Question and Answers:

Q. What is meant by conducive items?

A. Items found by industry research which are deemed to attract termites, such as: warm and moist areas like enclosed patios and poorly vented sub floors as this is the preferred habitable environment for termites. Or as termites are subterranean and eat timber, any timber in contact with the ground is considered as a direct food source for termites.

Q. Will I receive a quote to install termite protection the property?

A. There area several options available to people to help protect a home against termites. Generally, the best option is to install and maintain a termite barrier.

Other options should be explored if this arises.

Q. How often should I inspect my house for timber pest?

A. The Australian Standard AS 4349.3 for timber pest inspections recommends every home be inspected once every 12 months to be able to evaluate if there are termites in the property and to determine what is required to best protect the property. The frequency of inspections then becomes more frequent as the risk level of the property, based on the findings during the inspection, goes up. In extreme cases, unprotected homes are to be inspected every 3 months.
