Why have a termite inspection?
With termite damage not covered by most home insurance and 1 in 5 homes suffering termite attack, an annual termite inspection is the first key step in a termite management plan to protect your property.
A termite inspection is not just to inspect your home from termites, but it should look for timber damage, conditions that may make the building more susceptible to termite attack and construction faults or maintenance issues that may make it more likely for termites to enter the building without being noticed.
If the inspection reveals you do indeed have termites it also provides vital information that will allow us to determine the extent of the damage, the species present and how it is accessing the property. This will help to determine the potential termite treatment options needed to eliminate the termites and protect the property.
With this information at hand a termite management plan for the property can be developed, taking into account the termite pressure, building construction and surrounding environment – the plan will often be a combination of termite inspections and a treatment for termites to provide termite protection for your property.

Frequently Asked Queries About Our Termite Inspection Process
What’s Our Standard Inspection Process?
All our termite inspections are carried out according to Australian Standards 3660- Termite Management. However, our termite inspections are much more involved than simply looking for active termites. Our general steps are as follows:
- We look to see if there is any old damage
- We check on whether there are conditions that may make the building more susceptible to attack in the future
- Finally, we provide recommendations on whether there are any building maintenance issues that need to be remedied.
An inspection with us is more like a “health check” for your home. We take our time to go through every area of your home and property (termites are often found in the darkest, dampest corners!) and use the latest termite detection equipment to make sure we don’t miss anything.
How Long Is the Inspection Process?
Typically an inspection on an average 3-4 bedroom home will take us 2.5-3 hours – if you have had an inspection that takes less than an hour, the chances are, they have not done a very thorough job.
What areas of the property do we inspect?
Each inspection comes with a detailed multi-page report with photos. We take our time to explain our findings on site and are happy to talk some more over the phone if you have further questions. We also provide a range of termite prevention tips for homeowners.
What Technology Is Used Against Termites?
Whilst we pride ourselves on our termite expertise and have some of the most experienced termite inspectors in Melbourne, we also use the latest termite detection equipment to help us detect areas of moisture and termite activity behind walls. To highlight some, we use high tech Termite Detectors and Moisture Metres.
- Moisture metres help us identify leaks behind walls and areas where termites may have made their mud packing
- The Termatrac T3i Termite Detector can detect termite movement behind walls and also includes thermal detection which can help pin point hidden termite nests in buildings.
