Thermal Camera Included in Termite Inspections

Thorough Termite Inspections with the use of a Thermal Camera gives us a deeper insight to what is happening inside those walls.

There is an amazing new technology that has come about in the world of termite invasion that involves Thermal Imaging Cameras in a termite inspection.

There are close to 12 species of termites in Australia that can damage sound timber, the majority of losses to wood product being triggered by subterranean species. Termite infestations cause millions of dollars to damage to Australian homes each year.

When trying to figure out if there is a termite infestation in a structure, it can be a bit difficult. Only about thirty percent of wood in a structure is visible.

Termites like dark, moist locations, they are likely prowling belongs to the structure that are not easily seen. For that reason, there needs to be another technique of detection which includes tapping the surface area of the wood while listening for a characteristic sound a sign of an underlying hollow space.

When a presumed location is located, the inspector seeks permission from the home owner and then uses a sharp probe, such as a screwdriver, to break the wood surface and locate wood galleries and live termites.

When trying to figure out if there is a termite infestation in a structure, it can be a bit difficult. Only about thirty percent of wood in a structure is visible. Because termites like dark, moist locations, they are likely prowling belongs to the structure that are not easily seen.

When a presumed location is located, the inspector seeks permission from the home owner and then uses a sharp probe, such as a screwdriver, to break the wood surface and locate wood galleries and live termites.

This approach has considerable drawbacks. The verification of an active infestation requires some localised damage to the wood. When termites are exposed in this manner, the destruction induces termites to pull away from the disturbed area and might reduce the efficiency of a subsequent localised treatment. For rather some time now, pest control professionals have actually been yearning for a less intrusive way to discover termites in a structure which is why it only makes good sense to utilise thermal imaging cameras in termite inspections.

Thermal cameras identify areas of heat to determine the existence of numerous objects making termite identification simpler and more reliable. Given that termites are living, breathing organisms, they do have a particular quantity of heat within their bodies. You will never have simply one termite in one area; you will have hundreds, so the heat they create as a group is easily visible with an infrared electronic camera. Once the area of concern has been located the inspector can further examine by inserting a small tube with an electronic camera called a borescope. This small camera is roughly the diameter of a 10c piece and can fit into any little location to help identify a termite invasion.

Infrared cameras and termite identification have taken the pest control field to new heights and have actually opened all sorts of new doors in the field of termite inspections. All our teams carry a thermal imaging camera as standard which is used on ALL Termite Inspections and Pre Purchase Building and Pest Inspections. There is no additional charge for the thermal camera.

With our Termite Inspection team using a thermal camera on all inspections, we can offer one of the most thorough inspections on the market.
