Pack Size and Mixing Rates
Where to Apply Gladiator
- Building construction sites
- Wood treatment
- Field termites
- Termite mounds
Concrete Slabs Under Construction
- Treat the outside of the foundation wall trenches with 6-12litresof the solution per linear meter and to the depths of 40-75 cm. The higher rates
are for deeper foundations. Replace the soil and apply another 8-16litres of the solution per linear meter. Finally, cover the trench and fill the treated
soil with a thin layer of untreated soil.
- Apply 6-9litres of the solution per square meter under the slab, entrance platforms, and porches. Ensure uniform coverage. The higher rate is for
slabs on gravel, cinder, and course materials.
Established concrete slab buildings
Prepare 40-75cm deep trenches along the outside foundation walls.
Treat as for buildings under construction. Drill along the inner foundation walls and selected floor sites at intervals of 45cm and inject the gladiator4TC solution under the concrete slab. Cover the drilled holes.
Mud floor houses under construction
Treat the external surfaces of the pole holes with Gladiator4Tc solution to the depth of 40-75cm. Dip the poles into the Gladiator 4TC solution.
Prepare 40-75cm deep trenches along the outside walls.
Established mud floor houses
Prepare 40-75cm deep trenches along the outside walls and treat them as for building under construction. Drill along the inner walls and select floor
sites at intervals of 45cm and inject the solution to depths of 40-75cm then cover the drill holes.
Remove the top 15cm of the soil and pour the solution down the tunnels. Replace the soil after treatment.
Lawns and Gardens
Spray affected areas at the rates of 1.5 liters of the solution per 10 square meters. Incorporate the spray into the soil.
Mix 1 liter of gladiator 4TC in 24 liters of water and spray the timber thoroughly to point of runoff. Soak mounds of fencing poles for 30minutes
and treat the soil in holes by pouring in the solution by the water can or bucket.
