Essentially a Pest Inspection Report is designed to:
Detect old damage and active termites or borers.The Report gives you information on reducing the chances of termite infestation.Gives us enough information to accurately quote you on a termite treatment.Most importantly, the report is designed to educate you.The inspection will determine the extent of the infestation where the termites are entering the building and also what steps need to be carried out to eradicate any termites present and protect your home & building from further attack.
A termite inspection is a visual inspection only, carried out by a qualified and experienced technician.
An Inspections cover the following:
The readily accessible areas of the building and the site including:
- The home interior
- home exterior
- roof space (pending access)
- subfloor space (if app)
- the grounds inc fences and trees within the property up to a distance of 50 meters from the home.
A written report for your perusal will be given on completion of the inspection and termite treatment recommendations will be proposed if and where necessary in accordance with the Australian Standards (AS 3660).
It is important to note that the Australian Standards (AS3660) recommend a termite inspection be carried out to your property every 3-6 months and as our duty of care we forward reminder letters to our customers at regular intervals.Standard Termite Inspections: These are suited to the home owner, many new homes are covered with a warranty “Provided that the home has had annual termite inspections”.Regular Termite Inspections: (at least every 12 months) are very important, this provides you with the best chance of detecting Termite activity before any or much damage in done.
For inspections we use following equipment:
Moisture meters are used throughout the course of your inspection and as moisture can attract termites to your property, it is important for us to notify you of all areas where moisture is detected. (Please note a plumber should be called in to inspect all areas where the technician noted moisture was detected and the problem rectified as soon as possible.)
Termatrac can detect termites through Timber, Plaster board, Brick or Masonry with out disturbing them this allows for a more effective treatment. With no drilling, tapping or prodding of the timbers of your home.
How Does It Work ?
Termatrac, explained simply emits signals which penetrate the material that is being tested. If these signals are interrupted by termite activity, the liquid crystal display will alert the operator by showing up on the readout.
- Tracking the extent of activity without disturbance.
- Tracking to an entry point.
- Location of nests via entry point.
- Choice of treatment method.
- Don’t risk a lesser inspection !!
This piece of equipment allows viewing of areas that would otherwise be impossible to see into, eg wall cavities, inside trees. Upon completion of an inspection a detailed report is issued , often photos are included, along with comments on improvements/alterations that can be made to the home to reduce risk of termite attack.
