All inspections are carried out by a qualified Specialist using the most advanced equipment available in the market.
We will provide you with the most in depth Pre purchase and Annual Termite inspections are designed to give you (the buyer) a clear and unbiased report on the condition of the home you own or are purchasing. Our inspections are presented in a very descriptive, yet easy to understand manner, along with digital pictures to provide you peace of mind about your major investment and are completed to Australian Standard AS 4349.3-2010 and AS 3660.2-2000
Australian Pest Specialists Termite Inspections include a non-intrusive visual examination of the interior and exterior of the property for termite evidence (such as termite damage, exit holes, shelter tubes, frass, and staining) as well as other types of wood destroying insects, like powder post beetles and carpenter ants. This inspection includes basements, crawlspaces, the exterior foundation and other structures located on the property grounds. Once the inspection is completed, your Australian Pest Specialists Inspector will issue you a Report, explaining all of the findings at the time of the inspection. Recommendations will also be presented to help reduce the chances of future Termite and Timber pest infestations.
Identifying termites early is crucial in protecting your home from future damages. Our Inspectors will inspect all wooden structures like flooring, walls, furniture, and wooden supports in your foundation and crawlspace. Termites will create tunnels and chew through the inside of the wood in your home, causing these structures to become weakened and hollow. By recognizing these early signs of termites, you can save the affected structure or minimize the cost of renovation or treatment.
Australian Pest Specialists also complete Pre-Purchase Termite Inspections for piece of mind when buying a property.
At Australian Pest Specialists, we use the latest equipment tools to help detect any issues within the property that is being inspected.

Termite Moisture and Radar Meter
Termatrac Moisture Meter
The 3-in-1 functionality makes the Termatrac T3i the best available tool for Pest Management and Building Inspection Professionals. Termite risk areas are easily identified using the Remote Thermal Sensor with Laser Guide and/or the built in Moisture Sensor. Termatrac’s patented Termite Detection Radar is then used to accurately detect, confirm and track the presence of termites, plus precisely locate nests, mud-leads, and entry points to ensure a cost-efficient and effective treatment can be applied to only the areas required. It is the first device in the world that can precisely detect, locate and confirm the presence of termites without the need for physical penetration of walls, floors or ceilings, and will not disrupt and displace termite activity. This has not only eliminated the need for post-inspection repairs and inconvenience
The Flir range of Thermal Imaging Cameras have been helping pest companies locate termite ‘hot spots’ for many years now. Thermal imaging cameras for Termite Control and building applications are powerful and non-invasive tools for monitoring and diagnosing the condition of buildings when it comes to Termite Control. With a thermal imaging camera, you can identify problems early, allowing them to be documented and corrected before becoming more serious and more costly to repair On a thermal image potential Termite problems seem to jump right out at you. A thermal imaging camera is the one tool that really lets you SEE it all. A thermal image that includes accurate temperature data provides Pest and Termite Inspectors with important information about the insulation conditions, moisture ingress, mould development, and the presence of Pest and Termite infestations. Thermal imaging cameras are such a valuable and versatile tool that it is not possible to list all the applications. New and innovative ways of using the technology are being developed every day. When used to support a Termite inspection, they become a valuable tool in identifying critical areas within the property being inspected.
Borescope To inspect hard to get to places for termites
Borescopes are another tool that can be used to assist in Visual Only Inspection work where the area to be Inspected is inaccessible by other means. Borescopes are mostly used in non-destructive or non-invasive testing techniques for recognizing defects or imperfections that would otherwise be unknown due to reasonable Access issues.
Termite and building inspections include the checking of timbers using a timber inspection tool that produces a change in tone when damage or anomalies are present. This tool is typically known as a Donger but is also referred to as a Sounder, Tapper, Knocker or Probe. The termite tapping stick is used as a preliminary tool to check the timber density around your home. Termites typically eat from inside out and by tapping the timber we can determine if there is evidence of underlying damage. We then follow through with further tests to detect termite activity.
