The rate of application on any "Termiticide" is 4 gallons per 10 linear feet of trench per foot of depth. This means that if the depth to the bottom of the foundation is 2 feet you would use 8 gallons per 10 linear feet or if it is 6 inches deep you would only use 2 gallons per 10 linear feet.
The way to calculate how much you would need is simply take 200 feet divide by 10 and times (4) or whatever amount you need.
So in essence, a 200 linear feet slab would require 80 gallons of mix on the perimeter in the trench. Talstar comes in a 3/4 gallon jug and in quarts. The mixing rate is approximately 1 oz per gallon of water. The 3/4 gallon jug would make 96 gallons of mix. This is a better deal than buying quarts and you will have some left over to spray for bugs. Talstar is a great bug killer too.

An alternative would be Bifen I/T which is the same ingredient, only a generic version and a little less expensive - http://www.epestsupply.com/product/72...
