Thermal Imaging Surveys

Rentokil’s thermal imaging surveys utilise infrared technology to detect and locate hidden pest problems, allowing for quicker and more effective identification of deep rooted infestations otherwise invisible to the naked eye.

The use of thermal imaging surveys allow Rentokil technicians to target treatments to specific areas of your premises, resulting in quicker pest eradication and reducing the overall use of pesticides.

Thermal imaging is suitable for a range of applications including:

  • Swift identification of pest harbourages in cavity walls and other inaccessible voids.
  • Swift identification of nocturnal rodent activity.
  • Quick detection of bird roosting and nesting points within a building canopy. 
  • Minimal business disruption with night-time thermal imaging inspections of suspected infestation areas.

How Thermal Imaging Surveys Work

  • Thermal imaging tracks the heat signature of pests in hidden locations such as wall cavities, ceiling voids and stored commodities.
  • Cameras using infrared technology scan the premises for pests and proofing issues as part of an in-depth survey and areas that are warmer than the surrounding environment are indicated by a lighter colour on reports.
  • These areas are then further investigated by highly trained technicians as different heat signatures suggest potential pest problems.

Thermal Images

The images shown above were generated by a thermal imaging survey. The lighter area of the image indicates heat generated by a mouse in pitch darkness – this rodent would not have been visible to the naked eye.

Once the pest harbourage has been located by thermal imaging, pest are identified and Rentokil technicians then advise on a targeted treatment plan confined to the specific locations of infestation.
