Having local knowledge when conducting a termite inspection is a great advantage. Australia and its states fall under different termite risk zones. Our recommended inspectors have years of experience in the industry and know if your property sits in a high-risk area. If it does fall under the high-risk zone, there is no reason to panic. It’s easy to be better prepared for a termite infestation with the recommended technicians at Pest Control Heroes.
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 only by a licensed inspector. Rest assured that our inspectors at Pest Control Heroes have a current pest licence.
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 structural 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.
