Termite Inspection Tools
Termi-track is a very expensive and very effective breakthrough in development in the detection of termites, invented and developed in Australia using technology similar to radar. Termi track is the exciting answer to detecting termites through timber, plasterboard, bricks or masonry with no interference to the building material or termite activity.
Termi-track, explained simply, emits signals which penetrate the material you are searching. If these signals are interrupted by termite activity, the liquid crystal display will alert you to this activity. Termi track relays this information to you, so you can pinpoint the termites in an instant.
Then you can one track the extent of their activity without disturbance, track termites to entry point, locate nest via entry point, determined the most suitable treatment procedures, monitor termiticide application and bait placement. Termi-track makes termite detection easier and more accurate.
A thermal gun picks up temperature variations in walls and floors and digitises its findings. This can help identify active termites. A thermal imaging camera inpictulates temperature differentiations.
3. Moisture Meter
It is designed to pick up high moisture content in walls and timbers. Termites bring up moisture from the soil and into the walls and timbers.
4. Listening Device
This listens to sounds in the internal of the walls. However, if you tap the wall with your hand and put your ear up to the wall you can hear the soldier termites rubbing the mandibles together.
5. A Donger
It is designed to run along skirting and exposed timbers when it runs across termite infested timber the tone changes.
Binoculars are utilized to ascertain whether the roof has any major structural termite damage.
