Recommended Termite Control Methods

Premise and Termidor termite control products are used to treat the soil at the base of a building to eradicate subterranean termite activity around the building. We recommend these products as the best technology available - discussed in detail later on.

In certain circumstances, where Premise or Termidor cannot be used to achieve a complete termite protective soil treatment, we recommend a termite baiting system, such as Exterra or Sentricon, be used in some circumstances. You'll find details on various termite control products and methods in the Termite Control section of this web-site.

Subterranean termites may build above ground nests - often where moisture collects in a wall cavity due to leaking pipes, shower recess, guttering, etc.

A BIG PROBLEM: On the basis of recent experience, a significant number of homes in Crestwood will suffer a severe termite infestation. To make matters worse your home insurance policy does NOT cover the damage, which may involve costly replacement of floor, wall and roofing timbers.
Premise and Termidor can offer 100% termite protection in the majority of situations. Premise - first and foremost has been used by the US termite control industry for many years with excellent results in protecting buildings and other timber structures.

Premise and Termidor work differently from other soil treatment products. Most other such termiticides are repellents, which means they keep termites away from a treated soil area. This means any gap in the treated soil zone can be easily detected by the termites, to enable their unrestricted entry into the building.

NEW TECHNOLOGY: With Premise and Termidor, the termites cannot detect the chemical in the treated soil as it has no odor, taste or smell to the termites. They are not aware of the delayed lethal effect of the chemical ... until it's too late.
IMMEDIATE PROTECTION: Both BASF (Termidor) and Bayer (Premise) claim their products will swiftly eradicate termites that travel through a treated soil area abutting the building, where higher concentration levels are encountered.
COLONY ELIMINATION: In addition, termites exposed to the termiticide chemical in lower concentrations will not be affected for seversal day and will thereby transfer the termiticide to other termites - the so called Transfer or Domino Effect. This is a most important aspect aimed at successfully wiping out the entire colony - the ultimate form of long-term protection. Both products seem to provide more than 5 years reliable protection if applied correctly to label requirements and industry standards.
SAFETY ASPECTS: Both Premise and Termidor products as applied in a soil treated zone, are of ultra-low hazard to people. The various safety aspects are discussed in detail in the Termite Control section of this website.

PREMISE is the lower cost effective alternative

Premise is owned and manufactured by Bayer and is the lower cost effective product used extensively throughout the US. Bayer claims that Premise has a transfer or "Domino Effect" aimed at wide-spread termite elimination in areas surrounding the building.

CONSUMER NOTE: For the homeowner with "active" termites in their property, we recommend you obtain a professional inspection and written specifications for a complete soil treatment (where practicable) or termite baiting system be installed.

WARNING: Termite damage to a building or other timber structures can be severe and your home insurance does NOT cover the repair costs. Termites are known to destroy roofing and wall framing timbers within a few months in a worst case scenario.
