Picture of a termite nest in wall cavity with FUMAPEST Sydney Pest Control's Michael DuBois examining a large above-ground termite nest built inside a wall cavity of a home.
Termites build such nests, where moisture collects inside the wall cavity, from leaking pipes, shower recess, faulty guttering and down-pipes.
Your best protection is to arrange for a Termite Inspection and Report to Australian Standard 3660, including written specifications for a complete Termidor soil barrier treatment, where practicable, to protect your home. Prevention is better than cure.

Nemesis termite bait contains an IGR insect growth regulator that prevents the worker termite from regrowing it's external skeleton after moulting. Worker termites ingesting the bait will feed partly digested timber and the termite bait to other termites in the central nest. Termites cannablise other dead termites thereby hastening elimination of the entire colony ... more details
