Termite Inspection


No matter what you call it, a termite inspection or white ant treatment, checking your property regularly for these pests is crucial. While annual inspections do not stop an infestation, they can help with the early detection of termite activity. Once termites are detected, remedial white ant treatment can begin so damage to your property will be minimised or prevented.

Cottesloe Pest Control can provide solutions to minimise the risk of damage to your home by these pests. We can provide a treatment or termite inspection in Perth properties, visually checking infestation prone areas to ensure your home is free from invading pests. As a family owned and operated business that has been offering solutions since 1958, we are a name you can trust for prompt and effective building inspections that are available at a competitive price.

How often should a property be checked?

Our team encourages a yearly inspection to determine whether prompt action is required. This will allow early detection of termites and highlight potential problem areas and conditions conducive to infestation in and around your home. Our licensed technicians will provide you with a full report in accordance with Australian standards, informing you of any conditions favourable to termites, maintenance tips and providing some of the dos and don’ts to help reduce the risk of future termite attacks. If white ant treatment is required, we will discuss the options available moving forward.

What are some signs I may have a problem?

In between your annual inspection, or after a treatment, Perth residents can still remain vigilant and look out for some tell-tale signs there may be a possible infestation. Before going through your home, familiarise yourself with the type of damage they can cause, what termite damaged wood looks like, as well as their tunnels and mud leads. Once you know what exactly you are looking for, from wood damage, wings and nests to mud leads, go through your property and see if you notice anything out of the ordinary.

Remember, it’s not just important to check the inside of your home as termites, first have to find a way in from the outside. Take a look at your backyard and see if there are any nests on the trees nearby. This may also be the opportune time to identify any areas that are going to encourage an infestation. Remove tree stumps when required and minimize temptation for these pests to appear in the first place. If you are unsure, contact us for an earlier termite inspection for your Perth home.

A white ant treatment (if required) can protect your family home and provide great peace of mind to property owners. With one call to Cottesloe, you can ensure your property is protected.
