Timber and Pest Inspections for Termites (White Ants)

Termite damage
Termite inspection
Subterranean termites are by the far the most destructive timber pests in Australia and pose a real threat to both new and existing homes and buildings. Termite surveys have found 1 in 3 homes in Australia will be affected by termites at some stage, which is more prevalent than damage caused by fire, storm and flood combined. All too often the presence of these silent invaders goes undetected until the termite damage is severe.

The Australian Standard for Termite Protection (AS3660) recommends that regular competent inspections be carried out every 12 months or more frequently in areas of higher termite risk or known activity. The Standard does advise that even a correctly installed and complete termite barrier system cannot completely guarantee prevention of termite attack as termites can potentially breach or bridge over the barrier. Evidence of termites bridging or breaching a barrier can be detected during regular termite inspections, carried out by a qualified pest management technician.

The non-invasive timber pest inspection includes all structural timbers, decorative timbers, landscaping and surrounding trees where accessible. All findings from the inspection will be clearly documented in a comprehensive written report. Areas covered in the report include subterranean termites, borer, fungal decay (wood rot) and environmental issues that may increase the risk of termite attack to your home. Our technicians will also report on other pests such as ants, spiders and rodents, which can also cause damage to your property.

The Building Code and Australian Standard for Termite Protection require all new homes, extensions and renovations to be protected against the concealed entry of subterranean termites from the ground into the building.
Australian Standards for Termite Protection (AS 3660) recommends that regular competent inspections be carried out at least once a year
