Our termite inspections involve so much more than just shining a torch around a bashing the odd bit of timber in a house!
It involves understanding buildings, timber and various timber pests, as well as being thorough in checking for moisture and other conducive conditions.
Here is a classic example of Lyctus timber borer damage we have discovered during routine termite inspections. Though not normally within the scope of a termite inspection (a timber pest inspection is ie. Pre purchase inspection) the damage found during these inspections was noted and communicated to the owner as a courtesy. If you are concerned about termites AND timber pest. Then get a timber pest inspection.
