One of the innovations we have introduced into our pest control company is the use of thermal imaging cameras. This technology allows our rodent control technicians to identify areas of live rodent activity. This provides effective management and allows a more targeted approach to the eradication of rodents. We are able to see rodent infestations through various materials from as far as 50 feet away, including through breeze blocks, brickwork and wood.
There are many benefits in using thermal imaging to get rid of mice and rat infestations. It is by far a cleaner and more effective way of identifying and locating rodents. It allows us to accurately identify where they are and where their nests are. If rodents are nesting in hidden areas then thermal imaging gives us the location. Below is a thermal image taken within a normal image showing signs of rodent activity.
It’s also a more targeted approach as the baits and traps can be placed accurately, eliminating the need for guesswork. One of the greatest benefits is to the environment; even though the toxicity in the monitoring baits we use is very low, by using thermal image technology we can cut down on the use of such toxic products.
