The construction industry in Kenya is set to receive a major boost after Lachlan Kenya partnered with Bayer Environmental Science to distribute Premise 200SC, a premium termiticide.
Bayer is an international life science company offering innovative products that serve the health of humans, plants and animals.
According to Bayer Environmental Science the product provides a premium solution for termite control at an affordable price as well as continuous technical training support for product application.
The benefits of Premise 200SC include Guaranteed five years’ effectiveness compared to the average 3 years for other products in the market.
The termiticide is also said to kill 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 structural timbers," head of Bayer Environmental Science for Sub-Saharan Africa Aladji CISSE said.
"Termite barriers, therefore, need to be incorporated into the construction of new and existing buildings, which are vulnerable to termite infestation. Lachlan is a key player in the termiticide market in Kenya and we will integrate our termiticide offering into their established dealership network in Kenya."
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.
"We have been distributing termiticides in Kenya for many years and in the last few years 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 serving our clients for years to come,” Lachlan Kenya Limited General Manager Richard Stonewigg said.
