How to inspect your home for termites
We recommend you use our termite inspection services as it can be difficult for untrained eyes to spot the presence of termites, especially subterranean termites. If you are going to do this yourself here’s what to look for…
- Mud around skirting and door frames.
- Paint peeling off the Gyprock.
- Tap wall with hand and hear mud drop.
- Hollow sounding wood.
- Damaged paint or holes in timber.
To properly inspect your property…
- You’ll need to get into crawl spaces and probe with a pick or screwdriver
- Pay special attention to wood close to the ground
- Check all sills, subfloors, window frames, decks and posts
- See if there’s any wood close to your property such as old tree stumps
- Check any gaps in brickwork close to the ground
If you find termites or see signs of termite activity DON’T PANIC. Termites eat quite slowly. The worse thing you can do is spray the termites with fly spray. Simply call us on 02 6887 2825 or call Nathan directly on 0438 841 798 and we’ll carry out a full inspection and be able to advise you on the best solution for your property.
Termite Inspections Dubbo
The investment you made in your home is for life. Having spent a considerable amount of money and committed to repayments for many years, the comfort standards you enjoy and quality of life must be optimal. Pests can change things in homes of all sizes.
Regardless of whether you have a mansion or live in a more modest residential property, their presence spells trouble and expense. That’s why it is important to seek out professional termite inspection services in Dubbo, even when everything appears to be just fine. Termite Prevention is always better than the cure and a lot less costly, too.

How Regular Inspections Add Value to Your Property
Here at Dentec Pest Management, we understand that every household has a budget that they try to stick to every year. In the absence of a pest problem it is easy to justify not spending any money on preventative treatments and inspections, but rest assured, this is not money that is squandered, but rather, a smart investment that you will benefit from.
A routine termite inspection enables you to get ahead of the problem when it first emerges. In Australia, our hot and humid climate makes for ideal conditions for termites. CSIRO reported that there are somewhere in the region of 32% of houses that have a termite presence, and in some of these the problem has not been detected.
Finding a problem that is building could save you thousands of dollars. Termites are relentless in their attack on timber, which could compromise the structure of your home. Most insurance policies do not cover termite damage, so if you suddenly realise that you are facing costly repairs, you may have to pay for it out of your own pocket.
DIY products are generally ineffective. No matter what brand you choose, they are all based on the same formula and push back the problem in the short-term, rather than deliver any sort of long-term results. Therefore, they are a waste of your money, and the time required to use them. Professional termite inspections make a real difference and enable you to tap into safe, effective solutions that consistently deliver results.

Learn How to Deal with Your Pest and Termite Problem
Have you noticed that something is “off” in your home lately, or do you have a sneaking suspicion that it may be harbouring unwanted guests? If so, you aren’t alone. Many homeowners throughout Dubbo and the surrounding areas experience this creeping dread on a regular basis. Unfortunately, the “creeping” part of that dread is all too real when you find yourself dealing with termites. A termite infestation can spell significant problems for you and the other occupants of your home, which is why you should act the moment you suspect termites may be present.
What are the Uses of a Pest and Termite Inspection?
What does it mean to take action when you suspect termites? The first thing you should do is verify that termites are the problem. If you have not seen the termites firsthand, it is possible that you may be dealing with pests of another kind. There is one easy way to determine whether you are struggling with termites or some other kind of pest: arrange for a pest and termite inspection at your property. Finding professionals to conduct your termite and pest inspection can provide you with concrete information that you can use to take decisive next steps in the process of cleansing your home.
How can you hire effective pest control professionals for your termite inspection? There are several ways to tell quality pest control professionals apart from those who may not produce ideal results. Looking for these features can help you choose pest control and termite inspection professionals who will be able to give you the help you need:
- Choose pest control professionals who have spent years (or even decades) performing their duties and learning how to become as efficient as they possibly can be. Experienced professionals will be able to work faster and more thoroughly than others, ridding your home of termites in a shorter time and lowering the likelihood that they will return.
- Work with pest control services that offer detailed and meaningful customer service. Your pest controllers should be willing to speak with you about the problems you are experiencing and provide you with advice on what to do before and after their visit.
- Choose a service that demonstrates explicit knowledge of termite baiting. Baiting termites is an excellent way to draw them out and deal with them once and for all.
