NEMISES

Nemesis termite bait is a registered product under the requirements of legislation administered by the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority a Federal Government instrumentality. The system uses a number of plastic bait stations for in-ground and above-ground installation where active termites have been located.

 

Nemesis termite bait contains chlorfluazuron - an IGR insect growth regulator -  worker termites readily eat the Nemesis termite bait - feed it to other termites in the central nest - termites must regularly moult in from nymph to adult - the IGR prevents the regrowth this external skeleton - they die as a result - termites eat dead termites thereby hastening the elimination of the entire colony - with sufficient bait consumed the entire colony will be eradicated.

 

When is it used: Where live activity is found we recommend that an above-ground bait station containing Nemesis bait is positioned directly on areas of known activity.

 

Regular monitoring: The above-ground stations are checked at 2 to 3 week intervals to assess levels of bait consumption by the termites. The bait is replenished as required. With sufficient consumption the entire termite colony will be eliminated. Bear in mind, there is always the likelihood that other termite nests will infest the building.

 

BEWARESome unscrupulous pest control companies offer to install in-ground plastic stations as a termite "baiting" and monitoring program even if no live termites are found on the property and a complete soil treatment to AS3660 is a viable long term option. Remember: this strategy assumes the blind termites will "find" the monitoring stations, then and only then, is the bait added.
