Timber Pest Inspections

Whether you are purchasing a new property or seeking peace of mind for your existing home, it’s always a good idea to have your property inspected for timber pests by a qualified professional.

And there’s a lot more to your annual timber pest inspection than just checking for termites:

  • Borers (including the infamous European House Borer (EHB) now active in Western Australia) pose a significant threat to your home. Borers are beetles that lay their eggs in dry seasoned timbers. The larvae then hatch and begin feeding on the timber, eventually emerging as adult beetles. Several species are known to infest homes and furniture, including the Anobium borer, Lyctus borer and the aforementioned EHB.
  • Fungal decay/wood rot can weaken exposed timbers over time. Rot fungi can appear in the form of brown rot, white rot or soft rot.
  • Chemical delignification is a reaction that leaves your roof timbers looking ‘frayed’. Also known as Hairy Timber, it occurs when the lignin (which ‘glues’ together the timber fibres) is damaged by airborne chemicals.

You may not even realise that these pests are in your home until it is too late.

This is why you need Envirotechnics’ Professional Pest Management. Our timber pest inspections comply with all relevant Australian Standards and our technicians are fully qualified and very thorough.
