Termite (WDI) Inspection in Frisco, TX
What is a Termite (WDI) Inspection?
First, we need to define the acronym W.D.I. It stands for Wood Destroying Insect.
A Termite (WDI) Inspection simply means a report is produced after the prescribed and necessary visual inspection is conducted as requested by the client or recommended by our office. Such an inspection and corresponding report will determine either the presence or absence of termites and other destructive insects or animals on your property.
Why It Is Important to Have a Termite (WDI) Inspection
- For your safety. You would want to live in a house that has no wrecked wooden parts, and thus, safe for your family and loved ones.
- For your property’s longevity. Nothing like living in a safe home, free of termites for as long as possible. You can sleep good nights for sure.
- For your buyer’s safety. You may be selling your home. Be fair to your buyers — have your property inspected.
The Nature of Termites
Anything of wood is a magnet for termites. Wood is beautiful but wood-boring insects like termites and other bugs can really destroy wood over the long term. The typical life of a queen termite is at least 20 years or more and can lay 40,000 eggs in a single day. Breeding pairs have wings and can fly to build new nests elsewhere. These insects are 24/7 and work night and day. You can even hear them at work, with a sound all their own. You can also visually see the extent of their damage, from pieces of wood that are falling apart or are thin and hollow.
The Danger That Termites Can Bring to a Structure
Because they are at it 24/7 non-stop, they can make that wood hollow and before you know it, you can step on what you thought was a solid plank when actually it has already become hollow. They especially love door jambs and rafters and hide in holes behind plywood. When you see them swarming – those breeding pairs – you will really be alarmed at how their numbers keep going. You can imagine what that number does to the wood in your home or building.
Termites can cause danger to a home’s occupants for we don’t know how far they have destroyed the integrity of the wood. As such, it is important that houses and buildings with wood components be tested for the presence of these wood borers, thus the Termite (WDI) Inspection Report.
