Mice, raccoons, rats, squirrels, bats, and bees… All kinds of critters are working hard to sneak their way into the dark cracks and crevices of your home or business, unintentionally causing serious damage. Some of these pests are easy to find, showing themselves at some very inconvenient times. More often, though, it’s easier to find evidence of their existence than to find the actual pest.
Fortunately, many pests – primarily larger ones like rodents – emit a significant amount of body heat, or their nests are full of moisture. Even some large gatherings of insects do the very same thing. This is actually a very helpful way to find the source of the infestation! But why? Infrared (IR) imaging can help you locate areas of heat or moisture hidden deep within the walls of your property. While thermal imaging cameras may not identify all types of pests, when used by a trained professional, they can help you locate some of the sneakiest of unwelcome visitors who are setting up camp inside your home.
