Household Pests atticmouse 6/3/2010
Hi There; does anyone have any good references/recommendations for locating household pests using IR? Without being too specific, let's put the pests into two categories: rodents and insects.

Thanks!

Warm blooded animals and the damage they do are easy to find. Depending on the time of day and temperatures.

Insect are cold blooded and therefore are the temperature of the surroundings.

Wasp nests and honey bees generate heat and again depending on the time of day and where they are located you will see their thermal signature.

Carpenter Ants and termites you will find nest areas where there is moisture.

I have some stuff posted on my website if you would like http://environmentalpestmanagement.ca/

Cheers! Ted

I would keep in mind that pest infestation in most cases are associated with moisture either from the pest or as a result of the infestation or as a result of moisture entering the building meaning that there is an opening to the interior of the building.
