The above pictures show why the Inspector you choose to inspect your home should be a Certified Infrared Inspector/Certified Master Inspector CMI® like me. This compilation of thermal images shows the importance of infrared cameras in termite inspections, detection and eradication. Most of the issues would not have been visible with the naked eye, but with my thermal camera, I can see exactly where the termites are. Without Thermal Imaging, you will only see half the picture. When a termite colony is located thru the eyes of my thermal imager. I verify the nest with a moiture meter and (If permitted) I then drill a very small hole to insert my TDS (Termite Detection System) to determine if the Termite nest is active or not active.
