Professional termite inspection services will typically start the inspection on the exterior of the home. This is done to find any termite activity or nests in downed timbers, stumps and wooden fence lines as well as sheds or garages that pose a risk to your home. After a thorough inspection of the exterior they will then check the main building for the same factors.
There are a number of ways to schedule a termite inspection. It’s best to compare pest inspection services in your area. Once you have decided on the right one for you, hop on their website and request a quote for your home or business.
Summer is considered termite season. In order to make sure your home is safe you should get a yearly termite inspection. If your home is set amongst bushland it will be at higher risk and should be inspected for termites more frequently. This is mainly due to termite activity in garden timber and/or stumps where termites like to nest.
It’s important to prepare your home for a pest inspection by doing the following:
- Take care that all walls are accessible and move any furniture that may restrict access - this includes inside sheds, garages and underneath the house.
- Empty out cupboard spaces so the inspector can easily look inside.
- Remove items from under the sinks and other areas in your bathrooms and kitchen.
- Cut back unkempt bushes and remove unnecessary overgrowth, especially close to the home or other buildings.
