APPLICATION FOR CONTROL OF SUBTERRANEAN TERMITES
Maxxthor SC, in the form of a dilute insecticidal solution, prevents and controls subterranean termite infestations in and around structures and other items by creating a continuous chemically treated zone (horizontal and/or vertical as needed) between the wood and other cellulose material in the structure and termite colonies in the soil. In order to establish a barrier between the wood in the structure and the termites in the soil, adequately disperse the solution of this product in the soil. Maxxthor SC can also used to directly treat termite infested wood, however such treatments should be considered to be supplementary to, and not a replacement for, soil based applications of this product.
To effectively control termites with this product the service technician should be familiar with current termite control practices including trenching, rodding, sub-slab and void injection, soil surface fan spraying, excavated soil treatment and brush, spray and injection applications to wood.
Correct use of these techniques is necessary to effectively control infestations by subterranean termites such as Coptotermes, Heterotermes, Reticulitermes and Zootermopsis. The service technician should consider the biology and behavior of the termite species to be controlled to determine which control practices to use.
Treatment standards and procedures for subterranean termite control may vary due to regulations, water table level, structure design, soil types, construction practices and other factors. For advice concerning current control practices with respect to specific local conditions, consult resources in structural pest control and state cooperative extension and regulatory agencies. Follow all federal, state and local regulations and treatment standards for protection of a structure from subterranean termites.
Effective termite control may also include mechanical alteration of the structure. Elimination of leaks or points of moisture accumulation within or on the exterior of the structure that result in an increase in the moisture content of wooden structural components is advised. Removal of nonessential cellulose containing materials that are in contact with the ground under or around the structure can reduce termite-foraging in the area. When untreated wooden parts of the structure touch the mound and such contact cannot be broken, creating a barrier between the soil and such components using a solution of the product may protect the components and the structure against termite attack.
Maxxthor SC is labeled for use against subterranean termites as a 0.06% - 0.12% in water, however the 0 .06% finished solution should be used for typical control situations. When difficult or problem soil or construction types are encountered, it may be necessary to use 0.12% Maxxthor SC mixed in reduced volumes of water. All treatment directions contained in this Label may not be necessary to provide adequate protection against termites.
Avoid contamination of water supplies due to backflow under reduced water system pressure by using anti-backflow equipment or procedures to prevent siphoning of any solution back into a water supply. Do not contaminate cisterns or wells. Do not treat soil that is water saturated or frozen. Do not treat while precipitation is occurring. Do not apply solution to an area or site if the soil at the area or site is in such a state or condition that runoff or movement of the solution from the treated area or site is likely to occur. Consult state and local specifications for recommended distances of wells fmm treated areas, or if such regulations do not exist, refer to Federal Housing Administration Specifications (H.U.D.) for guidance.
For the purposes of this label and its directions, crawl spaces are to be considered to be inside of the structure
Mixing Directions For Maxxthor SC For Use As A Termiticide
Mix Maxxthor SC for use as a termiticide in the following manner:
1. Fill tank 1/4 to 1/3 full.
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 Maxxthor SC.
4. Add remaining amount of water.
5. Let pump run and allow recirculation through the hose for 2 to 3 minutes.
Maxxthor SC may also be mixed into full tanks of water, but substantial agitation is required to ensure uniformity of the solution.
Dilution of Maxxthor SC for Use as a Termiticide
For termite control, use rates for Maxxthor SC are expressed and the solution is mixed according to the percentage (%) concentration it forms when mixed in water. Use the mixing table or alternately the formulas below to determine the amount of Maxxthor SC to add to any quantity of water.
To prepare a 0.06% water solution, ready to use, dilute 3 quarts of Maxxthor SC with 99.25 gallons of water. To prepare a 0.12% water solution, ready to use, dilute 6 quarts of Maxxthor SC with 98.5 gallons of water.
Mixing Table for Maxxthor SC for Use as a Termiticide
*Only use the 0.12% rate in accordance with the Adjustments to Application Volume section. May also be used in accordance with the FOAM APPLICATION and APPLICATIONS TO PROTECT UNDERGROUND ITEMS FROM TERMITE ATTACK sections.
Calculating an Amount of Maxxthor SC to Mix
To mix any amount of Maxxthor SC for termite control, determine:
A = Units of water into which the Maxxthor SC will be mixed. Express any partial units as decimal fractions (1/2 = .5). Any unit of measure, such as gallons or quarts, can be used for A. Answers to equations below are in same unit as A.
Maxxthor SC to add to A for 0.06% =A / 132.3
Maxxthor SC to add to A for 0.12% =A / 65.7
To convert gallons to fluid ounces, multiply number of gallons X 128
128 fluid ounces = 16 cups = 8 pints = 4 quarts = 1 gallon
32 fluid ounces = 1 quart
To provide maximum control and protection against termite infestatlon, apply the specified volume of the finished water solution containing the specified amount of Maxxthor SC as set out below or as otherwise directed in this label.
Prescribed Horizontal Barrier Rate: Unless otherwise directed, horizontal barriers are created by applying a 0.06% solution at a rate of one gallon of solution per 10 square feet. (One gallon of 0.06% solution contains 1.0 fluid ounce of Maxxthor SC.)
Prescribed Vertical Barrier Rate: Unless otherwise directed, vertical barriers are created by applying a 0.06% solution at a rate of four gallons of solution per 10 linear feet per foot of depth.
(Four gallons of 0.06% solution contains 4.0 fluid ounces of Maxxthor SC.)
Adjustments to Application Volume
If soil will not accept the labeled application volumes, the volume may be reduced provided there is a corresponding increase in concentration so that the amount of active ingredient applied to the soil remains the same.
Note: Large reductions of application volume reduce the likelihood of obtaining a continuous barrier.
Variance is allowed when volume and concentration are consistent with label directed rates and a continuous barrier can still be achieved. When volume is reduced, the spacing of holes created for sub slab injection and soil rodding may need to be reduced to account for decreased dispersion of the solution in the soil.
For example, adjust the amount of solution applied to deliver a horizontal barrier of 10 square feet from 1 gallon to as low as 0.5 gallons and as high as 2 gallons while maintaining the amount of Maxxthor SC (1 fluid ounce) applied per 10 square feet.
For example, adjust the amount of solution applied to deliver a vertical barrier 10 feet long by one foot deep from 4 gallons to as low as 2 gallons and as high as 8 gallons while maintaining the amount of Maxxthor SC (4 fluid ounces) applied per 10 linear feet.
Pre-construction treatment. Do not apply at a lower dosage and/or this label for applications prior to the installation of the finished grade.
Prior to each application, applicators must notify the general contractor, construction superintendent. or similar responsible party, of the intended termiticide application and intended sites of application and instruct the responsible person to notify construction workers and other individuals to leave the area to be treated during application and until the termiticide is absorbed into the soil.
Effective control of subterranean termites can be accomplished during construction by using a 0.06% solution of Maxxthor SC to establish vertical and/or horizontal barriers between the structure and the soil as directed. To meet current termite proofing requirements, follow the procedures In the latest edition of the Housing and Urban Development Minimum Property Standards.
Horizontal Barriers Under Slabs on Ground Including Basements
Create a horizontal barrier on the entire surface of soil or substrate that will be covered by a slab, including, but not limited to, slab floors, garages, carports, basements, porches and entrance platforms by treating the soil or substrate with the solution at the Prescribed Horizontal Barrier Rate.
If the fill under the slab is a coarse material such as washed gravel, make sure that a sufficient enough amount of dilution is applied that the solution reaches the soil beneath the fill.
Apply solution using a coarse spray nozzle. If the slab over the treated area will not be poured on the same day as the application (and there are no foundation walls in place around the treated soil) cover treated soil with a waterproof barrier such as polyethylene sheeting.
Create a vertical barrier along the inside and outside of foundation walls, around piers, plumbing and utility service entrances and other points of possible future termite access and entry by treating the soil at these points at the Prescribed Vertical Barrier Rate. When trenching and rodding into the trench, or trenching alone, it is important that the solution reaches the top of the footing. Rod holes must be spaced so as to achieve a continuous termiticidal barrier, but they should in no case be more than 12 inches apart. Trenches need not be wider than 6 inches. Mix the solution into the soil as it is being replaced in the trench. Care should be taken to avoid washing soil out from around footings thereby undermining the stability of the structure. An inside vertical barrier may not be required for a monolithic slab.
If distance from final grade to top of footing will be less than four feet, it is permissible to wait until final grade is established to apply the vertical barrier. When treating foundations deeper than 4 feet, apply the termitictde as the backfill is being replaced, or if the construction contractor fails to notify the applicator in time to permit this, treat the foundation to a minimum depth of 4 feet after the backfill has been installed. The applicator must trench and md into the trench or trench along the foundation walls and around pillars and other foundation elements, at the rate prescribed from grade to a 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.
Hollow Block Foundations and Voids
Hollow block foundations and voids may be treated at a rate of 2 gallons of solution per 10 linear feet to create a continuous treated zone within the voids at the footing.
POST CONSTRUCTION TREATMENT
Do not apply treatment until the identity and location of all wells, radiant heat pipes, water and sewer lines, electrical conduits and sub-slab heating and air conditioning ducts is established.
Caution must be taken to avoid puncturing these elements and/or injecting solution into them. All holes in commonly occupied areas into which material has been applied must be plugged. Plugs must be of a non-cellulose material or covered by an impervious, non-cellulose material.
Vertical Barrier Depth: For applications made after the final grade is installed the applicator must trench and rod into the trench or trench along the foundation walls and around pillars and other foundation elements and treat at the rate prescribed fmm grade to the top of the footing. When the footing is more than four (4) feet below grade, the applicator must trench and rod into the trench or trench along the foundation walls and treat at the rate prescribed to a minimum depth of four feet.
The actual depth of treatment will vary depending on the soil type, degree of compaction, and location of termite activity. 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.
Structures Containing Concrete Slabs on Ground (Monolithic/Floating/Supported) including Basements
To make an application beneath existing slabs, it may be necessary to drill holes in the slab or adjacent foundation and to apply solution. Holes should be spaced such that when treatment is applied through them, a continuous treated zone is applied beneath the slab.
Vertical Barriers Along Exterior of Foundation Walls: Trench and rod into the trench or trench along the outside of foundation walls and treat at the Prescribed Vertical Barrier Rate to the depth specified under Vertical Barrier Depth. Where physical obstructions such as concrete walkways adjacent to foundation elements or soil type and/or conditions make trenching prohibitive, treatment may be made by rodding alone.
Vertical Barriers Along Interior of Foundation Wall: Vertical barriers may be established on the interior side of foundation walls by sub slab injection of the solution at the Prescribed Vertical Barrier Rate. Injection openings can be drilled either vertically through the slab along the interior of the foundation wall or horizontally from the exterior through the foundation wall low enough on the wall to allow for the deposition of the solution beneath the slab along the interior side of the foundation wall. Drill holes should be spaced so as to achieve a continuous chemical barrier but in no case farther apart than 12 inches. Special care must be taken to distribute the solution evenly.
Vertical barriers may also be established beneath the slab along both sides of Interior footing supported walls, one side of interior partitions and along all cracks and expansion jornts and utility service entrances and bath traps.
Horizontal Barrier Beneath Slabs on Ground: Create a horizontal barrier by treating at the Prescribed Horizontal Barrier Rate beneath slabs by either drilling and long rodding from the exterior or by grid pattern drilling and injection vertically through the slab. Long rodding should be used only when grid pattern drilling and injection and horizontal short rodding and injection cannot be used to deliver the sub slab treatment.
Bath Traps: Exposed soil beneath and around areas where plumbing and utility services penetrate the stab should be treated at the rate of 1 gallon of solution per square foot of soil.
Structures Containing Accessible Crawl Spaces
For crawl spaces, apply vertical termitide barriers at the rate of 4 gallons of solution per 10 linear feet per foot of depth from grade to the top of the footing, or if the footing is more than 4 feet below grade, to a minimum depth of 4 feet. Apply by trenching and rodding into the trench, or trenching. Treat both sides of foundation and around all piers and pipes. Where physical obstructions such as concrete walkways adjacent to foundation elements prevent trenching, treatment may be made by rodding alone. When soil type and/or conditions make trenching prohibitive, rodding may be used.
When the top of the footing is exposed, the applicator must treat the soil adjacent to the foobng to a depth not to exceed the bottom of the footing. Read and follow the mixing and use direction section of the label if situations are encountered where the soil will not accept the full application volume.
1. Rod holes and trenches must not extend below the bottom of the footing.
2. Rod holes must be spaced so as to achieve a continuous termiticide barrier but in no case more than 12 inches apart.
3. Trenches must be a minimum of 6 inches deep or to the bottom of the footing, whichever is less, and need not be wider than 6 inches. When trenching in sloping (tiered) soil, the trench must be stepped to ensure adequate distribution and to prevent termiticde from running off. The solution must be mixed with the soil as it is replaced in the trench.
4. When treating plenums or crawl spaces, turn off the air circulation system of the structure until application has been completed and all solution has been absorbed by the soil.
Structures Containing Inaccessible Crawl Spaces
For inaccessible interior areas, such as areas where there is insufficient clearance between floor posts and ground surfaces to allow operator access, excavate, if possible, and treat according to the instructions for accessible crawl spaces. Otherwise, apply one, or a combination of the following two methods.
1. To establish a horizontal barrier, apply to the soil surface. 1 gallon of solution per 10 square feet overall using a nozzle pressure of less than 25 p.s.i. and a coarse application nozzle (e.g.. Delavan Type RD Raindrop. RD-7 or larger, or Spraying Systems Co. 8010LP TeeJet or comparable nozzle)
For an area that cannot be reached with the application wand, use one or more extension rods to make the application to the soil. Do not broadcast or power spray with higher pressures.
2. To establish a horizontal barrier, drill through the foundation wall or through the floor above and treat the soil perimeter at a rate of 1 gallon of solution per 10 square feet. Drill spacing must be at intervals not to exceed 16 inches. Many states have smaller intervals, so check state regulations which may apply.
When treating plenums or crawl spaces, turn off the air circulation system of the structure until application has been completed and all termiticide has been absorbed by the soil.
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 solution 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 as possible to the footing as is practical. Treatment of voids in block or rubble foundation walls must be closely monitored: Applicators must inspect areas of possible runoff as a precaution against application leakage in the treated areas. Some areas may not be treatable or may require mechanical alteration prior to treatment.
All leaks resulting in the deposition of termiticide in locations other than those prescribed on this label must be cleaned up prior to leaving the application site. Do not allow people or pets to contact contaminated areas or to reoccupy the contaminated areas of the structure until the cleanup is completed.
Note: When drilling veneer walls, care should be taken to not drill beyond the depth of the void behind the veneer into another construction layer behind the veneer. It is however permissible to drill through the veneer and into concrete blocks behind the veneer and to treat the veneer and the concrete blocks at the same time.
Note: Not for use in voids insulated with rigid foam.
TREATMENT OF STRUCTURES WITH WELLS AND CISTERNS
Do not contaminate wells or cistems.
Structures with Wells/Cistems Inside Foundations
Structures that contain wells or cisterns within the foundation of a structure can only be treated using the following techniques:
1. Do not treat soil while it is beneath or within the foundation or along the exterior perimeter of a structure that contains a well or cistern. The treated backfill method must be used if soil is removed and treated outside away from the foundation. The treated backfill technique is described as follows:
a. Trench and remove soil to be treated onto heavy plastic sheeting or similar material or into a wheelbarrow.
b. Treat the soil at the rate of 4 gallons of dilute solution per 10 linear feet per foot of depth of the trench, or 1 gallon per 1.0 cubic feet of soil. See Mixing Directions for Maxxthor SC for Use as a Temiticide section of the label. Mix thoroughly into the soil taking care to contain the liquid and prevent runoff or spillage.
c. After the treated soil has absorbed the solution, replace the soil into the trench.
2. Treat infested and/or damaged wood in place using an injection technique such as described in the APPLICATION TO WOOD INDOORS TO PROTECT AGAINST WOOD DESTROYING INSECTS or APPLICATION TO WOOD OUTDOORS TO PROTECT AGAINST WOOD DESTROYING INSECTS sections of this label.
Structures with Adjacent Well/Cistems and/or Other Water Bodies
Applicators must Inspect all structures with nearby water sources such as well, cisterns, surface ponds, streams, and other bodies of water and evaluate, at a minimum, the treatment recommendations listed below prior to making an application.
1. Prior to treatment, if feasible, expose the water pipe(s) coming from a well to the structure, if the pipe(s) enter the structure within 3 feet of grade.
2. Prior to treatment, applicators are advised to take precautions to limit the risk of applying the termiticide into subsurface drains that could empty into any bodies of water. These precautions include evaluating whether application of the termiticide to the top of the footer may result in contamination of the subsurface drain. Factors such as depth to the drain system and soil type and degree of compaction should be taken into account in determining the depth of treatment.
3 When appropriate (for example, on the water side of the structure), the treated backfill technique (described above) can also be used to minimize offsite movement of termiticide
Maxxthor SC, in the form of a foam, can be used to deliver Maxxthor SC as a termiticide any time it appears likely this form of delivery will improve the dispersal of Maxxthor SC into and within the intended target area. Foam can be particularly useful to deliver Maxxthor SC where it either cannot be depended upon to be delivered as just a solution or due to a need to reduce the amount of water used In order to avoid water damage to the target or adjacent areas. In some situations, for example under some slabs, a solution cannot be depended upon to disperse as completely as a foam because of deflection of the liquid stream or some other structural obstacle or defect.
Depending on the circumstances, foam applications of Maxxthor SC may be used alone or in combination with liquid solution applications, provided that the cumulative amount of active ingredient per unit of area applied is equivalent to that which would be contained in a 0.06% solution only application applied to the same area.
Using foam generating equipment, a solution of Maxxthor SC, ranging in concentration from 0.06% to 0.12%, may be converted into a foam according to the foaming agent and foaming equipment manufacturers recommendations.
First, form a solution of Maxxthor SC of the appropriate percentage concentration and volume.
Then add the recommended volume of a foaming agent. Verify that the foaming agent is compatible with Maxxthor SC.
Applications may be made behind veneers, piers, chimney bases, into rubble foundations, into block voids, structural voids or other similar voids, under slabs, stoops, porches or to the soil in crawlspaces.
Retreatments for subterranean termites can only be performed if there is clear evidence of
reinfestation or disruption of the barrier due to construction, excavation or landscaping and/or evidence of the breakdown of the termiticide barrier in the soil. These vulnerable or reinfested areas may be retreated in accordance with application techniques described in this product's labeling. The timing and type of these retreatment will vary, depending on factors such as termite pressure, soil types, soil conditions and other factors which may reduce the effectiveness of the barrier.
Annual retreatment of the structure is prohibited unless there is clear evidence that reinfestation or barrier disruption has occurred.
APPLICATION IN CONJUNCTION WITH TERMITE BAITS
Spot only applications of Mazzthor SC can be used as a supplement to termite baiting systems. For the purposes of this section, spot only applications are defined as the use of Maxxthor SC according to any of the permitted and applicable post-treatment application techniques contained in this label, alone or in combination, to the extent needed or deemed necessary or useful as an adjunct to a termite bait product labeled as a stand alone protection against termite attack. Stand alone termite bait product is defined as a termite bait product that provides sufficient structural protection when applied without other termite control products.
APPLICATION TO PROTECT UNDERGROUND ITEMS FROM
SUBTERRANEAN TERMITE ATTACK
To protect components installed underground such as wires, conduits, cables and pipes buried in soil against termite attack, create an envelope of Maxxthor SC treated soil around the components along the entire underground length of the component. First, treat soil through which components will be run with 0.06% to 0.12% solution of Maxxthor SC at a rate of 2 of solution per 10 linear feet. Install components, laying them on the treated soil. Cover components with untreated soil and then treat this covering soil using the same percent solution at 2 gallons of solution per 10 linear feet.
Underground components to be protected may be located within the foundation of a structure or outside of a structure such as within a utility right of way, for example. Do not treat items that are electrically energized at the time of application. If the soil will not absorb the indicated amount of solution, as little as 1 gallon of 0.12% solution per 10 linear feet can be used. Treat points where services emerge from the ground at a rate of 1 to 2 gallons of solution at the point of emergence.
APPLICATIONS TO PROTECT POLES, POSTS AND OTHER WOODEN
ITEMS FROM SUBTERRANEAN TERMITE ATTACK
Maxxthor SC can be used to protect the below ground portions of wooden structural components from termites. Form a treated zone around components below ground by vertically mdding the soil around their perimeter to a depth of six inches below their maximum depth of placement in the soil and applying a 0.06% solution of Mauthor SC at a rate of 0.4 gallons of solution per linear foot of perimeter around the component per foot of treated depth. Measure the perimeter of the component six inches from the outside of the component.
APPLICATIONS TO CONTROL WOOD INFESTING INSECTS
Mix and dilute Maxxthor SC according to the instructions contained in the APPLICATION FOR CONTROL OF SUBTERRANEAN TERMITES section.
APPLICATIONS TO CONTROL EXPOSED WOOD INFESTING
INSECTS LOCATED ABOVE GROUND
Maxxthor SC can be applied above ground as a non-soil treatment to control and kill exposed worker and winged reproductive (swarmer) termites and carpenter ants. This type of application is only supplementary to and should not be considered as a replacement for soil treatment In the case of termite infestation.
Apply a 0.06% solution as a general fan spray within attics, crawl spaces, unfinished basements and other void areas where termites have been found. Apply treatment directly to swarming termites and areas where they congregate.
APPLICATIONS TO TERMITE CARTON NESTS LOCATED IN ABOVE
GROUND WALL VOIDS
Apply a 0.06% solution of Maxxthor SC directly into above ground termite carton nests including nests located in wall voids using a directional injector. Apply as a solution or foam under pressure to distribute solution thoroughly throughout the nest. It may be necessary to inject solution at one or more points and at varying depths within the nest to adequately distribute solution within the interior of the nest.
APPLICATION TO WOOD INDOORS TO PROTECT AGAINST WOOD
A 0.06% solution of Maxxthor SC applied as a liquid or foam to wooden structural components within structures can be used to protect them against attack from wood infesting insects such as termites, carpenter ants and wood boring beetles or borers. This type of application is only supplementary to and should not be considered a replacement for soil treatment m the case of termite infestation.
Apply solution as a general fan spray onto the surface of the wood or inject solution under pressure into the wood as a liquid or foam. Inject by either injecting solution through a directional injector directly into existing wids and galleries or by drilling wood to form treatment channels through which the solution can be injected into the insect galleries. Multiple treatment channels of varying depth may need to be drilled to adequately distribute the solution within the wood interior. Application can also be made with a paintbrush.
Before application, locate heat pipes, ducts, water and sewer lines and electrical conduits. Take precautions to avoid puncturing and/or injecting solution into these items. Do not apply solution inside of electrified enclosures, switches or sockets.
Plastic sheeting must be placed below any indoor overhead surfaces being treated that are located anywhere except within a soil-based crawl space. Wear protective clothing, unvented goggles, gloves and respirator when making an overhead application or when applying in poorly ventilated indoor areas. Do not touch surfaces until spray has dried.
When treating in home food preparation and storage areas, cover all food preparation surfaces and utensils prior to beginning treatment. Surfaces or items that cannot be covered or removed should be thoroughly washed after treatment and before use. Food that cannot be covered should be removed before application, remove pets, birds and cover and disconnect aquariums do not allow humans and pets to touch treated surfaces unhealthy have dried.

A 0 06% solution of Maxxthor SC applied as a liquid or foam to exterior structural components can be used to protect them from the attack of wood infesting insects such as termites, carpenter ants and wood boring beetles or borers. Apply solution by general fan spray to the point of runoff onto the surface of the wood or inject solution under pressure into the wood as a liquid or foam. Inject by either injecting solution directly into existing voids and galleries or drilling wood to form treatment channels through which the solution can be injected into the insect galleries. Multiple treatment channels of varying depth may need to be drilled to adequately distribute the solution within the wood interior. Application can also be made with a paintbrush.
To control carpenter ants, also apply solution around doors and windows and other areas carpenter ants have been observed or can be expected to forage.
Within wooden components and trees. Locate the cavity that the insects (such as carpenter ants) are inhabiting. Inject a 0.06% solution of Maxxthor SC into the cavity as a solution or foam. Apply a sufficient volume of solution to completely flood or fill the cavity. Drill injection channels if necessary.
APPLICATION FOR LAWN PESTS
Maxxthor SC controls a wide range of turf grass insect and mite pests. Maxxthor SC is not for use on turf grass grown for sale, commercial seed production, for other commercial use or for research.
Not for use on golf course turf.

Permitted sites include but are not limited to lawns, grounds, recreational areas, parks, landscapes and athletic fields. New York State only: Do not apply Maxxthor SC containing solutions to grass or turf within 100 feet of a body of water (lake, pond, river, stream, wetland or drainage ditch).
Application Precautions and Preparations
Keep children and pets off treated areas until spray has dried
If necessary, test the effects of applications of different rates and volumes of mixed solution on a small patch of a type of grass (with observations over one week to detect the occurrence of negative effects) before application of solutions to large areas of that type of grass.
Maxxthor SC can be mixed with other pesticides, including insect growth regulators. Follow the label directions of all the products mixed, making sure not exceed the labeled application rate of any individual product in the mixture. Any tank mixture that has not been tested before should be tested before full scale use by first mixing a small quantity of the mixture to ensure there IS no physical or chemical incompatibility.
Apply solution as a broadcast treatment in a quantity sufficient to wet all foliage. If necessary, consult resources in horticulture in your area (such as your Cooperative Extension Service) to determine appropriate application timing and cultural practices to control different types of pests.
Reapplications may be necessary particularly in the event of high pest pressure. Reapply as needed based on pest reinfestation. Reapplications should not occur more often than every 7 days.
New York State only: Do make a single reapplication of Maxxthor SC if there is renewed insect activity, but not sooner than two weeks after first application.
Lawn Application Use Rates and Volumes
Use rates for Maxxthor SC for lawn pests are stated in fluid ounces of Maxxthor SC per 1000 square feet.
Apply Maxxthor SC at 0.18 to 1.0 fluid ounces per 1000 square feet depending on the target pest.
Recommended rates for specific pests within this range are given below. However, applications of up to 1.0 fluid ounce per 1000 square feet are permitted at the discretion of the applicator to control any pest.
Depending on the length and/or density of grass being treated, application volumes of up to 10 gallons per 1000 square feet can be made in order to obtain uniform coverage. If a minimal volume application is made (2 gallons per 1000 square feet) and the target pest such as mole crickets or chinch bugs for example, are located in the thatch or below the surface, irrigate the treated area with at least 0.25 Inches of water immediately after the application.
The calculated amount of Maxxthor SC can be applied in any volume of water as long as the maximum label rate of 1.0 fluid ounce per 1000 feet is not exceeded. Do not exceed the maximum label rate by applying solution to an area smaller than intended when it was mixed and diluted unless such under dosing will not result in an application rate per 1000 square feet in excess of the maximum label rate.
Lawn Pest Application Use Rates
The application rates listed below provide control of the listed pests under normal conditions. At the discretion of the applicator, up to 1.0 fluid ounce of Maxxthor SC per 1000 square feet can be used to control any of the listed pests. Use the higher application rates when maximum residual control is needed.
Lawn Pests Grouped by Use Rates
Use Rate A: Armyworms, Cutworms, Sod Webworms
Use Rate B: Annual Bluegrass or Hyperodes Weevil (Adult), (Banks Grass Mite. Billbugs (Adult).

Use Rate C: Ants, Fleas (Larvae), Imported Fire Ant, Japanese Beetle (Adult), Mole Cricket (Nymph and Adult), Ticks
Calculating Amounts of Maxxthor SC to Mix for Lawn Pests
To mix and apply any amount of Maxxthor SC for lawn pests, determine:
A = Square feet of area to be treated / 1000 (5.500 sq. fl. / 1000 = 5.5)
B = Use Rate per 1000 square feet for the target pest(s,) in fluid ounces Maxxthor SC taken from the use Rate Table. If treating for more than one type of pest, select the highest rate.
Calculate the amount of Maxxthor SC to mix for lawn pests as follows:
Fluid Ounces Maxxthor SC to use = A X B
Mix this amount of Maxxthor SC in the amount of water needed to make the application. After mixing, the percent of Maxxthor SC active ingredient contained in the mixture can be determined using the following formula.
%a. i. = (0.0617 X fluid oz of Maxxthor SC added) 1 gallons of water in container
Application Recommendations Against Specific Lawn Pests
Annual Bluegrass or Hyperodes Weevil (Adult): Consult your Cooperative Extension Service for advice on application timing in your area.
Armyworms, Cutworms, Sod Webworms: Do not water or mow grass within 24 hours of application for optimum control of these surface feeding insects.
Billbug Adults: Make application when adults first appear in the spring or when chewed or brown grass indicates damage. Consult your Cooperative Extension Service for advice on more exact application timing in your area.
Chinch Bugs: Water grass immediately after application to help move active ingredient deeper into thatch where these insects live. The highest application rate may be necessary to achieve control during the summer.
Imported Fire Ant: Combine broadcast treatments to control newly invading ants and mound treatments to eliminate existing ant colonies. Treat mounds according to the Structural Pests Outside and Around Structures section of this label. For best results, make application during cool weather (65 to 80 degrees F) or in the early morning or late evening
Mole Crickets: Make application late in the day and water grass immediately after application to move treatment down into the grass where these insects live. If soil is not moist, water before treatment also to bring crickets closer to surface before application. Treating at the time of peak egg hatch increases control of hatching nymphs. Frequent application maybe necessary to control larger nymphs later in the year.
Ticks: (including ticks that may transmit Lyme Disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever) - Treat the entire area where ticks could be present Begin treatments in the spring Ticks may be re-introduced by host animals in the surrounding area. Retreats may be necessary to achieve and maintain control during periods of high pest pressure.

Apply spray to the exterior surfaces of structures and to grounds, lawns, landscaping, plants and hard surface areas adjacent to structures. Can also be applied to any areas where pests congregate or have been seen.
Perimeter Band Treatment
To help prevent pest infestation of structures create a treated zone or band on the structure, soil and vegetation around the entire perimeter of a structure. Apply solution to all surfaces within a band beginning 6 to 10 feet from the exterior foundation of the structure that extends back to the structure and then continues 2 to 3 feet up the exterior surface of the structure from the ground.
Application volume will depend upon the nature of the surface being treated. Mulch areas, for example, require more volume and hard surface areas requiring less.
Control of Specific Structural Pests Outdoors
Ants (Nuisance ants other than Carpenter Ants) Outdoors: To achieve the highest level of control, locate and directly treat ant nests. Apply solution to ant trails, around doors and windows and at points where ants can be expected to forage or congregate.
For Ant (including Fire Ant) Mounds: Treat mounds and area within a 2 foot radius of the center of the mound with 1-2 gallons of a 0.06% solution. When mounds exceed 12 inches in size use the highest volume of solution. Applications in cool weather (65 to 80 degrees F) or the cooler parts of the day are most effective. Do not apply treabnent dunng the heat of the day.
Bees. Wasps. Hornets, and Yellow Jackets: Always use the highest rate. Make application in late evening when Insects are at rest at the nest for best results and to avoid stings. Spray nest openings in ground, In bushes and wherever insects may be nesting. Spray to the point of saturation. Spray as many insects as possible. Remove and destroy treated nests to prevent emergence of newly hatched insects.
Boxelder Bug: Apply directly to where insects have congregated at points of entry. It may be necessary to also treat trees.
Centipedes, Earwigs, Beetles, Millipedes, Pillbugs, Sowbugs: Thoroughly treat mulch areas. The reduction of moisture in mulch areas may also aid in control of these pests.
Mosquitoes: Apply solution to lawns and landscaping, under decks and to building foundations.
Refer to APPLICATIONS FOR ORNAMENTAL PESTS section for mixing and applying large amounts of solution against mosquitoes.
Fleas and Ticks: Treat the entire area where insects could be present. Begin treatments in the spring. Insects may be re-introduced by host animals in the surrounding area. Retreatment may be necessary to achieve and maintain control during periods of high pest pressure.
