This template makes writing a pest and termite inspection report easier. Find evidence of termite and beetle damage and log its location. Come up with a fumigation or termination plan, and determine if a more extensive inspection is required to treat the infestation. The checklist below guides you through the following points:
Terms And Conditions
A report finding NO evidence of timber pest infestation does not imply there is no future risk, and it does not protect the structure from future infestation.
The client must understand that subterranean termites are living creatures and the building's infestation status may change at any time. In some instances, an infestation can occur within 24 hours after the time of inspection, and it is critical you consider pest management options provided carefully.
Inspections are visual inspection only and further recommendations may be provided for invasive inspections to allow for a more detailed report
You, as the customer must understand that the inspection is subject to the scope, possible limitations, exclusions, definitions, terms & conditions as defined within this document.
