“Due to the termite dogs keen sense of smell, a properly trained termite dog can detect termites behind walls making them closer to 95 to 97% accurate.” Research from the Entomology Dept. of University of Florida* has shown that properly trained termite dog teams are at least three times more accurate than human inspectors. Even the best termite inspector can’t see through walls. But a termite detection dog doesn’t need to, he can smell live termites through the wall and detect live termites before they have time to do so much damage to a structure that it can be visually detected by a human. Termite Dogs don’t need to see termites; they can smell them, through drywall, concrete, paneling and all other building materials. It has been proven by team after team that a termite dog is the best termite finding and business building tool on the market for the Pest Control Industry.
