7 Questions to Ask a Termite Inspector

Questions to Ask a Termite Inspector

If you’ve got a termite inspection pencilled into your diary you may be wondering what questions you should ask the termite inspector.

Below we share seven queries which should be raised either before or during the inspection.

7 Questions to Ask a Termite Inspector

  • How much experience do you have with termites? (What are your qualifications?)

Termites can by hard to detect by the untrained eye.

That’s why it’s vital that your inspector has sufficient training and experience uncovering these destructive timber pests AND determining the likelihood of future termite attacks.

  • How do I prepare for a termite inspection?

There are several simple tasks homeowners[MB1]  can carry out prior to an inspection to make our technician’s job easier and ensure the inspection is as effective as possible.

They include:

  • Moving furniture and household items away from walls inside and outside.
  • Ensure our technicians can access hard-to-reach spaces like storage areas, attics or crawl spaces.
  • Trim overgrown trees and bushes that limit access to a property’s foundation.
  • How much does a termite inspection cost?

At the time of publishing, the cost of a termite inspection was $xxx.

Where termites are detected, the cost of termite management and treatment will be additional to the amount above.

Did you know some of our customers enjoy our combined services discount when they book a termite inspection and another service (Carpet cleaning, pest control or rodent inspection) at the same time?

  • How long does a termite inspection take?

Generally, a termite inspection is around an hour in length, however, it can take longer if any issues are uncovered.

  • What aftercare do you provide, if any?

If we have not located termites, we will book your next inspection. Where the risk of termite activity is low to normal, we would schedule this within the next twelve months. Where the risk is higher, we would recommend more frequent inspections.

If an infestation is found, we implement a personalised management program. We then carry out follow-up visits to ensure all the destructive pests are eradicated and being kept at bay.

  • How susceptible is my home to a termite attack?

During the inspection we will determine any risk factors which could increase the chance of a termite attack.

We will share our findings with you so you can keep an eye on any problem areas and help to prevent a termite colony settling in. Read more about the recommendations we make below.

  • How can I best protect my property between inspections?

While most homeowners have termite inspections every twelve months, you should be vigilant in between assessments and keep an eye out for any signs of termites, like mud tubing, discarded termite wings and timber damage. [MB2] 

Following an inspection, our termite managers will also make tailored recommendations to each homeowner. These will be aimed at reducing the risk of a future termite attack on the property and could include measures such as installing a termite chemical barrier, termite baiting systems, or even more frequent inspections.

We will deliver our findings and recommendations to you in a report within 24 hours of the inspection. [MB3]
