Assessment & Inspection 

An experienced technician will be able to identify the infestation and note the extent of the problem, particularly in roof spaces and under sub-floors. It is important to please leave any frass or droppings in place or keep a sample for our technician and tell him where it was found. We will give you a written report telling you the type of woodborer and extent of infestation. We can also identify whether you have live woodborer or signs of an old infestation. Our report will include recommendations and quotations for the different treatment options. Entomological inspections are usually undertaken for property sales.
