Product Overview

Premise Pre-Construction Insecticide is used for the prevention of termites. It offers affordability, high performance and excellent value for builders, pest management professionals, and design center architects. Most termiticide products on the market are repellent, which means termites can detect the treated areas and go around it. Premise Pre-Construction on the other hand, is a non repellent that allows termites to be in direct contact with the active ingredient, Imidacloprid. Premise Pre-Construction will not harm plumbing systems.

Can I do a soil drench around the drip line of a deodora tree with a Premise?
Most termiticides like Premise Pre-Construction Insecticide are only labeled to be used adjacent to a structure.  Termites do not normally attack live, healthy trees so you most likely will not find any products that will work as a ground barrier around the trees.  Most people are primarily concerned with protecting the big investment, their home.  For treatment around a tree you could use a product like Dominion that is labeled to be applied in more areas.

Will Premise Pre-Construction Insecticide kill existing termites in the wood?

I'm doing some repairs on a structure with Termite damage. Would this product be suitable for treating the affected wood, to prevent termites damaging the new wood I'm installing as part of the repairs?


Premise Pre-Construction is used for the prevention of termites around the perimeter of your home. This product binds with the soil. We would recommend treating the wood directly with something like Boracare or Timbor. These products should only be used on raw wood only. Be sure to use a sealant or paint on the wood after application. This will last for the life of the wood once this has been done.
