Moisture Meter used to Detect Sources of Moisture Related Insects

When moisture builds up and does not dry properly, it can potentialy breed insects. These moisture related insects can be psocids, silverfish, fruit flies and much more. The key to eliminating these insects is locating and identifiyng the source of the moisture. A great tool that Standard has employed for moisture detection is a moisture meter. In this photo the meter is being used to show how much moisture is in a wall void that is breeding fruit flies.
