Termite Inspection

A termite inspection is a visual inspection only, carried out by a qualified and experienced technician.

For inspections we use the following equipment:

Moisture Meter: 

Moisture meters are used throughout the course of your inspection and as moisture can attract termites to your property, it is important for us to notify you of all areas where moisture is detected. (Please note a plumber should be called in to inspect all areas where the technician noted moisture was detected and the problem rectified as soon as possible.)

Infrared camera:

Thermal Imaging- A Modern Approach For Termite Detection on your Pest and Building Inspection.

A thermal camera is a non-contact device that detects infrared energy (heat) and converts it into a visual image. Infrared allows us to see what our eyes cannot. A thermal camera is a tool that is used to detect heat signature and sources naturally.

This can Be used on your Pest and Building Inspection if required.

Non-invasive Inspection Procedures:

Tapping on Timbers

Sounding involves the use of a tapping stick, tapped lightly on timber elements such as skirting boards, window and door frames, architraves, cladding, posts and the like. Sometimes the presence of hollow sounding timbers can be an indication of termite damage.
Important: If evidence of damage is located during the inspection, we strongly recommend further investigation be carried out prior to purchase of property

Knocking on walls

This non-invasive procedure involves knocking on all accessible plasterboard walls with the back of a clenched hand or padded mallet to feel for damaged timbers and listening for sounds inside the wall such as damaged timber or termite mudding dropping inside the wall cavity. Please Note: This technique relies on specific conditions to allow the detection of concealed damage. Sufficient termite mudding or structural damage must be present to allow detection. Invasive inspection is always preferable.


This piece of equipment allows viewing of areas that would otherwise be impossible to see into, eg wall cavities, inside trees. Upon completion of an inspection a detailed report is issued , often photos are included, along with comments on improvements/alterations that can be made to the home to reduce risk of termite attack.
If you would like to make an appointment or you would like further information regarding a termite inspection, please do not hesitate to email or call our friendly office staff who will be more than happy to assist you.
