Insects generate enough heat to be seen through thermal imaging

Small animals such as rodents, squirrels and crawling insects such as the ever growing ant and termite colonies, regularly search for food, water and shelter for survival. In northeastern regions of the U.S, cooler months of September through October common insects of that region migrate into heated structures suitable for their survival. These little arthropods are very particular about where they spend the winter months. The environment within a structure must have all of the elements essential for their colony such as water, heat and food. Wall, floor and ceiling voids make perfect sanctuaries especially when wood structures are exposed and damaged by condensation buildup from steam or leaking water pipes that make for a suitable environment. Thermal imaging detects cold and heat signatures which are translated as living or non-living targets by our trained technicians.

Identify the cause of infestation

Not only do we identify insects harboring in the structure, we can also identify excessive condensation buildup, leaky pipes, structural damage due to severe weather allowing rain water into the property causing even more damage, faulty steam valves contributing to the growth of dangerous fungus and mold underneath floor boards, wall and ceiling voids. Early detection is now available for our customers, a regular monthly, quarterly or annual pest control service to your property will come with an added benefit of detection using Thermal imaging.

It takes just a few minutes to scan your home or office for hidden pests, leaks or electrical dangers.

Crawl spaces, attics, access panels, garages and basements have hidden electrical wiring, pipelines and of course pests. Our technician will scan over surfaces with the thermal camera which will detect hot or cold anomalies that may be identified as a serious water leak a faulty steam valve, a family of rodents hiding in your crawl space or a swarm of bees.
