Here is a house in Greenslopes, Brisbane, that has an obvious termite infestation. The house was rented and the tenants were moving out, when they discovered this in the wardrobe in the main bedroom.

 

I was called to inspect and treat this house. It’s obvious that the termites are here, but it’s not till I turned on the Infrared Thermal Camera that the whole story was revealed.

The Infrared Thermal Camera only sees temperature. The dark areas are cool and the light areas are warm. In the wardrobe floor is a bright warm area. This is the termite colony under the floor. The wall framing shows up dark and around the framing is dark shading. This is termite mudding. The severity of the infestation only shows up in the infrared thermal image.

If this house had regular inspections, by a good termite technician, then this termite activity could have been picked up early and the damage would have been minimal.
