Have Your Home or Business Inspected for Termites

 

temite inspection services

Termites or white ants are capable of attacking and damaging residential and commercial building structures. Since 1959, Murray Pest Control Adelaide has been leaders in termite control along with controlling, managing and treating termite problems. We service South Australia wide.

Please visit our pre purchase building inspection page for information on termite property inspections prior to purchase.

If you are selling, refinancing or are suspicious of the fact that you may have termites, it is vital that you take action to prevent, minimise, manage or eliminate any termite infestation problems you may have at your property.

 

Pre Purchase Inspections

 

If you are looking at purchasing a property, it is always recommended that a pre-inspection termite report is undertaken to give you the peace of mind that the property you are purchasing is free from any termites.

Our Adelaide termite inspection assessment report covers the following (but not limited to the following):

  • Evidence of termites;
  • Severity of damage caused by termites (if any);
  • Future susceptibility of the building to infestation by termites;
  • Remedial and protective measures, if required;
  • Further investigations, if required;
  • Document conditions conducive to termite attack;
  • Ventilation;
  • Excessive moisture build up and pooling water; and
  • Making sure that the inspection zone is clear.

Post-inspection, we recommend that future inspections are carried out at least 12 months, however, we do recommend a follow up every 3 months if your property is deemed to be very high risk or an inspection every 6 months if your property is deemed to be at a high risk of termite infestation. Our Adelaide termite exterminator team is always on hand to help.

Please feel free to contact us to find out how we can tailor a solution for your needs.

Termite FAQs

 

How do I recognise termite evidence?

Termites are by nature secretive, that’s why much of the damage they inflict can take place before you even notice them. Tell-tale signs of termite infestation include:

  • Brown mud “shelter tubes” sometime looks like coffee grounds
  • Sagging floors or doors
  • Brown lines in gyprock
  • Cracked paint or plaster
  • Power failures (termites are attached to the warmth of electrical fittings and can chew through insulation.
  • Flying ants “Alates” normally through Oct to Nov on a humid day

Is the chemical toxic to humans and other animals?

Although Premise is lethal to termites, its specific mode of action is much less hazardous for humans, pets and wildlife. Premise has the same active ingredients as most market-leading veterinary products applied to cats and dogs for the control of fleas. Our highly trained pest control professionals will follow all appropriate label requirements to keep your pets and you safe.

Why are the termites in my house but not next door?

It’s highly likely they are next door! There are many conducive conditions which attract termites, like the type of building construction, if there’s been previous termite infestation, moisture around the building, ventilation & plants/trees close to the building. All contribute to an increased risk of termite infestation

Can you tell how long there has been termite activity in the house?

No scientific analysis exists and even technicians with many years’ experience can’t determine how old termite evidence is. Therefore, all evidence must be considered potentially ‘active’. Abandoned tunnels can be inhabited by another colony at any time, meaning the property will again come under attack.

I have activity in my trees, if I just removed the trees will that resolve my problem?

No, removing the trees will not resolve the problem, removing the trees this will force the termites to seek out other food sources and potently increase the likelihood of termites finding and attacking your home.

Do I need to vacate the property?

It is advisable to vacate your property while the treatment is being undertaken due to the nature of the work being carried out e.g. drilling, cutting of traps, electrical cords etc. but it is not necessary.
