Tips to Help Reduce Risk of Termite Attacks

You should have your property regularly inspected for termites but to help reduce your risk of termite attack, below are some handy tips on things that you can do:

  • Where possible, ensure that your roof void is accessible for a termite inspection
  • If your property has a sub-floor, ensure that it has good cross-floor ventilation, drainage, and access for a termite inspection
  • Make sure your weep holes aren’t covered by garden beds or pavers
  • Make sure the external edge of your concrete slab has at least a 50mm inspection zone from the top of the slab
  • Repair any leaking hoses, drains and pipes and direct the runoff from your hot water systems and air conditioners away from the property
  • Remove any firewood or building materials from against your property or under the sub-floor
  • Remove dead trees, fallen branches, old wood and stumps from your property.
  • Only use treated timbers for garden beds or retaining walls.

Termite Inspection FAQ

No. Some pest management companies claim to carry out a termite check, typically at a considerably cheaper price than the current market rate for a termite inspection or even for free.

A termite check is a marketing term, it is typically a brief look around a property for obvious signs of termite activity but does not include accessing roof voids or subfloors and does not include a comprehensive inspection report.

A termite inspection carried out to Australian Standard 3660.2:2017 Termite Management Part 2: In and around existing buildings and structures, will typically take around an hour and a half for a standard 3-to-4-bedroom home and includes an assessment of the building interior, excluding furniture and stored items, the building exterior including any trees, stumps and timbers, any accessible roof voids and sub-floor spaces.

Following the termite inspection, you would receive a detailed termite inspection report with a day or two.

Unless it is a high-end camera used by a qualified sonographer, no.

There are low end thermal imaging cameras available for under $1,000.00 that some pest management technicians claim they can use to perform a termite check on your property.

As they reply on detecting temperature differences, unless there is a large termite nest in a wall, which you would hope that a professional pest management technician would detect without a thermal imaging camera, the camera is more likely to detect a rodent than a termite lead.

Consider how accurate a camera relying on changes in temperature would be in subtropical northern NSW and southeast QLD, where the external walls of a property can often be extremely hot, while the air conditioned internal walls can often be considerably cooler.

No, most properties are furnished, carpeted, have roof insulation and stored products, it would be unrealistic to expect a property to be emptied each year for its annual termite inspection.

A termite inspection is a visual inspection by a professional pest management technician that uses their training and experience to look for signs and evidence of termite activity or conditions that are conducive to termite attack.
