Termites are very difficult to locate as they only require a 1mm gap to gain access and will live in concealed areas of the home. In Australia, damages from termites are generally not covered by the normal home protection insurance. Because these pests are difficult to locate and it being a difficult process, inspections need to be carried out by our professional technicians who have extensive training and the right tools that are necessary, along with all the experience required to find termites.
Our technicians will carry out a thorough property inspection and inform you of the particular termite species infesting your home and what will be the most effective termite control method. We will provide you with a full written proposal for the eradication and future control of the termites.

There are some signs you can look out for when determining if you have a termite infestation:
Termites can damage homes quickly and in most cases their activities are gone unnoticed causing significant problems to home owners damaging up to 34,000 Australian homes every year, with an average repair bill of $10,000 or more which may not be covered by home and contents insurance.
