Impact of a Pest Infestation

Any infestation involving pests such as rats, mice, fleas, flies, bed bugs or stored product insects (like weevils, larder, flour, biscuit or carpet beetles) can be distressing. However, there’s also the potential for business disruption if rodents damage business communication equipment or gnaw through fixtures and fittings.

A study of the business impact of pests of 1000 non-food businesses (including offices) found that the negative effect on staff morale was the most cited impact of an infestation, with businesses saying they also suffered a drop in revenue and damage to their reputation. Increased maintenance and repair costs and damage to goods are also a common impact of a pest infestation.

Our Inspection Process

  • We ensure that you know what our inspections involve and each SAYFER pest control technician is more than happy to answer all of your questions.
  • Termite or white ant inspections are a mostly visual process with the technician checking accessible areas of your home and property. The skill level, knowledge and experience of a technician are critical in the inspection process.
  • Prior to the inspection, our technicians will explain exactly which areas will be inspected and those that won’t. A note of any inaccessible areas will be made on your inspection report and the reason why it wasn’t inspected.
  • We’ll ask your permission to access private areas of your home and before we remove any necessary panels.
  • Inspections are carried out to a set checklist and include:
    • Interior– Kitchen and bathroom cupboards, skirting boards and wooden door jams, carpet tracking strips, floor boards, ceilings and cornices, gyprock walls.
    • Roof void– We systematically check other timbers in order of roof construction – top plates, ceiling joists, hanging beams, strutting beams, struts, underpurlins and collar ties.
    • Subfloors– We will seek your permission in the event that present access traps need to be cut to gain access. We inspect brick, concrete or limestone piers with ant caps. We check possible leads which may bridge capping into floor bearers and joists.
    • Exterior– Inspection of window frames, fascia boards and any wooden items that are part of or attached to the home. Gardens and property are also inspected, and this can include trees, landscaping, old stumps and storage areas.

Our SAYFER Termite Inspection Reports

We only use report formats which meet Australian standards and are approved by our insurers. Our report details the areas inspected, the technicians’ observations, the termite risk level and finally, recommendations to minimise that risk.

If we find termites, don’t worry you are in good hands. Our pest controllers will:


Thoroughly assess and determine the full extent of the infestation and any resultant damage.


Take all practical steps to locate the termite entry points – locating the entry point is not always achievable given most termite entry is concealed but, if it can be found, we can seal it which will stop any future entry.


Precisely identify the termite species – knowing and understanding the habits of the species allows for more effective, long term termite control.


After we’ve located and identified the termites, we’ll provide you with a full assessment of our findings.


Our job isn’t done just yet. We’ll give you detailed advice on the treatment options we would suggest for you current termite situation.


The SAYFER team ensures that each treatment is carried out under our strict quality standards and specifications.
