Cyper TC | Cypermethrin | Soil Poisoning | Pre & Post Construction
Cyper TC is a pre / post treatment product for subterranean termite, beetle, and other wood destroying insect controls. It also can be used as a barrier treatment for other crawling and flying insects. Cyper TC is almost odorless and protects up to 90 days. Cyper TC is not permitted to be used for a termite treatment inside a property with a well or cistern.
Subterranean Termite Control: apply 0.25%-0.50% solution to establish subsurface termite control barriers as specified on product labeling. Avoid contamination of public and private water supplies by following thse precautions: 1. Use anti-backflow equipment or procedures to prevent spillage of pesticide back into water supplies. 2. Do not treat soil beneath structures that contain wells or cisterns. 3. Care must be taken to avoid runoff. Do not treat soil that is water-saturated or frozen. 4. Do not treat while precipitation is occurring. 5. Care should be taken that the treatment solution is not introduced into the gravel and/or pipe drainage system which may be location on the exterior of the foundation in close proximity to the footing of the structure.
Mix the termiticide in the following manner: 1. Fill tank 1/4 to 1/3 full with water. 2. Start pump to begin by-pass agitation and place end of treating tool in tank to allow circulation through hose. 3. Add appropriate amount of CYPER TC Insecticide. 4. Add remaining amount of water. 5. Let pump run and allow recirculation through the hose for 2 to 3 minutes.
Horizontal barriers may be established in areas intended for covering such as floors, porches, and other critical areas. Application shall be made by a low-pressure spray (less than 50 p.s.i at the nozzle). Apply the emulsion at the rate of 1 gallon per 10 square feet to fill dirt. If fill is washed gravel or other coarse material, apply the emulsion at the rate of 1-1/2 gallons per 10 square feet. This is not necessary if foundation walls have been installed around the treated soil.
Vertical barriers may be established around the base of foundations, plumbing, back-filled soil against foundation walls, and other critical areas; applications may be made by trenching and rodding into the trench. Apply the emulsion at the rate of 4 gallons per 10 linear feet per foot of depth. When treating foundations deeper than 4 feet, apply the termiticide as the backfill is being replaced or if the construction contractor fails to notify the applicator to permit this, treat the foundation to a minimum depth of 4 feet after the backfill has been installed. the applicator must trench and rod into the trench or trench along the foundation walls and around pillars and other foundation elements, at the rate prescribed from grade to minimum depth of 4 feet. When the top of the footing is exposed, the applicator must treat the soil adjacent to the footing to a depth not to exceed the bottom of the footing. However, in no case should a structure be treated below the footing. A trench need not to be wider than 6 inches from the base of a shallow trench to the top of the footings. Low-pressure spray (less than 50 p.s.i. at the nozzle) may be used to treat soil which will be replaced in the trench. Mix the emulsion with the soil as it is being replaced in the trench. Hollow Masonry Units of the Foundation: Drill and treat voids in multiple masonry elements of the structure extending from the structure to the soil in order to create a continuous treatment barrier in the area to be treated. Apply at the rate of 2 gallons of emulsion per 10 linear feet of footing using a nozzle pressure of less than 25 p.s.i. When using this treatment, access holes must be drilled below the sill plate and should be as close to possible to the footing as is practical. Treatment of voids in block or rubble foundation walls must be closely examined; applicators must inspect area of possible runoff as a precaution against application leakage in the treated areas. Crawl Spaces: Apply at the rate of 4 gallons of emulsion per 10 linear feet per foot of depth from grade to the top of the footing. Application may be made by trenching and rodding into the trench or trenching. If the footing is exposed at or above grade, application should be made with special care to avoid washout around footing. Treatment should include both sides of foundation and around all piers and pipes. Rod holes should be spaced to provide a continuous chemical barrier. trench need not b wider than 6 inches nor below the foundation. The emulsion should be mixed with the soil as it is being replaced in the trench. Please refer to and follow the instructions on the Product label.
