Thermal Imaging Inspection

Thermal imaging is another inspection and detection technique for locating termites. This technology detects heat patterns by measuring infrared energy (heat) and converting the energy waves emitted from hot objects or surfaces being scanned to corresponding maps of temperatures providing a viewable heat picture with differential heat patterns.

Termites require a moist, warm and humid environment in which to Termal Imaging EC Morelli Pest Controlthrive and when a mass of termite activity is concealed behind walls and other surfaces the heat generated from their presence is detected on outer wall surfaces by the thermal imaging camera.

Although, most termite infestations are located during a thorough Visual Timber Pest Inspection without the use of a thermal camera, when combined and with the expertise of a visual timber pest inspector this technology can be beneficial in pinpointing exact termite locations of large termite infestations. When thermal activity is located, further invasive investigation is recommended.

In conjunction with your Timber Pest Inspection a Thermal Imaging Inspection can be carried out by one of our level one thermogrophers.

Advantages of Thermal Imaging:

  • Non intrusive, non-invasive & non-destructive.
  • Large areas can be scanned faster and more efficiently to identify and target hot spots accurately.
  • Exact pinpointing of known infestations to allow accurate placement of termite baiting products or chemical application.
  • Can assist in detecting areas of moisture or thermal inconsistencies.

Limitations of Thermal Imaging:

  • The thermal imaging camera is not a tool that can be solely used be used to detect termites. We strongly recommend that a Visual Timber Pest Inspection utilising other inspection tools such as a moisture meter be carried out in conjunction with a Thermal Imaging Inspection.
  • Building construction materials can inhibit the use of the thermal imaging camera.
  • Thermal imaging cameras do not see through walls & cannot determine the extent of any structural damage. It basically only detects the surface temperature of whatever is being scanned.
  • Will not expose all termite workings or activity. It is useful in detecting termite activity when it is in mass but, will not necessarily detect small termite mud leads or limited termite activity.
