WORRIED ABOUT TERMITES?
They may be tiny but they’re a big problem. And what they lack in size they make up for in numbers. Termite inspections are the best way to ensure your property is free of termites.
Termites can completely destroy the framework and roofing timbers your home within three months. In many cases, property owners, just like you, aren’t even aware they’ve got a termite problem until it’s too late. Don’t let this happen to you. Call Gold Coast Pest Inspector to arrange an inspection today.

And that’s because he hunts them, he’s relentless, he’s thorough. Richard will crawl through roof-spaces, under floors, peer in nooks and crannies…go anywhere to be the best termite inspector on the Gold Coast.
If You're Buying A Property, You Need Think Carefully About Who Does Your Inspections
We urge you to get independent inspections on any property you’re considering purchasing. A weeks doesn’t go by when we don’t find signs of termites on a property that was already inspected. We quite often find damage that results in bills totally many $10,000s (sometimes only weeks or months after the owners have bought the property).
Before you commit to an inspection, ask yourself these questions…

Check Out Some Of Richard's Videos
Richard does a semi-regular recap of what he found during the week. Below are two videos showing some of the things he found. What’s interesting about many of the videos he posts is how often they contain termites that other inspectors have missed. What is also quite shocking is how often he finds termites. For more videos, check out his YouTube channel, Instagram or Facebook.
Regular Pest Inspections Are Your Best Defense Against Termites
Below are some images from recent termite inspections. Richard constantly finds evidence of termites. Very frequently (like…every week), these properties were recently inspected and passed by other inspectors. We collect these images so that you can see what other Gold Coast homes have suffered from termites.
We’re always happy to talk to our clients about how they can avoid damage like this. We’ll show you the things you have overlooked, like timber in the garden or dampness against the home. We’ll recommend appropriate termite treatment. But it all starts with a termite inspection.
GOLD COAST HIGH TERMITE RISK
Termites love the warm climate and lush soil of the Gold Coast. Brick homes are just as susceptible because termites live in the ground and enter homes through small cracks or expansion joints looking for that irresistible combination of timber and moisture. They will often damage other materials they can’t digest (eg plastic, rubber, metal or mortar) in their search for food – damage we can detect during our Gold Coast termite inspections.
WHAT AREAS DO OUR INSPECTIONS COVER?

FIRST DETECT THE PEST, THEN PROTECT
Thermal imaging and moisuture meteres are tools we use to detect termites in our termite inspections – but they’re not the holy grail. Experience and knowledge are our most powerful weapons. And if we do find termites, we can discuss effective and safe termite treatment options with you. We recommend Trelona ATBS (Advanced Termite Baiting System) for total protection.
THE LATEST TERMITE INSPECTION TECHNOLOGY
Thermal imaging should be a standard part of the arsenal of any termite inspection. Termite areas show a heat signature that is detectable with a good thermal imaging device. Termites create heat by mudding, which brings in moisture. They also create carbon dioxide as they digest, which creates heat. The heat signature of the termite is therefore a very important way that termites give themselves away. A properly trained and experienced operator using thermal imagine can spot termites inside wall cavities.
Thermal imaging is not the only tool Richard will use when he inspects your home for termites. Richard also uses moisture meters—an extremely valuable piece of technological equipment that helps detect termite infestation. Moisture Meters detect leaks and dampness in walls, and floors and ceilings, helping to locate problems before they turn into something bigger. Like any living being, termites need water. They need it to live and to help break down the timber in your home, making it soft and edible. Termite areas, therefore, attract moisture and our advanced moisture meters help us detect those termites.

Richard recently attended the home of a young couple in Burleigh. They had only recently purchased it when a handyman found termites. Before they knew it, this young couple had a $60,000 repair bill on their hands.
The never expected to be in this position. They’d had an inspection done before buying the home.
The inspector had been recommended to them by the agent who sold them the home.
While it might mean nothing, with this much at stake, we’d recommend seeking independent advice from someone who is in no way connected with the sale of the property.
