Wood Destroying Organisms / Insects (WDO/WDI) Inspection

What is a Pest Inspection?

A Pest Inspection (WDI/WDO) is a thorough assessment looking for signs of pest damage and finding the source of the issue.

Why is a Pest Inspection required?

Many pests, such as termites, carpenter ants, or powder post beetles, damage to wood from the inside out – making signs of their infestation less visible. As a result, their presence can go undetected for years and quickly escalate. Therefore, early identification from a Pest Inspection can help protect a homeowner’s investment, potentially saving hundreds of dollars in costly repairs.

What is covered in a Pest Inspection?

Trained and certified home inspectors at WIN spot the signs of pest infestation on a property and recommend a future course of action. Adding this service with a complete home inspection can go a long way in securing the home’s health.

During the process, trained and certified home inspectors evaluate a property’s exterior and interior, looking for signs of termite and other pest infestations. Areas can include (but not limited to):

  • Exteriors
  • Porches
  • Balconies
  • Attics
  • Crawl Spaces, Basements

While looking closely for all the signs, an inspector will likely be able to identify if pests have worked their way into a home. They can also spot mud tunnels, a common symptom of termite activity.

Findings are shared in a detailed and easy-to-read report that apprises homeowners of damage/infestation and affected areas.
