Termite Inspection Toowoomba – How Often?

In Queensland, our humid weather conditions place residential and commercial buildings at high risk of attracting termites, and Toowoomba is no exception.

These tiny insects can cause substantial damage to timber structures, including walls, ceilings and floors over several years, resulting in expensive treatment and repairs.

With termite damage not being covered by most home and contents insurance policies, and the repair costs running into tens of thousands of dollars, it’s a far smaller price to pay to have yearly inspections conducted by a licensed professional.

While termite protection systems and barriers are mandatory for all properties, they only make it easier to detect termites and won’t prevent them from attacking your building, particularly if the barriers are compromised.

That’s why Australian Standard AS3660 recommends regular termite inspections be conducted at least once a year to keep you, your family and/or your business safe from termite damage.

Details Of Termite Inspections

Following is some information about what we do in a termite inspection, the equipment we use, and what we report back to you.

What happens during an inspection?

Depending on the size and layout of your property and floorplan, our licensed technician will usually assess the rooms inside the building first, paying special attention to timber structures. We’ll then assess subfloors, the external walls and the surrounding yard.

Termite detection equipment

Despite having the ability to cause substantial damage, termites are difficult to detect and carry out their destruction quietly. Fortunately, with the assistance of modern technology, Jim’s termite inspectors are well equipped to capture even the most subtle signs of termite activity in your home.

Termatrac T3i

As the only device that has the ability to detect termites through walls, ceilings and roof areas, it’s no surprise that the Termatrac T3i has gained a reputation as the world’s top termite detector.

With advanced infrared and thermal imaging technology, we’ll be able to identify signs of moisture and pinpoint the exact location of termite activity and provide you with a printed report, without needing to drill holes into walls to locate the termites.

Sounding equipment

To test the integrity of wood, we tap tools against timber structures and listen for a hollow sound that is consistent with termite activity.

Listening equipment

We have equipment that is sensitive to the very subtle sounds of termite movement,

Moisture meters

Since termites are drawn to moisture, our moisture meters can help identify areas that are holding a large volume of moisture.


To take pictures of active termites in timber without causing disturbance, we use a specialised photography device known as a borescope.

Thermal imaging

Available in some areas, we can also use thermal imaging devices to detect signs of termite movement.

Your inspection report

Once your on-site inspection is completed, our technician will provide you with a detailed and comprehensive written report which will include the following information:

  • Current termite activity
  • Evidence of previous termite damage
  • Termite attack risk factors around your property
  • Evidence of a current termite protection system
  • Advice on how to minimise the likelihood of termite attack
  • Your next recommended date for another inspection
  • Various options for a termite protection program if your current barriers are compromised
