Premise ... Termite Elimination Termiticide
For reliable and cost-effective termite elimination

Premise was first released for use in the public arena in the USA in 1996 – it is the original non-repellant termiticide (discussed below). Premise has since built a solid reputation as a reliable long term termite control product with virtually no serious problems encountered in the market place.
Premise termite control termiticide from Bayer Environmental Science provides immediate protection from termites like no other product. Firstly, termites are eliminated as they ingest or contact Premise in a treated soil area around the perimeter of a building or other timber structure.
In addition, termites can transfer Premise to other termites through social interaction and cannibalism, affecting the entire termite colony. Bayer calls the Premise transfer attribute it’s Domino Effect, which means Premise not only kills termites, but also substantially reduces or eliminates termite colonies. Together these attributes have proven to be highly effective termite eliminator.
Premise has delivered reliable elimination of termite problems in more than 1 million homes in the USA.
The Bayer Written Guarantee of Protection
  Bayer are so confident of the effectiveness of its Premise product, that they provide a written guarantee to termite controllers in the USA who fully treat the soil areas at the base of a structure as per the Premise label requirements.
Part of the Bayer terms and conditions of such a guarantee states in effect “if Premise fails to stop termites at any time within seven years of initial treatment, Bayer will reimburse up to 100% of product and labour costs involved in retreatment to a maximum of $1000 for residential accounts and $5000 for commercial accounts. Bayer will also guarantee to pay the termite controller's damage claim insurance deductible up to $500 per structure”.
It is a condition of this guarantee that annual inspections are carried out by the same company installing the Premise termiticide soil treatment.
Full details are available from the authorised Premise termiticide users in your locality.
Premise ... Treated Soil Zones
  The installation of a Premise treated soil zone requires expert knowledge and specialized equipment to form a complete and continuous barrier to protect the building from a termite entry and infestation - as illustrated below:

Trench and Treat
Crawl Spaces foundation wall
Planter boxes or other parts
Trench and treat soil around external concrete slab edge
Trench and treat soil around walls and piers in the sub-floor area
Treatment of soil along / around the external perimeter
Treat cracks, expansion joints
Pipes and utility lines
Soils beneath  porches
Drill concrete floor along expansion joints and cracks, and treat soil thereunder
Drill concrete floor around pipes and treat soil thereunder
Drill concrete patio areas and treat soil area therein - a high risk termite nest location
Premise ... Non-repellant - First and Foremost
  Premise works quite differently from other termiticide soil treatment products which are designed to repel or keep termites away from a treated soil area, rather than killing them.
Termites tunneling in higher concentration Premise treated soil areas abutting the building, are killed outright, within a few hours.
Termites tunneling in the outer reaches of a Premise (lower concentration) treated soil area, cannot detect the Premise chemical which readily sticks to the termite's body. These termites remain unaffected for a few days, before sudden death occurs.
This delayed lethal effect provides enough time for the Premise chemical to be transferred back to the central colony nest to infect other termites.

The "carrier" termites are able to readily spread the Premise chemical to other termites during regular physical contact with other termites in the colony, particularly when working together in close proximity, grooming and feeding other termites, a regular function of their daily life.
With "repellant" termiticides, any minute gap in the treated soil can be detected and exploited by the termites to gain entry in the building. This is a major short-coming of the old-fashioned termite control alternatives, far too often, with financially disastrous consequences.
Termites cannot detect the Premise chemical as it has no odour, taste or smell to the termites.
The "exposed" termites are able to readily spread the Premise chemical to "unexposed" termites during regular physical contact with other termites, particularly when working together in close proximity, grooming and feeding other termites, a regular function of their daily life.

If you have termites in your property, we recommend you discuss the problem with the neighbors. Obviously, several homes close by each other with a Premise treated soil barrier, will greatly increase the chances of successful termite colony elimination, for the benefit all concerned, excepting the termites.

Recent termite control analysis – the biggest in USA history
  Recently Bayer conducted the most extensive analysis of a termiticide effectiveness ever conducted in the history of the USA pest control industry. Click here for the brochure: Premise delivers termite elimination.
In this study of actual use conditions, Bayer found more than 99% of buildings treated by Premise at full label applications required absolutely NO retreatment throughout a 5 year period following the initial treatment, with no serious re-infestation problems or failure of the product's effectiveness.
This is an outstanding result given the tenacity of termite species in the USA and wide variation in technical skills of applicators, climatic conditions, soil compositions and building construction types evident throughout the United States.
Bayer claim “there is no technical or commercial reason to use any termiticide other than Premise”. The results tend to speak for themselves.
Premise Transfer Effect
The "Domino Effect" of Premise has been observed through controlled scientific testing on live termites.
Extensive testing by the US Dept of Agriculture - Forest Service and the University of Hawaii documented lethal transfer of Premise from exposed to unexposed termites even when they were exposed to 100ppm Imidacloprid - the active constituent chemical in Premise termiticide.
PREMISE provides for long-term on-going termite elimination
As with any termite control program, your property always remains susceptible to future attack from new termite colonies or other established colonies in your area.
The good news for the homeowner is that the Premise soil treatment chemical will remain in place for many years even after the existing attack on your property has been eliminated.
  In brief, Premise treated soil zone acts on an on-going basis to prevent termite entry through a treated soil area into a building or other protected structures. Such a chemical soil zone under and around the external perimeter of a building is a wide continuous target for the foraging termites to encounter, rather than scattered bait stations around the building!  
Your Premise Termite Control Program
 finding termites
The first step in a Premise termite control program is for your termite controller to thoroughly inspect your premises in order to assess the level of infestation and the extent of the threat to your property.
Based upon this inspection, the termite controller can recommend exactly where and how the Premise soil treatment should be applied.

Premise is a lower cost-effective termite control program - the cost of a Premise program depends on the size and design of the subject building - the extent of the infestation - the risk of further attack and on-going termite activity - and other environmental factors.
Where a complete Premise soil treatment is not practical or desired by the property owner - then we recommend the Exterra termite baiting system also be installed.
  termite-control-expert Ring the Experts: The success of a Premise termite control soil treatment depends heavily upon the skill and experience of the termite control specialist engaged.
Premise is only available to licensed pest controllers.
