We had a call from a very upset homeowner in Wakerley, Brisbane, who had just found live termites in the wall behind his fridge. Of course it is upsetting to find termites in your home, but it is more upsetting when you have had the all clear from another company only one month ago! The interesting thing was that the other company didn’t use a Thermal Camera when they checked the house. If they had, they would have found several areas in the walls that had significant termite activity.
The photo from the Thermal Camera clearly shows the “hot” area in yellow. This heat was generated by a large bivouac (sub-nest) of termites packed in the wall cavity. It was “dogs’ balls” for a trained inspector using a good quality Thermal Camera.
