A Proper WDI Inspection
A proper termite and WDI inspection consists of several steps, which may not necessarily occur in this order:
An inspection of the exterior of the home, looking for signs of termite activity (such as termite shelter tubes, shown in the picture on the right), as well as conditions conducive to termite and other WDI infestation.These conditions may include, among other things, wood that is too close to the ground, dead tree stumps by the house, improper grading, leaky gutters or downspouts, or tree branches overhanging or touching the home.The inspector will also look for evidence of infestation by other wood-destroying insects, such as carpenter bees or carpenter ants.
An inspection of the interior of the home, with special emphasis on the basement, garage, door and window frames, and other areas that are particularly prone to WDI infestation. This part of the inspection will be both visual and physical, and typically involves visually inspecting, tapping, probing, and sounding susceptible wood.The inspector will also be looking for live termites or other insects, dead termite "swarmers" (shown in the photo on the right), other evidence of infestation (tubing, frass, signs of prior treatments, etc.), damaged wood, and conditions conducive to infestation (such as excessive moisture levels).
A detailed written summary of the inspection results. This includes a standardized inspection form developed by the NPMA and adopted by various state and federal agencies, and may sometimes include additional documents attached by the inspector to clarify the inspection findings.
When evidence of a past or present WDI infestation, damage due to an infestation, or conditions conducive to infestation are found, the inspector will usually attach his or her remediation recommendations and/or an estimate for treatment.
