Termites in Melbourne are more prevalent than most people realise. They live in dark, moist, areas and eat the timber in your house, inside and out up to the paint work. They work together as a colony 24 hours, day and night.

Our licensed and experienced inspectors use advanced technology and equipment, including thermal imaging cameras, to identify potential pest infestations and hidden defects in the property’s timber structures. We’ll thoroughly examine all accessible areas of the property, including the interior and exterior, roof space, subfloor, and any other relevant areas to ensure your property is safe and free from pests.
