Premise® SC200Proven Termite Protection.Premise is the original non-repellent termiticide providing reliable termite protection in a wide range of situations. It’s mode of action combines both structural protection and colony management. It contains the active ingredient imidacloprid, which is extremely effective on termites at ultra-low doses. Termites pick up the active ingredient from soil, but as there are no immediate effects, the termites continue their normal activities for a short while. During this time the termites interact with other termites, and in so doing they transfer some of the active ingredient to other termites. This results in a spreading of the active ingredient throughout the termite colony. In this manner, it’s not only the termites which forage into Premise-treated soil which die, but many in the colony as well, ultimately providing a colony management effect and better protection. Due to it’s activity down to very low dose rates, Premise can be applied at a very low dose rate and still be expected to provide at least 3 years protection, even under tropical conditions where termiticides are put to their harshest test.
- Key Benefits:
- At least 3-year’s protection even under tropical conditions thereby providing long-term protection of structures
- Good lateral movement in soil which reduces the number of holes to be drilled internally, thus reducing disturbance.
- Termite colony management which improves the performance and reliability of control
- Ultra low dose rate and low environmental profile, which minimises environmental effects
