• What is a wood destroying insect (WDI) inspection?

    • This inspection is a non-invasive, visual inspection for evidence of wood destroying insects.  The inspection not only looks for termites, but also for other types of insects, including wood borers, carpenter ants & bees, and powderpost beetles, that can destroy wood in a home.

  • Should I ask for a WDI inspection?

    • Some lenders may require this type of inspection prior to financing.  Even if not required, this inspection, while limited, could prove useful in determining the structural integrity of the home.

  • If found, how are WDIs eradicated?

    • Depending on the type of insect, there are different remedies for removal.  If found, it is recommended a certified, licensed pest control company assist in correcting any WDI problem.

  • Who pays for correction if an infestation is found?

    • Issues found during an inspection are left to be negotiated by the parties involved.
