Termite Inspection

What is a termite inspection? A termite inspection is a thorough visual examination internally, externally, sub-floor, outbuildings, roof void and garden of a property to detect termite signs, element of risk, conducive conditions, extent of active termites and or past damage. Followed up by a comprehensive eight page written termite inspection report. This inspection is carried out by a certified, licensed and insured pest control technician.
