Termite & Pest Inspections in Toowoomba & Lockyer Valley

Pests always deserve the highest priority

In South-East Queensland, pest inspections should not be an afterthought. It’s not only about the possibility of white ants. It’s borer and wood rot too. If you’ve never seen a termite infestation before, the home can look perfectly fine on the surface. While all the action is going on deep in the timber, often at a rate of knots. Once white ants are in the home, the damage can be devastating and quick, with the affected building element often requiring replacement. With an enemy so cunning, and the stakes so high, is it worth leaving the building and pest inspection to a single inspector? We don’t, that’s why we offer a coordinated building and pest, with two fully licensed and trained inspectors on the premises together.  

We work alongside select and trusted local pest and termite inspection experts, to deliver you a full picture of the property. A separate pest inspector comes with all their knowledge of the area, of local infestations (both current and past) and expertise in practical methods of prevention. Importantly, they can also act quickly to treat any infestations they find. Often the same day if required. The pest inspector’s focus is solely on pest detection, which allows Matt to focus solely on the building inspection. This means for you, that two trained industry professionals are both working together with eyes to see any defects.
