Termites are a major inconvenience and a serious household pest. Termite infestation devalues your home and can cause serious destruction over time. If you own property, it’s essential to have your home inspected to protect your asset against this unwanted and dangerous intrusion. Safe pest control services are available across Australia, with termite inspection in Perth based on detailed inspection, specialised termite control services, and long-term pest treatment programs.
Termite damage and inspections
Before you start pest treatment, it’s important to have your home looked at by a professional team. A pest control Perth inspection covers all bases, with our team able to recognise termites and look for specific signs of damage. The activities of termites are not always recognised by residents, which is why it’s critical to call in the pros. Generally speaking, a termite inspection team will look for signs of damage, signs of infestation, and signs of termites themselves.
Signs of termite damage
- Hollow and weak timber
- Sagging timber surfaces
- Cracked paint and plasterboard
- Prematurely damaged timber
Signs of termite infestation
- Power failures due to nests in electrical fittings
- Mud shelter tubes in brickwork

Signs of termites
A professional termite inspection can detect the presence of termites long before they start to cause damage. Along with being able to identify signs of damage and infestation, it’s also crucial to recognise termites themselves. Most termite damage in Australia is caused by three types of termite:
- Subterranean termites
- Drywood termites
- Dampwood termites
All of these termites can be distinguished from common winged ants due to their straight antennae, wide waists, and similar wing sizes on the front and back. If you’re unsure of what to search for, pest control services in Perth can help you to identify and control your termite problem.

Safe termite treatment depends on many factors, including the location and age of the property, the type of timber and building materials used, and the extent of the infestation.
