KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN READ SAFETY DIRECTIONS BEFORE OPENING OR USING Perigen® 500 TIMBER AND RESIDUAL INSECTICIDE Active Constituent: 500 g/L PERMETHRIN 25:75 Solvent: 324 g/L HYDROCARBON LIQUID INSECTICIDE For control of a range of insect pests in various situations. GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS Insecticide Resistance Warning For insecticide resistance management, Perigen 500 Timber and Residual Insecticide is a Group 3A insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to Perigen 500 and other Group 3A insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if Perigen 500 or other Group 3A insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of Perigen 500 on resistant individuals could be significantly reduced. Since occurrence of resistant individuals is difficult to detect prior to use, Bayer CropScience Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of Perigen 500 to control resistant insects. Perigen 500 may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For further information contact your local supplier or Bayer representative.
Large Scale or Commercial Operations for Dip/Spray Treatment of felled logs, poles, posts and sawn timberPerigen 500 can be mixed with either diesel, light oil or water. Choice of carrier depends on anticipated exposure to water. Totalexposure requires diesel. For timber under shelter, use light oil or water. Application in diesel will survive up to 3 months exposure in open. Water and light oil applications should be protected, toachieve maximum effectiveness of up to 3 months. Agitate frequently and replenish dip as required.
Local Water Authorities should be advised of the proposed use of Perigen 500.
Remedial Treatment of TimberFor protection, in situ timbers may be treated by spraying or brushing with Perigen 500 according to the DIRECTIONS FOR USE. Do not use diesel distillate. If the opposite surface is covered, stained or varnished, it should be fully cured before Perigen 500 isapplied, especially if the timbers to be treated are old and cracks, holes or gaps are present. Test a small area to ensure thatsolvent penetration through timbers will not adversely affect the timber finish or floor coverings.
Plywood ManufactureUse with water. Production and handling of green veneers will vary from site to site. A shallow dip bath for treating veneers mustbe constructed. Throughput rate and liquid uptake of veneers has to be established. Replacement of appropriately dilutedproduct can be constant or periodic.
Aircraft DisinsectionUse with water only. Treatment should be carried out in accordance with relevant Department of Primary Industries and Energyquarantine requirements. PRECAUTIONS Treated timber must not come into contact with foodstuffs, e.g., in packing cases or places where food is prepared or stored. Avoid contact with food, food utensils, or places where food is prepared or stored. Before use, remove or cover all exposed foodstuffs. Cover all dishes and utensils, and places where food is prepared or stored. PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT Dangerous to fish and other aquatic organisms. DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the chemical or used containers. STORAGE AND DISPOSAL Store in the closed, original container in a cool, well-ventilated area. Do not store for prolonged periods in direct sunlight. Triple rinse or preferably pressure rinse containers before disposal. Add rinsings to spray tank. Do not dispose of undiluted chemicals on site. If recycling, replace cap and return clean containers to recycler or designated collection point. If not recycling, break, crush, or puncture and bury empty containers in a local authority landfill. If no landfill is available, bury the containers below 500 mm in a disposal pit specifically marked and set up for this purpose clear of waterways, desirable vegetation and tree roots. Empty containers and product should not be burnt. Perigen 500 SAFETY DIRECTIONS Product is harmful if swallowed. Will irritate the eyes, nose, throat and skin. Avoid contact with eyes and skin and do not inhale spray mist. When opening the container and preparing treatment mixture wear elbow length PVC gloves and face shield. After use and before eating, drinking or smoking, wash hands, arms and face thoroughly with soap and water. After each day's use, wash gloves, face-shield and contaminated clothing. FIRST AID If poisoning occurs, contact a doctor or Poisons Information Centre (phone 13 11 26).
