SPECIAL DEAL!!Adonis 75 WSP (same active ingredient, power, and label as Premise 75, for almost half the price!).
Premise 75 WP Termiticide provide professional-grade, long-lasting and effective termite control. Premise 75 WP may be used to do an in-ground perimeter treatment around a home's foundation to prevent termite infestation or for treating localized areas of known subterranean termite activity. It is also excellent for controlling drywood and dampwood termites, borers and other wood-infesting insects in and around basements, attics, crawl spaces, voids, and damaged wood piles. Premise 75 works differently from other termiticide products that are designed to simply repel or keep termites away from the treated soil area without killing them. Premise is a non-repellent termiticide, meaning that termites do not detect that Premise is present. Unsuspecting termites contact Premise termiticide and then transfer it to other termites, eventually killing the entire colony.

Premise 75 WSP works differently from other termiticide products that are designed to simply repel or keep termites away from the treated soil area without killing them. Premise termiticide creates an undetectable “Treated Zone” around the home, where termites unknowingly eat treated cellulose or tunnel into treated soil. The exposed termites then remain unaffected for a few days, before sudden death occurs. In the meantime, the exposed termites are able to spread the Premise chemical to unexposed termites by physical contact when they feed or groom the other termites, resulting in a domino death effect which wipes out more of the colony.
Imidacloprid, the active ingredient in Premise, is the most widely used insecticide in the world with a proven track record of success – less than one percent retreat rate. The active ingredient in Premise is commonly used in consumer products for both people and pets. Premise has no odor, and remains in the soil for years after initial application. Each bag contains 4 x 2.25 oz water soluble packets.
Tips for Use
Before beginning a treatment, determine the location of underground utility lines, the main water line shut-off valve, and if there is radiant heat or sub-slab air ducts.
In heavy clay soils, rod holes should be spaced 3-4 inches apart. In lighter and sandy soils, rod holes can be spaced 6-8 inches apart.
Where the soil is heavy, PREMISE® 75 can be applied by reducing hole spacing, or by increasing the concentrations of Premise 75 two-fold in half the volume.
Houses that have large settlement voids or sand fill should be treated by long rodding underneath the slab.
Technicians should determine if air ducts in slabs are a perimeter system or a radial system before drilling and treating. Perimeter systems that run along the foundation can complicate treatment.
Ducts made of cardboard, or that have rusted out, should be sealed, and a recommendation should be made to the homeowner to install an alternate system.
Foaming void areas is an effective way to obtain complete coverage.
Do not treat soil beneath structures that contain cisterns or wells. Consult state and local specifications for recommended distances of wells from the treated area.
A borascope is a useful tool for determining what is located beneath a slab or behind a foundation wall.
Can't really say what we think yet, we have not used. But if the Termiticide is anything like the VIPER INSECT, I know we will be very pleased. When we prepare the ground and do the treatment, I would be happy to give review. I think nothing but positive at this point, I know you will not let me down.
Premise 75 when used for termite protection in the ground will last for 5-7 years depending on the soil type. If you live in an area with sandy soil where water can move more easily through the ground, you will get a shorter life out of the Premise 75. If you live in an area with a soil that is more clay like, you should get a good 7 years out of the Premise 75.
Who can apply Premise 75 and is there training and certification required?
Homeowners can apply Premise 75 around their home for the treatment of termites. You cannot apply on someone else's property or for profit on other properties without the proper training, certification and licensing in your state.
Can you use a regular bag of Premise 75 for foaming void areas? Will you explain to me foaming a void area?
Premise 75 comes in a powder form but you mix it with water to make a solution just like you would any other concentrate on our site, so yes, it can be foamed. To foam a product you need a Poly Foamer to apply the foam and our ProFoam Foaming Concentrate which is an expanding liquid you need to mix with the solution. Keep in mind that the Premise 75 are wettable packets and cannot be mixed in smaller quantitites than 25 gallons. You would have to mix up a large amount and then transfer into a smaller gallon foamer. It would be easier to use Premise 2 which comes in a bottle that is easy to measure 1 gallon increments.
Premise 75 is a powder that must be mixed with at least 25 gallons of water. The specific application will depend on what and where you are treating. Please read the Premise 75Product Label for a full explanation.
