About the WDI Inspection

 A wood destroying insect report, or WDI, discloses the visually detected  presence or absence of wood destroying insects and evidence of their  existence in homes, buildings, or other structures. After performing the  required inspection, our inspector completes the WDI on a document  issued by the Texas Department Of Agriculture  called Form SPCS/T-4. All reports giving the same day. The report will have a graph of the home and other structures that was inspected. The report documents information pertaining to wood destroying insects  that include termites, carpenter ants, carpenter bees, and re-infesting  wood boring beetles. If the inspector finds visible indications of such  wood destroying insects, the report will note the type of evidence  observed.  The report will further state whether or not treatment is recommended for the control of specified wood destroying insects. 

How is WDI inspection performed ?

An inspector will conduct a  thorough visual examination of the readily accessible parts of the  structure. This includes attics or crawlspaces with sufficient room for  clearance that can be entered at the time of the inspection. Areas that  require breaking, removing, or dismantling parts of the structure such  as wall coverings or siding are omitted from the inspection.  Inaccessible areas are noted in the report. The inspection for the  report includes probing and/or sounding of accessible areas to search  for visual evidence of wood destroying insects. The evidence sought for  the report includes indications of present or prior activity of  wood-destroying insects visible in, on, or under a structure.  Permanently attached structural elements such as decks and porches are  generally evaluated in the inspection.
