Thermal Imaging is the use of specific cameras to capture images based on the heat that objects emit. The warmer an object is, the more radiant energy it emits. This thermal radiation is invisible to human eyes but can be detected by specialised cameras which then translate this into visible light, resulting in a thermal image or ‘thermogram’.

A Thermal imaging camera is used in a variety of different settings, from government and military applications to building inspections and medical diagnoses. In each case, they offer a unique way of seeing the world and provide invaluable insights that would otherwise be hidden from view. One of the most common uses for thermal imaging is in pest control.

Thermal imaging cameras are handheld devices that can be used to detect termites, which are notoriously difficult to spot with the naked eye. Termites are attracted to warmth, so they tend to congregate in areas that are warmer than the surrounding environment and generate heat. This makes them much easier to spot with infrared technology, which can pick up even small variations in temperature.

Thermal imaging can also be used to find pests that are hidden behind walls or other objects. The heat signature of the pest will be visible through the wall, making it easy to find the exact location and eradicate the problem.

Overall, thermal imaging is an incredibly useful tool for pest control and can help to save time and money by quickly locating infestations that would otherwise be difficult to find.

Pests, such as rats and mice, are warm-blooded animals and so show up very clearly on a thermal image. This makes them easy to spot, even in the darkest of environments.

A thermal camera can also be used to identify potential entry points for pests, such as holes in walls or gaps in doorways. Thermal imaging is also widely used in building and pest inspections.

Moisture meter

A moisture meter is an essential tool for any termite inspection. Termites are attracted to moist conditions, so the presence of moisture can be a sign of termite activity. By measuring the moisture content of the soil, you can quickly identify areas that may be attractive to termites.

In addition, a moisture meter can help you determine whether or not there is enough moisture in the soil to support a population of termites. This information can be critical when making treatment decisions. If you find that the soil around your home is too dry, you may want to take steps to increase the level of moisture.

Flir cameras

Flir thermal imaging cameras are the best to identify moisture and termite activity due to their accuracy and ability to penetrate surfaces. Termite activity is often hidden behind walls or under floors, making it difficult to detect with the naked eye. However, Flir thermal cameras can quickly and easily spot termite nests, helping you to take action before they cause serious damage to your home. In addition, Flir thermal cameras are also excellent at detecting moisture, which can be a sign of leaks or other problems. By using a Flir camera, you can quickly find and fix potential issues before they become costly repairs.

Preventive tips to reduce moisture in a building

1. Inspect your property regularly for signs of moisture, such as leaks, condensation, or dampness.
2. If you find any signs of moisture, take action to fix the problem immediately.
3. Make sure that your gutters and downspouts are in good condition and are draining properly.
4. Inspect your roof regularly for leaks or damage.
5. Keep trees and shrubs trimmed away from your house to reduce the risk of moisture damage from falling leaves or branches.
6. Install a dehumidifier in your basement or crawl space to help keep the air dry and reduce the risk of mould growth.
7. Use exhaust fans in your kitchen and bathroom to help reduce the level of moisture in the air.
8. Keep your home well-ventilated to help reduce the level of moisture in the air.
9. Avoid hanging wet clothes inside your house to dry.
10. If you have a septic system, have it inspected and pumped regularly to avoid the risk of waterlogging.

Following these tips can help to reduce the level of moisture in your home and, as a result, the risk of termite infestation. However, even if you take all of these precautions, it is still important to have your property inspected regularly by a professional. A trained inspector will be able to spot signs of moisture that you may not be able to see and can take action to prevent an infestation before it starts.
