Is Your Termite Inspection Up To Date?

Termite attack Brisbane

There is always the temptation to delay your termite inspection citing excuses like “the house is still new”, “I keep a good eye on things”, “I don’t need a termite inspection, the house has termi-mesh” or our favourite, “the termites are eating the fence, so they won’t come into the house”. Whether your home is still new or if you do regular checks looking for mud leads, nothing compares to having a trained and experienced professional complete a full termite inspection using a moisture meter, thermal imaging camera and dongle. The Australian Standards recommend having your home inspected by a licensed timber pest technician at least every 12 months.

Thermal imaging with termite inspection

Regardless of whether the home is new or if termi-mesh is installed, regular inspections are essential as an inspector will see things you won’t. A licensed technician will have specialised equipment you don’t have like a moisture meter to gauge whether there is a moisture problem that will attract termites or a thermal imaging camera that will show things hidden behind your walls. Even treated homes need annual termite inspections to ensure the treatment has not been compromised in the 12 months since the previous inspection and there have been no breaches by termites. So, if you have an untreated and a unprotected home, annual inspections are essential to know the threats facing your property and how you can help prevent a termite invasion.

More and more home owners are installing preventive chemical barriers around their homes and enjoying the peace of mind a barrier offers. When you have Results Termite Treatments and Pest Management Services install a chemical barrier around your home, you have a five year warranty so you can rest easy knowing your home is safe against a termite attack.

Some home owners are put off by the cost of installing a chemical barrier but, at the end of the day, the cost of a barrier treatment will always be less than an unknown repair bill.
