NEMESIS is an Australian termite bait system designed to attract and eliminate termite colonies in a safe non invasive way. It uses an insect growth regulator (IGR), Chlorfluazuron, as the active constituent in the Nemesis bait. Chlorfluazuron, the insect growth regulator used in Nemesis Termite Bait, inhibits the ability of the individual termites to synthysize chitin.  Active termites feed on the highly attractive bait food source & translocate the IGR to other members of the colony, at levels undetectable by those termites, until the colony collapses. Nemesis termite bait is a registered product under the requirements of legislation administered by the Australian Pesticides and Vetinary Medicines Authority.

The bait is based upon proven insect growth regulator technology. Termites moult, that is they shed their exoskeletons, because they cannot reproduce chitin, they are unable to replace this skeleton and thus perish. The termite colony loses whole generations and collapses as a consequence. The bait matrix is manufactured using pure food grade cellulose.


  • Chlorfluazuron has proven to be extremely effective for termite baiting becuase:
  • It is a benzoylphenyl urea insect growth regulator which inhibits the synthesis of chitin
  • Only one gram per kilo of Chlorfluazuron is required to effectively controll termite colonies
  • Its delayed mode of action allows widespread transfer within the colony for maximum secondary kill
  • It is effective against all sub-species of subterranean termites with the exception of Mastotermes Darwinius
  • Chlorfluazuron is practically non-toxic due to the mammals, birds, fish and earthworms (Tomlin 1997)
  • It slowly degrades in water
  • It is strongly absorbed to soil with a Kd of 120-990
  • Its half life in soil varies from 6 weeks to a few months
