I have been using a Termatrac for over 8 years. I find it an invaluable tool to aid my research into bringing new termite control products to the Australian market.
If I conduct a treatment on a house, I like to know all sites of termite activity before commencing, without disturbing the termites. This way when the treatment has been done and I am conducting my subsequent post-treatment inspections, if there is no activity on the Termatrac at the same locations as pre-treatment activity, then the treatment has been successful. A visual assessment can chase termites from an area only for them to return after the experiment has finished. I also find it useful in tracking the entry point into the dwelling. Overall the Termatrac remains one of my most important research tools.
