Visual Termite Inspection Report

Timber Pest Technicians are required to conduct Visual Termite Inspections to Australian Standards (AS3660.2) although we exceed these standards during our inspections to ensure you receive a comprehensive Visual Termite Inspection. We provide an electronic report complete with results from the inspection, photos, and recommendations to reduce termite conducive conditions at your property. The report is emailed to you same day and we are always here to answer any questions you may have. We also offer a free post termite inspection consultation at your property to discuss termite management.

Areas Inspected

During the Inspection we will inspect internal and external of your home; this includes all rooms, the roof void (if accessible), subfloor (if accessible), gardens and surrounding areas (including garden sheds and granny flats). We take the time to conduct a comprehensive Visual Termite Inspection at your home because we understand that your home is a valuable asset that you would like to protect against Termite attack and the extensive damage that can be caused.

Tools

The specialised tools we use are specifically designed for Visual Termite Inspections and required to be used to perform a Visual Termite Inspection (AS3660.2) to Australian Standards. The sounding stick is used to “sound” all accessible timbers internal and external of your home listening for a hollow sound, this can indicate a possible Termite infestation within the timbers.

Termite Inspection Tools

Termatrac Device

A Termatrac device specifically designed for the pest control industry using advanced sensors. Detect and track termite activity with non-invasive technology.

Borescope

The Borescope is a tool used for invasive Termite Inspections and requires drilling a small hole in your wall void or cavity that is deemed necessary for further investigation (of course we will inform you that further investigation is recommended and seek your approval beforehand).

Thermal Image Camera

Industry-leading thermal imaging device. The Thermal imaging camera does not see through walls, it indicates the wall surface temperature which aides with the inspection process.  If unusual wall surface temperature is detected it may indicate Termite activity and further investigation is required.

Moisture Metre

The moister meter is used to measure the moister content of the timber and determine if it unusually moist and further investigation is required.
