Thermal Imaging Inspections

Infra-red technology for termite detection

Thermal imaging is not a new technology, however its application in the pest management industry has only been seen in the last five to ten years. Thermal imaging being used for termite detection is no magic wand, it is a tool that can be very a valuable aid to an experienced termite inspector.

Thermal imaging can be particularly useful in the detection of termites that may have been elusive for many years. Thermal imaging alone is not a method of termite inspection that is fool proof. The thermal camera must be used in conjunction with a full visual inspection carried out by an appropriately qualified experienced person.

Not a magic wand, but a useful tool in experienced hands

A thermal imaging camera when used correctly will display on its screen an image of the infra red radiation being emitted from the top 1000th of an inch of the surface that the camera is being pointed at. For an analysis of the information that is contained within that image, the technician must have a good understanding of what the image should look like in normal circumstances so that a comparison can be made and any anomolies dealt with.

Our thermal imaging experts are all Level One Thermographers and hold at least Certificate III in Asset Maintenance Pest Management. They have all had more than 15 years' field experience.

Thermal imaging used to detect termites in the wall of a weatherboard house

Mostly, thermal images that show where termites may be working, are not as starkly visible as in the image above, where an entire termite colony was located within the wall of a house.

A thermal inspection is suited to homes where a visual inspection has failed to either locate where termites are nesting or if in fact activity exists at all. A thermal inspection can take up to four hours to complete.
