Fundamentals Of Thermal Imaging & Visual Termite Inspection

Fundamentals Of Thermal Imaging & Visual Termite Inspection

Looking for a termite infection in your area? A1 Pest Control Canberra will explain the fundamentals of thermal Imaging and Visual Termite Inspection as easy as 1-2-3.

Which is better visual or thermal imaging? Many people get confused on which inspection is better for their property and I want to explain the difference.

Basically, everyone needs an inspection annually to give peace of mind that there are no termites eating away and destroying your property.

What is known about the Termite Queen is she is capable of laying up to 30,000 live termites a day! They are frightening figures if you multiply that by 365 days of the year.

Let me explain the difference in the visual methods.


* Tapping tool
* Torch
* Moisture meter

The technician will use the above tools and feel and touch to detect abnormalities in woodwork in the roof, doors, windows, floor, walls, fence line and under the house.


Picks up heat and movement of termites, sees through walls and can also locate leaks behind walls and electrical faults.
This termite inspection would be ideal inspection for people buying a home so you don’t buy someone else’s problems!

Also the thermal imaging inspection is more thorough as it can also get to hard to get to places where there is no crawl room for the technician and weather is not a problem either as the technician can just point the camera at the area on the roof or flooring and take his reading from those areas.
