While the VJ-Advance video borescope is used in a variety of industries, we sometimes receive no cost, no obligation borescope demo requests for applications that we’d never consider. At the top of that list: penetrating ant hills. Recently the VJ-Advance video borescope was used in a documentary from Red Sky Productions.

Rhett Turner of Red Sky Productions is producing a documentary titled “Secret of the Longleaf Pine,” which showcases the four seasons of the forest and gives an in-depth  look at the creatures that inhabit there.

RF System Lab was able to supply Rhett with a VJ-Advance articulating video borescope to get up close and personal with one of the animals living in the Longleaf Pine forest — the Florida Harvester Ant.

With our super-slim insertion tube, Rhett was able to get inside the anthill to see exactly how the Harvester Ants live and form their underground city.

“We were able to see a  lot of internal structure that we would not have been able to otherwise; we even got a glimpse at the Queen ant,” recalled Rhett.

You can enjoy a video taken with the VJ-Advance above. Thank you to Rhett for this unique encounter! If you would like to demo a VJ-Advance video borescope for your specific application, be in airplane turbine inspections or anthill studies, please contact a video borescope expert at (231) 943-1171.
