TIMBER PEST INSPECTIONS
TIMBER PEST INSPECTION
A thorough inspection for termite or other timber pest activity and/or damage by a qualified and experienced Capital Pest Management timber pest technician is the first step toward finding the right solution for your property and budget.
Capital Pest Management Timber Pest Inspectors are trained and experienced in detecting the visual symptoms revealing a subterranean termite infestation or possible flaws in your property’s defence.
The inspection covers not only the readily accessible internal areas of your property, but also an assessment of the external areas up to 50m or the boundary line of your property.
Inspections are performed using the following tools that complement the experience and knowledge of your Capital Pest Management operator:
- Visual assessment
- Sounding areas with an ‘inspection probe’ – an extendable handled probe with a retractable sounding ball on the end
- Moisture meter – an electronic device that detects moisture migration, a possible sign of termite activity
- Termatrac movement detector – the radar technology confirms movement by penetrating through most building materials to locate and track termite and other insect activity
- A borescope – a tool inserted into a small hole to visually assess voids and some inaccessible areas
The inspection process typically takes 1-2 hours depending on the size and nature of your property.
An accurate snapshot of your property’s termite exposure and/or damage status is crucial to the formulation of your battle plan.
Following your inspection, Capital Pest Management will formulate a detailed report, including appropriate recommendations for impeding, monitoring and eliminating termites on your property.
Our comprehensive report will contain detailed information on the following:
- Any visual evidence and the extent of any timber pest activity located in the readily accessible areas around and within your property.
- A summary of any timber pests identified and a brief description of their potential to cause damage to your property.
- How susceptible your property is to timber pest invasion.
- Recommendations for a management plan to attack any current infestation and aid in reducing any future risk of infestation.
- Recommendations for improving the environment around your property, making it less suitable for subterranean termites and other pests of timber.
- Report on any pre-existing property management plan and make recommendations to ensure its effectiveness whilst educating you on its maintenance requirements.
