Termite Inspection Caboolture & Surrounds
A Termite Inspection is done by a thorough inspection of the house and surrounding areas.
The Inspector will look for areas that may be a harbourage for Termites, such as trees, tree stumps, logs, scrap timbers or retaining walls and fences.
He is also looking for environmental conditions which may include, leaking pipes, air conditioner units or hot water systems.
Other areas Termites live:
- Vegetation next to the house and timbers in contact with the soil.
- Moisture readings are taken throughout all areas of the house.
Upon entering your house Termites, will need to bring in mud and moisture. The mud is used to construct tunnels or galleries to protect them from predators such as Ants. Moisture is needed to keep them hydrated above ground as they have a very soft exoskeleton.
If a high moisture reading is detected it may be evidence of a Termite Infestation or a plumbing problem that can lead to a Termite problem.
The main areas of concern are walls surrounding your shower recess. The moisture may come from a leaking pipe, unsealed shower taps, inferior wall sheeting or grouting.
Such areas as these will attract Termites into your home.
An experienced Termite Inspector will be able to tell the difference between Termite moisture and a plumbing problem and explain the appropriate course of action.
