TermiCam Vision Termites cause an estimated millions of dollars damage to buildings around the world annually with one in three buildings being infested at least once in its lifetime. Termite detection is becoming even more important due to the banning of many chemicals that are now considered to be environmentally unsafe. TermiCam is an environmentally safe, non destructive system that uses no chemicals or radiation apparatuses. TermiCam aims to build a reputable business in the infrared detection of pest infestations. Our worldwide focus for TermiCam will be supported by ongoing research and development into thermal uses in pest management, industry, bio-medical detection, veterinary detection and horticulture applications. This along with commercial development, marketing and ongoing franchising opportunities will ensure TermiCam is the benchmark of the Pest Industry's future.
New Termite Detection System TermiCam has developed a new thermal detection system for termites utilising infrared technology. Other pests such as borers, ants, bees, date palm beetles, can be detected but generally we concentrate on termites. With TermiCam’s distinct image, word has spread quickly and over time our business has become more streamlined, with increased clientele assisting the initially small business into something bigger. TermiCam has earned a professional reputation, as emphasized by its uniformed technical representatives and Franchisees.

The alternatives The TermiCam method of detecting termites using infrared technology and TermiCam camera is proved to be more effective than other methods currently used such as: • Traditional methods - tapping, drilling holes and pulling walls apart – intrusive, destructive and unreliable. • Trained dogs which aren't reliable. • Moisture meters - as termites like moist humid areas like the kitchen, bathroom and laundry the moisture meter often does not detect termite activity where it should. • Microwave systems - showed a lot of promise in its early development, unfortunately microwave systems can be felt by the termites and are not very effective in wet areas. This system will not detect termites under concrete slabs or thick tree stumps.
TermiCam’s method TermiCam’s method of detecting termites with an infrared TermiCam developed camera has found them in thick tree trunks, under thick concrete slabs and in wet, humid areas of buildings. Currently there is no competition that matches the capabilities of TermiCam within pest industry and TermiCam hopes to maintain its lead by constant research, development, quality control and marketing. The TermiCam process will help prevent damage to thousands of buildings and houses throughout the world. Furthermore, a comprehensive Risk Management program would quantify savings and enhance the value of inspections.
What is Thermography? Infrared thermography uses the infrared spectrum to detect changes in the environment. This modern technology was developed during the gulf war period and is now finding wide applications in a variety of industries and applications. It is extensively used by police and military for surveillance, at night where it can detect people (as hot spots) in completely dark situations where they would be invisible to the naked eye. Infrared is an invisible portion of the light spectrum extending from 0.75 to 1000 microns. All objects warmer than absolute zero emit energy. The warmer the object, the brighter we see it in our thermal imager. White is hotter, black is colder.
