Co2 Termite Detection System


Alliance Anticimex® has acquired a new system to enhance termite monitoring and inspection processes. The CO2 Termite Detection System (TDS) uses an innovative infra-red absorption sensing cell in the detection process. The TDS unit is equipped with powerful CO2 containment sensor combined with a small vacuum pump which constantly draws in air samples. The TDS samples the air in the wall cavities of buildings and analyzes its composition.

If there is an increased level of CO2 detected, the TDS unit will generate a series of beeps, indicating a strong possibility of the presence of termites. The TDS unit can track termite infestation within a 1.5 square meter area and can even detect the amount of CO2 produced by just three hidden termites.

Interesting facts
  • Termites produce more Carbon Dioxide (CO2) each year than all living things combined.
  • Scientists have calculated that termites alone produce ten times as much carbon dioxide as all the fossil fuels burned in the whole world in a year.
