What devices do you use?

Introducing the one and only Termatrac®T3i  - the only device that detects, confirms  and tracks the presence of termites. 

• The Termatrac®T3i is the most advanced termite detection device in the world. 

• With patented radar detection, a remote thermal sensor plus a pinpoint accurate moisture sensor, the 3-in-1 device is the ultimate tool for the professional pest management technician. 

• It detects, confirms and tracks the presence of termites through an ingenious combination of cutting edge radar technology, backed by thermal and moisture sensors. 

• An easy to use tool that assists you in getting the job done confidently. 


RADAR

The unique termite detection radar does what  no other detector has ever been able to do.  It sends out radar through most common wall materials that locates and tracks the presence of termites, without the need for tapping or drilling holes in the walls for easy and  accurate treatment.


MOISTURE

The moisture sensor confirms that conditions need further investigation. The moisture component enables the professional pest control technician to easily identify areas of excess moisture as a possible risk area for termites. The moisture sensor is so sensitive it can even pinpoint rising damp.


THERMAL

The remote thermal sensor with built-in laser pointer shows changes in surface temperature; a common sign of termite infestation.



What are the most common types of termites?

Coptotermes

image2

5.8mm ± O.8mm

This species of termite is responsible for causing the most damage to properties across Australia. This is due to its widespread distribution, throughout Australia and its voracious appetite. They are easily recognised by the latex that is exuded from the fontanelle on the head of the soldiers when they are disturbed. The soldiers are aggressive and can bite when agitated. The mandibles are smooth with no serrations present, the head is pear shaped and rounded

Heterotermes

4.75mm±2mm

Heterotermes are pests of decking, fencing and weathered and decaying timber. They are rarely found in sound timber. In the tropics they do attack sound timber more often. Their long rectangular heads distinguish them. The mandibles are curved and have no obvious teeth.

Mastotermes

12.25mm

This very destructive termite is capable of causing extensive damage to timbers, Fortunately they are only found in the tropical north of Australia. They are easily recognizable by their size. Identification is confirmed by the number of segments in the lower portion of the leg. They have been known to totally destroy a home within 3 months.

Nasutitermes

4.2mm

Nasutitermes termites are easily recognized their beak shaped head and lack of mandibles. They are often darker in color compared to others. They usually build distinctive arboreal nest .

Schedorhinotermes

image6

This genus has two casts of soldiers, the Major Soldier and the Minor Soldier. The head is bulbous. The mandibles have teeth on the inner surface. The Major Soldier has uneven serrations on the base of the mandibles. The Minor soldier is about two-thirds of the length of the major soldier. They have a narrower head and more slender mandibles. Schedorhinotermes, are becoming a major problem termite and are now very wide spread. They are not known to attack Oregon timber. They are often found in bark chips in garden beds. Schedorhinotermes moult infrequently during winter and are hard to control for this reason.
