Keep Your Home Safe and Clean with Termite and White Ants Pest Inspection
Termite and white ants pest inspections should be regularly conducted at your home, especially if you want to preserve the safety and stability of your property. Although not explicitly dangerous to humans, termites and white ants can eat away at your home’s foundation if left unchecked.
Turn to Forensic Pest Control for safe, reliable termite and white ants pest inspection! Our highly trained technicians are well-equipped to conduct thorough inspections for buildings and residential properties in Sydney — no stone goes unturned with us.
When you sign up for a termite and white ants pest inspection with Forensic Pest Control, you can rest assured that your home will be thoroughly inspected both internally and externally for these wood-destroying pests. We will also ensure that no unwanted pests make themselves known with our expert team at your side during our inspection service.
How to Tell if You Need a Termite and White Ants Pest Inspection
Because termites and white ants are relatively tiny creatures, their presence can be very difficult to notice. Here are some common signs to watch out for:
- Hollow Sounds When You Knock on Wood — White ants strategically eat away at wood structures fast, so it’s essential to check dense wood surfaces to see if you can hear some hollowness.
- Clicking Noises — Termites and white ants tend to emit clicking sounds when they eat through the wood — they also emit louder clicking when they feel threatened. Call our team if you hear suspicious noises such as these.
- Mudding — Mudding or mud tubing is something termites and white ants do to protect themselves from the elements. This involves creating a mud-like substance to cover themselves from prying eyes. If you notice suspicious mud structures near wooden parts of your home, contact our team immediately.
- Structures That Sag or Are Uneven — Visible signs such as sagging in walls, floors, doors and ceilings can indicate that white ants have caused significant damage to the structural integrity of a home. If beams, structural posts, wooden bearings and internal framing are compromised by being eaten by termites, you will notice evidence within rooms.
6 Preventive Measures That Can Help You Avoid Pests at Home
Conducting regular home pest inspections is a proactive way to identify and address potential pest issues before they become major problems. Here at Forensic Pest Control, we recommend having a property inspection and general home pest control treatment carried out at least every 6 – 12 months to ensure a pest-free environment for you and your family.
Here’s what you can do to prevent pests from encroaching on your home or property:
Step 1: Start with Exterior Inspection
Begin by examining the exterior of your home. Look for any visible cracks or gaps in the foundation, walls or windows that pests can use as entry points. Check for signs of nests, droppings or chew marks near doors, windows and utility entrances. Trim bushes and trees away from the house to eliminate potential pathways for pests.
Step 2: Inspect Doors and Windows
Thoroughly inspect all doors and windows for gaps, broken seals or damaged screens. These areas are common entry points for pests such as ants, flies and spiders. Ensure all screens are intact and fit tightly, preventing pests from sneaking inside.
Step 3: Assess Indoor Areas
Move indoors and carefully inspect all rooms, paying close attention to areas where food is stored or prepared. Check for signs of pest activity, such as droppings, chewed packaging or gnaw marks on furniture and baseboards. Look for cracks in walls, flooring or ceilings that may serve as hiding spots for pests.
Step 4: Examine Plumbing and Utility Areas
Pests are often attracted to moisture-rich environments, so thoroughly inspect plumbing areas, including under sinks and around pipes. Look for leaks, standing water or dampness that could attract pests like cockroaches or silverfish. Check utility areas, such as the basement or attic, for signs of nesting or damage caused by rodents.
Step 5: Don’t Forget the Garage and Outdoor Spaces
Pests can also find their way into your garage or outdoor spaces. Inspect these areas for any signs of pest activity, including droppings, nests or damage to stored items. Keep the garage clean and clutter-free to minimise hiding spots for pests.
Step 6: Ensure That Pests Have Nowhere to Go
Seal any cracks or gaps found during the inspection, install door sweeps and repair damaged screens. Keep food stored in airtight containers, promptly clean up spills and maintain proper sanitation in and around your home.
So You Have A Pest Problem?
If you live in Sydney and you think you have any of the following common household pests in or around your home, call us to discuss your problem. We’ll give you the option of either a targeted or general pest control treatment.
Cockroaches are nocturnal creatures. They rest during the day in cracks and crevices before coming out at night. If you’re seeing any cockroaches in your home during the day or before you go turn off the lights at night, there’s likely to be plenty more lurking and running around after dark!

Rats and Mice
Are you hearing or seeing physical evidence of rats and mice?
Rats and mice are not only highly infectious creatures, they are also prolific breeders. Eradicating them is crucial before they contaminate your food, spread disease and damage your electrical wiring.

Australia has more than 2,400 different species of spiders, and about 50 that are harmful to humans.
If you’re not sure what spiders you’re seeing or you’re unsure of how big of a problem you really have, then we’ll talk to you about what you’re seeing and give you an obligation-free quote over the phone.
Ants love to live in communities, so if you’re seeing some ants in and around your home, rest assured there are plenty more nearby.

Often the first sign of bed bugs is spots of blood on your sheets where these pests have pierced your skin to enjoy a meal. Alternatively, you may notice evidence of bed bug droppings.
Bed bugs bite and they are also prolific breeders. An adult female bed bug can lay between 200 and 500 eggs a year. Bed bugs are nocturnal and spend their days hiding in cracks and crevices in and around your bed before coming out at night.
We’ll talk to you about what you’re seeing and give you an obligation-free pest control quote over the phone.
And what about the pests you might not see, hear or feel?
Termites are perhaps the most damaging of all pests and the hardest to identify.
You may have seen flying termites which are often the first sign of a larger termite infestation in your home. Or you might have seen spare pieces of timber around your house along with termite tunnels or galleries.
Termites can cause a lot of damage to your home’s foundations. It’s crucial to prevent termite infestation or to eradicate them as soon as possible if you’ve already been infested. They are prolific breeders and they can damage your home very quickly.

What Should I Do if I Notice Termite or White Ant Activity or Damage?
The most important thing for you to do is not to disturb what you have found. Disturbing any signs of termites can cause the termites to go back underground and come up in another area of your home. Contact us for some friendly advice or to organise a professional termite and white ants pest inspection to be carried out as soon as possible.
How Can I Safeguard My Home From Future Termite and White Ant Infestations?
Termites and white ants cost homes billions of dollars every year, but it’s easy to prevent yourself from falling victim. Here are some pointers:
- Sign Up for Regular Inspections — At Forensic Pest Control, we can assess your home and determine how often you should have an inspection carried out, so you won’t have to worry about future infestations.
- Use Termite-Resistant Materials — When conducting repairs, installations or renovations at home, ensure that you speak to your construction manager regarding the use of termite-resistant materials while construction is ongoing.
- Store Firewood Properly — As much as possible, firewood should be kept away from the ground and potential crawl spaces for termites and white ants.
- Use Mulch Sparingly, or Not at All — Instead of using mulch, try crushed stone or pea gravel instead — they also retain moisture in underlying soil without attracting termites and white ants. Use mulch sparingly if you need to (application of a couple of inches is fine), but keep it away from windows, doors or wood framing.
Have Your Home Professionally Cleaned as Much as You Can — Whether it be once a month or every week, professional cleaning can do wonders for ensuring that termites and ants don’t thrive in damp, unsanitary places. And if your cleaner suspects termites are around, you can easily contact us!
Do you offer any type of warranty for your pest control Sydney services?

How long does this Sydney pest control service take?
Depending on the size of your home generally between 1-2 hours.
What areas of the home are treated with general pest control treatments?
Exterior of the home
All entries, gutters, downpipes, Eaves, Window Frames, Doors, Vents, balconies, verandas / patios & Garages are treated using an insecticidal liquid.
Cubby Houses, sheds, clotheslines, footpaths and fence lines are also treated using an insecticidal liquid.
Interior of the home
A perimeter edge spray is applied to all accessible skirting boards & your cornices are spot treated throughout every room. Cockroach gel bait is applied to cupboards throughout the kitchen and bathroom areas. A crack and crevice treatment using an aerosol or insecticidal dust may also be used as required.
Sub Floor, Roof Void and Wall Cavities
We treat these areas using an insecticidal dust and insecticidal liquid. We also apply rodent baits to the roof cavities. These areas are harbourage areas for cockroaches, spiders, ants, mice and rats. Very important areas to include as part of your Pest Treatment.
Do I need to leave the house?
In most cases you do not need to leave, however we advise our clients to at least vacate the premises until the control agent dries normally between 1-2 hours.
Do I have to empty the kitchen cupboards out?
No, it is not necessary to empty out your kitchen cupboards. If you have German Cockroaches which is not included in a General Pest Treatment then we do recommend that you empty your cupboards.

What should I expect to pay for a Sydney pest control treatment?
This depends on the type of home ie a Unit, Townhouse or house and also the size of your home ie Single storey or Double storey.
Is pest control required for new homes?
Yes as during construction and landscaping the ground is disturbed. This in turn disturbs pests and their environment. Having a treatment carried out will also prevent pests from coming into your new home.
Can I do my own pest control?
Your welcome to but with careful consideration. When you hire a Licensed Sydney Pest Control Technician you will find they have been highly trained in the correct identification of pests and also how to identify the correct source of the problem before applying pesticides. Taking a holistic approach to pest control means you are not solely relying on the application of chemicals. Changing the environment that attracts pests is most important.
Why should I hire a home pest control service?
It is possible to get rid of pests by yourself, but hiring a professional pest control team ensures that they’ll be gone for good. Here are a few reasons why you should call us for all your pest control needs:
- Expertise and Knowledge — Professional pest control technicians have extensive knowledge and training in identifying pests, understanding their behaviour and implementing effective control methods. Our team can accurately assess the severity of an infestation and determine the most appropriate treatment approach.
- Customised Solutions — We can provide tailored solutions based on the specific pest problem and the unique requirements of your property. We consider factors such as the type of pest, the extent of infestation, the layout of the premises and any specific concerns you may have.
- Safety and Health — Our professional team is trained in the safe handling and application of pest control products to ensure minimal risk to humans, pets and the environment. They can also provide guidance on necessary precautions and post-treatment care.
- Long-Term Prevention — A professional pest control service not only addresses the current infestation but also focuses on preventing future pest problems. We can advise you on pest-proofing your property, implementing preventive measures and scheduling regular maintenance to keep pests at bay.
- Cost and Time Efficiency — While DIY pest control methods may seem cost-effective initially, they can be less efficient and more time-consuming in the long run. Our team at Forensic Pest Control has access to specialised equipment, advanced techniques and professional-grade products that yield better results. Hiring us saves you time, effort and potential expenses of recurring infestations.
How do you decide when treatment is needed?
We follow this systematic approach:
- Inspection — We examine the affected areas, potential entry points, nesting sites and signs of pest activity.
- Assessment — Based on the inspection findings, our home pest control team assesses the severity of the infestation and determines the most suitable treatment options.
- Treatment Plan — Our team develops a treatment plan tailored to the specific needs of the situation. This plan outlines the recommended treatment methods, products or techniques to be used and any necessary follow-up actions.
- Implementation — Our team carries out the necessary procedures. We apply the chosen treatments, set up preventative measures and address any identified vulnerabilities that could contribute to future infestations.
- Evaluation and Monitoring — After the initial treatment, we monitor the treated areas for any signs of pest activity, conduct follow-up visits if necessary and make adjustments to the treatment plan to ensure long-term control and prevention.
