LUMBER AND LOGS - TERMITES, ANTS, AND BEETLES
GENERAL USE INFORMATION
PERMETHRIN 3.2 EC is toxic to fish. Exercise care when making applications near ponds, lakes, streams, reservoirs and other aquatic environments where fish are present.
For advice concerning current control practices with relation to specific local conditions, consult your local State Cooperative Extension or regulatory agencies.
PERMETHRIN 3.2 EC is formulated as an emulsifiable concentrate (EC) formulation and is to be diluted with water and applied as an emulsion. When tank mixing as an emulsion with other products, observe all precautions and limitations on the labels of each product in the mixture.
PERMETHRIN 3.2 EC can be tank-mixed with natural pyrethrin-containing products or Insect Growth Regulators (IGRs). Do not tank mix with dichlorvos (DDVP) or other fumigant products.
DIRECTIONS FOR APPLICATION
Unless otherwise directed by registered supplemental labeling, follow the Directions for Use in each crop group section.
PERMETHRIN 3.2 EC is a 3.2 pounds per gallon formulation of the insecticide permethrin. Apply PERMETHRIN 3.2 EC when insects appear or feeding is noticed. The higher rate should be used as pest populations increase. Repeat the application as necessary to maintain control. Use sufficient water to obtain full coverage. With the exception of crops listed below, rotational crops should not be planted within 60 days of last application.
The label must be in the possession of the user at the time of application.
TREATMENT OF PRECONSTRUCTION LUMBER AND LOGS
PERM-UP 3.2 EC should be diluted . To prepare the spray, dilute PERM-UP 3.2 EC refer to the the spray dilution chart on the label.
Directions for Application
To protect unseasoned lumber and logs from wood destroying insects, such as Termites, Carpenter Ants and Beetles (Ambrosia, Powder-post, Old house borers and others), totally treat wood with a 0.5% to 1.0% solution of PERMETHRIN 3.2 EC. This solution can be applied by various methods including spraying, brushing, dipping, and pressure treatment. Frequent monitoring of dip and pressure systems are necessary to insure that the desired level of PERMETHRIN 3.2 EC is maintained. Wood can be handled after treatment when dry.
1. For dip treatments, the wood should be totally submersed in the solution until thoroughly wet and then allowed to dry in a suitable location. Dipping solutions to which PERMETHRIN 3.2 EC has been added should be agitated before use if left unused for long periods of time. Sediment, debris and other deposits should be periodically cleaned from the tank.
2. For pressure treatments the wood should be placed in the treatment chamber, the PERMETHRIN 3.2 EC solution added and the system pressurized up to 250 psi for up to one hour depending on the density and type of wood treated. After the pressure is released and the system drained, the wood should be placed in a suitable location for drying.
3. For spray treatments, the wood should be sprayed thoroughly including back and ends.
4. For brush treatments, all parts of wood surfaces should be thoroughly treated.
