Termite Inspections Are Important

Termite Inspections Are Important

Termites are the most destructive insect pests of wood in the United States. They cause more than $ 5 Billion worth of damage each year in the U.S. alone. That’s more damage than fire and windstorm damage combined. Because subterranean termites are very common in Arizona, termite inspections are an important component of the home buying process. We can provide termite inspections and WDIIR reports.

About Termites

In nature subterranean termites are beneficial because they break down cellulose into soil. Termites only become a problem when they cause damage to structures. Since they can be very elusive they often go undetected. A properly trained and licensed inspector understands their behavioral patterns, and conditions that are conducive for infestations.

About Termite Inspections

In the state of Arizona an inspector must be licensed by Arizona Office Of Pest Management (Arizona Department Of Agriculture) in order to inspect for and identify termites and other wood destroying insects. A Wood Destroying Insect Inspection Report commonly known as a termite report, is the state regulated form that is used for WDIIR inspections. This report identifies any previous or active wood-destroying insect infestations. It also points out any conditions that are considered conducive for infestations.
