TERMITE TERMINATOR AT WORK
The Courier Mail - 5 April 2000

While pest controllers have been working on new ways to kill termites, one Brisbane entrepreneur has spent the past 10 years trying to find them.

In an attempt to avoid archaic and disruptive demolition procedures, Jim Davies invented a  radar-like technology which detects termites through solid barriers in a non-destructive manner.

The progressive-thinking businessman's method promises to thwart burgeoning numbers of termites and remove the guesswork from termite detection.
The technology is timely following a January announcement by the Queensland Building Services Authority to pursue fraud charges against a local pest control company. The firm allegedly charged home-owners and developers for anti-termite treatments it did not undertake.

Many homes in the Forest Lake community west of Brisbane were subsequently found to be harboring termites.

Mr. Davies's invention, known as TERMATRAC®, uses microwave technology to emit a radar signal that penetrates the material being searched. When a signal is disturbed by termite activity, the operator is alerted via a liquid crystal display.

"TERMATRAC® means that there is no need to tear up carpet, tiles and floor-boards to establish nests," Mr. Davies said.

"You are able to track their activity to establish their entry point, discover the extent of their activity, locate their nests and determine the most suitable treatment procedures," he said. Mr. Davies said the new technology was suitable for pest controllers, electricity companies, railways and forestry departments.

He came up with the idea during a nine-year stint as a pest controller. He said he could not understand why such a device had not previously been invented.

Mr. Davies worked on the project on a part-time basis when he could afford the time and the money to fund his research.

When the TERMATRAC® system was significantly developed, Mr. Davies sought investment to complete the $1 million project. ...
