When termites attack, there are ways to handle the infestation. Treatments range from non-invasive measures that eradicate early signs of termite problems to more extensive methods that can overcome a massive termite invasion.

Yet, neither of these approaches is preferable. Instead of treating an existing termite infestation, wouldn’t it be better to prevent it altogether? This is where regular termite inspections come in. If you own a domestic or commercial property in the Nowra area, you need to turn to the Shoalhaven termite experts before it is too late. With yearly (or more frequent) termite inspections, you can feel confident that your home or business is well-protected against an attack.

Is now the right time for a termite inspection? Here are 5 reasons to consider scheduling your inspection ASAP:

1. You’re considering purchasing a new property.

If you are buying a new home or commercial building, it is important to know as much as possible about the condition of the property. A professional pre-purchase inspection by pest control experts can help you identify if the building has any existing termite damage, ongoing infestations, or is a high-risk property. This can be a major benefit to helping you avoid a costly poor investment. Your termite pro can also advise on the best measures to take to pre-treat the house or business to keep future termite problems at bay. *We can also arrange for a comprehensive building inspection simultaneously, saving you time and providing added value.

2. It’s been a year or more since your last termite inspection.

Your last termite inspection showed that your property was in the clear. You may feel confident that these wood-eating pests are nowhere in sight. But a lot can change in a year, and in Australia termites present a very real threat to homes and businesses. Even without any visible signs of termite trouble, it’s a smart property owner who plans ahead. Why not stop a termite attack before it begins? If it’s been 12 months or more since you scheduled your last termite inspection, give us a call to get on the books.

3. You’re seeing signs of termite infestation in your home or business.

Yikes. Saggy ceilings, piles of wings, evidence of “mud tunnels.” These and other signs of termite invasion can be troubling. In such serious circumstances, don’t waste a moment before contacting your Shoalhaven termite team to take action. With a visual termite inspection–and using tools such as a moisture meter and borescope–our pest experts can assess the extent of termite damage and come up with a solid plan to stop these nuisances in their tracks. Treatment can begin immediately to take care of the problem, and the sooner, the better.

4. A neighbour has recently had a termite problem.

It is a common myth that when a neighbour’s home is treated for termites, they will change course and run on over to your property. While this may be unlikely to happen, the presence of termites in a neighbouring property is definitely a cause for concern. This may mean that conditions in the area are ripe for termites to take hold. Prevention is key in these situations, and booking a termite inspection can make a major difference in protecting your home from a similar fate.

5. You have a termite treatment warranty that requires an inspection.

Does your home or commercial property have a termite treatment system in place? Warranties by Termidor, Kordon, and other providers will cover damage in a protected site for several years. These warranties however, require regular inspections. The team at Termite Solutions has significant experience handling thorough warranty inspections, to help you keep your treatment warranty in good standing.
