Termites are one of the most destructive pests in Australia. Current building regulation is on managing termites through barrier systems and ongoing inspections as oppose to more harmful methods of controlling termites.

Regular termite inspections by an experienced timber pest inspector is recommended. An inspection of the property should be carried out every 6-12 months to increase the chance of early detection before major damage.

All termite inspections come with a comprehensive report including information related to areas conducive to termite attack and how best to correct the problems as well as details about all timber damage found. We offer a fully detailed visual termite Inspection that meets Australian standards.

Termite Treatment Options

There are now more choices than ever for termite control. The right treatment option for your infestation will depend on the level of infestation, housing construction type and budget available.

Termites are a silent home destroyer, and to our knowledge no home insurance policies cover termite damage. Evidence of termites rarely becomes visable to the home owner until significant and costly damage has already occurred. Our experienced technicians are expertly trained at inspecting the internals and externals of your property for signs of termites. We use thermal cameras, borescopes and moisture detectors, along with other advanced techniques to search for termites.
