FOAM APPLICATIONS

General Information

IN-LINE-INJECTION: For the desired application rate, use the proportional injector mixing table to determine the amount of PREMISE 2 Insecticide for a given injection volume of finished emulsion.

CONVERSION KEY: 128 fl oz = 1 gal, 16 fl oz= 1 pint, 8 pints = 1 gal, 1 fl oz = 29.5 mL

APPLICATION VOLUME

It is recommended that application volumes described in the PREMISE 2 Insecticide \"DIRECTIONS FOR USE\" be used whenever possible. However, where soil conditions will not accept application of 4 gallons of PREMISE 2 Insecticide per 10 linear feet, twice the PREMISE 2 Insecticide concentration may be applied in 2 gallons of solution per 10 linear feet. For example, if 0.05% is the correct use rate to be applied in 4 gallons of water, then 2 gallons of 0.1% dilution may be used per 10 linear feet to deliver an equivalent amount of PREMISE 2 Insecticide per unit of soil.

RETREATMENT

Retreatment for subterranean termites can only be performed if there is clear evidence of reinfestation or disruption of the treated zone due to construction, excavation, or landscaping and/or evidence of the breakdown of the termiticide treated zone in the soil. These vulnerable or reinfested areas may be retreated in accordance with application techniques described in the product’s labeling. The timing and type of these retreatments will vary, depending on factors such as termite pressure, soil types, soil conditions and other factors which may reduce the effectiveness of the treated zone. Retreatment may be made as either a spot or complete treatment.

When a structure is not known to be reinfested and the treated zone is not disturbed, but where the structure was last treated five or more years ago, retreatment may be performed if, in the judgement of the applicator, it is necessary to ensure adequate protection of the structure. In determining the timing of any retreatment, the applicator should consider efficacy and/or degradation data and/or site-specific conditions and previ- ous experience that indicate a vulnerability of the structure to termite attack.

Annual retreatment of the structure is prohibited unless there is clear evidence that reinfestation or treated zone disruption has occurred. When another registered termite control product/system is used as the primary treatment for prevention or control of subterranean termites and is applied to all label-specified areas, PREMISE 2 Insecticide may be applied as a spot application in a secondary treatment to critical areas of the structure including plumbing and utility entry sites, bath traps, expansion joints, foundation cracks, the outside foundation wall, and areas of known or suspected activity at either a pre-construction or post-construction timing. These secondary treatments must be applied in amounts and concentration in accordance with label directions relevant to the treatment area(s) to receive the secondary treatment.

PRECAUTIONS AND RESTRICTIONS FOR APPLICATIONS

After treatment, plug and fill all holes drilled in concrete slab areas of the building with a suitable sealant. Do not apply solution until location of heat pipes, ducts, water and sewer lines and electrical conduits are known and identified. Caution must be taken to avoid puncturing and injection into these structural elements.

Do not treat within a distance of one foot out from the drip line of edible plants.

Avoid contamination of public and private water supplies.

Use anti-backflow equipment or an air gap on filling hoses.

Consult State, Federal, or local authorities for information regarding the approved treatment practices for areas in close proximity to potable water supplies.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

FOAM APPLICATIONS

Construction practices, soil subsidence and other factors may create situations in which a continuous chemical treated zone cannot be achieved using conventional treatment alone. In situations where necessary, conventional application methods can be supplemented through use of foam generating equipment, or similar devices, to provide a continuous treated zone.

Foam application may be made alone or in combination with conventional application methods, provided that the labeled amount of active ingredient per unit area is used.

Foam Application Use Directions: Mix appropriate concentration of PREMISE 2 Insecticide in water and add the manufacturer’s recommended quantity of foam agent to the PREMISE 2 INSECTICIDE solution (see table in the labe for foaming and rates recommendations).

Apply a sufficient volume of PREMISE 2 Insecticide foam alone or in combination with liquid solution to provide a continuous treated zone at the recommended rate for specific application sites.

Depending on the circumstances, foam applications may be used alone or in combination with liquid solution applications. Applications may be made behind veneers, piers, chimney bases, into rubble foundations, into block voids or structural voids, wall voids, under slabs, stoops, porches, or to the soil in crawlspaces, and other similar voids.

Foam and liquid applications must be consistent with volume and active ingredient instructions in order to ensure proper application has been made. The volume and amount of active ingredient are essential to an effective treatment. At least 75% of the gallons of Premise 2 must be applied as a typical liquid treatment. The remaining 25% or less gallons is delivered to appropriate locations using a foam application.

NOTE: When foam is used solely to kill subterranean termites in above ground locations (such as feeding galleries in wooden framing, or in voids with framed walls), and whenever the target pest is other than subterranean termites (drywood termites, beetles, ants, etc.), dilute solutions of PREMISE may be expanded by foaming without concentrating the PREMISE solution as previously described for soil applications. Add the manufacturers’ recommended volume of foaming agent to produce foam of the desired expansion ratio. Use application tips and methods suitable to the site and pest.
