Launched in India in 2004, Premise is used for anti-termite treatment in the pre-construction and post-construction segment. Over the last five years, Premise has protected over 250 million square feet of constructed buildings in India. Premise has also been used to termite-proof the base of the iconic, 597 feet tall, Statue of Unity in Gujarat.
Speaking about the certification for Premise, Dr. Arun Kumar, Head of Environmental Science, Bayer South Asia, said, “The GreenPro certification for Premise is an endorsement of Bayer’s sustainability commitments towards greener and cleaner products. We are delighted that Premise® is India’s first termiticide to win this recognition by the CII-IGBC.”
The active ingredient in Premise is Imidacloprid, which is a low dosage (2.1 ml/ litre solution for application) molecule which works extremely well for colony management of termites. In comparison to alternatives which work by repelling termites, Imidacloprid works through a non-repellant technique; where the termite is exposed to the chemical which is later transferred to the other members of the termite colony. This technology is odourless and is water-based, making it a highly desirable option for safe and easy application.
