When our technicians come to your home to do an inspection, one of their greatest thrills is to find a termite nest inside the house. We understand that homeowners don’t share the same enthusiasm! But the “Unknown is better Known”.
To help us find this unpleasant discovery, the thermal camera is one of our greatest tools to indicate termite activity behind walls. This is especially so when we discover a nest. When you get large aggregation of termites, like you do in a nest, the heat produced by their bodies and activity emits a large amount of heat. This is picked up by a strong variation of surface temperature on the surrounding wall linings.
Check the video below to see how stark the temperature variance stands out on our thermal cameras.
