Pest Only

Don’t take that chance and find yourself with an extra financial burden for repair costs and/or termite elimination. For the minimal cost of pre-purchase inspections it is well worth the step to ensure you are buying a home that is not going to compromise you and your family’s financial future.

Pest activity and damage is encountered in 1 in every 4 homes, according to State Forestry research. Shield carries out visual timber pest inspection reports under the strict guidelines of Australian Standards and reports on visual termite activity, termite damage, borers and timber decay.

Home and contents insurance will not cover the repair costs of any termite damage so, it is up to you the home owner for peace of mind to implement a maintenance program or carry out simple steps to reduce the risk of termite attack to your property.

What to expect from a Pest report?

  • We will report on visual termite activity, termite damage, borers & timber decay.
  • Inspection of all accessible areas and structures of the main building and the sites boundaries.
  • A visual inspection of internal areas, roof space, external areas, subfloor areas, outbuildings, fences & areas or structures of the main building & the sites boundaries.
  • Advice on termite management programs. The inspector will provide information on the most suitable termite management for your home.
  • Advice on reducing the risk of termite attack. There are so many ways to reduce conducive conditions for termite attack and the inspector will highlight the areas of your property that need attention.

Our recommendations

  • Regular 6-12 monthly visual timber pest inspections to the property for early detection of termite attack.
  • Remove all untreated timber from around the property such as untreated fences.
  • Termites are attracted to moisture so it is important to fix any plumbing leaks. Majority of hot water systems, water tanks and air conditioning units release water alongside or near external walls. Overflow pipes should be diverted into suitable drains or at least place a container underneath overflow.
