A termite inspection is the first step in termite management

Australian conditions are particularly suitable for termites, supported by the common acknowledgement that one in three homes will be attacked by termites in its lifetime.

A termite inspection, also referred to as a Visual Termite Pest Inspection, is a crucial step in preventing serious damage to your home.

A comprehensive, professional termite inspection will:


Detect any live termites and other timber pests on the property


Uncover any previous termite activity or damage


Identify any high risk areas that are attractive to termites (known as conducive conditions)


Assess the degree of risk of future termite infestation


Recommend appropriate termite management strategies

The Australian standard recommends that a termite inspection be carried out at least every 12 months and more often in higher risk situations.

Why every 12 months?  Because the less time that termites have to get established, the less damage they can cause!

After all, just because they’re not here today doesn’t mean they won’t be here tomorrow!

The inspection process

When a termite inspection is carried out, we inspect accessible areas of the home or building.  This includes the grounds, the exterior of the home, the subfloor if accessible, inside the home and in the roof void.  The garage and any other accessible structures are also inspected.

In each of the areas inspected, our inspector is gaining a knowledge of the risk factors, any previous activity and corresponding damage and is assessing what methods of control might need to be put in place to prevent any infestation in the future.

All termite inspections carried out by Pestgo are in accord with the applicable Australian standard.  A comprehensive report is provided which details the areas inspected and any conducive conditions such things as poor ventilation or drainage or inappropriately stored timbers.  It will also contain any recommendations for ongoing termite management.

Our inspections are extremely comprehensive and take at least 1.5 hours to complete.

So if it’s been more than 12 months since your last termite inspection, contact us today to book one in.
