Premise Granules is labeled for spot and perimeter band applications, and because it is non-repellent it works well with other termiticide treatments. Premise is a non-repellent termiticide, meaning that termites do not detect that Premise is present. Premise 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. Premise Granules are designed to kill termites present at time of application only but will not prevent future infestations, so you will need to follow up a treatment of Premise Granules with the longer-lasting Premise 2 spray or Termidor, which are for soil drenching and remain in the soil for several years.
they did the job i had swarmers coming out so i spread the premise on the craw space and sprayed a couple gallon of water on the premise and i found loads of the termites still with wings all over dead!!
I purchased Premise Granules oo the recommendation of a friend. He has used the product for a number of years and has had no termite problems.Only time will tell if this product works as well on my Arizona house.
My friend has used this product for 7 years .His house is located in Arizona which is prone to termites.He has been trouble free so I thought I would try this product but only time will tell . It's easy to spread.
Can Premise Granules be used as a pre-slab treatment application?
We are looking to do treatments in the winter in Iowa, and need something that won't freeze. Will this work instead of a liquid termiticide? Thanks
Unfortunately not. Premise granules are not a substitute for a termite treatment and they are not labeled for pre-treatment. Premise granules are only a supplemental treatment to an already installed termite treatment. Only liquid termiticides are labeled for pre-treatments under slabs. Of course some states have approved baiting systems as a full termite treatment and don't require liquid treatments under the slab if you install a baiting system.
Borers killed crabapple - best insecticide to treat soil to prevent again
Borers killed my prairie fire crabapple, arborist said to remove and great soil with Di-syston granules before planting new one. Is this the best insecticide or can you suggest how to prevent this if I plant a new tree?
Dominion would be a great product to treat the soil. Once the tree is planted you can treat it with talstar P.
