Whether you want to prevent or stem a termite invasion of your home, there are liquid termite solutions that may be just what you are looking for. One of these options is Premise, which is a barrier applied to the soil. This option is good for homeowners who don’t yet have a problem with termites in their homes but live in North Carolina, where termites can proliferate during the summer.
The Trouble with Termites
Termites cause hundreds of thousands of dollars of damage to homes each year, and most of the damage occurs to Southern homes during the warm summer months when termite colonies become active. These little insects eat the wood in your home, resulting in structural damage over time. However, unless you have severe failure of wood in your home, you may not even be aware of termites. A home inspection is usually the only means of finding and eradicating a termite problem. Premise is a liquid termite control option that prevents the bugs from getting to your home and beginning their feast by working on the insect’s nervous system.
Premise to Prevent Problems
Premise works on the brains of the termites that are thinking about coming into your home or are already there. A certified termite expert will apply a layer of Premise to the soil around your home. Termites that touch the treated soil have a reaction in their nervous system that keeps them away from other termites, which means they won’t breed. Termites that have touched the Premise also won’t eat the wood in your home anymore. It’s a win-win situation for you and a losing scenario for the termites. Due to the liquid composition of Premise, it spreads after application to a wider area of the soil to provide greater coverage. By covering more of the soil around your home, Premise can contact more termites.
Premise is only one of the many products Clegg’s uses to treat, prevent and protect homes against the plague of termites that is so common in the South. Ask about this or any of the other methods used by Clegg’s to solve your termite troubles.
