Timber Pest and Termite Inspections in Perth
When buying a home in Western Australia, a professional timber pest inspection is essential.
Purchasing a new home is often the single most significant investment a person makes in their lifetime, so protecting that investment should be a top priority.
Unfortunately, termites cause billions of dollars worth of property damage in Australia every year, costing huge amounts of money to home buyers. We've all heard the horror stories of houses falling due to termite damage—making the cost of a pest inspection seem insignificant.

Home And Building Inspections
If you already own a home or commercial property and need a general pest inspection, look no further.
Bug Busters' skilled and certified pest inspectors will inspect every part of your existing property to look for wood-boring pests.
By examining your property's interior and exterior areas, our building inspectors can determine the extent of any pest activity and the conditions conducive to termite attacks.
Following our inspection—and after issuing a detailed report—we will follow up with an effective plan to treat termites and other pests, reducing potential damage and hopefully saving the structural integrity of your property.
Our building inspectors will also watch for any wood decay or mould around the property, especially in damp areas, which can attract termites and cause mould infestations.

Why Is It Important To Get A Pre-Purchase Property Inspection?
Buying a new property is one of the most exciting steps you can take for your family's future—but it also comes with a significant pest control risk.
Unfortunately, termite activity is prevalent across Western Australia, with wood borers a common cause of property damage, putting your new home at risk of fungal decay, wood rot, and structural damage.
The most common course of action to prevent such problems is to take out a thorough pre-purchase timber pest inspection before buying a new property, highlighting any termite infestations, termite damage, and other timber pests, before it’s too late.
