When you need peace of mind that the house you are planning to purchase doesn’t come with unpaid tenants!
It is important that you have all the information when you are making a big purchase such as a house. You need to know all the facts and risks. Conquer Termites offers a full and comprehensive Timber Pest Inspection complying with the latest Australian Standard – 4349.3.2010. This “pre-purchase” inspection includes reporting on four types of destructive insects and conditions that could affect the timber of the house you are hoping to buy.
1. Subterranean Termites
A group of wood-destroying insects, (Order: Isoptera) commonly described as ‘Subterranean’. The biggest concern for structures in South East Queensland.
2. Dampwood Termites
A group of wood-destroying insects, (Order: Isoptera) commonly described as ‘Dampwood’.
3. Wood Decay Fungi
Fungal organisms that cause the deterioration or decay of timber in service. This is what you would call wet rot or timber rot.
4. Wood Borers – Beetles that attack timber in service
A group of wood-destroying insects (Order: Coleoptera) that are known to cause timber damage.
Scope & Limitations
We also believe that you should know the limitations and scope of the inspection. Please check the Timber Pest Inspection approval form – Rapid Solution page for an outline and a downloadable link for more information.
The identification of these threats requires a high degree of expertise, thoroughness and time to inspect. A Timber Pest Inspection could be your best decision in the process of purchasing a house. Remember, we are the experts and we offer realistic treatment options and costing if an issue is discovered.

Technologies we use
Conquer Termites embraces technology that enables the most thorough inspection of your home. That is why we have made the investment to equip all of our Inspectors with a Flir e50 Thermal Imaging camera. The Flir e50 cameras have the ability to detect thermal variance to <0.05 degrees Celsius using a 320×240 pixel resolution allowing the inspector to pick up the slightest variance in surface temperature which could suggest an area of termite activity.
When you home is inspected by one of our professional and fully licensed inspectors you can be reassured that they’ll turn up with a thermal camera that can really reveal any hidden termites behind your walls.
Also, with every inspection, a Tramex Moisture Meter is used. This enables our Inspectors to detect any high moisture content in the interior timbers. High moisture readings can indicate termite activity as they leave a moist trail and dampen their feeding front. Whenever we come across a situation in your home that has high moisture readings, we’ll use our Termatrac monitoring devices that sends microwave signals into the timber to detect termite movement. If we think you might have active termites but there is no visual evidence, then we can suggest a more invasive inspection using our Borescope Lens to look inside voids, cavities and walls.
One thing we guarantee is that you will experience the most thorough inspection and receive treatment options that are most suited for your home and the termite threat it might be facing. Remember, we also promise you’ll receive your detailed 12-page report and treatment proposal the same day by email.
