CO2 Termite Detection—The Tool R.I.P. Uses for Termite Inspection in Northern Beaches
After having 20 years of termite experience, we have found out that CO2 TERMITE DETECTION is an advanced and accurate measurement of termite activity. It works instantly and detects live termites through its readings of CO2 levels within materials. It is a most valuable tool in the termite kit. Our other devices give readings in walls, floors, ceilings etc, but this device will automatically tell you if it is termites or not. R.I.P. uses CO2 Termite Detection for assessing termite activity at your property.
Facts regarding termites and their CO2 Production
Termites produce more CO2 each year than all other living things combined. Scientists have calculated that termites alone produce 10 times as much carbon dioxide as all fossil fuels burned in the world in a year. Termites produce this amount of carbon dioxide from their digestion of wood. On average termites expel gas composed of about 59% nitrogen, 21% hydrogen, 9% carbon dioxide, 7% methane and 4% oxygen.
