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.

Premise Granules is unique granular termiticide that 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 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. Premise Granules are not only cost-effective, it is super easy to use with no mixing required, no extra set-up or time involved and no equipment needed. Premise granules work well to get rid of an active termite infestation but should be used in conjunction with another long term product such as Premise 2 spray or Termidor as it will only kill termites present at the time of the application.

December 7, 2011Eric from Des Moines, Ia asked:
QCan this 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
AUnfortunately 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.
