 Termite Inspection Specialists

A Bugcall termite inspection is very comprehensive. We inspect and assess all areas of your property, including –

  • Around the yard – Nearly all outside areas can be affected, especially fencing, tree stumps and retaining walls. Not to mention any timber landscape and other features.

  • Inside the property – Trims, skirting, door jambs, window architraves, doors, cupboards and flooring.

  • Subfloor of the property – All of the bearers, joists, timber piers, timber flooring and stored timbers

  • The roof and ceiling cavity – Any part of the roof, skylights, vents, flues, valleys, guttering, down pipes, eaves, roof battens, trusses, top plates, hanging beams and rafters.

Upon completion of the inspection, we will prepare and present to you a full report, outlining our findings in detail. We will be sure to go over the report with you, so that you have a clear understanding of what everything means.

We are fully licensed, qualified, trained professionals with decades of experience. All of our work is backed by a 100% guarantee.

 

We use the latest technology in Termite detection systems

We have a solid reputation within the industry. When working with Bugcall you’ll know that we will be absolutely thorough.

We use the very latest in technology to detect and identify termites in your home. Infact, we go over and above the Australian standards using equipment that is advanced in locating and detecting active termites.

Equipment we use includes –

Thermal imaging infrared camera

Thermal imaging cameras allow us to detect if there is a water leak caused by moisture, or if there is a termite nest in the wall. Termite nests give off a much different heat signature to that of a simple water leak.

A moisture meter will also alert us of any problems. With the use of these tools, we can precisely detect termite activity in places that would otherwise go unmissed. It also means that you will be removing plasterboard ONLY where necessary, and not “digging around” in order to find the problem.

Borescope camera

This camera allows us to inspect within a wall cavity to determine if there is a fault with a leaking pipe or a problem with termites. This tool is used often to show clients the exact nature of the problem – whether it be a live termite nest or a plumbing issue.

Moisture meter

A moisture meter will also alert us of any problems. With the use of these tools, we can precisely detect termite activity in places that would otherwise go unmissed. 

What if termites are found?

  • We will firstly identify the type of termites found, and assess the extent of the infestation

  • From there, we will provide you with a quote OR we can begin the extermination process immediately

  • You will be kept informed throughout the process so you know what’s going on, and what costs to expect

It should be noted that if live termites are discovered that we strongly recommend you take immediate action. Termites if left untreated can cause extensive amounts of damage to your property

If termites aren’t found, we will still make recommendations as to how you can make improvements around your property to reduce high risk areas.

Common questions about our termite inspection service

How long does an inspection take?

A termite inspection will usually take 45 minutes to 1 hour on a standard sized home. This time will vary depending on your home type. If your home has a sub-floor we will need to inspect under the property if possible. Depending on our findings, there may also be further time and additional detection equipment needed to determine the results of your inspection.

How much does it cost?

Termite inspections starting at $198 for a home, units start at  $176. Pre-purchase pest inspections are $220. For more information about pricing, including treatment costs.
