Although highly intelligent pests, there are certain characteristics to Australian Termites that gives us a good idea on how and where they are going to attack your property. The Termite (also known as White Ants) loves two things, timbers and moisture and unfortunately most houses have ample of both. The most common areas which receive the most White ant Damage are the bathroom, the laundry and kitchen. Why? Because they are wet areas and most likely have moisture issues.

Conducive Environments for White ants

Poor ventilation to subfloors, inadequate or damaged drainage around the property or air conditioners and hot water services overflow leaking to the ground create conducive environments, perfect for termites and other timber pests. With White ants (Termites) eating timber from the inside out, by the time you discover Them the Damage could be substantial.

Understanding White ants(Termites)  is just the start of why Certified Home Inspections can offer such thorough Inspections. Each Experienced Inspector carries an array of State-Of-The-Art equipment which includes The Termatrac T31 and Thermal Imaging Camera. The Thermal Camera is not an X-ray Vision device. But when used in conjunction with other tools it gives us a better insight into what is happening in those walls. A well established White ant  nest will radiate heat but what we are mostly looking for here is again, moisture. Termites themselves are made up of 90% liquid and there would be 100’s if not 1000’s of them in or around the nest.

This surprisingly doesn’t make the nest anymore easier to find as they are normally hidden in confined areas protected from predators. The bad news is that if we find a nest, depending on the specie, it may only be a sub-nest.

Do I get a Termite Inspection on a property I am buying?

The short answer is no. The reason for this is a Termite Check is too limited. We recommend a full Pre Purchase Building and Timber Pest Inspection or at the very least a Pre purchase Timber Pest Inspection. The Pre Purchase Inspection is more comprehensive as it covers Termites as well as Wood Borers and Timber Decay Fungus (ie Wood Rot). It also looks into conducive environments which is extremely important to homeowners. A Termite Inspection wont go into that much detail.

This is not a tree/plant root but a Termite Mud Lead.

Yes, is the answer. We need to check the extent of the Termite Activity and how the Termites have entered your house. We want to find out if there is a Termite Nest or a Termite Sub Nest in your house or around your yard. This is where industry experience and modern equipment gets results.

The Termite Inspection (also known as a White Ant Inspection) will bring up conducive conditions around your property. When fixed, it will lower the chance of white ants in the future. Also This lowers your Termite Risk Factor. More information about this service or conducive environments can be found on our Termite Barrier Page.
