Background Termites are a substantial economic threat to property owners. Annually, $5 billion is spend to treat termite infestations and repair the damage termites cause. In the United States, the major pestiferous termites are subterranean termites (e.g., Reticulitermes spp. and Coptotermes formosanus). Termites can cause substantial damage because: 1. They consume the primary materials used in construction; and 2. Their presence in a structure can go undetected for years. For the most part, property owners are incapable of assessing the risk of termite attack. Pesticides intended to reduce the risk of termite infestation or treat structures already infested are classified as termiticides. Termiticides can be applied as a preventative or remedial treatment. Preventative treatments are applied before an active termite infestation is known to occur. Preventative treatments can be further divided into two sub-categories: preconstruction and post-construction. Preconstruction treatments are made prior to the installation of the final grade during the construction process. Postconstruction treatments are made after the installation of the final grade. In neither case are termites treated directly; instead, a long-lasting, stable, relatively immobile chemical barrier (i.e., repellent and/or lethal pesticide) is employed to exclude termites from the structure by establishing horizontal and vertical barriers to termite infestation. This approach generally has been successful, especially when combined with removal of conditions conducive to termite infestation. Remedial treatment generally involves treating the infestation directly with a termiticide designed to both kill the termites present at the time of application and exclude the rest of the colony from the structure by establishing a chemical soil barrier. The economic importance of termites and the complexities of proper termiticide application have led to the special consideration of termiticides at the time of registration. These products are unique in that they provide relief or protection from a pest that can be difficult to detect and treat. Furthermore, the biology of termites (i.e., number of colony members, cryptic VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:39 Jul 03, 2008 Jkt 214001 nature, and amount of material consumed), the potential economic cost posed by damage resulting from a termite infestation, and the inability to reliably determine the effectiveness of a treatment at the time of application makes it important to verify the performance of products labeled for structural protection. Thus, it has been Agency policy that registrants demonstrate in nationwide trials that products labeled as soil applied liquid termiticides provide structural protection under simulated field conditions for at least 5 years. EPA is requesting comments at a public workshop on: 1. The relevance of the existing 810.3600 testing guideline scope and factors to be included in a revision; 2. The applicability of the existing test guideline to novel product chemistries; and 3. Approaches to resolve the disparity between soil applied liquid termiticides and testing of other pesticides which may provide structural protection.
