Pest Inspections

In Australia there is a strong need for a Pre Purchase Inspection and an annual Pest Inspection because termites and other timber pests can cause costly damage to property if not detected.

If you are purchasing a property, we can arrange a Building and Pest Inspection at a suitable time with the vendor or agent to carry out a thorough investigation of the home or office.

Termites feed on wood, so if your home contains wooden frames or structural elements, then your property is at risk of a Termite Infestation and Termite Damage that could cost you thousands.


The Pest Inspection detects any Termite activity before the cost of Termite Damage to your structure is excessive.  Following our Pest Inspection our Timber Pest Technician can advise you on Termite Prevention measures that can reduce the risk of Termite Infestation and Termite Damage.

Detecting Termite Damage through Pest Inspection

Termite Damage often goes undetected for some time because termites eat from the inside out, so termite damage can be substantial by the time it is detected. It is therefore highly recommended to have and annual Pest Inspection on your property by a qualified timber pest technician.

Signs of Termite Infestation and Termite Damage:

> Wood that sounds hollow when tapped
> Gaps or crumbling wooden beams
> Termite mud tubes, which run above ground and are built by Termites as tunnels to avoid exposure.

DIY or Professional?

Most DIY methods for Termite Control are not effective or successful long term strategies.


When you consider the value of your property, scheduling an annual Pest Inspection by a qualified, licenced professional for your property is a sound investment.


Approximately half of all Pest Controllers are not properly licenced or fully insured for the work they carry out. Don’t just settle for the quickest turn-around or the cheapest price as you may not always be getting what you thought you were paying for.

1300 PEST CONTROL guarantees you peace of mind by only ensuring all Technicians are experienced, qualified, licenced and fully insured.


Our quality termite controllers will carry out a thorough inspection of your property, the foundations, the inner structural elements, fencing and all wood products in and around the house and provide you with advice on a tailored Termite Management System (TMS) that best suits your property.

1300 Pest Control is the Number you Know and Trust!

Our technicians can be trusted to carry out a professional job.  They have a full Timber Pest Licence, Professional Indemnity and Public Liability Insurance.


All Pest Inspections are carried out to Australian Standards or greater.


Pest Inspections are very thorough, at least 1 hour for an average house.  The Inspector will need access to all rooms including the ceiling cavity.


The Pest Inspection is performed with an array of tools and thorough Visual Inspection of the premises.  These tools can include but are not limited to:


  • Moisture Meter – an electronic device that detects moisture migration.  Termites are almost 100% moisture and so this is a required tool in inspections.
  • Video Inspection/ Boroscope – allows inspectors to see inside of wall cavities, trees and other structures (only with the approval of the property owner).
  • Termatrac – Radar device. Termatrac is a valuable tool that is used to determine the likelihood of termite activity in a particular location.
  • Thermal Imaging – infrared technology that detects hot spots in wall cavities. Can assist in Termite Detection in conjunction with other methods of detection.
  • Inspection Probes (Sounding Donger)/ Listening devices – important for hearing termite activity within the buildings walls.
  • Pest Inspection Report – will be provided within 24 hours documenting termite activity and the risk of Termite Infestation.

Termite Control has advanced significantly in recent years.  All 1300 PestControl branches support Industry best practices and keep up to date with the continuing improvements in Pest Inspection, Termite Treatment and Termite Prevention.
