GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS - TERMITE MANAGEMENT CONDITIONS FOR USE BY

AUTHORISED PERSONS

The applicator (Pest Manager) must be licensed under State legislation. The Pest Manager

must supervise the installation of the moisture membrane and the building workers must

wear appropriate protective equipment while laying the moisture membrane.

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 either the builder contractor or home owner. etc. 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. TITAN CHLORPYRIFOS PC 450 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 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, TITAN CHLORPYRIFOS PC 450 INSECTICIDE can provide an

effective chemical soil barrier in subfloor regions for 4 years or more north of the Tropic of

Capricorn and two years or more south of the Tropic of Capricorn. At the 1 % application

rate, TITAN CHLORPYRIFOS PC 450 INSECTICIDE 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, TITAN CHLORPYRIFOS PC

450 INSECTICIDE 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 many factors such as termite hazard, climatic

conditions, soil types and soil disturbance and gardening/landscaping practices.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

MIXING

Half fill the spray tank with water (or creosote where applicable) and add the required

amount of TITAN CHLORPYRIFOS PC 450 INSECTICIDE , then add the remaining water

(or creosote) with an agitator running. If using a knapsack sprayer gently shake before

using. Only mix sufficient chemical for each specific application.

CLEANING SPRAY EQUIPMENT

After using TITAN CHLORPYRIFOS PC 450 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 (for knapsack sprayers 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

below.

Resistance Warning:

INSECTICIDE RESISTANCE WARNING

For insecticide resistance management TITAN Chlorpyrifos PC 450 Insecticide is a Group

1B insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to TITAN Chlorpyrifos

PC 450 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 TITAN Chlorpyrifos PC 450 Insecticide or other Group 1B insecticides

are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of TITAN Chlorpyrifos PC 450 Insecticide on

resistant individuals could be significantly reduced. Since occurrence of resistant individuals

is difficult to detect prior to use, TITAN AG Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that

may result from the failure of TITAN Chlorpyrifos PC 450 Insecticide to control resistant

insects. TITAN Chlorpyrifos PC 450 Insecticide may be subject to specific resistance

management strategies. For further information contact your local supplier or TITAN AG Pty

Ltd representative.

Precautions:

PRECAUTIONS

DO NOT apply inside buildings except as a crack and crevice treatment. DO NOT apply to

surface areas such as interior floors or walls. Re-Entry to Treated Areas Suspended floors:

DO NOT allow entry until treated areas are completely dry (normally 3-4 hours).

Concrete Slabs: Cover treated areas immediately with a moisture membrane.

Re-entry permitted after laying of the moisture membrane. DO NOT permit re-occupation

of any premises until treated areas are completely dry (normally 3-4 hours) and adequately

ventilated.

Protections:

PROTECTION OF PETS AND LIVESTOCK

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

Cover or remove any open food or water containers. Cover or remove fish tanks before

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

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

foraging.

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT

VERY HIGHLY TOXIC TO FISH AND AQUATIC 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. DO NOT spray directly onto the foliage of plants

as damage to some species is possible.

Storage and

Disposal:

SMALL SPILL MANAGEMENT

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

SAFETY DIRECTIONS),Apply absorbent material such as earth, sand, cat litter or clay

granules to the spill.Sweep up material and contain 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 instructions below.

STORAGE AND DISPOSAL

Store in the closed, original container in a cool, well-ventilated area. Do not store for

prolonged periods in direct sunlight. Triple-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 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 or territory government regulations. Do not burn empty

containers or product.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE:

MANAGEMENT OF SUBTERRANEAN TERMITES (All States, except Tasmania)

RATES OF APPLICATION

IMPORTANT: TITAN CHLORPYRIFOS PC 450 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.

AUTHORISED UNDER APPROPRIATE LEGISLATION

APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS PRE-CONSTRUCTION

CONCRETE SLAB:

a) HAND SPRAYING TREATMENT BEFORE LAYING THE SLAB. The site should be prepared in accordance with

Australian Standard AS 2870, or Australian Standard AS 3660.1 as appropriate. Where loose or porous sands occur

the site should be moistened with water immediately prior to treatment with TITAN CHLORPYRIFOS PC 450

INSECTICIDE, as this will help prevent loss of emulsion through 'piping' or excessive percolation. It will also assist

with lateral dispersion. Use a shrouded rose head shower nozzle operated at 170 kPa to apply the required rate of

TITAN CHLORPYRIFOS PC 450 INSECTICIDE in a volume of 5L of emulsion/m

. To obtain better coverage in

difficult soil types, it may be necessary to adjust the volume being applied (see APPLICATION VOLUME section

under GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS). Ensure application is made under conditions which prevent off-target drift.

Immediately following treatment (I.e. on the same day), the moisture membrane should be placed over the treated

soil to prevent disturbance of the termiticidal barrier.

b) External Barrier: On completion of the building, an external barrier should be installed around the perimeter. The

external barrier 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 horizontal barrier is an essential part of the treatment when relying on a chemical soil barrier to provide

the full termite management system.

An external horizontal barrier only, is 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).

(i) Horizontal Barrier: Do not use horizontal barriers around homes or in residential areas, or in public spaces and

publicly accessible commercial areas. Use a rose head shower nozzle operated at 170 kPa to apply the required rate

of 1.5L of the correctly diluted TITAN CHLORPYRIFOS PC 450 INSECTICIDE per lineal metre (150mm wide) to soil

loosened to a depth of at least 80 mm (see APPLICATION VOLUME section).

(ii) Vertical Barrier: The vertical barrier should be at least 150 mm 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 TITAN CHLORPYRIFOS PC 450 INSECTICIDE emulsion at 100 L per cubic metre of backfill soil, this equates

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

deeper than 1OOmm, 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

Use a soil injector with a B&G or similar multi-directional tip operated at 170 kPa and insert the rod to the foundation

foot as close as possible to the foundation wall ensuring the chemical is applied during insertion and withdrawal. The

4-way tip needs to be rotated during the application through 90 degrees and the 3-way tip through 120 degrees.

SUSPENDED FLOORS

Install horizontal and vertical barriers as specified in AS 3660.1 to abut all substructure walls, stumps, piers, pipes

and wastes using the techniques described above for external barriers around concrete slabs. Apply the required

rate of TITAN CHLORPYRIFOS PC 450 INSECTICIDE in a total volume of 5L of emulsion/m

(see APPLICATION

VOLUME section). If the barrier is disturbed by any means, retreat to restore continuity. Where the subfloor crawl

space is less than 400mm the soil barrier must cover all areas of the sub-floor soil.

Note: It is unnecessary to treat the entire sub-floor soil where there is access for maintenance and inspection.

APPLICATION VOLUME: PRE· CONSTRUCTION

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

CHLORPYRIFOS PC 450 INSECTICIDE 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 chemical

barriers in exposed soil. It is not permitted when injecting through the slab or into sealed areas.

APPLICATION EQUIPMENT

Hand Spraying

For hand spraying use a rose head shrouded nozzle operated 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. Reticulation System Application

A horizontal barrier may be applied under a concrete slab through a previously installed, full under slab Altis®,

Slabset or Termguard® system; or a reticulation system which meets the requirements of AS Series 3660. The

reticulation system used must be able to apply TITAN CHLORPYRIFOS PC 450 INSECTICIDE at the required

application rates to the required area (ie as per the label directions for horizontal and vertical barriers and AS 3660

Series). The application of TITAN CHLORPYRIFOS PC 450 INSECTICIDE through reticulation systems must be

carried out by an appropriately licensed operator and installed as per the system's installation manual. The actual

treatment should be applied as soon as possible after laying the slab, but not within 28 days. Subsequent treatments

to replenish the treated soil barrier can be made when considered necessary.

Altis: Use 110 mL of TITAN CHLORPYRIFOS PC 450 INSECTICIDE per 10L of water and apply the mixture at 10

. Slabset (Not approved for use in WA) and Termguard: Use 110mL of TITAN CHLORPYRIFOS PC 450

INSECTICIDE per 5L of water and apply the mixture at 5 L/m

APPLICATION VOLUME: POST· CONSTRUCTION

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

CHLORPYRIFOS PC 450 INSECTICIDE 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 chemical

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 1OOmm 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).

(i) Horizontal Barrier: Use a rose head shower nozzle operated at 170 kPa to apply the required rate of 1.5L of the

correctly diluted TITAN CHLORPYRIFOS PC 450 INSECTICIDE per lineal metre (150mm wide) to soil loosened to a

depth of at least 80 mm (see APPLICATION VOLUME section). Not for home, garden, residential or publicly

accessible areas

(ii) Vertical Barrier: The vertical barrier should be at least 150 mm 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 TITAN

CHLORPYRIFOS PC 450 INSECTICIDE emulsion at 100L per cubic metre of backfill soil, this equates to 1.5L of

emulsion/near 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 AS 3660 to adjoin all substructure

walls, stumps, piers, pipes and wastes using the techniques described for external barriers around concrete slabs

(See Existing Structures section.)

Existing Conditions Aggravated by Exposure:

No information available

Additional toxicological information:

The Australian Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) for chlorpyrifos for a human is 0.003 mg/kg/day, set for the

public for daily, lifetime exposure. This is based on the NOEL of 0.03 mg/kg/day, the level determined to show

no effects during long term exposure for the most sensitive indicators and the most sensitive species. (Ref:

Comm. Dept. of Health and Ageing Office of Chemical Safety, 'ADI List', June 2014).

Chlorpyrifos primarily affects the nervous system through inhibition of cholinesterase, an enzyme required for

proper nerve functioning. Chlorpyrifos is readily absorbed into the bloodstream through the gastrointestinal

tract if it is ingested, through the lungs if it is inhaled, or through the skin if there is dermal exposure. In

humans, chlorpyrifos and its principal metabolites are eliminated rapidly.

12 . ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Ecotoxicity:

Serious hazard to wildlife and bees.

Aquatic toxicity:

Very Toxic to aquatic life with long lasting effects.

Persistence and Degradability:

Persistent in soils. Half-life in soil normally ranges from 60 to 120 days, though may be as long as a year,

depending on soil type.

Bioaccumulative Potential:

No information available

Mobility in Soil:

Due to relatively low solubility and strong potential to adsorb to soil, chlorpyrifos is immobile in soils.

Other adverse effects:

No information available
