Bayer South East Africa through its Environmental Science subdivision has partnered with LachlanKenya Limited, a subsidiary of Unifert, to distribute Premise 200 SC, a premium termiticide targeting the building and construction industry.
The product matches the current customer needs, providing a premium solution for termite control at a good price as well as continues technical training support for product application.
The benefits of Premise 200 SC include guaranteed five years’ effectiveness compared to the average 3 years for other products in the market, killing the nest where it takes one termite to eliminate the rest and low volume of product used per application.
‘Termites play a vital role in nature by recycling dead and decaying wood. Unfortunately, they can’t tell the difference between dead trees and the structural timbers. Termite barriers therefore need to be incorporated into the construction of new and existing buildings, which are vulnerable to termite infestation. Lachian is a key player in the termicide market in Kenya and we will integrate our termicide offering into their established dealership network in Kenya,’ said Aladji Cisse, Head of Bayer Environment Science for Sub-Saharan Africa.
‘We have been distributing termicides in Kenya for many years and in the last few years we have faced immense challenges linked to counterfeit products. We are excited to take on the distributorship of this premium product that will ensure we continue servine our clients for years to come,’ said Richard Stonewigg, Manager at Lachlan Kenya Limited.
The active ingredient of Premise has been approved for use for many years for professional pest control in homes and public buildings. Premise has been through a rigorous regulatory evaluation by the government regulator and is safe to people and the environment when the product is used as recommended.
