Frequently Asked Questions

Why is an inspection necessary?

WDI inspections are often required by lenders, including for VA loans.


How often should I schedule an inspection?


Wood destroying insect inspections are typically recommended on an annual basis to ensure early detection and prevention of infestations. However, the frequency may vary depending on factors such as the location and history of termite activity.


How long does the inspection typically take?


The inspection usually takes less than an hour.

Are new houses vulnerable?


Unfortunately, termites can indeed attack a new house within days of its completion.


Are there other insects that destroy wood?

Yes, there are wood-destroying beetles and carpenter ants as well. Our inspectors are trained to differentiate between them.


Can I perform the inspection myself?

While it's possible to conduct a basic inspection yourself, it's recommended to hire a professional pest control company with expertise in termite detection. They have the necessary tools, knowledge, and experience to thoroughly inspect your property and identify any potential issues.


How do subterranean termites gain access to the house?


They can easily enter the house through a small opening as narrow as 1/64". They can enter directly from the soil or construct tubes connecting their colony to your home.

What happens if termites are found during the inspection?

If termites are discovered during the inspection, we will provide recommendations for treatment options based on the severity of the infestation. Options include localized treatment, such as spot treatments or targeted baiting, or more extensive treatments if the infestation is widespread.
