Termite Detection by cutting-edge technology using Thermal Imaging
A termite detection device is used to competently and efficiently perform termite detection services. With the equipment, termite risk areas are easily detected using the built-in thermal sensor and moisture meter, and then precisely detect, locate and confirm the presence of termites. A comprehensive report on the extent of the termites’ activity/infestation will be furnished to the customer.
A large part of effective control is to maintain checks on environmental conditions and changes to the structure that could encourage termite attack in the future. That is why on-going maintenance and inspections are so important.
Insects are considered as cold-blooded creatures but heat is associated with their presence, due to the metabolic processes of digesting wood and cellulose. Termites are hosts to bacteria, which live in their gut, and these bacteria help break down and digest cellulose, the main component of wood. It is this digestion and chemical reaction that generates the heat.
Old measures of detection are difficult and rely on knocking on wood. Finding termites can be difficult, yet knowing where they are located is important when deciding on the correct eradication program.
Integrated Inspection System is a powerful and non-invasive set of tools featuring high-resolution thermography and long-range night vision. This set of tools (Termiscan and Co2 infrared sensor) will monitor and diagnose the condition of your building structures, pest infestations as well as moisture, seepage, mould and fungus growth.
Thermal imaging offers a new, high technological detection system that is quick, effective and does not require any damage to houses, buildings, structures etc.
- Detects heat patterns from termite colonies.
- Records the change in heat patterns.
- Indicates the exact location of termite infestation.
The Termiscan utilizes infrared technology which is the non-contact mapping and analysis of thermal pattern from the surface of an object.
The thermal imaging camera is sensitive allowing us to “see” and “measure” heat. Thus, in a termite infested building, it is able to detect the slightest temperature change where there is termite infestation on and areas of moisture.
