The Importance of an Annual Termite Inspection

Nasutes Roof

This photo illustrates just how important it is to have an annual TERMITE INSPECTION carried out on your home. The owners of this home had no idea this Nasutitermes Walkeri species of TERMITES had established a colony in their roof and was happily feeding on structural timbers.

Unfortunately, home and contents insurance does not cover TERMITE damage and/or eradication, so early detection of TERMITE activity is vital to allow treatments to carried out ASAP, thus minimising damage to the home. The Australian Standards recommend that homeowners get their houses inspected at least once a year.

TERMITES are less vigorous in winter but winter is still a great time to have your home inspected. It allows the inspector to determine if TERMITES have managed to establish themselves in your home or surrounds over the previous summer.

Winter is also the time that RATS & MICE move from outside in the cold, to inside your home looking for food, shelter and warmth.

PestGuard treated our house for ants and unlike any other company we'd used, the ant problem was solved within days.

Trent conducted our annual Termite Inspection this year. He was prompt and extremely thorough with his investigations. I would highly recommend his services.

Trent and Shane were very careful to ensure the quality of the spray at our unit complex. When I queried the rain we unfortunately had not long after the spray, they came back the same day and resprayed the affected areas to ensure the quality of work.
