Termite (White Ant) Inspections and Reports
It is strongly recommended that a full termite inspection be carried out every 6 -12 months.
The areas of inspection are the subfloor, interior, roof void, exterior, grounds, fences and garage.
Regular inspections DO NOT STOP timber pest attack, but are designed to limit the amount of
damage that may occur by detecting problems early.
No property is safe from termites.
Statistics from State Forests show that termites attack 1 in 5 homes at some stage in its life.
Australia's subterranean termite species (white ants) are the most destructive timber pests in the world.
Your home provides natural shelter and a food source for termites.
They can travel up to 100 metres underground. Even concrete slabs do not act as a barrier.
Termites can penetrate through cracks in the concrete slab and concrete edging covered by pavers,
paths and gardens to gain access to your home.
Termites form nests in all sorts of locations and are usually not visible.
There may be more than one nest on your property.
Termites love various hardwood and softwood species. These timbers are used in buildings.
