Termite Inspections

The Australian Standards recognise that regular termite inspections will not prevent termite attack but may help in the detection of termite activity.  Early detection allows treatments to be carried out sooner and damage to be minimised.  Termite inspections are recommended at intervals not exceeding twelve months, however where the termite risk is high or the building type susceptible to termite attack, more frequent inspections should be undertaken.  To ensure the best inspection it is recommended to move as much as possible away from the wall edges (including excessive stored goods) this will ensure clear access to inspect all areas.  If items are not removed it obstructs the inspection and increases the overall degree of risk of undetected termite attack.

Our termite inspections are carried out in accordance with the Australian Standards AS3660.2 and are conducted as follows;

  • Visual inspection complemented, if required, with the use of a Thermal Imaging Camera and/or a Termatrac T3i, this is a multi-function device with;
    • Motion 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
  • Tapping of all skirting boards & door jambs
  • Inspect sub-floor and roof voids (where accessible)
  • Inspect garden areas
  • Electronic report and recommendations based on findings
