Beschreibung[en]

An object of the instant invention is to protect building already built or going to be built against crawling insect, especially against termites.

The insecticidal compounds of the family of the 1-arylpyrazoles are known to be active against termites.

Conventional termite control operators apply the chemical around or under the building or houses to form a barrier against termites invasion. However loopholes in the treatment may cause failure of protection of the houses.

Another system is to put a bait which contains an attractant for termites so as to force the termites to eat the bait and then to be killed by the active ingredient contained also in that bait.

An object of the invention is to provide an improve process of protection of houses.

Another object of the invention is to provide a treatment against termites which reduce the number of the call-back from house owners of treated houses.

An object of the instant invention is to protect the building with the minimum amount of insecticidally active ingredient.

Another object of the instant invention is to have a good level of protection of buildings against termites while reducing the amount of applied insecticide.

Another object of the instant invention is to reduce the need to treat directly the location where the termites are or are expected to be.

Another object of the instant invention is to provide a curative treatment with reduced need to find out the precise place of termites attacks.

Another object of the instant invention is to provide a curative treatment which is effective even when attacked parts are untreated.

Another object of the instant invention is to provide a curative treatment which is mainly a blind treatment with no checking of the attacked parts.

Another object of the instant invention is to provide a termite treatment functioning like an intangible trap.

Another object of the instant invention is to provide a termite treatment without barrier.

Another object of the instant invention is to provide a termite treatment with is mainly a soil treatment.

It has been found that these goals may be achieved by mean of the process of the instant invention.

The present invention relates to a process of protection of a building already built or is going to be built, whereby an effective amount of the compound 5-amino-3-cyano-1-(2,6-dichloro-4-trifluoromethylphenyl)-4-trifluoromethylsulfinyl pyrazole is applied as a composition to the perimeter of the building; and wherein the composition is applied along the perimeter of the building ; and such that the application does not form a barrier to termites; and where in the treated perimeter forms from 0.5 to 1.5 meter per 10 meter of the perimeter.

The insecticidally active material which can be used in the invention is an active ingredient which is active by contact (contact with species to be killed) and has no repellent effect on the insects, preferably no repellent effect on the insects to be killed.

A preferred class of active ingredient which can be used in the invention are the compounds without quick knock-down effect, or compounds able to produce a so-called secondary killing effect, that is to say an action of killing insects which have not been directly treated by mean of the said insecticide. Also preferred are the insecticides which are able to kill the termites of the termites nest when brought back by treated termites coming close to the house or building built or to be built.

The compound of the invention, herein after known as compound (A), may be prepared according to known processes, for example as described in International Patent Publications n° WO 87/3781, 93/6089, 94/21606, 96/16544, and 91/03939 as well as in European Patent Applications 295117, 403300, 385809 or 679650, German Patent Publication 19511269 and United States Patents 5232940 and 5236938 or other process according to the knowledge of a man skilled in the art of chemical synthesis, which is deemed to include the Chemical Abstract and the literature referred to therein. Compositions comprising the Compound (A) may also be prepared according to the teaching of same prior art or similar one.

An advantageous way of practicing the invention is to use the active ingredient in a formulation which does not contain any adjuvant having termite attractant properties. Even though, such attractant may be used optionally, it may be risky, and it may make the residents or owners of the house reluctant against such treatment. Known processes were generally unable to avoid the use of attractant in order to be effective.

The process of the invention may be practised in a preventive way as well as in a curative way.

The actual treatment by mean of active ingredient may be made inside or outside the outline of the houses or buildings to be built.

It is generally more effective to apply the active ingredient or formulation, it is most advantageous to put at locus where the insects, especially the termites are more frequently crawling or travelling or climbing. These locus are more particularly the comers or crossing walls of the buildings or buildings which are going to be built. They are also more particularly the locus which have a greater humidity level than the rest of the perimeter of the house.

The active ingredient is applied advantageously on soil. It might be simple surface treatment or also spraying, mixing, blending or drenching of the soil with a formulation.

The effective amount of compound applied on soil is generally within the range of 0.05 g of active ingredient per m2 of surface of the soil to 0.0001 g/m2. This range is given for the precise locus where the active ingredient is applied.

As already said, the active ingredient is applied on discrete locus. The general rate of application is such that the treated part of the perimeter of the house is 0.5 to 7.5 treated meter per 10 meter of global perimeter, the width of treated locus being in the range of 1 to 50 cm, preferably 5 to 30 cm.

For their application, the compounds of the formula (I), or derivatives thereof, are generally in the form of compositions, which are in various solid or liquid forms.

Solid forms of compositions which can be used are dusting powders (with a content of the compound of formula (I), or a pesticidally acceptable salt thereof, ranging up to 80%), wettable powders or granules (including water dispersible granules), particularly those obtained by extrusion, compacting, impregnation of a granular carrier, or granulation starting from a powder (the content of the compound of formula (I), or a pesticidally acceptable salt thereof, in these wettable powders or granules being between about 0.5 and about 80%). Solid homogenous or heterogeneous compositions containing one or more compounds of formula (I), or pesticidally acceptable salts thereof, for example granules, pellets, briquettes or capsules, may be used to treat standing or running water over a period of time. A similar effect may be achieved using trickle or intermittent feeds of water dispersible concentrates as described herein.

Liquid compositions, for example, include aqueous or nonaqueous solutions or suspensions (such as emulsifiable concentrates, emulsions, flowables, dispersions, or solutions) or aerosols. Liquid compositions also include, in particular, emulsifiable concentrates, dispersions, emulsions, flowables, aerosols, wettable powders (or powder for spraying), dry flowables or pastes as forms of compositions which are liquid or intended to form liquid compositions when applied, for example as aqueous sprays (including low and ultra-low volume) or as fogs or aerosols.

Liquid compositions, for example, in the form of emulsifiable or soluble concentrates most frequently comprise about 5 to about 80% by weight of the active ingredient, while the emulsions or solutions which are ready for application contain, in their case, about 0.01 to about 20% of the active ingredient. Besides the solvent, the emulsifiable or soluble concentrates may contain, when required, about 2 to about 50% of suitable additives, such as stabilisers, surface-active agents, penetrating agents, corrosion inhibitors, colorants or adhesives. Emulsions of any required concentration, which are particularly suitable for application, for example, to plants, may be obtained from these concentrates by dilution with water. These compositions are included within the scope of the compositions which may be employed in the present invention. The emulsions may be in the form of water-in-oil or oil-in-water type and they may have a thick consistency.

The liquid compositions of this invention may, in addition to normal agricultural use applications be used for example to treat substrates or sites infested or liable to infestation by arthropods (or other pests controlled by compounds of this invention) including premises, outdoor or indoor storage or processing areas, containers or equipment or standing or running water.

All these aqueous dispersions or emulsions or spraying mixtures can be applied, for example, to crops by any suitable means, chiefly by spraying, at rates which are generally of the order of about 100 to about 1,200 liters of spraying mixture per hectare, but may be higher or lower (e.g. low or ultra-low volume) depending upon the need or application technique.

The concentrated suspensions, which can be applied by spraying, are prepared so as to produce a stable fluid product which does not settle (fine grinding) and usually contain from about 10 to about 75% by weight of active ingredient, from about 0.5 to about 30% of surface-active agents, from about 0.1 to about 10% of thixotropic agents, from about 0 to about 30% of suitable additives, such as anti-foaming agents, corrosion inhibitors, stabilisers, penetrating agents, adhesives and, as the carrier, water or an organic liquid in which the active ingredient is poorly soluble or insoluble Some organic solids or inorganic salts may be dissolved in the carrier to help prevent settling or as antifreezes for water.

The wettable powers (or powder for spraying) are usually prepared so that they contain from about 10 to about 80% by weight of active ingredient, from about 20 to about 90% of a solid carrier, from about 0 to about 5% of a wetting agent, from about 3 to about 10% of a dispersing agent and, when necessary, from about 0 to about 80% of one or more stabilisers and/or other additives, such as penetrating agents, adhesives, anti-caking agents, colorants, or the like. To obtain these wettable powders, the active ingredient(s) is(are) thoroughly mixed in a suitable blender with additional substances which may be impregnated on the porous filler and is(are) ground using a mill or other suitable grinder. This produces wettable powders, the wettability and the suspendability of which are advantageous. They may be suspended in water to give any desired concentration and this suspension can be employed very advantageously for application.

The "water dispersible granules (WG)" (granules which are readily dispersible in water) have compositions which are substantially close to that of the wettable powders. They may be prepared by granulation of formulations described for the wettable powders, either by a wet route (contacting finely divided active ingredient with the inert filler and a little water, e.g. 1 to 20% by weight, or with an aqueous solution of a dispersing agent or binder, followed by drying and screening), or by a dry route (compacting followed by grinding and screening).

Generally speaking, the compositions for application pests usually contain from about 0.00001% to about 95%, more particularly from about 0.0005% to about 50% by weight of one or more compounds of formula (I), or pesticidally acceptable salts thereof, or of total active ingredients.

The following examples are given to help the man skilled in the art to understand how to practices the invention. It should not be used to restrict or limit the said invention.

Example 1

In an area where termites are passing or travelling, plans for a house are made. The plans are that the house will have a rectangular shape of 15 m x 10 m with 4 rooms at the lower level

At the location of the future comers of the house and at the crossing of the walls corresponding to each room according to the following scheme :

The treated area represents 5 m per 10 m of perimeter

Compound (A) is actually put on the soil at a rate of 0.01 g/m2 of the soil

After 1 year after building the house, no attack of termite is observed.

A similar experiment made with chlorpyrifos let the observation of a strong attack of termite (parts of the walls have hole of more than 10 % of the volume)

Example 2

Example 1 is repeated, except that the active ingredient is applied inside the perimeter of the house. In other words, the locus of application differ from example 1 only by the fact that it is located at the other side of the wall.
