The Silent Invaders

Termites are often referred to as "silent invaders" for a reason. They work tirelessly, 24/7, without making any noise or leaving visible signs of their presence. By the time you notice the telltale signs, such as damaged wood or discarded wings, the infestation has likely been ongoing for months or even years. This is why termite inspections are crucial in safeguarding your home. At Whitsunday Wizard Termite and Pest Control experts we specialise in termite inspections, protection and regular maintenance.

Preventing Costly Damage

The cost of termite damage can be staggering. In the Australia alone, termites cause hundreds of millions of dollars in property damage each year. At Whitsunday Wizard our aim is to reduce and totally avoice the requirement for repairing the structural harm caused by these pests. Not only can termite damage be expensive to fix, but also disruptive to your life. Termite inspections serve as a preventive measure, enabling you to catch an infestation in its early stages when the damage is minimal and repairs are less costly. 

What Does a Residential Termite Inspection Involve?

A residential termite inspection with Whitsunday Wizard Termite and Pest Control is a thorough examination of your home's interior and exterior, including the basement, crawl spaces, roof space, and all accessible wooden structures. This inspection is conducted by our licensed pest control professionals (also known as certified home inspectors) who specializes in termite detection. Here's what the process generally entails:

  1. Visual Inspection: The inspector carefully examines all visible wooden elements of your home, looking for signs of termite activity. This may include mud tubes, damaged wood, or discarded wings.
     

  2. Probing and Tapping: To assess the integrity of the wood, the inspector may use a screwdriver or similar tool to tap and probe vulnerable areas. If the wood is hollow or easily penetrable, it may be a sign of termite damage.
     

  3. Moisture Assessment: Termites are attracted to moisture. Inspectors will check for any moisture issues in and around your home, as these conditions can create an inviting environment for termites.
     

  4. Exterior Inspection: The inspection extends to the exterior of your home, where the inspector looks for signs of termite activity in the soil, on wooden decks, and in other structures.
     

  5. Report: After the inspection is complete, you'll receive a detailed report outlining the findings. If termites are discovered, the report will also include recommendations for treatment and repairs.
