Termite & Pest Inspections
Pest and Termite Inspections
Pest inspections are essential as a house, building or surrounding landscaping can be affected by any one of several wood destroying pests. Of particular concern are termites (commonly called “white ants”) which can render a house structurally unsound, sometimes in as little as 2 years. Repairs can be expensive and they are not covered by household insurance.
A pest report locates current activity as well as old damage.
Termites can cause significant damage
Termites can cause significant structural damage and are often difficult to detect for an untrained person. Termites work in concealed areas which are not visible or accessible and in extreme cases can cause significant structural damage, to the extent that the building can be condemned as structurally unsound.
Termites work in sophisticated colonies and a thorough knowledge of each type of termite is required to determine the most appropriate eradication. A properly completed pest inspection building report will locate termite entry in accessible areas, as well as provide information on treatment and ways to reduce the risk of further infestations.
