The report will highlight any areas of termite activity or damage, conditions that may make your home more susceptible to a termite attack and recommendations on how to remedy any issues and protect your home into the future.
Standard termite inspections carried out by our experienced termite inspectors are good and will meet Australian Standards, but they are only visual inspections, they do not involve invasive techniques to look behind walls and other obstructions to see what’s going on behind.
Traditionally, we would need to drill holes in walls to allow borescope cameras to look inside. The new, smart high-tech way to see what’s going on is to use a combination of two of the latest termite detection tools; a thermal image camera and the Termatrac termite detection device.
Pink Pest Services continues to lead the industry by using the latest technology to deliver the best results for our customers. Pink Pest Services use either the Flir E60 or Flir T540 High Resolution Thermal Imager. These cameras provide up to 10 times the detection of ‘older’ devices and are genuine thermal imaging cameras.
Be aware of companies that claim to offer thermal imaging inspections, yet use cheap “thermal imaging equipment” that look impressive to the homeowner, but actually lack the sensitivity or resolution needed to pick up termite activity, lulling customers into a false sense of security.
Thermal imagers with lower resolution are not sensitive enough to really assist in locating termites. Pink Pest Services only consider the following models sensitive enough to ensure activity is detected; Flir E60, Flir T540, Flir T600 and Flir T 620.
We’re one of the few pest control companies in Australia that’s invested in this technology. The camera combined with our training means you gain access to the highest level of termite detection available … giving you that important peace of mind, knowing your property is clear of termites.
If we detect suspect areas with the thermal imaging camera or other areas of concern, we can also scan behind walls with our Termatrac device, the worlds No,1 termite detector. The Termatrac device contains a motion detector that can detect termite movement behind walls and is so sensitive that our trained inspectors can often track the termite activity to find the entry point where termites are accessing your house.
We also use high quality moisture meters – a piece of equipment all good inspectors should be using. This is valuable in picking up leaks behind walls and in showers, problems that need to be fixed to prevent termite attack – termites love moisture!
Moisture behind walls can also indicate an area of termite activity or even a termite nest (termites bring moisture into areas where they are active).
Used in combination with the thermal image camera and Termatrac, this three-pronged technology inspection delivers the most comprehensive inspection available, without damaging your home. Only if termites are detected would further invasive inspection be considered.
The next time you book your termite inspection consider a small extra investment for a high-tec termite inspection. When you’re protecting your largest investment, you want to make sure no stone is left unturned…. giving you that extra peace of mind.
