Eliminate the guess-work in termite detection and treatment
The Termatrac Termite Detection Radar system, launched in 1999, revolutionized the way in which pest control organizations conducted termite detection and control services. It is the first and remains the only single technology device in the world that can precisely detect, locate and confirm the presence of termites without the need for physical penetration of walls, floors or ceilings, and will not disrupt and displace termite activity. This has not only eliminated the need for post-inspection repairs and inconvenience, but has also built a reputation for saving Pest Control Operators a significant amount of time whilst boosting their brand impression and confidence among customers.
The easiest way to explain the technology is that it's a cross between a Ground Penetrating Radar and a Tracking Radar. The object of a Ground Penetrating Radar is to penetrate a surface and bounce back signals to determine the density of the materials and identify objects, changes in materials and voids and cracks below the surface. Ground Penetrating Radars are commonly used to detect underground water supply and sewage pipes, as well as geophysical surveying for minerals. In contrast, Tracking Radars cannot penetrate surfaces, however the microwave signals are reflected off objects (such as an aircraft) thereby detecting their presence and movement. Combining the principles of the two technologies, the Termatrac Termite Detection Radar emits a specially calibrated microwave signal where its reflection detects the movement of a target through a solid material.
Revolutionizing the professional practice of termite inspections, the Termatrac Termite Detection Radar emits a microwave signal specially calibrated to detect termites. The emitted and received signals are processed to yield certain details about the nature of the signal disturbance; hence the Termite Detection Radar has been tuned to the movement of termite shaped objects.
This signal can penetrate dense material in walls, ceilings, floors and furniture, including timber, plaster, cement sheet, concrete, tiles, carpet, vinyl, and many other common building materials. If the microwave signal is interrupted by termite activity, a visual indication is displayed on the units screen that notifies the operator to the presence of Termites. The Termite Detection Radar is advanced technology that is simple to use.
