Question – “Is it possible for Visual Termite Damage to occur within 5 hours”
Answer – “YES it is” – This damage was found on a return visit to a property 5 hours after the first initial Termite inspection on the Gold Coast - ( maybe it was first missed! , when I first inspected this property and ensured that this door head was only partly damaged , on returning 5 hours later more damaged had occured, Opended my eyes thats for sure after 12 years in the industry.

Perfect Example here in this photo below of an Exposed Slab edge house, often used as a Physical Termite Barrier. The idea behind this Termite Management system is to keep the slab edge clear for regular inspections of the slab edge, if and when you inspect this area you will be looking for Termite Mud tubes/Leads traveling up the slab and usually into the Weep hole or any tiny little hole in the brick work. Great cheap option for Termite Management, although bare in mind there is nothing stopping the Termite in this situation. If you want protection in this type of construction – Call The Pest Company as we can apply a chemical Treated Zone or Termite barrier to prevent Termites crawling up the slab edge and into the house. Rental Property’s are always a concern if no chemical is used , as tenants maynot always check the edge and often mistake Termite leads for ants and do not mention anything to the Real Estate, which ends up costing the home owner thousands more in treatments and Termite Damage Repairs.
