What we look for when undertaking a termite inspection

When our pest controllers conduct a visual termite inspection we are not only just looking for active termites within the property we are also inspecting and reporting any areas that are conducive for termite attack which could bring termites into the areas and dramatically increase the risk of termites attacking your property there are a number of things we are keeping an eye for here are some conducive conditions we recently found during an visual termite inspection.

Hot water overflow & air conditioning units

This is the hot water overflow from systems like hot water systems, air conditioning units if these are not connected to drainage and are attached close to house and constantly dripping in to soil near the house or in sub-floor can attract termites to the area due to the excess moisture it created.

Solution

This must be redirected to a drain by a licensed plumber or a container placed underneath and emptied every now and then.

Form work

Timber form work is usually used by builders when constructing house or supporting concrete areas such as bathrooms but many times builders will forget to remove it and termites are attracted to this timber because it is in contact with the soil and in usually in moist areas the termites will use it to travel or bridge to other areas of your home

Solution

Physically remove all form work timber as well as removal or any loose timbers from sub-floor area.

Soil Bridging

This is where soil is bridging areas or your home from either the slab edge or in this case the wall sheeting this gives termites a clear undetected entry point into your home with out you even noticing they are there until it is to late.

Solution

Remove soil away from the slab Edge or exterior wall sheeting so there is a clear inspection zone so termite can’t gain access undetected and will have to show themselves.
