General Pest Inspection
General pest inspections are requested for many reasons, including suspicion of pest activity, moving into a new home, and preparing a preventative strategy.
Your local technician will use up-to-date methods and technology to inspect your property. If you have noticed pests on your property, we will also ask you to point out the area, giving you extra peace of mind.
During an inspection, we check every room, the subfloor (where accessible), wall spaces, roof voids, outbuildings, fences, landscaping elements, and more. We can then identify what types of pests are present, any high-risk areas for infestation, and potential nesting sites.
A thorough inspection is as important as any following treatment; it helps your technician effectively treat pests while using the minimum amount of chemicals in a safer, more environmentally friendly way.
All homes should be inspected for termites. Choice and the Australian Standard AS3660 recommends that termite inspections are conducted at least once a year. While this may seem daunting, it’s important to remember that the time and money spent on a termite inspection is minuscule compared to the potential costs of a termite infestation and their damage.
Even homes with a current termite management system should be checked each year to ensure that the system functions as intended.
Having a termite inspection helps prevent structural damages that are not covered by insurance and put you and your property at risk. Your local technician will find any active termites that may be causing harm, as well as potential trouble areas that can be targeted through prevention.
At Jim’s, we are the leaders in termite detection. We use modern techniques and equipment, including:
- Moisture meters
- Thermal imaging
- Thermatrac T3i
- And more.
This thorough inspection will take about two hours, after which your technician will give you a report outlining the findings and recommendations for treatment options and preventative measures.
Pre-purchase Pest Inspections
For an inspection before housing purchase, your local technician will be able to advise you on a few things, including:
- Evidence of pests
- Previous treatments that may have been conducted
- High-risk areas
- The presence of timber pests
- Any current or future problems
It takes about three hours to conduct one of these general and timber pest inspections.
Hiring Jim’s for your pre-purchase inspection will ensure that you’re prepared for any eventuality in your new home. It may even stop you from buying a termite-infested property.
