Often the first question asked is – why do I need a termite inspection in Sydney? Over the next 2 weeks Forensic Pest Control will take a deeper look at Termite Inspections to make things clearer for our readers.


The most destructive wood pests are subterranean termites – they are a threat to both new and existing homes. Unfortunately 1 in every 3 homes in Australia will be affected by termites at some stage and the scary thing is the presence of termites can go undetected until the damage is done. In some cases you find that damage caused by termites isn’t actually covered in your home insurance policy. New homes have to be protected from subterranean termites however even a properly installed termite barrier system still does NOT guarantee the prevention of a termite invasion and it is for this reason Forensic Pest Control recommend regular termite inspections at least once a year – or more frequently if your home is in a higher termite risk area.
