A Pest Inspection in the “Industry” is formally a called a Timber Pest Inspection, or even a Pre-Purchase Timber Pest Inspection. It is not a Termite Inspection! We often get asked what is the difference between and Timber Pest Inspection and a Termite Inspection. Here is the answer.
A Timber Pest Inspection (Commonly called a Pest Inspection)
Is a super charged Termite Inspection. The Building inspector looks for a variety of Timber Pests which are going to be detrimental to the health of the timbers or structural integrity of the dwelling.
- Wood Borers
- Wood Rot
Another stand out is how the inspection pays attention to “Conducive Environments”. A conducive environment is an environment that is favourable, contributing or helping. With property, moisture plays a huge factor is creating environments favourable to Timber Pests. Poor soil drainage, damaged guttering and down pipes, stored timber, even your hot water service leaking onto the ground are all helping create an area around your house perfect for Termites (also known as White Ants) and other Timber Pests.
A Termite Inspection (Can be known as a White Ant Inspection)
A Termite report, as mentioned above isn’t as involved as a Timber Pest Inspection. It still is an extremely important and significant Inspection and the CSIRO reports that is Australia, Termites do more damage to houses than flood, fire or storms. That being said when you are about to purchase a house worth hundreds of thousands of dollars then you need the most thorough of inspections and that is a Timber Pest Inspection (which does includes Termites).
