Having local knowledge when conducting a Termite Inspection in Brisbane is a great advantage. Brisbane and surrounding suburbs fall under different Termite risk zones. Our Inspectors have years of experience in the industry and know if your property sits in a high risk area. If is does fall under the high risk zone, there is no reason to panic. It’s easy to be better prepared for a White Ant infestation with 1300 Pest Control.

 

What is a Termite Inspection?

Everyone knows that Termites feed on wood but they especially love moist wood. Termites themselves are made up of 95% moisture. Houses and this includes steel frame houses contain wooden frames or structural elements which are susceptible to Termite Damage. Termites eat from the inside out so activity can go unnoticed until considerable damage has been done.

A Termite Inspection is conducted by a Inspector that holds a current Timber Pest Licence, not just a general pest licence.  Our Inspectors at 1300 Pest Control have a current Timber Pest Licence AND general pest licence. Our senior Inspectors are qualified builders which means they are qualified to carry out Building Inspections in Brisbane.

The inspector uses an array of tools to detect signs of Termite activity. These may include;

  • A Moisture Meter – This electronic device detects moisture migration
  • Video Inspection/Boroscope – This allows the inspection inside wall cavities
  • Thermal Radar – Termatrac T3i is the most advanced termite inspection device in the world
  • Acoustic Probes – For hearing termite activity within walls

Using these tools our inspector will look for signs of termite activity both inside and outside. All timber and other accessible structual timber frames, joists, rafters and bearing are inspected. Externally, foundation soils, landscaping timbers, pavers, trees and tree stumps are looked at.

A Termite Inspection Report will state whether there is evidence of timber pest activity as well as indicate areas of concern for future timber pest activity.

 

The majority of our work is Termite Control in Brisbane and surrounding suburbs. 1300 Pest Control specialise in Termite Management. We strongly recommend the installation of a Termite Barrier for the best in Termite Protection. There are several versions of Termite Barriers so that is why we offer a free friendly onsite quote.

 

At 1300 Pest control we strongly recommend an annual Termite Inspection for Brisbane properties.
