Termites Feed On Cellulose And The Wooden Structure Of The House
Termites feed on cellulose and the wooden structure of the house will keep thousands or even millions of termites well-fed for a long period of time. This will cause severe damage to the structure that will be dangerous for you and your family. If you suspect that there might be termites (otherwise known as white ants) in your home, the biggest mistake that you can do is ignoring them. We recommend hiring a professional pest controller for a thorough termite inspection procedure and prevent the infestation from getting worse.
Should I Get A Termite Inspection?
Termites may not give signs that they are invading your house and eating the framework. These tiny pests are very secretive, moving in silence through underground tunnels and inside the wood. There are many cases where they have managed to completely demolish the larger part of the timber from the inside long before the owner finds out.
Additionally, do not assume it’s safe if you live in colder areas. Although cold conditions may slow down the termites to a state of hibernation, it will not kill them. As soon as things began to warm up again, the termites will be back on their feet in no time.
If you are in a termite infestation-prone area, spending a few dollars for a full termite inspection may save you more money in the long run. Masters Pest Control adheres to termite control industry standards to ensure that we get rid of termites the safest and most effective way possible.
What Happens During A Termite Inspection?
A termite inspection is a visual inspection of all the areas of your property in order to determine if there is any activity from timber-destroying bugs or organisms. Our inspection process covers the whole building, both exterior and interior, and includes ceilings, basements and crawlspace areas if any exist. The garden landscape including any trees, wooden fences and buildings such as sheds in close proximity are also part of the complete inspection.
What Should I Expect From A Termite Inspection?
If you are very careful you might manage to come across some subtle signs of their existence. Termite droppings are often the first clue you will come across. They look a lot like grains of sand or sawdust scattered around which is how you can identify them. Their colour varies from brown to beige depending on the termites’ diet. You might be able to discover more evidence of direct timber damage such as structures that resemble a hollow beehive. You may also find wood that sounds hollow when you knock.
How Long Does A Termite Inspection Take?
A thorough pest control termite inspection procedure takes no more than an hour. A simple phone call to our service on (02) 8007 4666 will help you save thousands of dollars in the future when the real damage is apparent. (Related: How to get rid of termites)
What Is Involved In Masters Pest Control Termite Inspection?
It is not always possible to detect the termites through visual inspection. Masters Pest Control uses thermal detection to aid the termite inspection process. Thermal detection enables our pest controller to find signs of infestation even before there are visual signs. This is especially true in the very early stages of a termite infestation.
Although there is no denying that using a regular inspection is the cheaper of the two options, it is not always as accurate as the thermal termite detection. More often than not, the time when a visual inspection spots a termite inspection can be far too late. A thermal detection also enables the pest controller to spot any root areas where the termite nests are. This alone can result in saving you money in the long run.
With thermal detection, there won’t be a need to cause any kind of damage in order to locate the exact spot of the termites’ nest. Most of the traditional pest inspections require some portion of your home to be cut open. This results in additional costs that you will have in order to get those cuts sealed once again. The heat given off by termites can be detected easily with thermal imagery.
Taking advantage of the thermal termite technology will be the best choice that you could make as a homeowner regarding the safety of your home by saving you money in the future. Taking into account the costs that you will have to pay in the long run should the traditional pest inspections fail, you can easily understand why this is by far the better option to choose.
If you still struggle with termites or if you want a complete pest solution that involves not only protecting your family from spiders hiding in areas you haven’t noticed but also other pests such as rats, cockroaches and bed bugs, contact professional services.
