Using a heat seeker to find a mole

Postby jbcorreia on Fri Oct 24, 2008 5:17 am

Hello, maybe this is a stupid idea of mine but after struggling to find a mole that is destroying my garden, I came up with the idea of using a heat seekes to find its location undeground.

Now, does anybody know if a heat seeker is able to detect an animal under ground?

Thanks for any help you can proovide.

Have talked to several customers who report that it does NOT work. This does not surprise me, as heat seekers simply do not have the sensitivity to detect heat sources through any kind of insulation. Only option is an actual thermal imager, but I don't think you want to spend 5 grand plus to get rid of a mole. Sorry.
