|| 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
tunneling in higher concentration Premise treated soil areas
abutting the building, are killed outright, within a few hours.
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
