Termites are a common pest in many homes across Australia, especially in larger cities such as Geelong. If a termite infestation is left without proper treatment, it can cause significant and expensive structural damage to your home. A termite inspection is the first step in a comprehensive treatment plan for:
- early detection of a termite or timber pest problem
- identification of problem or susceptible areas in your home for pro-active termite prevention
