pest control Sydney A1 Pest Control Expands Into Thermal Imaging Termite Inspections Using the Latest Technologies in Termite Detection and Tracking
(PRWEB) March 3, 2011
A1 Pest Control in Sydney, Australia expands into Thermal Imaging Termite Inspections using the latest technologies in termite detection and tracking. Thermal termite inspection s for a current or prospective new home are the latest trend in the pest control industry. Visual inspections with some tapping might not be a “good enough” report for a new purchase or existing home, especially if it has hidden or inaccessible areas.
Thermal Imaging Cameras produce images of invisible infrared or ‘heat’ radiation and are able to precisely measure the temperatures of target object surfaces. Thermal (sometimes known as infrared) energy is light that is not visible to the naked eye, but visible to special lenses within Thermal Imaging Cameras. This technology can detect heat radiation in a way similar to an ordinary camera registers visible light, but displaying an image of characterized by heat differentials, enabling the operator to see and measure thermal energy emitted from an object.

The argument against having them are that visual inspections are a lot cheaper, and some people could probably use the extra couple of hundred dollars elsewhere.
Those exact same thoughts have occurred to many people either purchasing a new home, or worried that they may have termites within their existing home.
Some actually acted on that thought. Most never work through the daydream stage.
Frequently it’s because they think its too expensive. In other cases it’s because it’s a big unknown and new, confusing technology. Still other times it’s because they think they are used to the old methods.
O.K. now, wait up a minute. That was a big dose of negatives to start with in those opening paragraphs! On the positive side, there are at least 3 explanations why it may be best to get a thermal termite inspection.
1. To start with, for the “Pro” side, thermal termite inspections identify exactly where the termites are when they produce heat. And they always produce heat.
All right, on the “Con” side, some people have a legitimate point when they say they may be more expensive than regular inspections.
But the small extra cost may save stress, worry and thousands of dollars in timber damage and court costs, chasing the termite inspector that missed the damage because he only did a visual check.
2. Second off, consider that they are non-intrusive, in other words they don’t leave holes in the wall or have the need to tear anything down. And, additionally, consider that they areentirely environmentally friendly.
3. Third, the home owner or purchaser gets to know exactly where termites may be travelling, instead of the inspector just guessing and giving his opinion.
Which means a thermal inspection is much, much more accurate than the traditional visual inspections.
And in addition to that, money is saved if active termites are found because the pest control firm will be able to use less chemical in areas where it?s not needed.
Whenever the reasons are evaluated, a compelling case can be made for thinking of how to get the best value out of a purchasing decision. This is truly the next step in technology by getting the very best information and evidence of termite activity or absense of, by using Thermal Termite Inspections.
What if this technology is combined with another powerful white-ant detection tool called “Termatrac”? A tool that tracks white ant movement, moisture & heat?
The beauty of this latest invention is that it takes advantage of termites biology, as they never stop moving, or stop producing moisture and heat.
This allows complete peace of mind to make great buying decisions for a new home or protecting an existing home from termite attack.
