This video is the perfect example of why a professional pest inspector is needed when buying a new home or inspecting your current home. This damage was found on a pre purchase pest and building inspection on the Gold Coast for a return client. The damage caused by termites is more often then not found when it is already to late and the damage has been done, rarely ever will termites be found before any damage has taken place.
As you can see in this video the timber architrave looked perfectly fine and even to the eyes of a pest inspector the damage was not visible. It is not until the timber was sounded with the termite donger that the difference in sound can be herd and a closer investigation is under taken to probe the timber to reveal the damage caused by termites. In this case the termites had hollwed the centre of the timber out leaving quite a semi-solid outer surface. Without a professional pest inspection or termite inspection, damage such as this can be missed and you could potentially buy a home that is infested with live termites or contains expensive hidden damage.
