Wood Destroying Insects

Don’t let it bug you

Although commonly referred to as a "termite inspection," WDI stands for "wood-destroying insect," and a proper WDI inspection looks for evidence of infestation by termites, carpenter ants, wood-devouring beetles, and carpenter bees, as well as evidence of past infestations, damage to wood, or conditions conducive to infestation.

The inspection will point out conditions that could lead to infestation or support-hidden infestation. These include firewood, and other debris stored against the home, wood siding contact with the soil, and grade, which does not slope away from the foundation. All WDI inspections use the National Pest Management Association report format NPMA-33 that is recognized by most states and is the preferred report format for FHA, HUD, and VA mortgages.
