Buying or selling a home can be a monumental task and termite control is always a part of the process. You may need a WDI or Wood Destroying Insect Report. We are a professional licensed termite and pest control company and have been doing termite work since 2000. If you're buying or selling, let us worry about termite control for your property.
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.
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.
