Resistance Warning:

GROUP 1B INSECTICIDE

For insecticide resistance management Macro Protect Chlorpyrifos 500 Insecticide and

Termiticide is a Group 1B insecticide.

Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant Macro Protect Chlorpyrifos 500

Insecticide and Termiticide and other Group 1B insecticides may exist through normal

genetic variability in any insect population. The resistant individuals can eventually

Page 2 of 21

dominate the insect population if Macro Protect Chlorpyrifos 500 Insecticide and Termiticide

or other Group 1B insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of Macro Protect

Chlorpyrifos 500 Insecticide and Termiticide on resistant individuals could be significantly

reduced. Since occurrence of resistant individuals is difficult to detect prior to use, Macro

Protect Fertiliser Cooperative Limited accepts no liability for any losses that may result from

the failure of Macro Protect Chlorpyrifos 500 Insecticide and Termiticide to control resistant

insects. Macro Protect Chlorpyrifos 500 Insecticide and Termiticide may be subject to

specific resistance management strategies. For further information contact your local

supplier, Macrofertil representative or local agricultural department agronomist.

Precautions:

(General Pest Control)

DO NOT APPLY INSIDE BUILDINGS EXCEPT AS A CRACK AND CREVICE

TREATMENT. DO NOT APPLY TO SURFACE AREAS SUCH AS INTERIOR FLOORS OR

WALLS.

DO NOT spray into the air or directly on humans, pets or animals. Allow treated areas to

dry completely (normally 3-4 hours) and ventilate buildings before re-occupying.

Avoid contact with food, food utensils or food preparation surfaces.

(Insecticide)

RE-ENTRY TO TREATED AREAS

Field crops, tree crops and vines: Do not allow entry into treated crops until spray deposits

have dried. If prior entry is required, limit duration of entry and wear cotton overalls

buttoned to the neck and wrist (or equivalent clothing) and chemical resistant gloves.

Clothing must be laundered after each day's use.

Greenhouses: Do not allow entry into greenhouses until spray deposits have dried and

treated areas are adequately ventilated. If prior entry is required, limit duration of entry and

wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist (or equivalent clothing) and chemical

resistant gloves and half-face piece respirator. Clothing must be laundered after each day's

use.

Cotton chippers: Do not allow entry into treated crops until spray deposits have dried. After

this time, wear shoes, or boots, socks, long trousers, long sleeved shirt, gloves and hat.

Protections:

(GENERAL PEST CONTROL)

PROTECTION OF PETS AND LIVESTOCK

Before spraying, remove animals and pets from buildings and other areas to be treated.

Cover or remove any open food and water containers.

Cover or remove fish tanks before spraying.

DO NOT allow animals and pets to contact treated areas for at least 24 hours.

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT

DO NOT spray directly on to the foliage of plants as damage to some species is possible.

DANGEROUS to bees. DO NOT spray any plants in flower while bees are actively

foraging.

VERY HIGHLY TOXIC TO FISH AND OTHER INVERTEBRATES. Rinse waters, and run-

off from treated areas MUST NOT enter drains or waterways.

For under slab treatments, the moisture membrane must be installed immediately after

treatment.

DO NOT apply to waterlogged soils.

DO NOT apply if heavy rains are expected to occur within 48 hours of application.

HIGHLY TOXIC TO BIRDS. DO NOT treat fill unless it has been placed back in the trench

to form the chemical soil barrier.

Page 3 of 21

(INSECTICIDE)

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT

HIGHLY TOXIC TO BIRDS AND REPTILES. VERY HIGHLY TOXIC TO FISH AND

AQUATIC INVERTEBRATES.

DO NOT re-apply to the same crop within 7 days (unless specifically recommended in the

directions for use).

Spray drift may occur under adverse meteorological conditions or from certain spray

equipment. DO NOT allow spray to drift onto sensitive areas including, but not limited to,

natural streams, rivers or waterways and human dwellings. A spray drift management

strategy such as those in the “Best Management Practices Manual for Cotton Growers” or

the “Pilots and Operators Manual” should be applied. Options for minimising drift to

sensitive areas include not spraying within a certain distance of sensitive areas when the

wind is blowing towards them (see Table for guidance) or ensuring that drifting spray will be

intercepted by a catching surface such as a row of shelter trees, an unsprayed row of

orchard trees, or hail netting.

Storage and

Disposal:

Store in the closed original container in a cool, well-ventilated area, as cool as possible.

Do not store for prolonged periods in direct sunlight. Store in a locked room away from

children, animals, food, feedstuff, seed or fertilisers. Triple or preferably pressure rinse

containers before disposal. Add rinsings to spray tank. Do not dispose of undiluted

chemicals on site. If recycling, replace cap and return clean containers to recycler or

designated collection point. If not recycling, break, crush or puncture and deliver empty

packaging for appropriate disposal to an approved waste management facility. If an

approved waste management facility is not available, bury the empty packaging 500 mm

below the surface in a disposal pit specifically marked and set up for this purpose clear of

waterways, desirable vegetation and tree roots, in compliance with relevant Local, State

of Territory government regulations. DO NOT burn empty containers or product. Rinsate/

rinse water should be disposed of in accordance with appropriate State legislation and

should preferably be sprayed on to an application site or added as up to 10% of the diluent

the next time this product or another similar insecticide is used. DO NOT put rinse water

down sewers, gutters or storm water drains. IN SOME states wastes can only be buried a

licensed landfill.

SMALL SPILL MANAGEMENT

Wear appropriate clothing and protective equipment whilst cleaning up small spills (see

SAFETY DIRECTIONS). Treat spill with absorbent material such as earth, sand or

granular clay. Sweep up contaminated material and place in a refuse vessel for disposal.

If spilled inside a building, wash contaminated surfaces to deactivate the chlorpyrifos with

a dilute solution of bleach (Sodium hypochlorite), prepared according to the bleach label

instructions. Dispose of the contaminated material in accordance with STORAGE AND

DISPOSAL.

FOR USE AS A TERMITICIDE

RATES OF APPLICATION

IMPORTANT: Macro Protect Chlorpyrifos 500 Insecticide and Termiticide should be used as part of an overall termite management

program as detailed in Australian Standard Series AS3660. 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 a barrier is not complete or breached, then

concealed termite entry may occur. It is often not possible to form a complete termite barrier around existing structures in which case

other termite management options and/or more frequent inspections will also need to be considered.

Page 18 of 21

APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS

APPLICATION EQUIPMENT

Hand Spraying

For hand spraying use a rose head shrouded nozzle, operating at 170 kPa, with a flow meter and pressure regulator fitted to the hand-

piece.

Treatment Beneath Concrete Slabs or Sealed Areas

Where it is not possible or practical to remove the slab to allow direct application to the soil, use a sub-slab injector fitted with multi-

directional tip (eg. a B&G or similar system) with a 5 degree upward angle (eg. 3 way or 4 way) 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 120 degrees (for a 3 way

dispersion tip).

Injection into Soil

Where it is not possible or practicable to trench the 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 120 degrees.

APPLICATION VOLUME

To compensate for impervious soils such as heavy clay where application of 5L/m

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

volume of emulsion less than 5L/m

. When reducing the total volume of emulsion used, increase the concentration accordingly to match

the label rate by mixing the required amount of Macro Protect

Chlorpyrifos 500 Insecticide and Termiticide per m

in a lesser volume of

water. DO NOT use emulsion volumes less than 2L for every square metre to be treated.

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

is only permitted when installing barriers in exposed soil. It is not

permitted when injecting through the slab or into sealed areas.

Existing Structures

a)

Strategic Drilling Through Slab, or Sealed Areas

For treatment of slabs when termites are entering the building through the slab, where reticulation systems do not exist, slab

drilling and 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 is to be determined by a licensed Pest Manager.

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 major cracks or expansion joints. When treating along

major cracks or expansion joints it is recommended that holes are drilled alternately on either side of the crack at the

recommended drill hole spacings.

For a sand base or sandy soil, apply through a row of holes drilled no more than 300mm apart and 100-200mm out from the wall,

crack or pipe. For a clay base, apply through a row of holes drilled 150mm apart and 100mm from the wall, crack or pipe. Apply

10L 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 be created by using either a vertical or horizontal barrier, as determined by the building

construction type and adjoining ground level. An external 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 1.5L of the

correctly diluted Macro Protect Chlorpyrifos 500 Insecticide and Termiticide per lineal metre (150mm wide) to soil

loosened to a depth of approximately 80mm (see APPLICATION VOLUME Section).

Vertical Barrier: The vertical barrier should be at least 150mm wide and should reach down to 50mm below the top of

the footings. To achieve this, trench to the top of the footings, and where it is not possible, a combination of trenching

(preferably at least 300mm deep) and rodding into the base of the trench may be necessary.

Apply Macro Protect Chlorpyrifos 500 Insecticide and Termiticide emulsion at 100L per cubic metre of backfill soil, this

equates to 1.5L of emulsion/linear metre of a trench 150mm wide and 100mm deep. Where the required vertical barrier

Page 19 of 21

is deeper than 100mm, 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 and vertical barriers as specified in Australian Standard Series AS 3660 to adjoin all substructure walls, stumps, piers,

pipes and wastes using the appropriate techniques described for external barriers around concrete slabs

. (See Existing Structures

Section).

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 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 subfloor area also helps to eliminate undue dampness. Pest managers using this product for termite management

should advise the home owner that disturbing the 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 (eg. 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 Macro Protect Chlorpyrifos

500 Insecticide and Termiticide may be applied directly to the termite colony in such situations.

Service Requirement

Regular, competent inspections by a licensed Pest Manager are recommended as part of an overall termite management program to

determine the prevailing termite pressure and environmental conditions and consequent requirement for further termite management

options. Inspections should be performed at least on an annual basis, but more frequent inspections are strongly recommended.

At the 1% application rate Macro Protect Chlorpyrifos 500 Insecticide and Termiticide can provide an effective chemical soil barrier in

subfloor regions

for 4 years or more north of the Tropic of Capricorn, and 10 years or more south of the Tropic of Capricorn. At the 1%

application rate, Macro Protect Chlorpyrifos 500 Insecticide and Termiticide can provide an effective chemical soil barrier in exposed

situations for 2 years or more north of the Tropic of Capricorn, and up to 5 years or more south of the Tropic of Capricorn.

At the 2% application rate north of the Tropic of Capricorn, Macro Protect Chlorpyrifos 500 Insecticide and Termiticide can provide an

effective chemical soil barrier in subfloor regions

for 6 years or more and in exposed situations for up to 3 years or more. The actual

period of efficacy will depend on factors such as termite hazard, climatic conditions, soil types and soil disturbance and

gardening/landscaping practices.

Page 20 of 21

GENERAL PEST CONTROL

WETTING AGENTS

A non-ionic wetter is recommended in applications involving soil incorporation and treatment of tree nests. Add at the rate recommended

on the wetter label.

MIXING

Half fill the spray tank with clean, fresh water (or creosote where applicable) and add the measured amount of Macro Protect Chlorpyrifos

500 Insecticide and Termiticide as per Directions for Use, then add the remaining water (or creosote) with the agitator running. Add

wetter near the end of filling with the hose below the surface to prevent excessive foaming. When using a knapsack, gently shake before

using. Only mix sufficient chemical for each day’s work.

CLEANING SPRAY EQUIPMENT

After using Macro Protect Chlorpyrifos 500 Insecticide and Termiticide, 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 (for knapsacks spray to waste through the nozzle). Drain and repeat the

washing procedure twice. Dispose of rinsate / rinse water in accordance with STORAGE AND DISPOSAL instructions.

pesticides

include:

headache,

fatigue,

dizziness, loss of appetite with nausea, stomach cramps and diarrhoea; blurred

vision associated with excessive tearing; contracted pupils of the eye; excessive

sweating and salivation; slowed heartbeat, often fewer than 50 per minute;

rippling of surface muscles just under the skin. These symptoms may be mistaken

for those of flu, heat stroke or heat exhaustion, or upset stomach. Moderately

severe organophosphate and carbamate insecticide poisoning cases exhibit all

the signs and symptoms found in mild poisonings, but in addition, the victim: is

unable to walk; often complains of chest discomfort and tightness; exhibits

marked constriction of the pupils (pinpoint pupils); exhibits muscle twitching; has

involuntary urination and bowel movement. Severe poisonings are indicated by

incontinence, unconsciousness and seizures.

12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Effects on birds:

Chlorpyrifos is moderately to very highly toxic to birds.

Effects on aquatic organisms:

Chlorpyrifos is very highly toxic to freshwater fish, aquatic invertebrates and

estuarine and marine organisms. Cholinesterase inhibition was observed in

acute toxicity tests of fish exposed to very low concentrations of this insecticide.

Application of concentrations as low as 0.01 pounds of active ingredient per acre

may cause fish and aquatic invertebrate deaths. Due to its high acute toxicity

and its persistence in sediments, chlorpyrifos may represent a hazard to sea

bottom dwellers. Smaller organisms appear to be more sensitive than larger

ones.

Effects on other organisms:

Aquatic and general agricultural uses of chlorpyrifos pose a serious hazard to

wildlife and honeybees.

Environmental Fate

Breakdown in soil and

groundwater:

Chlorpyrifos is moderately persistent in soils. The half-life of chlorpyrifos in soil

is usually between 60 and 120 days, but can range from 2 weeks to over 1 year,

depending on the soil type, climate, and other conditions. Chlorpyrifos adsorbs

strongly to soil particles and it is not readily soluble in water. It is therefore

immobile in soils and unlikely to leach or to contaminate groundwater. TCP, the

principal metabolite of chlorpyrifos, adsorbs weakly to soil particles and appears

to be moderately mobile and persistent in soils.

Breakdown in water:

The concentration and persistence of chlorpyrifos in water will vary depending

on the type of formulation. The rate of hydrolysis is constant in acidic to neutral

waters, but increases in alkaline waters. In water at pH 7.0 and 25°C, it had a

half-life of 35 to 78 days.

Breakdown in vegetation:

Chlorpyrifos may be toxic to some plants, such as lettuce. Residues remain on

plant surfaces for approximately 10 to 14 days. Data indicate that this insecticide

and its soil metabolites can accumulate in certain crops.
