thermal imaging used in termite inspections

Thermal Imaging Standard With Pest Inspections

Thermal imaging is perhaps the most valuable tool available to the pest inspector. Second only to the inspectors’ knowledge and experience. Pests like termites leave a heat signature that can be detected with these devices. If you know where to look, and how to look, you can located termites inside wall cavities and other places not visible or accessible. We used thermal meters as a standard part of our inspections.

Moisture Meters Standard With Pest Inspections

Termites create moist areas. They need moisture to survive. like any other organism. They use moisture to soften timbers and make their distinctive mudding, pulpy areas you see around termite nests. With moisture meters we can uncover potential nests and investigate them. We use moisture meters as standard equipment in our pest inspections.

We Find What Other Inspectors Missed

We find evidence of termite activity in almost every home we inspect here on the Gold Coast. Sometimes it is benign, some residual evidence of termite presence now long gone. And sometimes we uncover entire termite nests inside the home. What makes this disturbing is when the home was recently inspected by someone else. Unfortunately, this happens time and time again.Below are some images of termite damages we found that other inspectors missed. For more information read our article, What Did Your Termite Inspector Miss?


While termites are the big concern for most home buyers, many other pests can cause unwanted damage to a property. Our Gold Coast pre purchase pest inspection will also assess the site for borers, wood decay, drainage issues and any other conditions that might attract pests. We also advise if any termite management systems are in place. All work is performed by highly trained, experienced, licensed professionals; with fast, safe and effective treatments available if we do find a problem.


We combine our comprehensive pest inspection report with a verbal report. It’s important to know what pests are in the property. It’s probably more important to know what risk they pose. We’ll explain in plain language what risks are present and how to mitigate those risks. In some cases, we’ll advise on the likely costs involved with what was found on the property.

What Others Have Said About Our Pest Inspections

We had a termite infestation at our home in Palm Beach which Richard found on our pre purchase inspection. He gave us great confidence in purchasing our home knowing that the issue was not in the home but confined in decking at the rear. Richard recommendations on treatment were spot on and we are well on the way to total eradication without any further issues. Richard still calls in on a monthly basis just to check if all is ok. He is very knowledgeable on up to date products and is super obliging and easy to chat to.

Richard from Gold Coast Pest Inspectors was recommended to us after termites were found in a home close to ours. Richard was prompt, friendly, polite, professional, very helpful and extremely thorough. He took his time to explain various issues to my wife and I, he showed us potential areas of concern and helped educate us on termite risks etc I recommended him to my daughter who also used his services recently and is just as happy.

Richard was fantastic to work with. We live interstate and required an inspector for a property on the Gold Coast. Richard was extremely helpful, professional and was willing to work with the realtor and the owner to get the inspection done in a timely manner to assist us. His report was extremely well done. He has our highest recommendations.
Richard from Gold Coast Pest Inspector would have to be hands down the most thorough inspector I have worked within the industry. His skills, knowledge and attention to detail is well above industry standards and is reflected continually by clients feedback.


Many companies offer combined building and pest inspections. We don’t recommend this. Pest inspectors – just like building inspectors – are experts in our field. We specialise in Gold Coast pre-purchase pest inspection services and focus entirely on providing an accurate report of any pest activity and damage at the property. We combine our services with Mark from Gold Coast Building Inspections who has 30 years experience as a builder and building inspector.

With our  Gold Coast pre-purchase pest inspections, you can rest assured that your new home or investment property is free of invasive pests at the time of purchase – or you can adjust your offer to suit. We provide independent advice that will either save you stress and worry or a lot of money. You win either way.
