The onsite inspection takes 1-2 hours for a standard property. Larger rural properties may take longer. We provide the full report within 24 hours.

In Queensland, pest inspectors must be licensed by the Department of Health. Our inspectors hold Builders and Pest Inspector licenses. We only use experienced inspectors.
