When the Nemesis Termite Baiting System was first introduced into the Australian pest control market back in 2005 many of our competitors scoffed at it still being in existence today. Let alone being the premier all-Australian termite baiting system a decade on. And whilst 2015 marks the 10th anniversary for the PCT International developed system, many professional pest controllers expect it will continue to set the benchmark for a flexible, quality and value-for-money termite baiting system for some time to come says David Pearson, Managing Director of PCT International Pty Ltd.
The Nemesis Termite Baiting System was introduced in 2005 as a new termite management system and at that time was the only all-Australian designed and manufactured system. In its first year in the marketplace Nemesis achieved a 30% share of the Australian or domestic termite baiting market, with 30,000 installations completed within the first 18 months. Ten years on Nemesis not only supports the domestic pest-control market, but is now being exported to countries in the Asia-Pacific and Middle East.
Certainly a lot of the success of Nemesis stems from the systems components. For example the unique design of the bait stations, both in-ground and above-ground, are purpose designed to better intercept termites while being adaptive to site conditions. The accurate and uniformly distributed concentration of the active constituent, chlorfluazuron, ensures the bait is highly effective. The 100gm sachets are pre-measured to assist operators in the correct and cost-effective application. And the sachet can be used as a station in situations where plastic stations cannot be used.
However it’s the flexibility that the Nemesis Termite Baiting System affords the professional pest controller that adds to the systems popularity. With Nemesis the pest manager can make his/her own judgement as to how to use the system. Each site is different and the pest manager has flexibility as to how to apply the system to achieve the best outcome, subject to the directions of use. With Nemesis no site fees apply, no computer records or proof of usage needs to be provided. No sharing of private customer information, no levels of restricted entry to become a Nemesis Accredited user. Nemesis can be used either as a stand-alone system or for monitoring in conjunction with a Terminade treatment for example.
With many pest professionals facing increasing cost pressures it really makes sense for operators to think and look locally for solutions that suit local conditions and get the quality after sales support they need. Nemesis through Agserv and PCT International offers just that.
