Resistance Warning:

Insecticide Resistance Warning

GROUP 1B INSECTICIDE

For insecticide resistance management, Pidgeon’s Pest Controller 500 Termiticide and

Insecticide is a Group 1B insecticide.

Some naturally-occurring insect biotypes resistant to Pidgeon’s Pest Controller 500

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

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

dominate the insect population if Pidgeon’s Pest Controller 500 Termiticide and Insecticide

or other Group 1B Insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of Pidgeon’s Pest

Controller 500 Termiticide and Insecticide on resistant individuals could be significantly

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

Superway Garden Products Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from

the failure of Pidgeon’s Pest Controller 500 Termiticide and Insecticide to control resistant

insects.

Pidgeon’s Pest Controller 500 Insecticide may be subject to specific resistance strategies.

For further information contact your local supplier or Superway representative.

First Aid Warnings:

APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS – TERMITE MANAGEMENT

APPLICATION EQUIPMENT

Hand Spraying

For hand spraying use a rose head shrouded nozzle operating 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 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 120 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

120 degrees.

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 Pidgeon’s Pest Controller 500 Termiticide and Insecticide per m

in a lesser

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

treated.

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

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 not for use in home,garden,residential or publicly accessible spaces: Use

a rose head shower nozzle operated at 170 kPa to apply the required rate

of 1.5L of the correctly diluted Pidgeon’s Pest Controller 500 Termiticide per lineal metre (150mm

wide) to soil loosened to a depth of at least 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 this

is not possible, a combination of trenching (preferably at least 300mm deep) and rodding into the

base of the trench may be necessary.

Apply Pidgeon’s Pest Controller 500 Termiticide and Insecticide 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 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 3660 to abut all

substructure walls, stumps, piers, pipes and wastes using the techniques described for external

barriers around concrete slabs. (See Existing Structures Section.) Not for use in home, garden,

residential or publicly accessible spaces.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS – Termite Management

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 subfloor area also helps 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. Pidgeon’s pest

Controller Termiticide and Insecticide 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

determine

prevailing

termite

pressure

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, Pidgeon’s Pest Controller Termiticide and Insecticide 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, Pidgeon’s pest

Controller Termiticide and Insecticide can provide an effective chemical soil barrier in exposed

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

Capricorn.

The actual period of efficacy will depend on many factors such as termite hazard, climatic conditions,

soil types and soil disturbance and gardening/landscaping practices.

using a knapsack gently shake before using. Preferably only mix sufficient chemical for each specific

application.

APPLICATION (In Crop):

Ground: Apply per hectare rates in sufficient water to give thorough coverage. See Directions for Use

for details.

Aircraft: Apply in 10-50 litres of water per hectare.

CLEANING SPRAY EQUIPMENT

After using Pidgeon’s Pest Controller 500, 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.

Disposal of rinsate/rinse water in accordance with Storage and Disposal instructions below.

MANAGEMENT OF SUBTERRANEAN TERMITES (All States, except Tasmania)

RATES OF APPLICATION

IMPORTANT: Pidgeon’s Pest Controller 500 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 a 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 in which case other termite management options

and/or more frequent inspections will also need to be considered.

or creosote

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 300mm and minimum width of

150mm. Use 100L of emulsion per m

of soil. In addition, infested poles may be drilled near ground

level and the cavity flooded with the emulsion. This allows seepage to form a treated soil barrier.

Note: A 50mm 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.

Refer to Australian Standard Series AS 3660.

Treatment of termite nest or

colony.

100mL/10L of water

Once the nest or colony has been located it should be broken open and flooded with emulsion. This

includes nests located in trees. When treating trees, the addition of a wetting agent is suggested.
