Do not use household utensils to measure Ortho-Klor. Subterranean Termites (Outdoors): Kills and controls subterranean termites. Chemicals for soil treatment are used to establish a barrier against termites. The chemical emulsion must be adequately dispersed in the soil to provide a barrier between the wood in the structure and the termite colonies in the soil. Barriers may be established in the soil on the outside perimeter of the house by trenching using a rate of 4 gallons of emulsion per 10 linear feet per foot of depth. Apply half volume of the diluted product with a sprinkling can in the trench. Apply other half to the backfill as the trench is refilled. Fence Posts: Use a sprinkling can. Pour 1/2 gallon of diluted product into fence post hole and add another 1/2 gallon to the soil when filling the hole so that all the fill soil is treated to form a protective barrier. Fence Posts - Termite Prevention: Create an insecticidal barrier in the soil around wooden constructions such as signs, fences and landscape ornamentation. Previously installed poles and posts may be treated by gravity-flow through holes made from the bottom of the trench around the pole or post. Treat on all sides to create a continuous insecticidal barrier around the pole. Use 1 gallon of emulsion per foot of depth for poles and posts less than six inches in diameter. for larger poles, use 1.5 gallons of emulsion per foot of depth. Apply to a depth of 6 inches below the bottom of the wood. For larger constructions, use 4 gallons per 10 linear feet per foot of depth. When to Reapply: Reapplication for subterranean termites should only be made when there has been a disruption of the chemical barrier in the soil due to construction, excavation, landscaping, etc. Reapplication should be made as a spot treatment to those areas. Annual reapplication of the entire premises must be avoided.
