Technology We Use 

There are a number of products and solutions that can be used to inspect your home.


Termatrac is a breakthrough development in the detection of termites, invented and developed in Australia using technology similar to radar.

Termatrac is the exciting answer to detecting termites through timber, plaster board, brick or masonry with no interference to the building material.

Termatrac can detect termites through Timber, Plaster board, Brick or Masonry with out disturbing them this allows for a more effective treatment. With no drilling, tapping or prodding of the timbers of your home.

How Does It Work?

Termatrac, explained simply emits signals which penetrate the material that is being tested.

If these signals are interrupted by termite activity, the liquid crystal display will alert the operator by showing up on the readout.

Moisture Meters

When applied to a surface, these may detect high moisture levels behind plaster sheeting and timber walls, indicating the presence of conditions that attract termites even when there are no outward signs of damage. 

A moisture meter will also detect fungal decay due to leaking pipes or rising damp. All high moisture readings should be investigated to determine the cause. 

Optical Probes  (Borescope)

This piece of equipment allows viewing of areas that would otherwise be impossible to see into, eg wall cavities, inside trees

Where termites are suspected to be present behind walls, their presence may be confirmed visually by drilling a small hole and inserting a ‘Boroscope’ which illuminates the wall cavity. 

The inspector views the inside of the cavity via the eyepiece, rotating the boroscope to get a 360 degree view.

Image Examples

The following termite images were taken through the BugEye Technoscope using the photo adapter Camera. Images such as these can also be achieved. 

Infrared Thermal Imaging Camera

Within their nest, workings and leads, termites create a climate which is discernibly hotter than its surroundings.

Infrared Thermal Imaging passively reads the surface temperature differential of the surface it is pointed at so that termite problems may be detected without disturbing walls and even before termites create significant damage.

When used by properly trained inspectors, large areas can be scanned quickly to identify and target hot spots accurately. Apart from sourcing termite activity, Thermal Imaging may also be used to identify moisture and ventilation problems.

Upon completion of an inspection a detailed report is issued , often photos are included, along with comments on improvements/alterations that can be made to the home to reduce risk of termite attack.

The best way to protect your home against termite attack is with a combination of inspection and prevention.
