Pre-Purchase Inspections – Termite Activity – Shelter Tubes

Termite Shelter Tubes In Roof Void

Here is a clear example of termite activity in a roof void seen during a recent Pre-Purchase Building and Timber Pest Inspection. In this example Termites have made shelter tubes as they track from an entry point into the dwelling to an area where conditions are ideal for feeding such as some damp timber under a broken tile or leaky gutter. 

Termites cannot exist very long exposed to the atmosphere as they dehydrate quickly, so they need to be in an enclosed environment. These tubes are made by the termites to create such an environment where one is not naturally available. 

In this case the activity is easy to see, but in many cases evidence of termites is hidden from few and difficult for the inspector to identify.

This home has no insulation in the roof space which greatly helps the detection of termite activity by an inspector but does not make the building very energy efficient.

ABIS building and pest inspections are conducted to the highest standard by building inspectors with a minimum of 10 years experience together with the highest professional qualifications in their field. ABIS has been in business over 27 years conducting both building and timber pest inspections.

Our highly recommended home inspectors are all long term trusted employees not here today gone tomorrow sub-contractors. ABIS Inspectors are supported by a unique computer aided inspection system and the latest inspection equipment such as high sensitivity thermal cameras costing thousands of dollars that others don’t often have.

When you book a pre-purchase inspection with ABIS, our friendly local (they know the area and are not in a interstate or overseas call centre) staff will make the whole process easy for you. Our Office team make all the arrangements with you, your agent, the vendor, the tenant (if there is one) and you will be sent an email to confirm the inspection time along with a pre-engagement letter which covers the scope of the inspection. Good communication and local knowledge are key to you getting the most out of your building and pest inspection. We are always happy to answer all your questions and you are most welcome to be on site when we do the inspection. Our technology, systems and processes also mean you get your high quality report shortly after your inspection is completed.

And all this for an incredible low price.
