What is a Pest Inspection Report?

Termites can cause thousands of dollars of damage to a building in a relatively short time. A termite inspection is important, but will not be covered under most basic building inspections. Your client will need a separate inspection for termites if you have concerns about any damage their presence may have caused to the building.

A termite inspection involves a pest controller/ inspector engaging a visual inspection of accessible areas of the property to see if there is evidence of active termites and/or termite damage.

The inspector should also tell you:

  • If any termite management system has been used on the property and the maintenance requirements of the existing system.
  • If the property is in an area where there is risk of termite attack.
  • Advice to prevent re-infection and remedial solutions.
