Pest Inspections

We carry out pest inspections; also referred to as termite inspections.  The pest inspection is a thorough inspection of the residential or commercial structure to determine whether there are active termites on site or if there are termite workings or damage which would indicate that there has previously been termites.  If there is no  termite management system installed or if the current system is deemed to be inadequate our Termite Manager will recommend and advise on the best suited termite management system.  All the above will be documented in an electronic report with pictures supporting the findings.  The pest inspection report will also include any conditions in and around the property that are conducive to termite attack as well as recommendations to reduce termite pressure on the building.  The pest inspection report will advise how frequently the termite inspections should be carried out; generally this would be annually, however certain factors like construction design, surrounding environmental pressures and conducive conditions can influence the need  for more more regular inspections.  Our termite inspections are carried out in accordance with Australian Standards AS3660.2.  If required the inspections are complemented with state of the art technology; a Thermal Imaging Camera; also known as an Infrared Camera (picture bottom right) or a Termatrac T3i (picture bottom left), this is a multi-function device with;

  • termite detection radar – using an ultrasonic radar this can accurately detect termites through most building materials
  • moisture sensor – accurately records the concentrated presence of moisture identifying high risk areas
  • thermal sensor – accurately detects the heat generated by termites within building structures
