500g/L CHLORPYRIFOS (An Anticholinesterase Compound)
Bar 500 EC Chlorpyrifos Insecticide and Termiticide is a member of the group of Organophosphate Insecticides controlling a wide range of insect pests on fruit, vegetables, oilseeds, cotton, cereals, pasture, potted ornamentals and turf, the post-construction management of subterranean termites in accord with Australian Stand AS 3660.2 and other domestic insect pests.
Bar 500 EC Chlorpyrifos Insecticide and Termiticide is an environmentally sound product, which does not accumulate in the environment or build up in the food chain. Soil persistence is between two to four months.
Bar 500 EC Chlorpyrifos Insecticide and Termiticide should be used as part of an overall termite management program as detailed in Australian Standard Series AS 3660. A great deal of care is required to understand construction details of the building and to apply the product in a manner which ensures a complete chemical soil barrier. Where necessary, the barrier may need to be re-applied under the building. Application equipment must be fitted with a flow meter and pressure regulator on the application device. The purpose of a chemical soil barrier is to impede and discourage concealed termite entry into a structure. Barriers may still be bridged by termites, but their entry can then be more easily detected during routine inspections. If a barrier is not complete or breached, then concealed termite entry may occur. It is often not possible to form a complete barrier around existing structures in which case other termite management options and/or more frequent inspections will also need to be considered

The effectiveness Bar 500 EC Chlorpyrifos Insecticide and Termiticide on resistant individuals could be significantly reduced.
