Our Termite Inspection Process
At Pest2kill, we believe in transparency and ensuring you’re informed every step of the way. Our expert pest control technicians are always ready to answer your queries and make you a part of the process.
Before we begin, our technicians will walk you through the areas we’ll inspect and those we won’t, for various reasons. If any area remains inaccessible, we will note it in your inspection report, along with an explanation for your reference.
With your consent, we may access private areas of your home or remove necessary panels, ensuring a comprehensive inspection of termite and pest problems.
Our checklist-driven process leaves no room for oversight, as we meticulously examine:
Interior – We delve into your kitchen and bathroom cupboards, skirting boards, wooden door jams, carpet tracking strips, floorboards, ceilings, cornices, and even the gyprock walls.
Roof Void – Our systematic inspection extends to the timbers in your roof construction, covering top plates, ceiling joists, hanging beams, strutting beams, struts, under-purlins, and collar ties. A timely timber pest inspection can help identify vulnerabilities and minimize the risk of a costly and damaging termite attack on your property.
Subfloors – If access traps are present, we may need to cut them to gain termite entry, always with your permission. We inspect brick, concrete, or limestone piers with ant caps, ensuring we check for possible leads that could bridge capping into floor bearers and joists.
Exterior – We meticulously inspect your window frames, fascia boards, and any wooden elements that are part of or attached to your home. The scrutiny extends to your gardens and property, including trees, landscaping timbers, old stumps, and storage areas to find the termite colony.
Types of Termites in Australia
Termite inspections are often referred to as “white ants” inspections. With the continent’s varying climates and landscapes, there are several types of termites that pose potential threats to Australian homes and structures. Some of the most prominent types include:
- Subterranean Termites: These are the most common and destructive termites in Australia. They live underground and are adept at constructing mud tubes to access above-ground wood, making early detection crucial.
- Drywood Termites: Unlike subterranean termites, drywood termites infest dry wood and don’t require contact with the soil. They often enter homes via infested furniture, wooden structures, or even through direct flight.
- Dampwood Termites: These termites prefer damp or decaying wood and are often found in wet, forested areas. They are less likely to infest homes but can still be a concern in certain situations.
- Nasutitermes Termites: This type includes various species and is characterized by their distinctive soldier termites with long, pointed heads. They often nest in trees and can occasionally damage homes.
- Coptotermes Termites: This is another common group of subterranean termites in Australia that is known for their large colonies and aggressive feeding habits.
Reasons Behind Termite Attacks
Termites are drawn to properties for several reasons:
Wood as Food Sources
Cracks and Crevices
Garden Debris and Wood Piles
Lack of Prevention Measures
Our Cutting-Edge Termite Inspection Tools
To provide you with the most accurate and professional termite inspection, we employ a range of advanced tools and technology:
Termi-Track is an Australian invention that uses radar-like technology to detect termites through various building materials without causing any interference. It emits signals that penetrate materials being areas inspected and if termite activity interrupts these signals, it promptly alerts us.
2. Thermal Gun
A thermal gun detects temperature variations in timbers or retaining walls and floors, helping identify the evidence of active termites. It digitizes its findings, enabling us to pictorially represent temperature differentials.
3. Moisture Meter
Designed to identify excessive moisture content in walls and timbers, a key indicator of termite activity.
4. Listening Device
This tool listens for sounds inside walls, especially when soldier termites rub their mandibles together. It helps detect termite activity without invasive procedures.

Here is what People have to say about our level of service
Phil and the team are absolutely amazing! Johnny came to our house and was professional and on time. Will use the team year on year and happy to refer them to anybody looking!
All good things to say about Pest2Kill. All their staff are an absolute pleasure to deal with, they do thorough work and they take the time to answer questions and explain things. At our property, Pest2Kill have done thorough termite inspections, installed a termite monitoring system (which I've gladly renewed for a second year) and general pest spray. I've been happy with the service and work every time. Highly recommend.
We have been using Pest2Kill services on an annual basis, and all the technicians are super friendly and professional (this year we had Brian), and the treatment work really well. Highly recommended!
I had great experience starting from Waseem who I booked the service with. He was very helpful & patient answering all my questions. He was my main reason for choosing this company to do the work. James who looked after the Termite inspection. He was very thorough, efficient and polite. He worked with Kyle (also very polite) who came to spray my house. Both of them did an excellent job. I am happy with the work & will definitely use them again.
Taylor was very good. Very happy with his performance
Julián was prompt in his response- the first one to call me and was quick to fix a time for the treatment. Taylor who came to my place was súper profesional. He was knowledgeable, gave sound advice and was just really honest. No hard sell around products or second round of treatment. You are vulnerable at this time and it is so easy to sell to you but Taylor kept it simple and straightforward. Thank you Julian and Taylor
