WDI Inspection | Wood Destroying Insect Inspectors Katy, Richmond & Fulshear
The Texas Department of Agriculture requires a WDI Inspection, aka Wood Destroying Insect Inspection, for any real estate purchases or sales including single-family homes, multi-family residences, and buildings that continue businesses.
Our WDI inspectors are not only licensed pest control technicians, they undergo specialized training to identify any signs of previous or active termite activity. What’s more, we know how to treat termites the right way. That means we also know where to look and what to look for to figure out if the home was previously treated for termites and someone covered it up to hide it.
What Findings Must an Inspector Disclose on a WDI Report?
Inspectors are required to disclose:
- Whether there is evidence of wood-eating insect (termite) damage
- If there is an active infestation with termites present
- If there was a previous infestation that has been covered up
- Whether action is required to treat termites or bait prevention measures are necessary to prevent future damage
WDI Termite Inspections in Texas
Our WDI inspectors are specifically trained to uncover signs of termites that eat wood beams inside the walls, roof, and structure of homes. That’s because Texas is home to two types of termites; Formosan subterranean termites and southeastern dry wood termites. The most common type of termites in our area are subterranean termites. Subterranean termites are also the ones that cause the most damage to houses because they eat wood. Drywood termites, on the other hand, live in the soil and rarely cause the same level of destruction as subterranean termites.
