Preparing for beetle compliance inspection/treatment

During a beetle inspection, the accessible parts of the property are inspected for infestation by timber destroying insects of all kinds. Woodborers may be active in timbers which appear free from infestation, as it is seldom possible to detect an infestation unless evidence appears on the surface of the timber. In order to assist our inspectors to carry out an adequate inspection, please ensure that all areas are accessible. Please note we do not move heavy furniture or goods if it renders some areas inaccessible.

If treatment is required to obtain the Beetle Compliance Certificate:

  • We suggest that small animals and children are kept away from the premises for the first 24 hours.
  • The property can be properly ventilated immediately after the application.
  • A mild solution of soap, an essential oil such as Lavender and water may be applied to the floors directly with a mop. (This only applies to a spray treatment of floors.)
