TERMITE INSPECTIONS

Clearly it is very important to take every action possible to prevent termites and the damage they can do. The most commonly encountered termites are subterranean termites that often live in large underground nests where they travel through the soil and then build mud tunnels to gain access to the timber in your home.

Many people fail to realise, until it’s too late, the extensive damage that termites can cause to modern homes. The Termites remain concealed as they enter your home through underground leads and when inside your home, the worker termites chew up the timber to feed the nest. This frequently leaves the timbers hollow and structurally unsound.

All of our Endapest Services Termite inspections are carried out in accordance with the Australian Standard AS3660.2. It is recommended that inspections be carried out at least once a year or more frequently in high risk areas. Our 35 plus years of inspection experience, equals’ peace of mind.

It is often not until the timbers collapse and the damage is extensive, that you realise you have a termite problem.

Termites, or white ants as they are commonly known, cause serious structural damage to timber and other cellulose based products. The most common species, Coptotermes acinaciformis, is in fact one of the most destructive termite species in the world. Studies have revealed that on average 1 in every 5 homes are attacked at some stage by this destructive pest. In some areas this can be as high a 1 in every 3 homes.

Nearly all homes are at risk of termite attack, not just timber ones.

A CSIRO study found that steel-framed and masonry houses have virtually the same risk of termite attack. Termites can also damage plasterboard, carpets, plastics, books, artwork and electrical insulation. The Australian standard AS3660.2 recommends that termite inspections be carried out at least every 12 months, and more frequently for high risk areas. A termite inspection will not stop termites from attacking your home, however the valuable knowledge gained from our Endapest Services termite experts can reduce the risk of termite attack.

Termite barriers don’t stop termites.

You may be surprised to know that termite barriers built into new houses aren’t actually designed to stop termites getting in; they just make the termites easier to see during inspection. The crucial part of the previous statement is “they just make the termites easier to see during inspection”, therefore if no inspection is carried out, you have next to no protection. Regular termite inspections must be carried out to ensure the installed system can do its job.

Not inspecting for termites can be very expensive.

Termite damage is generally not covered by your home insurance and some building warranties can be invalidated if regular termite inspections are not carried out.

Visual Termite Inspection Report

A Endapest Services visual termite inspection report is applicable to all homes and properties, whether they be residential or commercial, and will cover all accessible areas such as roof voids, subfloors, the internal living areas and all external areas of the property including out-buildings garages, sheds, studios, granny flats, fences, trees, stumps, landscaping timbers and retaining walls. A report is compiled highlighting any termite activity or damage found. We will also make reference to conditions that make your home more favourable to termites, gardens to high against house, poor drainage, plumbing leaks, untreated garden and landscaping timbers etc. We may also include any treatment recommendations and signs of previous treatments. Depending on the construction type of your home a more invasive inspection is available and may be recommended.

Termites (commonly known as White Ants) cause hundreds of millions of dollars of damage to homes and buildings every year. Most termite pests in Australia are subterranean ground dwelling that live in a colony which can contain several million individual termites. Termites can travel up to one hundred meters, but more commonly only travel up to 75 meters through mud tubes or galleries from their main colony to a particular food source that could be your home. These colonies can be very difficult to find and are sometimes located in trees, stumps, walls, under floors of homes or even under concrete slabs.

New termite colonies are established when winged termites fly from their colony in their thousands when climatic conditions are favourable, usually between November through to February.
