Termite radar, Why is this tool so important to a building and pest inspection?
The Termatrac T3i is only available to operators who have had training and accreditation. This tool enables the inspector to differentiate between moisture and movement. Termites will provide a high moisture reading, however, traditional moisture meters do not detect movement. The use of this tool will save you money as it will enable the inspector to detect movement behind walls saving you to return and carry out an invasive inspection.
