GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS:

General Pest Control – Fivestar is a powerful knockdown and residual pesticide. Ants, cockroaches, fleas, flies, mosquitoes, spiders, ticks and wasps are controlled by direct contact with spray and also by residual action as they come into contact with treated surfaces.

Termites – Fivestar will help prevent and control subterranean termite infestation in and around buildings and structures when used in accordance with the Australian standard AS3660 series, Termite Management.  A dilute termiticidal emulsion must be adequately dispersed into the soil to establish a barrier between the building and subterranean termites in the soil. The purpose of a termite barrier is to prevent concealed termite entry into the building. The biology and behaviour of the termite species involved, should be considered by the pest control operator in determining which control measures are most appropriate to control and prevent termite infestation

Crops, Ornamentals, Turf – This product can be used as a protective treatment when applied at regular intervals or as a knockdown treatment to control existing pests. Best results are obtained when the product is applied before his populations buildl to add damaging levels.

APPLICATION – Turf, Ornamentals & Crops:

Fivestar is a suspension concentrate requiring dilution with water prior to use. Applications should be made with ground application equipment calibrated to deliver a fine spray in a suitable volume to ensure thorough coverage.

MIXING:

Add  required quantity of Fivestar to water in the spray tank and mix thoroughly. Maintain agitation during both mixing and application.

For Termites – to facilitate even application of the Termiticide emulsion over the area to be treated, the addition of a marke dye at label rates is recommended. On hard wet soil, the penetration of the termiticide emulsion may be improved by the addition of a soil surfactant at label rates.

Turf – to aid in even coverage a minimum spray volume of 200L per hectare is recommended. High volumes can be used as in all cases the insecticide needs to be incorporatedinto the turf thatch and other soil.
