Annual Termite Flight Brisbane

Did you see the latest Channel 7 news report on the next annual termite flight Brisbane?

What is the Annual Termite Flight Brisbane? 

South East Queensland is an infamous termite hotspot and all residents should be on the alert over the next few week for the annual termite swarms.

Mid-November to mid-December is the peak time for termites to mate and start new nests (colonies). The conditions following Cyclone Debbie’s visit have been ideal for termites and with an unprecedented number of termites ready to procreate we are in for a larger than normal infestation.

Termites usually swarm at dusk when the weather is hot and humid, especially before storm activity. Hence their love of South East Queensland.

How to Protect Your Property from Termites

Home owners are only likely to become aware a swarm has taken place when they find dead winged termites in the windowsills and on the floors.

So what can you do? Here are some tips from ASBIR:

  1. Check your home & garden for signs of activity (mudding, nests, flying termites, dead termites)
  2. Check for leaking taps, drains/down pipes, stored water areas & areas with a lot of foliage
  3. Check your weep holes / slab edge
  4. Pay particular attention to stumps, retaining walls, and loose timbers
  5. Call ASBIR to carry out a full termite inspection. Request a free quote here

And if you find signs of activity remember:

  • Don’t disturb them (if you can avoid it)
  • Don’t spray them with bug spray, you will only make them move on to the next safe zone
  • Try to take photos or videos of the activity to keep on hand for your termite specialist

While the temptation to move the termites is huge, it can actually make it harder to locate them when your inspector arrives. Best to leave them in place until a qualified building inspector can assess the extent of the infestation and damage.

What is a Dilapidation Report?

A Dilapidation Report or existing condition inspection report is a specialized building inspection that identifies any existing issues such as cracking, subsidence, building defects or damage.

This report will note the current condition of properties surrounding and adjacent to new construction or works prior to commencement. This is so that any problems or claims that may arise after construction are able to be compared to the pre-construction condition report.

Why do I need a dilapidation report?

Common problems that may occur during construction include cracking, settlement, subsidence, movement, water seepage, concrete deterioration, glass damage; roof damage or deterioration to building elements.

Damage and defects can be caused by any kind of construction, development, renovation or works, including new buildings like unit complexes or high-rise developments, major renovations to existing structures, road building, or other infrastructure.

Damage and defects can also be caused by demolition, use of heavy equipment, piling, vibration, underground tunneling, or excavation, or other traffic or persons onsite during construction.

When do I need a Dilapidation Report?

Before any construction is undertaken you need to determine any possible existing problems, which if not documented prior to construction can cause potential problems and possibly disputes or claims later.

We recommended you book your Dilapidation Inspection after approval has been received but prior to construction.

Why do I need a building and pest inspection?

Wondering why you need a building and pest inspection? Check out this short video with ASBIR’s Senior Inspector, Fred Broekman. 

Special thanks to Place Estate Agents Coorparoo for this video in which Fred shares some practical tips for both buying or selling a property.

 

Tips for Selling A Property

Put yourself in the buyer’s shoes and ensure that the house doesn’t just look pretty but functions correctly.

In this video Fred recommends making sure all doors and windows, or anything that opens and closes works exactly as it is intended to.

“This also includes checking taps and washers running properly, and that there’s no leaks underneath,” Fred said.

Tips For Buying a Property

“It’s also very important that you do a building and pest inspection to make sure the property is structurally sound and doesn’t have termites.”

These are the things that can end up costing you a lot of money down the track, so you don’t want to be stung paying too much money for a property that isn’t in good nick – or has a lot of surprises.

It’s worth investing in an independent building and pest inspection to get an accurate snapshot of the property’s condition.
