Termite inspection Equipment We Use

With all termite inspections we use the latest thermal imaging equipment to effectively locate and assess any damage and the existence of a termite colony.

Termatrac T3i

Of all the termite detection devices, this is the most comprehensive tool in the pest control industry. It incorporates Termite Detection Radar, Remote thermal sensor and moisture sensors. It also has a reporting feature for ease of client report generation which includes Data Storage, Analysis and Presentation features. One of the major advantages of Termatrac T3i is that it is non-intrusive. That means it doesn’t interfere with the physical appearance of your home. No wall, ceilings or floor penetration.

This device can detect termite activity in inaccessible areas of your home. It is widely considerred as one of the most sophisticated detection devices in the pest control industry.

Moisture meters

Designed to read moisture levels during a termite inspection. There are two categories of moisture meters used by pest exterminators. The pin-less and pin type. The pin-less moisture meters scan the general surface using radio frequencies to check the presence of internal moisture. They are useful when inspecting impenetrable surfaces.

Thermal imaging camera

Largely, infrared thermal imaging cameras are used to detect faults in buildings.  Both living and nonliving things give out infrared heat. Initially, this principle was used by military personnel in surveillance missions. The best example of modern devices using this technology are binoculars, night viewing, and measuring devices.  

Listening Devices

Due to vibrations and movement when rubbing their mandibles together, termites produce noise in the timber. Acoustic emission devices amplify this noise to establish the presence or absence of termites. However, wall covering and background noise can affect the efficiency of this tool. Noise detection can only extend as far as 80cm along the surface and less than 10cm across. Not commonly used in the industry anymore.

Donger or Termite Tapper

Used to tap and run along exposed timber. When it reaches infested wood the tapping tone changes.

Signs of Infestations

The most common signs found during an inspection are bubbling or cracked paint or plaster, damaged skirting boards, window sills and door frames. Other signs of infestation include:

  • Sagging floors and floorboards
  • Termite mud packing or mudding
  • Mud shelter tubes in foundation walls, architraves, brick foundations. Used for protection and a sign of white ants.
  • Hollow sounding timber – Tap on it and listen for a difference in sound
  • Noise. If disturbed soldier termites create rattling noises by hitting their heads against the walls of their tunnels. This is called “head banging”.
  • Piles of frass around the house

If your area is prone to attack we may recommend a regular termite inspection.

Services

What if we find termite activity? If we find termites in your property during a routine termite inspection first we will investigate the severity of the infestation.

Active Termite Treatments

If we locate active termites we recommendation termite treatment to destroy and kill the colony. We kill the colony by spraying termiticide directly infested areas. We will spray and treat infested areas thoroughly until we’re satisfied we have eliminated the colony. Soil treatments are the most effective ways to control live colonies.

Chemical Barriers

One of the best termite management systems to protect your property is a chemical termite barrier system. Installation takes around 4-6 hours and  involves digging and trenching around the perimeter of your property. We then spray liquid termiticide into the trenches and fill it back in. We use and recommend Termidor for all chemical treatments.

Baiting Systems

For the most environmentally friendly way of protecting your home is installing a termite baiting system. The “bait stations” are installed at 3 meter intervals around your property and monitored throughout the year.

Reticulation Systems

The Termite Reticulation System provides a chemical barrier also called a chemically treated zone around the perimeter of the home or building. Professional pest control experts will install a strong but flexible hose that acts as a pipe system. The pipe is filled with termiticide whiuch then slowly releases into the soil via small holes at 200mm intervals. This acts as a protective system to prevent future problems.

Slab Sprays

To ensure your slab is protected we spray a protective chemical barrier around it. It acts as a shield between termites and the concrete slab. The termitcide treatment can be sprayed directly around the slab, applied through rods or holes drilled into the slab.
