GROUP 1B INSECTICIDE

For the control of certain insect pests of fruit, vegetables, field crops and pasture and other situations and for the post-construction management of subterranean termites in accord with AS3660.2 and other insect pests as specified in the Directions for Use Table.
THIS PRODUCT IS TOO HAZARDOUS FOR USE BY HOUSEHOLDERS. HOUSEHOLDERS MUST NOT USE THIS PRODUCT IN OR AROUND THE HOME.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE AS A TERMITICIDE:
MANAGEMENT OF SUBTERRANEAN TERMITES (All States, except Tasmania)
Restraints:
DO NOT apply to soils if excessively wet, immediately after heavy rain or if heavy rains are expected within 48 hours to avoid
run-off of chemical.
DO NOT use at less than indicated label rates.
DO NOT use in cavity walls, except for direct treatment of nest.
DO NOT use on alkaline soils in SA (use on neutral or acidic soils only) or on dolomite-based sub-slab bedding material.
RATES OF APPLICATION IMPORTANT: STRIKE-OUT 500 EC 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.

Situation: Installing a chemical soil barrier around and under buildings.
Rate: Horizontal Barriers: 100 mL/m2
Vertical Barriers: 2 L/m3
Critical comments: Horizontal Barriers: Use 100 mL of STRIKE-OUT 500 EC per 5 L of water and apply the mixture (emulsion) at a rate of 5 L/m2.
Vertical Barriers: Use 2 L of STRIKE-OUT 500 EC per 100 L of water and apply the mixture at a rate of 100 L/m3.
See APPLICATION VOLUME section in GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS for further information.
200 mL/10 L is equivalent to a 1% active ingredient emulsion.
See Service requirement in GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS for expected barrier life.

Situation: Installing a chemical soil barrier around and under buildings north of the Tropic of Capricorn or where Mastotermes
darwiniensis is a concern.
Rate: Horizontal Barriers: 200 mL/m2
Vertical Barriers: 4 L/m3
Critical comments: This is an optional high rate for use north of the Tropic of Capricorn, or where M. darwiniensis is a concern.
Horizontal Barriers: Use 200 mL of STRIKE-OUT 500 EC per 5 L of water and apply the mixture (emulsion) at a rate of 5 L/m2.
Vertical Barriers: Use 4 L of STRIKE-OUT 500 EC per 100 L of water and apply the mixture at a rate of 100 L/m3.
See APPLICATION VOLUME section in GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS for further information.
4 L/100 L is equivalent to a 2% active ingredient emulsion.
See Service requirement in GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS for expected barrier life.

Situation: Installing a chemical soil barrier around new and existing poles, eg. transmission and building poles, fence posts and palings.
Rate:200 mL/10 L of water or creosote
Critical comments: 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 300 mm and minimum width of 150 mm. Use 100 L of emulsion per m3 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 50 mm 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

Situation: Treatment of termite nest or colony.
Rate: 100 mL/10 L of water
Critical comments: 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.
Refer to Australian Standard Series AS 3660.

NOT TO BE USED FOR ANY PURPOSE OR IN ANY MANNER CONTRARY TO THIS LABEL UNLESS AUTHORISED UNDER APPROPRIATE LEGISLATION.

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 multidirectional 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 5 L/m2 would cause run-off, it may be necessary to apply a volume of emulsion less than 5 L/m2. When reducing the total volume of emulsion used, increase the concentration accordingly to match the label rate by mixing the required amount of STRIKE-OUT 500 EC per m2 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/m2 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 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 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 STRIKE-OUT 500 EC per lineal metre (150 mm wide) to soil loosened to a depth of approximately 80 mm (see APPLICATION VOLUME Section).
ii) 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 300 mm deep) and rodding into the base of the trench may be necessary.
Apply STRIKE-OUT 500 EC emulsion at 100 L per cubic metre of backfill soil, this equates to 1.5 L of emulsion/linear metre of a
trench 150 mm wide and 100 mm deep. Where the required vertical barrier is deeper than 100 mm, 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:
150 mm
Clay Loams: 200 mm
Loams Sands: 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.)

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 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. STRIKE-OUT 500 EC 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, STRIKE-OUT 500 EC 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, STRIKE-OUT 500 EC 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, STRIKE-OUT 500 EC 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.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS – For use as a Termiticide
MIXING
Half fill the spray tank with water (or creosote where applicable) and add the required amount of STRIKE-OUT 500 EC, 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 STRIKE-OUT 500 EC, 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.

PRECAUTIONS
DO NOT apply inside buildings except as a crack and crevice treatment.
DO NOT apply to surface areas such as interior floors and walls.

RE-ENTRY TO TREATED AREAS
DO NOT permit re-occupation of any premises until treated areas are completely dry (normally 3-4 hours) and adequately ventilated.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS – FOR USE AS AN INSECTICIDE
Thorough coverage is essential.
For application by aircraft apply in 10-50 L of water/ha.

INSECTICIDE RESISTANCE WARNING
For insecticide resistance management Strike -Out ® 500 EC Insecticide is a Group 1B insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to Strike-Out 500 EC 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 Strike-Out 500 EC or other Group 1B insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of Strike-Out 500 EC on resistant individuals could be significantly reduced.
Since the occurrence of resistant insects is difficult to detect prior to use, Adama Australia Pty. Ltd. accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of Strike-Out 500 EC to control resistant insects.
Strike-Out 500 EC may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For further information contact your local supplier, Adama representative or local agricultural department agronomist.

MIXING
Spray: Add the required amount of product slowly to water in the spray tank whilst stirring or agitating. Agitate mixture during spraying.

APPLICATION
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.

Tree and Vine Crops
Dilute Spraying
Use a sprayer designed to apply high volumes of water up to the point of run-off and matched to the crop being sprayed. Set up and operate the sprayer to achieve even coverage throughout the crop canopy. Apply sufficient water to cover the crop to the point of run-off. Avoid excessive run-off. The required water volume may be determined by applying different test volumes, using different settings on the sprayer, from industry guidelines or expert advice. Add the amount of product specified in the Directions For Use table for each 100 L of water. Spray to the point of run-off. The required dilute spray volume will change and the sprayer set up and operation may also need to be changed, as the crop grows.
Concentrate Spraying
Use a sprayer designed and set up for the concentrate spraying (that is a sprayer which applies water volumes less than those required to reach the point of run-off) and matched to the crop being sprayed. Set up and operate the sprayer to achieve even coverage throughout the crop canopy using your chosen water volume. Determine an appropriate dilute spray volume (See Dilute Spraying above) for the crop canopy. This is needed to calculate the concentrate mixing rate. The mixing rate for concentrate can then be calculated in the following way:
EXAMPLE ONLY
1. Dilute spray volume as determined above: For example 1500 L/ha.
2. Your chosen concentrate spray volume: For example 500 L/ha.
3. The concentration factor in this example is: 3x (ie 1500 L ÷ 500 L = 3).
4. If the dilute label rate is 10 mL/100 L, then the concentrate rate becomes 3 x10, that is 30 mL/100 L of concentrate spraying.
The chosen spray volume, amount of product per 100 L of water, and the sprayer set up and operation may need to be changed as the crop grows.
For further information on concentrate spraying, users are advised to consult relevant industry guidelines, undertake appropriate competency training and follow industry Best Practices.

SOIL APPLICATION
In-furrow: Apply as a band spray to the open furrow at planting. Spray the entire furrow width using a nozzle located directly behind the seed tube. Ensure all spray is directed into the furrow contacting bottom, sides and all soil drawn into the furrow at closure.
Use a minimum of 20 L of water/ha. Use the higher rate under extreme population numbers.

Bait Application
Bran bait: Mix 10 mL/kg of bran using sufficient water to give a moist crumb structure. Allow to stand for 2-3 hours before application. Gloves should be worn when preparing and applying the bait.
Cracked wheat or cracked sorghum bait: Mix the required volume of this product and sunflower oil together. Then, add to the wheat or sorghum, mixing thoroughly. Gloves should be worn when preparing the bait.

COMPATIBILITY
Strike-Out 500 EC is compatible with a range of herbicides, insecticides and miticides, and fungicides. As formulations of other manufacturers’ products are beyond the control of Adama Australia Pty. Ltd. all mixtures should be tested prior to mixing commercial quantities.
Strike-Out 500 EC is NOT compatible with 2,4-D, dicamba, MCPA, Tordon* 75-D, Tordon* 242, copper or sulphur.

RE-ENTRY PERIOD
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.
