According to Australian standards, it is highly recommended that buildings anywhere south of the Tropic of Capricorn have a qualified pest control technician inspect the property for termites a minimum of once a year. This is true for both residential homes and commercial properties.

The Australian government authority CSIRO has estimated that at least 1 in every 5 homes will suffer from termite problems during its lifetime. Even new and metal framed homes are not immune to the risk of termites and should also be inspected periodically.

The pros of regular termite inspections far outweigh any perceived cons, as preventing termite intrusion and damage is much simpler if caught early. Dealing with a situation that has been left too long and which has allowed termites to progress unchallenged is much more complicated and potentially expensive to fix.

If you have even the slightest suspicion that you may have termites, then there’s only one course of action: call Affordable Pest Control without delay and let us find out for you.
