Australian Standards, State Governments and building authorities recommend that all structures have a standard termite inspection carried out at least once a year, but more often in areas of high termite activity. A professional termite inspection is a comprehensive inspection of your buildings and property and is carried out according to Australian Standards AS 3660.2-2017. This is not the same as the free “termite checks” offered by some companies, which regularly miss termite activity as they are not a comprehensive termite inspection.

A termite inspection is like a “health check” on your property, not only checking to see whether termites are attacking your property or are present in your yard, but also identifying issues around the property that need to be remedied to make it less attractive to termites.

In theory, termites could move into your house shortly after an inspection, unless a termite management systems is installed.

Very satisfied with the service provided. Barry is very responsive, professional and great to deal with. He was also very accommodating and was able to do the termite inspection on a Saturday morning, which was very appreciated. Highly recommended!

If you are buying a property, a pre-purchase timber pest inspection is a vital part of the purchase decision – it will provide information on whether there are active termites, borers and wood rot in the property, whether there is any existing damage and whether the property is susceptible to attack.
Pre-purchase inspections are carried out according to Australian Standards AS 4349.3-2010. We do not work for real estate companies so you can be assured we are working in your best interest. We welcome you to be on site during the inspection so we can highlight and discuss any issues that may occur. This can be very important, as a pre-purchase inspection is only a visual inspection – we are not allowed to move items, damage or drill walls. Sometimes sellers try to hide activity and if we are suspicious, we will point it out to you.

Although regular termite inspections are a must it certainly helps if homeowners know the signs of termite activity so they can give their pest manager a call if they spot something suspicious.
