NEMESIS Q&A

Does Nemesis monitoring and baiting actually work? 
Yes- it is very effective and efficient; the system maximizes the control opportunity whilst minimizing the amount of material used and its likely impact on the environment.

 

How Does Nemesis Work? 
Nemesis is attractive bait for termites. The active ingredient affects the termite's ability to grow, develop and reproduce. The offending termite colony actually eats itself to destruction. 
Yes- it is very effective and efficient; the system maximizes the control opportunity whilst minimizing the amount of material used and its likely impact on the environment.

 

Why Do I Need a Licensed Pest Controller to Carry Out The Nemesis Treatment? 
Licensed Pest Controller's are highly trained and experienced in important treatment aspects, such as termite biology, ecology, conducive site conditions, building construction, likely entry points, termite detection and reporting, along with integrated termite management procedures. They utilise these skills and the underpinning knowledge in a manner which, in your time of need, will give you peace of mind.

 

How long does it take For the Nemesis Bait to kill the Termite Colony?
In many cases it will take 6-12 weeks, however several months may elapse before total colony elimination is affected. There are numerous factors controlling this, such as the time of year, size of the colony and species of termite involved. However due to the effect of the Termite Bait, termite feeding will decline to a level that will minimize further damage. It is also important to remember that there are visible observable milestones and indicators that the Termite Bait is working.

 

How Often Should Active Nemesis Stations, where Termites Are Feeding On The Bait, Be Inspected?
Approximately every 3 weeks, depending on the circumstances they will be replenished or remoistened.

 

Will Placing Nemesis In-ground Stations around My House Perimeter Be More Likely To Attract Termites To My House?
No. Termites cannot smell timber through the soil. The termites forage through the soil looking for food sources. The Nemesis stations allow such existing termite activity to be intercepted, detected and treated, in many cases before considerable hidden damage occurs to your property.
