Timber Pest Inspections

Timber Pest Inspections

A BPI Pest Inspection will determine the presence of wood destroying insects such as termites, borers and wood decaying fungi. We use Thermal Camera Technology to help detect these insects in addition to the Australian Standard 4349.3- 2010 and AS 3660 Inspection guidelines.

A BPI Timber Pest Report will not only detect and identify the pests but will provide recommendations so you can prevent future attack and ensure that your investment is secure.

Tools used within the Timber Pest Inspection

Pest Inspection Probe/Tapping Device

The probe is used to tap the architraves, skirtings, window reveals and frames, door jams and other timbers for termite damage.

Moisture Meter

Termites live in a high moisture environment so a moisture meter can pick up termite activity

Thermal Imaging Camera

A Thermal camera is used to scan the walls for “hot” or “cold” spots during the pest inspection. The camera measures the surface temperature of materials and displays that temperature on the screen as variations colour.

Termite nests, for instance, will usually be hotter than a surface and may show up as a “white” or “hot spot”, while wet areas, such as a roof or shower leak may show up as “black” or “cold” spots.

We use the camera as part of our inspections as an added service. The Thermal Scan is not part of the Australian Standard but it is a worthwhile extra for peace of mind.
