liver weight occurredat 3.0 mg/kg/day. Signsof cholinesterase inhibitionoccurred

at 1 mg/kg/day. Rats andmice given technicalchlorpyrifosin the diet for 104 weeks showed noadverse effects other

than cholinesterase inhibition. Two-yearfeedingstudies using doses of 1 and 3mg/kg/day ofchlorpyrifosinrats

showedmoderate depression of cholinesterase.Cholinesterase levels recoveredwhen the experimental feedingwas

discontinued.Identical results occurredina 2-yearfeedingstudy with dogs. No long term health effects were seenin

either the dogor rat study. A measurable change in plasma and red bloodcell cholinesteraselevels was seen in

workers exposed to chlorpyrifos spray. Human volunteerswho ingested 0.1 mg/kg/day of chlorpyrifosfor 4weeks

showedsignificant plasmacholinesterase inhibition.

Reproductiveeffects:Current evidence indicates that chlorpyrifosdoes not adversely affectreproduction.In two

studies, no effects were seen in animalstested at dose levels up to1.2 mg/kg/day. No effects on reproduction

occurredin a three-generation study withrats fed dietarydosesashigh as 1 mg/kg/day. In another study in which rats

were fed 1.0 mg/kg/day for two generations, the onlyeffect observed was a slight increase inthe number of deaths of

newborn offspring.

Teratogenic effects:Available evidence suggests that chlorpyrifosis not teratogenic. No teratogenic effects in

offspring were found whenpregnant ratswere fed dosesas high as15 mg/kg/day for 10 days. Whenpregnant mice

were given doses of 25 mg/kg/day for 10days, minor skeletal variations and a decrease in fetal length occurred. No

birth defectswere seen inthe offspring of male and female rats fed 1.0 mg/kg/day during a three-generation

reproductionand fertility study.

Mutagenic effects:There is no evidence that chlorpyrifos is mutagenic. No evidence of mutagenicity was found in

any of four tests performed.

Carcinogenic effects:There is noevidence that chlorpyrifosiscarcinogenic. There was noincrease in the incidence

of tumorswhen ratswere fed 10 mg/kg/day for 104 weeks, norwhen micewerefed 2.25 mg/kg/day for 105 weeks.

Organ toxicity: Chlorpyrifos primarily affects the nervous system through inhibitionof cholinesterase, an enzyme

required for proper nerve functioning.

Fate in humans and animals:Chlorpyrifos is readilyabsorbed into the bloodstream throughthe gastrointestinal tract

if it is ingested, through the lungs if it isinhaled,or through theskinif there isdermal exposure.In humans,

chlorpyrifosand its principal metabolitesare eliminated rapidly.After a single oral dose, the half-life of chlorpyrifosin

the blood appears to be about 1 day. Chlorpyrifosis eliminatedprimarily through the kidneys. Followingoral intake of

chlorpyrifosbyrats, 90% is removed in the urine and10% isexcreted in the faeces. It isdetoxified quickly inrats,

dogs, and other animals. The major metabolite found in rat urine after a single oral dose is trichloropyridinol(TCP).

TCP does notinhibit cholinesterase andit is not mutagenic.Chlorpyrifos does not have a significant bioaccumulation

potential. Following intake, a portion isstored in fat tissuesbut it is eliminated inhumans, witha half-life of about 62

hours. Whenchlorpyrifoswas fed to cows, unchangedpesticidewas found in thefaeces, but not in the urineor milk.

However, it was detected inthe milk of cows for 4 daysfollowingspray dippingwith a 0.15% emulsion. The maximum

concentrationin the milk was 0.304 ppm. In a rat study, chlorpyrifosdid not accumulate in any tissue except fat.

Section 12 – Ecological Information

Effects on birds:Chlorpyrifos is moderately to veryhighly toxicto birds.Itsoral LD

is 8.41mg/kg in pheasants, 112

mg/kg in mallard ducks, 21.0 mg/kg in house sparrows, and 32 mg/kg in chickens. The LD

for a granularproduct

(15G) in bobwhite quail is108 mg/kg. At 125 ppm, mallardslaidsignificantly fewer eggs. There was noevidence of

changes in weight gain, orin the number, weight, andquality of eggs produced byhens fed dietary levels of50 ppm

of chlorpyrifos.

Effects on aquatic organisms:Chlorpyrifosisveryhighly toxicto freshwaterfish, aquatic invertebrates and

estuarine andmarine organisms. Cholinesterase inhibition was observed in acute toxicity testsof fishexposed to very

low concentrations of this insecticide.Application of concentrations as low as0.01pounds of active ingredient per

acre may cause fish and aquatic invertebrate deaths.Chlorpyrifostoxicity to fish may be related to water temperature.

The 96-hourLC

for chlorpyrifos is 0.009 mg/L in mature rainbow trout, 0.098 mg/L in lake trout, 0.806 mg/L in

goldfish, 0.01mg/L in bluegill, and 0.331 mg/L in fathead minnow.Whenfathead minnowswere exposed to similar

product for a200-day periodduring which they reproduced, the firstgeneration ofoffspring haddecreasedsurvival

and growth, aswell asa significant number of deformities.This occurred at approximately 0.002 mg/L exposure for a

30-day period.Chlorpyrifos accumulates in the tissuesofaquatic organisms. Studies involvingcontinuousexposure

of fish during the embryonic through fry stages haveshownbioconcentration values of 58 to 5100. Due to its high

acute toxicity and its persistence insediments, chlorpyrifos may represent a hazard to sea bottom dwellers. Smaller

organisms appear to be more sensitive than larger ones.

Effects on other organisms:Aquaticand general agricultural uses of chlorpyrifos pose a serious hazardto wildlife

and honeybees.

Environmental Fate:

Breakdown insoil and groundwater:Chlorpyrifos ismoderatelypersistent insoils. The half-life of chlorpyrifos in

soil is usually between60and 120 days, but can range from 2 weeks to over1 year, dependingon the soil type,

climate, andother conditions. Thesoil half-life of chlorpyrifoswas from 11 to 141 days in seven soils ranging in

texture from loamy sandto clay and withsoil pHs from5.4 to7.4. Chlorpyrifoswas less persistent in the soils with a

higher pH. Soil half-life was not affected by soil texture ororganicmatter content. In anaerobic soils, the half-life was

15 days in loam and 58 days in clay soil. Adsorbed chlorpyrifos issubject to degradation by UV light, chemical

hydrolysisand by soil microbes. Whenapplied to moist soils,the volatility half-life of chlorpyrifos was 45to 163 hours,

with 62 to 89% of the applied chlorpyrifosremaining onthe soil after 36 hours. In anotherstudy, 2.6 and 9.3% of the

chlorpyrifosapplied to sandor silt loamsoil remainedafter 30 days. Chlorpyrifos adsorbsstrongly to soil particles and

it is not readilysoluble inwater. It is therefore immobilein soils andunlikely to leach or tocontaminate groundwater.

TCP, the principal metabolite of chlorpyrifos, adsorbsweaklyto soilparticlesandappears to bemoderately mobile

and persistentin soils.

Breakdown inwater:The concentrationand persistence of chlorpyrifos in water will vary dependingon thetype of

formulation. For example, a large increase in chlorpyrifosconcentrations occurs when emulsifiable concentrations and

wettable powders are releasedinto water. As the pesticide adheres to sediments andsuspended organic matter,

concentrationsrapidly decline. The increase in theconcentration ofinsecticide is not as rapid for granules and

controlledrelease formulations in thewater, but the resultingconcentration persists longer. Volatilization isprobably

the primary route of loss ofchlorpyrifosfrom water.Volatility half-lives of 3.5 and 20 days have been estimated for

pondwater. The photolysishalf-life of chlorpyrifosis 3to4 weeks during midsummer in the U.S. Its changeinto other

natural formsis slow. Research suggests that this insecticide is unstable inwater, and the rateat which it is

hydrolyzed increaseswith temperature, decreasing by2.5- to3-fold with each 10C dropin temperature. The rate of

hydrolysisisconstant in acidicto neutral waters, butincreases inalkaline waters. In water atpH 7.0 and 25C, it had a

half-life of 35 to 78 days.

Breakdown invegetation:Chlorpyrifosmay be toxic to some plants, such as lettuce. Residuesremain on plant

surfacesfor approximately 10 to 14 days. Data indicate thatthis insecticide and its soil metabolites can accumulate in

certain crops.
