Detection Ɩ Cure All Pest Control Ɩ Brisbane

Detecting termites outside your home

Every house is different, and that means that we must be prepared to use any and all means at our disposal to help rid your home of termites. Each of our termite specialists uses a range of different techniques and equipment to detect termites outside your home because we understand that no two termite jobs are the same.

Watch the video below to find out the methods we use to conduct a pest inspection in Brisbane.

Detecting termites inside your home

We understand that your house is your biggest asset and we are there to help you protect it. Repairing termite damage can be very expensive, which is why all our termite detection techniques are discrete and minimally invasive. We use the latest in termite detection technology to ensure that once we have completed our pest inspection in Brisbane we leave behind as little evidence as possible that we were there.

Watch the video below to see some of the methods we use to detect termites inside your home.

Equipment we use
All competent Termite Specialists use most of their senses:

  • Sight: Obvious areas (to the trained eye) where there is damage, mud oozing out of cracks, timber which is damaged, swollen or disturbed, doors which don’t fit properly or paint or timber which is discoloured.
  • Sound: Termites make a specific noise when agitated and once heard it is a case of never forgotten.
  • Smell: Termites generate methane gas. This is odourless, however because of the amount of moisture usually associated with reasonable quantities of termites there is usually odour generated by mould and rotting timber.
  • Feel: Damage can usually be felt. Either because of unevenness, weakness in timber or plaster or moisture from their workings.

In addition we also use a range of equipment that includes:

  • pest probe
  • torch
  • knife
  • ladder
  • moisture meter
  • borescope
  • termatrac
  • root probe
  • measuring wheel
  • overalls
  • knee pads
  • compass
  • pad, pen and paper

How we detect termites in your home

Most termite activity is hidden

Termites sometimes leave visual signs that they are attacking your home but often their activity takes place within ceilings and wall voids. Determining the extent of activity or damage often requires specialised equipment.

We use the latest technology to detect termites

At Cure All Pest Control, we use a range of technology and tools to detect termites that are non-invasive. Termites are easily disturbed, and typically any poking or prodding will cause them to seal up tunnels and move to a new area of your home that may affect successful treatment.

Watch the video below for further information on our termite detection technology.

The Termatrac Termite Detection Radar system

This device allows us to:

  • Precisely locate and confirm the presence of termites.
  • Do this without the need for physical penetration of walls, floors or ceilings.
  • Not disrupt any termite activity that may impact on the success of any following treatment.
  • Operate in a completely safe way, emitting even less microwave energy than your mobile phone.

Thermal Imaging technology

Our Thermal Imaging system uses infrared technology to detect changes in temperature allowing our pest control technician attain a better understanding of the conditions inside the areas of your property that we cannot see:

  • Termites typically seek out warm, moist environments.
  • Thermal imaging technology allows us to assess whether or not those environments exists within your home.
  • We can do this without having to physically alter any part of your property.

Termites typically generate heat when they build their homes or tunnel inside structures, meaning that we can compare the relative temperatures to the surrounding areas to make an assessment as to whether the heat generated is an indication of termite activity.

Videoscope for visual inspection 

Sometimes to verify the information from other tools our team may want to visually inspect inside walls, floors or ceilings. To do this we drill a small, discreet hole and insert a flexible scope to view and report termite entry points or nests or follow termite leads.
