Baited: Trelona® ATBS
Cannon Pest Control was the first pest control in Lee County to be certified for Termidor®. Termidor® is made from a revolutionary non-repellent, or “undetectable,” chemical technology. When a termite ingests or touches Termidor®, it becomes a “carrier,” transferring Termidor® to every other termite it comes in contact with. Because Termidor® is intentionally engineered to be slow-acting, termites have ample time to pass it on to their entire population.
Ongoing field trials by the United States Department of Agriculture show no signs of termites at all study sites more than 10 years after treatment with Termidor®. Pest professionals have successfully protected more than 2.6 million U.S. homes with Termidor® since it was introduced in 2000.
Premise is the original non-repellent termicide. It is applied to soil to create a protective Treated Zone between termites and the wood in your home. Its unique chemistry binds to soil and won’t wash away. By contrast, repellent termite control products create chemical barriers to keep termites away but not kill them. Eventually, termites find breaks in repellent-treated soil that allow them to invade a home, meaning the colony is not eliminated.
Premise, on the other hand, kills termites in three ways: there’s no barrier, so termites don’t avoid it, as foraging termites tunnel, they consume Premise, termites also contact Premise as they forage in treated soil.
