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.
