If you suspect that there might be termites (otherwise known as white ants) in your home, the biggest mistake that you can make is not do anything. We recommend hiring a professional pest controller thoroughly inspect your property to prevent or stop termite infestations.
Termites feed on cellulose and the wooden structure of the house will keep thousands, maybe even millions of termites nesting somewhere around the vicinity well fed for a long period of time. Unfortunately for you this can and will cause severe damage to the structure of your home and could in fact be the cause of its complete destruction.Call us (02) 8007 4666 Sydney termite inspection
A termite inspection is a visual inspection of all the accessible areas of your property in order to determine if there is any present activity from timber destroying bugs or organisms. Our inspection process covers the whole building, inside and out and includes any basements and areas of crawlspace, if any exist on the property. The garden landscape, including any trees, wooden fences and buildings such as sheds in close proximity are also be part of the complete inspection.

How important is an inspection?
Do not be fooled that you are safe if you live in an area where the temperatures drop down in the winter months. Although cold conditions may slow down the termites to a state of hibernation, they will not kill them. As soon as things began to warm up again, the termites will be back on their feet in no time. Additionally, termites will not in any way give you signs that they are in fact 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 there is any idea by the owners that there might be some sort of a problem. For this reason if you live in an area which is very prone to termite infestation the idea of spending a few dollars every year for a full inspection might be a good way to prevent such things of happening to you.Contact (02) 8007 4666 today!
What to look for
Keeping in mind though vigilance can also be valuable, though it is very unlikely that you will come across a termite wandering around your basement floor. 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 is usually varying from brown to more beige depending on the termites’ diet. Of course, you might be able to discover more evidence of direct timber damage in the form of a structure that resembles hollow beehive, or you may find that when you try knocking on wooden posts and they sound hollow.

Termite inspection and other pests
Using a thermal detection process is a new step in the business. This is a really innovative way of checking whether or not you have been attacked by termites and is deservedly getting more and more attention now. Unfortunately, it is not always possible to detect the termites by using only a visual inspection of the location. Doing the proper inspection is required especially when you are looking into new homes that you think of purchasing or you want to maintain your current home so it does not get infested.
The thing that sets thermal detection apart from the traditional form of inspection is that it gives the pest controller the ability to spot a termite problem before there are any kind of signs visible with the naked eye formed. 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. This is especially true in the very early stages of a termite infestation. Usually, the point when a regular inspection is able to spot out there is a termite infestation is the same as the point when the homeowner is able to see the termites for himself/herself and confirm that his/her home is overrun by them. Which is, as you probably already understand, far too late.
In addition, undertaking a thermal detection has many great benefits that are truly able to outweigh the total cost of the procedure. For starters, the mere idea that using thermal imaging, the pest controller is going to be able to spot any root areas where a termite nest is formed or is currently being formed is perfect for every homeowner. Using thermal detection, the pest controller is able to accurately identify the precise location where the termites have settled. This alone can result in saving you huge amounts of money.
