Why Should I Have A Termite Inspection?
Just because you live in Australia’s largest city Sydney does not mean your house may not get attacked. Even with very few trees in the city we still see a lot of termite activity and evidence of previous activity in the center of Sydney. We offer our termite control services and inspections in the Sydney city center, northern beaches, the shire, out in the western suburbs. Regular inspections are essential for early detection.
The Australian Standards 3660.2 recommends a termite inspection be done at intervals not exceeding annually. In some cases more frequently depending on your risk of attack. The aim of doing them so frequently is so that ideally they can be detected before they have done extensive damage to your property and that it is repairable at a lower more affordable cost. So don’t wait for tomorrow, contact us today!
Termite Treatments in Sydney
When we provide a quote we like to think of your property as our own. How would we protect it the best way possible.
We prefer to offer chemical management systems where possible as long term they work out a lot cheaper for you. In most cases we use Termidor or Termidor HE. If we can not install a chemical management system or you are after a more environmentally friendly solution, we would recommend the use of monitoring stations which can come with timber in them or now pre baited. At the end of the day we make the recommendations based on what we think will work best for you and we listen to what you want/ We will try and work out a program that will eradicate the termites from your house the best way possible

Termite Detection Dogs in Sydney
What sets us apart from our competitors is that we use the super noses of dogs. Watch our termite detetction dog Darcy during an inspection in Sydney. Whilst we were not able to see anything due to his indication we recommended that a more invasive inspection be done. On moving the kick panel from under the cupboard we were able to locate active termites. These would have been missed with a regular visual inspection. You will also note how calmly Darcy works through a house.
We have a better chance of detecting termites than possibly 99% of all Australian pest control firms. As Darcy relies on scent, he is far more likely to find them where a person alone would fail. When a house is constructed on a concrete slab or has restricted access in the sub-floor a person can not see where the termites may be gaining entry to your house it is described in a report as an obstruction along with wall linings, insulation, floor coverings on every house. Whilst these factors are a visual obstruction for a person, they do not effect a the odour and a trained detection dog.
What happens during a termite inspection?
Our technicians use their experience and professional training to carry out a comprehensive inspection of your home or business premises. We inspect all accessible areas of the building where applicable, sub floor, roof void, interior, grounds etc, all in accordance with the Australian Standard. We will be looking for live termites, previous damage and any factors that may contribute to possible attack in the future (conducive conditions).
Darcy our detection dog can be used if he has been requested and our thermal camera, you should note that there is no standard for the use of a thermal cameras in our industry and we do not claim to be qualified thermographers. We use our training provided and industry knowledge to determine if we think there is a thermal anomaly that warrants further investigation and if necessary we will use our Termatrac machine.
Once the inspection is complete we will discuss any issues we may have detected and rectification work that may be required to reduce the potential risk of future attack. You will also be forwarded an extensive report with all our findings and in most cases photos of highlighted areas.
You will find our prices are very competitive for the level of service we provide and equipment we use. With a quick phone call or email we will be able to give you a free no obligation quote on having a termite inspection done with a trained detection dog. We can service anything from a terrace house to a mansion or strata buildings.
I Have Found Termites What Should I Do?
Firstly DO NOT panic your house is not going to fall down over night. Try and take a clear photo of just a 1 or 2 of the insects you have found and have an idea of roughly how big they are. You may find that someone will be able to give you and identification off the photo, determining if you actually have a problem or not. Then cover the area back up as best you can. Most importantly do not spray them with anything. This can make your treatment more difficult.
Contact your pest control technician, make sure they are qualified and insured to treat termites as not everyone is. They should come out to assess your property and give you the best options. You should not that treatments can vary a lot in price. This can be because of the option you have been given or the firm you are using. A cheap job may be a cheap job and an expensive job may be quality job or you are getting robbed so getting 2 or 3 opinions may not be a bad idea. Quiz them on what they are going to do, what products they want to use and why. When getting multiple quotes this can sometimes be more confusing hence why you ask the questions, make sure there is similarities in their answers and go with who you trust.
