Inspections FAQs



Why is it important to have a termite inspection?


One in three homes in Australia will be affected by termites (white ants) at some stage.
Termites are by far the most destructive timber pests in Australia.
Termites pose a real threat to both new and existing homes and buildings.
These silent invaders often go undetected until severe damage is done.
Most insurance policies do not cover termite damage.
A correctly installed and completed termite barrier systems cannot completely guarantee prevention against termite attack.

How often should I get a termite inspection?

We strongly recommend that a full termite inspection is carried out on all properties every 12 months.

Why should I have my home inspected every 12 months?

It is recommended that dwellings should be inspected every 12 months as potential damage by termites over this period is usually manageable. For properties that have been assessed as high risk, inspections should be more frequent.

I've had my home treated, why do I need an annual inspection?

Disturbances of treated areas can often occur unbeknown to the home owner which can lead to termites breaching the termiticide barrier. If physical termite barriers are installed these will expose termite egress which is then detected by the inspector, before major structural damage occurs. There is no 100% guarantee that following treatments, termites will not return. This is why it is essential that your property is inspected at least every 12 months.
